The Wedding cover reveal

Hello everyone!

I’m super excited to share some exciting news: my friend Livy Lynn Jarmusch is releasing the third book in her trilogy, The Tales of Tarsurella , The Wedding!

If you haven’t read The Coronation or The Rebellion yet, definitely check them out, and also my reviews on those two last year.

So without further ado…

Isn’t it gorgeous? I love how Livy portrays faith, truth and hope in such a cute way. And the Royal Family of Tarsurella are purely awesome. I can’t wait to see what they get up to as the eldest son King Addison marries the amazing Vanessa Bennett.

Here’s a little snippet of what’s going to be in store:

Surprise Party for Kellyn Roth!

Hello everyone!

This is a special surprise for Kellyn Roth, which is a token of thanks from some of your blogger friends, organised by the awesome Angela R Watts. Kellyn, I thank God for the amazing work you’ve done in the writing community, and I’m so thankful that you’re in my life. You’re a blessing, and an amazing gal, so you deserve every bit of thanks and more 💖

Enjoy the post, Kellyn!!!

Dear Kelly,

    Sometimes I will start a sentence and I don’t even know where it’s going. But you finish those sentences. You, my beautiful friend, are the Dwight to my Michael. (Only you’re prettier. And we’re women.) No matter the weather, you’re there for it all, and I thank you. Thank you for our talks about Jesus. Thanks for the rants and rambles about fiction and life and everything in between. Thank you for the laughs. Thank you for your support.

    I could give a pretty long list of why you’re awesome but I’ll list 3 reasons. 1.) You’re God’s kiddo. 2.) You’re my friend. 3.) You’re a redhead. Just kidding, that’s not reason 3. Reason 3 is because you promised me Harrington. Haha.

    I love you, girl. God’s with you through it all and I’m honored to be a part of your life.

    Love,

    Angie Watts

Kellyn,

    You’re the first indie teen I read a book by, you made me realize I could write. I remember reading the last page of The Dressmaker’s Secret and swiping to your bio . . . I was shocked when I saw that a girl my age had written it, yeah, I still haven’t finished writing a book but I will. Thanks for the encouragement and support as well as the late night sprints!

    I’ve been scarce since I left The Young Writer’s Workshop and we haven’t talked much but your blog posts are as good as ever if not better. Yeah, I’m totally writing this too late . . . I still hope you like the letter, night!

    Abikay

   

    Dear Kellyn,

    Surprise! It has been a while since you have heard from me. This time I am the one writing you a letter (Shiv says hi to Jordy!).  I have always admired your writing and your determination. Your characters are always so real!

Blessings,

Rebecca

    Hey Kell,

    I remember first meeting you on the Young Writers Workshop. You’ve definitely come a way since then. I know it’s hard being an indie author in your genre, but keep fighting, okay? You rock, and I know I’ll be seeing you around on the web.

    Cheers,

    Germaine

Dear Kell,

“Yes, I know Kellyn Roth.” This is the first sentence I remember hearing about you years ago, by one author to another. When you later joined The Chatter Box, I was blessed to begin that getting-to-know-you process for myself. I’d love to share three ways knowing you has blessed me. 

You’re dedicated. In every area of life I’ve seen—writing, editing, publishing, your walk with God, business, and more—you don’t just get ideas, you act on them, and when you have a goal, you pursue it. What an inspiring example. 

You’re positive. Wow. Your joyful attitude is such a blessing. In every circumstance, you give thanks – and in so doing, you accomplish God’s will for your life (1 Thess. 5:18). 

You’re humble. You’re honest about your weak points (no need to hide you’re human!) without being self-deprecating. You’re willing to learn and not afraid to ask questions! And so you’re able to receive God’s grace. 

There’s much more, but these are just a few areas where I see Christ especially strongly in you. Keep seeking first God’s kingdom, and I promise (God promises!) all other things shall be added for you. And today I’m so blessed to be able to say for myself, “I know Kellyn Roth.”

Blessings to you!

Erika Mathews 

Hiya Kell!
If I were to play a game of describing every fellow artist I know, the first word that’d come to mind for you would be “inspiring.” Because it’s true. Ever since we came across each other on the YWP NaNoWriMo forums, and then later online (which was, truly, a miracle in itself!), you’ve been such an amazing inspiration to me. And no doubt many of the other young writers you know feel the same way. True thought is in every blog post, every beautiful story you write for us and for God. You’re a part that can never be replaced in our community. 🙂

 Wishing you the best in every blessing,

 ~ Merie

Dear Kell,

Keep blogging and writing books! They’re encouraging and inspiring to so many people in the blogosphere and indie author world around you!! I love reading your posts with your perspective on different topics… they always make me think! (I also love reading your ranty reviews on Goodreads! 😝) I think you were one of the people who inspired me to start writing my own books. Before 2018, I had no idea teen girls around my age even wrote books!! It’s pretty fun. Anyway, never forget the gifts God has given you. 

