Sneak Peek: Through Kestrel’s Eyes

Today we have a sneak peek from author Yvonne Hertzberger’s fantasy novel, Through Kestrel’s Eyes.

Seventeen years of peace are shattered when the lords of Gharn and Lieth are toppled by traitors, throwing the land into chaos.

Liannis, the goddess’ seer, her training interrupted by the death of her mentor, must help restore the Balance. Until then Earth’s power is weakened, bringing drought, and famine. Liannis battles self-doubt and the lure of forbidden romance as she faces tests and loss. But Earth sends a vain horse and a kestrel, both with mind-speak to assist her. Time is short. The people will starve if Liannis fails to help Earth heal.

Through Kestrel’s Eyes is available through, Amazon UK, and Smashwords.

And now, an excerpt from Through Kestrel’s EyesContinue reading “Sneak Peek: Through Kestrel’s Eyes”

Some Advice On Getting Advice

Before I took that first step into the Indie Publishing world, I vowed to myself that I would always do everything in my power to produce the best work I possibly could. I wanted to be considered a professional author who delivered the goods.

When I am working on any writing project, I always keep that goal in mind.

For me, one way of achieving this goal is to ask for feedback on my work. Once I have written and edited my first draft I send it out to my critique partners. I also do this with cover design.
