What stories have been influential in my life?
The first would have to be “Hyperion” by Dan Simmons. I personally prefer the old cover to this book, but the story is going to be the same inside, so I guess I don’t mind this change to much.
Why is Hyperion so influential, while it isn’t the first Sci-fi book that I read it is one of the first and only books/series to make me emotional. The first time I finished reading the series I could not pick up another book for weeks afterward. (Okay to be fair it did the second time I read it, and I knew what I was getting into that time.) The whole story line pulled me in from the beginning and made it hard to put down, even on a re-read.
It was one of the first books that my husband to be and I both read. And it will certainly help to shape any Sci-fi book that I write in the future.
The second book is the Key of light Series by Nora Roberts. The ladies pulled together by Gods and Goddess’s, working together and forming a business when they don’t know each other…Its very close to my current story. minus the breaking of a curse in real life. For more on that see my earlier blog post Partner’s Episode I.