-Liz

Dear Kellyn,

I don’t have much to say except thank you. Thanks for being a homeschooled, historical fiction indie author friend. I love reading your books, yes, but I value your friendship and helpful blog posts even more. Keep growing in the Lord!

 

Hanna Kraft

Kellyn,

We don’t know each other well, but I just wanted to give you a shout-out for your amazing cover design! You’re an inspiration to indie authors and freelance cover designers alike!

~Kaitlyn Krispense

Dear Kell,

HEY WHADDUPPPPPP MY HOMEBRO

I hope you know that I love you SO much. Like CRAZY much. Even though sometimes I don’t see you for long long stretches of time, you’re one of my bestest buddies and I appreciate you for all that you do.

You’re a seriously inspiring person⁠⁠—competent, organized, and wicked creative. I don’t know how you get everything done that you do (writing buttloads of awesome books, running multiple blogs and social media accounts, running A LEGIT BUSINESS, TEACHING CLASSES, having ANOTHER JOB on the side, AND MORE?!?!??), but my current theory is it’s some sort of blood magic.

Thank you for being you, for sticking to your values, and for being an awesome friend.

I hope your summer’s going good!!!!!

TURTLE POWER GO

Love,

Sonja

Dear Kellyn,

I could say a lot of things. I could say thank you for your determination to make it into the publishing world (which you have done, considerably well), that I admire your blog posts and your books and you, that your puppies are ADORABLE, that it’s crazy to think how you’re juggling teaching and a business and writing and another job when the rest of us are still struggling with algebra—- and all of that woulda been true. 

But for today, the person I wanna acknowledge is Kell. Not the author, or teacher, or business professional persay, just Kell the person. Y’know, the one that’s not afraid to speak her mind, or stand up for something she believes in. The one that enjoys a good romance. The one that likes pink but doesn’t consider herself that much of a girly girl (what a weird label anyhow). The one that’s struggling. And going through a lot. And having hard times at times. And hasn’t let life crush her- yet. This turned out surprisingly dark but you know what I’m trying to say. XD Thank you for being you. 

That’s… that’s all I got. 

Jo-a-ruth

Hi Kell,

When I first heard about you I thought, wow that is a weird name, then as I got to know you a little bit better(mostly through blog tours and your instagram) I’’ve seen that you are also a really cool person and an interesting writer. My first thought however remains, you have an interesting name.

Esther

Hi Kellyn,

You’re pretty amazing, you know that? I watch from afar as you start businesses and publish books and mentor writers — including me. Thanks for helping with my random, frantic indie publishing questions and for being an amazing formatter.

Truly. You were an answer to so many prayers when it came to publishing my first book. 🙂

I know you are a valued member of YWW, and have halped so many young writers more than you think. Keep being such an amazing friend, writer, and ecourager. Thanks for sharing your wisdom with the rest of us.

In Christ,

Sara

Dear Kellyn,

You, my adorable friend, are a flash of fireworks in a dark night, a rainbow amongst clouds, and a highlight in my online life!  When I first joined the social media a few years ago, I couldn’t have anticipated all the amazing people I would meet . . . and you were one of them.  I love your hilarious sense of humor (you never fail to make me laugh!) and your down to earth positivity. You are a constant bright spot, no matter where you are shining.  You are strong, funny, quirky, and one of a kind. Thank you for all the thoughtful conversations, all the laughter, and all the gifs. The Thanksgiving / Christmas wars would have certainly never been the same without you!  *wink* Congratulations on the incredible journey you have had so far and best wishes on all that is ahead for you. I’m so proud of the wonderful Christian young woman that you are. May His perfect path be clear to you always!  I praise God for the blessing of Kellyn Roth.

Love, Allison Tebo

Hey Kellyn,

When I first heard that there were Christian fiction authors, I actually found you through Angela Watts and from there; starting following your journey writing and encouraging other writers. I just wanted to thank you for your encouraging words and helping me understand that Christian fiction and historical fiction are more than just “boring.”

Thanks to you, I’ve started taking my own writing seriously and even if that isn’t what I do for a living, I know that I can create a book that speaks to people.

