I’m going to start this post off with the review first.
Series (if applicable): War and Wilderness
Author: Jordy Leigh
Publisher (if applicable): N/A, indie book
Genre(s): Christian, Young Adult, Suspense
Wow! This book had so much suspense. I loved it!
From the first page, I was hooked. The survival aspect of the story was interesting and made me realize how hard it would be to survive in nature. Louise resisted God so many times… but it had a great ending.
Although now, we’re left on a cliffhanger.
I found it intriguing when Louise almost gave up. It makes me wonder what I’d do if I were in her shoes. This shows that you need God, and with Him, you can get through anything! I can’t wait for the next book in this series to come out… 😀
There could be some scary events that happen, but it’s a great book and I recommend it!
Interview with the Author
I can’t think of an initial catalyst; I’ve enjoyed writing for as long as I can remember. At first, it was no more than a recreational hobby. Somewhere along the way, however, I slipped into the mindset that I wanted to be published. Perhaps what inspired me to become an author is the reality that there are stories worth telling. The thing that inspires me to continue writing is that there’s a God worth telling about.
2. What inspired you to write Isolated?
A friend told me that I should turn my dream into a book. By ‘dream’ I don’t mean an aspiration or ambition but a literal head-on-the-pillow dream I had one night. I don’t have a habit of telling my dreams to everyone, but I guess this one just came up in the context of our conversation and the rest is history.
3. Is Louise based off of a person you know?
4. Did you need to research certain things to write Isolated?
5. How long did it take to plan Isolated?
6. Will Isolated be available in paperback/hardcover in the future? God willing. That’s the best I can say right now. I sure hope so, and I want to work towards it, but I’m currently waiting on one key player in that process. Even for self-published authors such as myself, it’s a team effort.
Thank you Jordy Leigh for the interview!
From as young as seven years old, Jordy Leigh filled exercise booklets with stories until her hand hurt. She loves a good book, but ultimately she hopes that hers will offer something of greater value than short-lived entertainment. In reading them, may you learn more about the God of the Bible.
Jordy Leigh hopes that Isolated will at once quench your desire for compelling fiction and nourish your soul with wholesome truth.
Isolated will be released on September 11! Pre-order it on Amazon now. 🙂
