In this episode of The Happy Rant Podcast Ted, Ronnie, and Barnabas do what they always do and wander to and fro through a variety of topics:
- An update on yoda tweeting
- Blurbing Echo Island
- Left Behind rip offs
- The type of novel we would write
- Self-publishing benefits
Check out Echo Island, Jared C. Wilson’s new novel. In his own words, “The book is aimed at young adults, probably ages 13 to 19 or so, but I really think the literary quality of it and the mystery aspect of it may afford it a broader appeal. I would say that any reader who has enjoyed the fiction of C.S. Lewis (either Narnia or the Space Trilogy, or both), has an appreciation for speculative fiction (sci-fi, apocalyptic, etc.), mysterious or “meta-fiction” will like the book. Any reader who enjoys a more sophisticated adventure story heavily influenced by ancient myths and classic literature—and how a story full of these elements might say something about God and human existence/freedom—will enjoy Echo Island.