Thank you so much,

Joshua Reid 

Hey Kellyn, 

You, girl, are awesome.  I don’t know how you do it — working, writing A LOT, running a business complete with contractors, and being that epic all at once…when most folks your age are walking with knocking knees to their first college classes or trying to figure out where they’re going in life.  You know that’s right (cue Burton Guster/Dule Hill voice). When I first “met” you, albeit only online, I was amazed to find out that you weren’t even a high school graduate yet, since you seemed so mature and professional.  You’re an inspiration, not only to your readers, but to your community and the online writing community (communities?) as well. Watching you do your thing on the interwebs is always pretty awesome and inspiring — I hope you know how special and influential you are, just by being you, because that’s pretty fantastic.  

Keep the faith and keep being you! 🙂 

Michaela Bush 

Kellyn, 

We’ve never met, and the most interaction we’ve had is through comments on your blog and social media. But I still remember when I first heard of your existence. 

I was sitting in a choir practices and the lady next to me turned to me. She knew I was an avid reader (book lovers, unite!) and was telling me about the surprisingly good book she had read by a young author that she thought I would love. it was the first Chronicles of Alice and Ivy book, and she was amazed by it. She told she only picked it up because a homeschooler wrote it, and she didn’t even know homeschoolers could write. 

Not knowing I was a homeschool graduate, I sat and listened (trying not to laugh) at her explanations about homeschooling and how you had broken all of the molds she had concocted in her mind about it. 

And that sent me on a quest to discover who this girl was. And I found your books, and I found your blog, and I have been blessed and encouraged by both. 

Kellyn, I love the way you deal with tough issues, and you don’t shy away from them. Your blog has more than once encouraged me when I am struggling. Your books are ones I turn to when I need the comfort of old friends. And, more than that, your writing always point me towards Christ as the ultimate answer, and I have been thankful for it.

Please, continue to share your writing with the world. We need more of what you have to offer the world, more of the beauty you see and capture in the black and white words that you put down onto paper. We need more of your fearlessness to tackle the issues that people tend to ignore, and to bring clarity and light to them. 

Thank you, for being such a fearless, bold writer. 

With Joy,

Kaitlyn S. 

Dear Kell, 

I can’t even quite remember how we first met – it must have been on Goodreads somehow – but it feels like I’ve known you my entire blogging life (which is a mere two years haha) or that our getting to know each other was so slow and easy that the line between not knowing and being friends has been blurred to indistinguishable. (<< wow what a sentence)

Anyhow I’m so incredibly blessed and honored and happy to know you. You inspire me so much. You’re so real – like you don’t put on airs – and so accomplished and almost superhuman at the same time that I just … both look up to you and yet don’t feel like I do? Does that make sense? Maybe not. Moving on …

Some favorite memories :

  • Signing up for review copies of your books for the first time without knowing what they were about (?!) and being skeptical when I saw their premise

  • But being totally sucked in and ridiculously impressed and 100% convinced of your skills

  • You joining us for the journey of TGMSH even though it’s been slacking a lot haha. I’m just so honored to have you on as consultant with all your experience

  • Fighting over Little Women 😑 

  • Your post about why experienced bloggers should be nice to new bloggers

  • Seeing Reveries & Co. grow from scratch (#proud)

  • My dad complimenting you without knowing who you are bc I told him about Reveries & Co. being started by a 17 yo and he was just, wow this girl is so entrepreneurial (that’s the right word, right??)  and I was like 👍

  • Being in the same cabin for two camp nanos

Anyway. Just want to say it’s a pleasure to be your friend and here’s to many more years of knowing each other. May God continue to bless you, dear girl. 

cheers. 

Lisa

Hey Kellyn! 

I’ll be honest, all I can think of to tell you is this: Just immerse yourself in the Word and pray. 

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

  • Philippians 4:4-8

(Here’s a few others too: Proverbs 3:5-6 / Psalm 139:23-24 / 1 Peter 5:6-9)

I’ll be praying for you,

Hannah K

Dear Kellyn,

You were the first ever teen author that I encountered. Before that, I didn’t even realise that people could pursue their writing dreams from a young age. Thank you so much for being such an inspiration to me with your books, your awesome blog posts, and your life in general. God’s going to bless you for everything you’ve done and for everything you will do. 

Keep making people smile!

Blessings, 

Medomfo xxx

Dear Kellyn,

It’s been such a joy to work with you and develop a friendship over the time we’ve known each other. You are such a talented and creative young lady and I’m proud to call you friend! May God so richly bless you this year and every coming year. Hugs and happiest of birthdays to you, girlie! Oh, and welcome to the 18 Club.  

