Now...A little bit about me :)

Well, I realized that the main reason I created this blog was to promote my book, "Pure at Heart" by well, me--Sahana Epari. I know, I know. I'm a bit late.
Anyway, I think that its a great chance to introduce myself to people who are interested in reading my book. I am a thirteen year-old Indie author, of the supernatural fantasy novel, "Pure at Heart". Pure at Heart is my first book, and I think my best. I've spent countless hours working on my novel, and finally got a chance to publish it thanks to CreateSpace self-publishing platform.
Pure at Heart took approximately one and a half years, and it took a great deal of effort and determination, as well as the priceless support from my family and friends.
Now, my favorite genres of books are paranormal romance, science fiction, time-travel,  supernatural fantasy, urban fantasy, historical fantasy, and well, yeah--anything that includes fantasy. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE fantasy. I mean, literally all the books I read (not including the one's from school) are either fantasy or sci-fi.
Now, to "Pure at Heart". The description on my Amazon and Goodreads page aren't very descriptive. So, here you'll find a better one. It's about a group of werewolves who live in a society that has two sides--Pure and Dark. They've lived and grown up on one side, when they realize they've been lied to their whole life, and only them. Left with no other choice, the pack escapes to a whole new world of secrets, lies, and betrayal.

***If you ever come across my book, please read it and post a review on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. Thanks! If you have anymore questions, please check my contact information.

I'm kind of new at this, so... I've done a lot of things in my life, but this is one thing I've managed to squeeze my way out of. Either way, I somehow managed to complete Pure at Heart, and it has been a terrific experience. I've written many, many, many, MANY, did I mention MANY books over the years, ever since the young age of 7 years old. Six years have passed since the finishing of my first mystery short story (about 18000 words) Janestry, and I finally made my first urban fantasy novel published. I'm SO happy. Like, literally. Never had I imagined I would gather enough courage and willingness to complete this book, and truth be told--I'm proud of it. And I'm proud of the work I put into it--you know, after I realized that this book might actually be worth a shot ;P... Anyways, althought I acknowledge the fact that I am not the best writer, and it would need much more time for a 13 year old to write and edit a 348 page book, I have to say that I wouldn't wish for anything else than what I have wrote. I am completely satisfied and happy with the work I have done over the last 1.5 to 2 years. Thank, GOD, I read all those urban fantasy and paranormal romance novels. THOSE helped me SO SOSOSOSOSOSO much. I can't even explain it. I fell in love with urban fantasy novels after I read Twilight. I know, I know. I actually didn't like it that much, but I knew that it was a topic that I liked very much. And look that, whoo, now I suddenly am a published author of a supernatural novel? Twilight wasn't the best, I knew that, and there were DOZENS of books better than that. Anyways, I guess this is not the end, but the beginning (of a new era, maybe?). I want to write more and more books over the years and I hope that Pure at Heart isn't the end. In fact, it's just a start. A start through a whole knew world of being an author and selling and buying and reading books :) I love books, and although my time to read decreases as I grow older, my love will always be there. If there is one thing that I couldn't survive without, it would be books. Thanks, again :) And please read Pure at Heart. I would appreciate ANY types of reviews just so I can work on my author-ism.
