Sabine A Reed is the author of The Black Orb, a fantasy ebook available from Uncial Press. She also writes articles on Suite101 about writing and publishing.
A little about you, first. Do you have any hidden talents?
SAB: Well, the only hidden talent I’ve discovered so far is my ability to create wonderful stories of wizards, witches, magical weapons, daring quests and reluctant but brave heroines.
Tell us about your book, The Black Orb – what themes does it tackle?
SAB: The main theme is the triumph of good versus evil and greed, but the story is about a sister’s love for her brother and her commitment to save him despite all the odds against her. She doesn’t have any magical abilities but still she fights a battle against a queen armed with a potent talisman.
Is there anything you want readers to take away from your writing? What?
SAB: I want the readers to immerse themselves in the beautiful settings I create; the pristine world untouched by human greed, the old world charm and beauty. Also, I want them to enjoy the journey along with the heroine, to feel her pain, experience her triumphs and despair over the obstacles that bar her way.
Which other indie authors do you recommend or admire?
SAB: Amanda Hocking, J A Konrath, Michelle L. Levigne
Lastly, what question should I have asked you, and why?
SAB: You should have asked me what advice I would give to new writers who are trying their best to get published.
Why? Well, because I’ve struggled to learn the craft of writing. It had been a wonderful journey and I want to share my knowledge to help others. This is why I have my own blog Writing and Publishing Resource to give tips and suggestions to new writers. You can check it at www.sabineareed.com