Blessings,

Sarah Grace Grzy

Dear Kellyn, 

Even though we have hardly had any interaction with each other, I have really enjoyed reading your blog and seeing your love for Jesus shine through your blog and your writing. I have enjoyed the few times that we have talked. You have also inspired me a lot since you were one the first teen writers I meet when I joined Goodreads 2 years ago. I cannot wait to see how God uses you next in your life. I hope you continue to be bold and blog what God puts on your heart because you are not only an encouragement to those around you but also a great inspiration for others to be bold. 

Thank you for everything that you do and I pray you continue to be a light in this dark world! 

In Christ, 

Abigail Harder

How to stay Inspired with a busy life

Hello everyone!

I hope that you’ve had an amazing October.

For the writers, NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow. Well, most writers. For me, trying to do NaNoWriMo in November is one of the most stressful things ever, especially when it goes on top of school, exams, orchestras, you name it.

So what am I going to do in November? How am I going to keep being productive with my dreams if I’ve got all of this work?

Well, guess what? I’m still really motivated no matter how busy I am. There is a way that you can still be productive and motivated to achieve your dreams whilst having a busy life.

Do you want to know?

Just sit down, and keep reading my friend:

1. Listen to Music

Honestly, that’s one of the best inspiration sources ever! One of the reasons why I am always busting with ideas is because I listen to music 24/7. If you want to get encouraged, inspired and motivated, then just press play on your Spotify or whatever you use to listen to music 😊

2. Read, read, read

Seriously, just read! Whether it’s a book, magazine, newsfeed, blogpost or even the crazy thing that I’d social media! There will be moments when you’re reading when you will suddenly go, “Oo! I’ve got to use this at some point!” God gave us eyes- we might as well use our eyes to inspire us!

3. Set monthly goals

As you know, I set 4-6 goals a month, major or minor, to complete. Whether you set goals daily, weekly or monthly, knowing that you have goals will motivate you to complete them, and it will inspire you to do even more things that maybe you wouldn’t usually do.

4. Journal

Yeah, I love journalling. Whether it is through art or writing, just capturing what’s happened in the day is an amazing feel, and sometimes when I look back, I suddenly get an idea for a project that I could do in the future.

So there you have it. 4 Ways to help you stay inspired even when you’re busy.

How about you?

Do you have ways to keep you motivated when you are busy?

SpireGirl Interview: Meet Michaela!

Hello everyone!

Today, I am interviewing Michaela from Tangled up in Writing, another lovely blogger for SpireGirl.

1. When did you start blogging?

I’ve blogged off and on for about 6 years, but I started doing it with dedication in 2017.

2. What’s your blog about?

My blog is geared towards helping Christian readers/writers find great books and writing resources/tips as well as discussing my own writing process 😊

3. Do you have any other hobbies or jobs?

. I’m an equestrian and play the violin; I also work as an aide for disabled individuals.

4. Are you working on any projects at the moment?

I’m always working on something, haha! Right now I have two series to finish and several standalone books to outline.

5. What’s your favourite Bible verse and why?

My favorite Bible verse is Joshua 1:9. It reminds me that God is with me no matter what and that I shouldn’t be scared of what the future brings because God’s already there.

6. Who is (one of) your hero(es) and why?

Might sound clichè, but my Mom’s my hero. She inspires me to pursue my goals, encourages me in our faith, and is my biggest fan.

7. What tips do you have for Christian girls and women who want to use their gifts to serve God and achieve their dreams?

Don’t try to bury or hide your gifts because they’re leading you somewhere that you’re afraid of — say, teaching or public speaking — because God has a plan for you and will give you the strength you need to go down that path. Sometimes, the easiest path is not the right one. Pray continually to keep in touch with Him so you can use your gifts to their fullest extent, and never allow yourself to grow stagnant. Finally, don’t let the world corrupt your gifts — stay true to what you know is right as a follower of God even if you’re scorned or treated badly for it.

Thank you so much Michaela! Be sure to check out her blog Tangled up in Writing this week for all kinds of encouragement.

How about you?

What hobbies have you recently become more dedicated in?

Posted in Birthday, Blogging, Fun, SpireGirl

Happy one year birthday WFAGG!

Oh. My goodness! It’s been one year since I started this blog! It’s crazy to think that one year ago today, I posted my first ever post, nervous about whether it will really kick off.

And it has, in an even more beautiful way that I could ever have imagined.

