"Resilient Publishing - Finding Gems Among the Pebbles
Resilient believes that authors are artists. Every piece of work with our name on it is part of us. With every published work, we make ourselves targets for the world of readers.
No author, not…"
I’m Lynn Hardy, author of the Prophecy of the Flame series. This is a teen-rated Romantic Fantasy novel that was a Kindle Bestseller last year and will be released as a movie in 2013. I was told that you do reviews? I would love to have…"
Led by a series of dreams and encouraged by friends, Lynn Hardy began the journey to become an author. She stored her work in a computer file labeled “second job.” Writing began as a passion she could not contain and has become much more than she ever expected.
In the Fall of 2010 Prophecy of the Flame – Book One reached #1 on Amazon Kindle, shortly after Book Two in the series released. This series about a group of gamers zapped into a magical word and changed into their characters is developing a great following among fans of Fantasy and Anime as Lynn travels to conventions across the US. In the spring of 2011, Lynn released the Full Cast unabridged audio book of Book One. Created by a group of popular anime voice actors, now both fans and newcomers can hear the book come to life as every character jumps of the page with their own unique voice.
In reality, Lynn is overcome with compassion for families who are suffering through the recession and so she has created Agape Assistance – Shelter for Families One Book at a Time. (AgapeAssistance.org) Prophecy of the Flame has now attracted the attention of Hollywood. With 100% of the proceeds from Book One in the series going to Agape Assistance, there is now a full length movie now in the works.
Lynn has attended many science fiction and anime conventions and has had the privilege of serving on panels about writing and getting publishing as well as panels about directing the voice actors for the audio book. Renaissance fairs are another favorite event for the author. Seeing others dressed in costume (as she always is during book signings) makes her feel right at home.
Meeting other writers at these conventions and events who are struggling to break into the publishing field has led Lynn to start Resilient Publishing (ResilientPublishing.com). Resilient is now accepting submissions and hopes to help dozens of new authors along the path to success in the next couple of years.
The road has been longer and more complicated than she would have ever guessed--not always smooth, but filled with wonderful surprises. Like most stories, Lynn is sure that her journey has only just begun.

Some of my favourite books are:
Dragonbone Chair, Dragon Prince, Dragon Lance - Pretty much anything with Dragon in the title...
The Magic of Recluse, Magic Kingdom for Sale, yep, pretty much anything with magic in the title.
