I’ve been spending the week here in Cape Canaveral, where it’s been a healthy mix of sun and rain, though the high humidity is...
“Our job in this life is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it.” ― Steven Pressfield
“My task, which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel ― it is, before all, to make you see.” ― Joseph Conrad
“You write in order to change the world...if you alter, even by a millimeter, the way people look at reality, then you can change it.” ― James Baldwin
In the dark realms of the Underworld, the demons hunger for revenge against their greatest Enemy who thwarted their schemes imprisoned their brethren. Their king plots his revenge to assure their victory, and the stakes have never been higher: another defeat will mean never-ending torment in the bowels of Sheol. And while the struggle for mankind’s allegiance has been lost, the struggle for mankind itself is just beginning…
This is a story of the First Age, when dragons and giants freely roamed the earth and mankind lived for hundreds of years. Paradise was fresh in our memories and still sought by those who yearned for it. The earth was young, unmarred, and bountiful -- and ripe for subjugation by men, giants, and demons.
About the Author
Welcome to the website of C.W. Hambleton (Chris Hambleton). I mostly write fiction novels with some non-fiction ones throw in, along with blogging every so often. I wrote my first book called "Project Exodus" in the fall of 1992 when I started college, but soon became busy with school, career, family, and kids. I didn't start writing again until about 2007 and ended up publishing my first book "The Time of Jacob's Trouble" in 2008. And the rest (as they say) is history!
Aside from writing books and writing software, my other interests include traveling, hiking, volunteering, and devouring great books (and of course, I'm on Goodreads!).
“Blogging is to writing what extreme sports are to athletics: more free-form, more accident-prone, less formal, more alive. It is, in many ways, writing out loud.” ― Andrew Sullivan
A few years ago, my men’s group from church did a great study about “The Second Half” by Patrick Morley...
With the growing popularity of audiobooks, I recently decided to wade into those waters and had “The Author of Life” made into an audiobook...
“There is a certain amount of intrigue that gets created by revealing portions of the book and, in the process, generating a certain amount of interest. Often, authors do this by releasing a few chapters online or even releasing film-like trailers.” ―Ravi Subramanian
“The goal, I suppose, any fiction writer has, no matter what your subject, is to hit the human heart and the tear ducts and the nape of the neck and to make a person feel something about the characters are going through and to experience the moral paradoxes and struggles of being human.” ― Tim O'Brien
“Nonfiction is both easier and harder to write than fiction. It's easier because the facts are already laid out before you, and there is already a narrative arc. What makes it harder is that you are not free to use your imagination and creativity to fill in any missing gaps within the story.” ― Amy Bloom
“Stories of all lengths and depths come from different parts of the cave. For a novel, you must lay in mental, physical and spiritual provision as for a siege or for a time of hectic explosions, while a short story is, or can be, a steady, timed flame like the lighting of a blow lamp on a building site full of dry tinder.” ― Jane Gardam