I have participated in more than 20 book and website launches! And this is my 53rd blog post! Isn’t it crazy? But nothing is crazy with God’s help.

And this wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for the love and support of you, my readers. So thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I pray that this blog will continue to bless more people for the future.

SpireGirl interview: Meet Lydia!

Hello everyone!

Today, I also have the privilege of interviewing another SpireGirl blogger, Lydia from Spoonful of Surprises 😊

1. When did you start blogging?

I started my blog, Spoonful of Surprises, almost a year ago.

2. What’s your blog about?

A lot of things, honestly. 😂 I try to stay in the line of encouraging other girls to embrace their faith and creativity.

3. Do you have any other hobbies or jobs?

I love handlettering, writing, watercolors, and just about anything artsy. I would love to make that into a business someday. ❤️

4. Are you working on any projects at the moment?

I’m working on creating a YouTube channel. Brainstorming, filming, making thumbnails, etc. I’m also working on a story that I’m super pumped about.

5. What’s your favourite Bible verse and why?

Hmmm. It’s really hard to choose. There’s so many good ones!! My favorite one just may be Jeremiah 29:11. When I’m getting stressed or worried, it’s SO helpful to know that God knows what He’s doing with my life.

6. Who is (one of) your hero(es) and why?

One of my biggest heroes is Queen Esther. 👑💕 She leapt over so many obstacles to fulfill the purpose that God had for her.

7. What tips do you have for Christian girls and women who want to use their gifts to serve God and achieve their dreams?

Remember that YOU MATTER. No matter how many times you may feel like no one is reading or listening, God gave you your dreams for a reason, so keep on keeping on. 💖😉

Thank you so much Lydia! Make sure that you check out her blog Spoonful of Surprises this week for posts of inspiration and encouragement 😊

How about you?

Are you into art as a hobby or even as a career?

SpireGirl interview : Kaelyn!

Hello everyone!

Today, we’re getting to meet Kaelyn, one of our lovely bloggers for SpireGirl 2018!

1. When did you start blogging?

I started blogging in 2015 and then I stopped. I came back to it in the year 2017 and I have been blogging since.

2. What’s your blog about?

My blog is about Jesus, what I am learning about Him, mission trips I have hard, vacations, and other cool blogs I know about. 🙂

3. Do you have any other hobbies or jobs?

I love to read and I enjoy writing and making up stories. I also love to sing and I sing in a choir.

4. Are you working on any projects at the moment?

Well, I have some school projects, a series I am doing on my blog. Plus, I am working on some of my story ideas.

5. What’s your favourite Bible verse and why?

Right now is is Psalms 46:10, ” Be still and know that I am God.” This verse has been coming back over and over again and God just telling me to rest.

6. Who is (one of) your hero(es) and why?

Jesus is my number one hero because without Him I would not have salvation. Another one of my heroes is a doctor I had in fourth grade when I had a brain disease. He helped me find the right treatment, with God’s help. : )

7. What tips do you have for Christian girls and women who want to use their gifts to serve God and achieve their dreams?

Well, I say to pray continually, talk to God, and just be in His presence. What I like to do is journal with God. I put down my dreams, experiences, and what I am learning with Jesus. In Philippians 1:6 it says, ” And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” Also, I encourage you to read Jeremiah 29:11 and Matthew 7:7.

Thank you so much Kaelyn! And be sure to check out her blog Kaelyn’s Life this week for inspiration and encouragement 😊

How about you?

Do any of you have blogs?

My birthday in 2018

Hello Everyone.

As you probably have guessed, today is my birthday.

So I thought that I’d journal some of the events that happened today.

It started on Friday when my little friends from Reception gave me a really sweet birthday card.

Then, on Sunday, the fun began.

I woke up to receive birthday messages from my friends at church, school and abroad.

I had wonderful gifts from my family, which were exactly what I needed as a writer: a good book by one of my favourite authors and a piece of technology.

We then went to church, where my youth worker gave me the birthday task of doing the reading, which is one of my favourite jobs at church. I wore my little badge and read. Then, as I went back to my seat, the minister asked if it was my birthday and, after I said yes, got a round of applause from the congregation and many birthday wishes after the service!

I was given these flowers from friend at church and a card from another.

When I got home, I did a lot of outlining for my novel. It snowed a little, but sadly, I didn’t have my camera to capture the beauty.

In the evening, I went to one of my favourite restaurants with my family, and ended up having someone from school as our waiter!

Overall, it was a wonderful birthday and a wonderful weekend.

How about you?

How was your weekend.
