Let me introduce you to one of my first writing friends,
To say that Randy Lindsay is a great support is an understatement.
He's not only a support to me but to many,
many others in the writing community.
And the guy can write!
His writing is easy to read and his stories are gripping.
I wasn't surprised when his book was picked up for publication.
So when I was invited to participate in his blog tour for his debut novel I jumped at the chance.
Not only do I get to read
(reread, actually. Beta buddy!)
but I get to blog
ON THE BOOK BIRTHDAY!
That's right, today's the day.
So congrats Papa Lindsay on such a beautiful new book!
Love the color and the simplicity of the cover.
The Gathering is about the end of times and what could happen on both the familial and governmental levels. It follows the Williams family as they deal with scarcity, relationships, church duties, security, and survival. It also follows the Secretary of State, Calvin McCord, as he deals with global intrigues, divisive parties, and ethics in politics. The stakes are higher than my writing is able to imply. Lindsay's writing is solid and the story is a page turner. Recommended to fans of The Great and the Terrible series. I agree with Elana Johnson when she says that it's a "fantastic addition to the LDS genre."
