What I Like Best About Writing; by C. L. Lewis

I’m often asked what I like best about writing. Of course, I have more than one answer, and depending on what day it is (i.e. deadline day – with or without coffee in hand) my response might vary. Be-dum ching! However, I can honestly say there are two things that stand out above the rest.  

One of my most favorite things about writing would be meeting the readers and answering their emails. I’ve been fortunate to have met some absolutely wonderful, gracious, and outstanding individuals who have welcomed me with open arms and shared their humorous stories with me. They’ve truly made my job fun! 

For example, in the picture below you can see the gentleman showing us his tattoo. My main character, Creed Griffon is the recipient of a magical tattoo which continues to spread all over his body. Knowing this, the gentleman was kind enough to show us the design of his!  His wife and daughter, which you can sort of see in the picture have matching mother/daughter tattoos (back of the neck) which I thought to be very unique!

Another favorite of mine is creating my own worlds and characters such as
those in my book, The Road to Dendura.
I often write about fictional subjects, environments, and/or creatures I
think would be interesting to see in real life. Challenging yet fun aspects to add to these are giving each character a distinct
personality and writing about events in such a way that makes them seem
as though they could really happen. At the same time, I
intertwine relevant subjects faced by teens, and kids of today such as bullying, never giving up, friendship, betrayal, and fears.

   I still remember you Paul! You make me smile every time I see your picture! 

 The gentleman pictured below had a great sense of humor but I think you can figure that out for yourself! 

On a final note, book two will
be out 2015. We have included a glossary for
those who like extra information. We’ve even added phonetic spelling to
assist with the correct pronunciation of certain names. I thank you for your interest.

Keep it Down in There!!! by C. L. Lewis Good Books for teens, tweens, and young adults

I just wanted to say thank you to the Idaho Librarians Association for having me at their convention. A good time was had by all. I enjoyed meeting the people , talking about my book – The Road to Dendura, and discussing book two in the series

It was actually funny being in the civic center with so many librarians. Why you might ask? Because it was so loud and the library is always so quiet. At any moment, I expected someone to tell me to, “Shush! Keep it down over there!” Not to mention the fact that I had a horrible feeling that my books were late – And I hadn’t even checked any out... Of course I’m just having a little fun with these guys. Truly, they are some of the hardest working, sweetest people I’ve met. To top it off, they have a sincere passion for what they do. And from their hard work and dedication, people like myself and my children benefit. Thank you ILA!

Why Your Child or Teen Doesn’t Want to Read

Part of the reason I wrote Creed Griffon in The Road to Dendura, was because the homeschool program I was using at the time, didn’t offer books that interested my kids or motivated them to read. To be honest, I’m a long time fan of children and young adult fiction novels. There’s something magical about any book that can take you away from your present and delve you into whatever trials the characters in the book are facing. However, it always seems to be this particular genre that sends me on such a journey.

The idea for Creed Griffon was conceived on a long car trip I took across the United States. I had many hours to think and drive. It was at this time, I started penning my thoughts for the story. I wrote down things that I thought would be interesting or exciting to read or listen to. Likewise, if you want to get your children to read, find out what they’re interested in! 

Many times they don’t read because they feel they’re being forced to, or they’re simply not interested in the subject. And in my opinion, comic books are just fine! Why not? There are still words on the page and the reader has to follow in sequence…

Regardless, tons of books are available on just about every subject imaginable. These days we don’t have to simply rely on the library either. Nook, I pad, and Kindle offer free downloads for thousands of titles.
