Angela Ardis ~ THE BLOCK: Truth Revealed

Angela Ardis

My name is Angela Ardis. With 37 years of writing experience, 5 published books, over 100 published articles and countless collaborative television, movie, live production and animation projects completed and in the works, I find myself still enamored with the craft of writing.

The art of writing has always allowed me a sense of unrestricted freedom that I’ve adored since the age of seven. My format is mine without apologies.  This art relinquishes the extreme structure that other art forms require.

My new novel, THE BLOCK: Truth Revealed, the sequel to THE BLOCK, will be released August 1, 2014.  I’m so excited for this book to get into readers’ hands.  The really amazing aspect of this series is that you don’t have to have read the first book to enjoy any of the others. However, it will initiate curiosities that will lead you back to the book which proceeded the one being read.

Nevertheless, for those who have been following the series, THE BLOCK: Truth Revealed will satisfy questions from book one, set up curiosities pulling you into book three and will ignite a yearning for the final installment THE BLOCK: The Labyrinth which will hopefully be released in 2015.

I knew a reader who was so enthralled with trying to figure out stories that (in his mind) would sell, he wasn’t tapping into his own creative process.  He was attempting to copy someone else’s idea for the sake of the possibility, not certainty, of a big paycheck.

Angela Ardis THE BLOCK Truth RevealedMy advice: “Write what motivates you.  Don’t try to duplicate ‘Harry Potter’ or Stephen King.  Create stories that are yours.  The fans/readers will come and eventually, so will the paydays.  Write stories you’re proud of, instead of imitating what’s already been done.”

It might take a few months or a few years to complete your project.  The reality is that it doesn’t matter.  Keep grinding, stay focused and know the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is something you innately have within you at all times. The key to getting to that pot is to actively, diligently, passionately, and consistently work on your gift.

Be blessed, stay focused and true to your passion!
