On the third day…

OK, this is the third day of this blog, I am going to stop with the day after day thing after today. Even though this is the third installment, I don’t want to overwhelm readers with blog posts everyday. First, today I wanted to thank those who have purchased my book. I hope you enjoy it and will come back and tell us what you liked (or didn’t like) or broadcast it to the world on Amazon.com or Smashwords.  Secondly, I want to thank everyone for visiting my little site here. I hope you come back often and leave comments. Lastly, here’s an update my author link to Amazon, which is: https://www.amazon.com/author/williamlstuart.


I also wanted everyone to know that I am hard at work on the rest of the series and will be sending the second book, The Amethyst, to my amazing editor Abby. She will transform the raw manuscript into a polished book. I hope reading (and reviewing) The Carnelian will encourage you to read and review the rest of The Gemstone Chronicles series! And remember, the reviews don’t have to be long or detailed. Just a few words about what you liked or didn’t like is greatly appreciated! Not only does it tell me what reader’s think, but also gives me valuable feedback to improve my writing skills! Thanks in advance!

On the second day…. the adventure continues!

On the second day on my fledgling career as an author, I sold my first book!!! I don’t know who the buyer was (unfortunately) so I can’t send them a big thank you, but if you bought it and happen to read my blog, thank you!!! And, if you happen to think of it, please consider leaving a review. I would love to know what you think of the book, and I hope it leads you to read (and review) the rest of The Gemstone Chronicles series!

So my second day was exciting! I will be posting updates as things progress in the series, so stayed tuned!! Never fear, the blog will be more than just my books. I’ll include reviews for books I read, and posts about things that interest me. Maybe you’ll find something new to read or a new hobby!

In the beginning…..

In the beginning of this literary journey, I had no idea where it would lead. But, with the unfailing encouragement of my lovely wife, the inspiration provided by my grandchildren, and the help of my brother John, I made it to this point. What point, you ask? The e-publication of my first novel, The Gemstone Chronicles Book One: The Carnelian!


In the beginning



This is an exciting event for me. I have been working on the book series for about a year. My awesome editor Abby worked her magic on the manuscript to turn my idea into the product you see today. The story is set in the north Georgia Mountains and the magical world of Celahir. The book chronicles the adventures of Aidan and Maggie, and their grandparents, Nana and Beebop! Filled with elves, magic, and a quest to recover the gemstones stolen from the Elven Bow, it will entertain readers of all ages!

If you want to purchase a copy today, I invite you to visit Smashwords at www.smashwords.com/profile/view/ugak9s911. Tomorrow (August 13) The Gemstone Chronicles Book One: The Carnelian will also be available on www.amazon.com. Visit here often to leave me your thoughts and comments on the novel and for news on the release of Book Two: The Amethyst.
