The Stump of the Terebinth Tree

Caught between fiercely battling forces of light and darkness, a young elf must find the faith and courage to save his people…and his world.

As a young desert elf, Wanderer never planned to become an assassin. But with his homeland threatened by a tyrant possessed by evil itself, he now knows that this is his chosen path. Setting out with a half-blooded she-elf and two thieving humans, he has a simple plan – assassinate the usurper before it is too late. As pain and death surround him, Wanderer must learn to rely on faith and friendship to finish this mission with both his life and sanity intact.
The Stump of the Terebinth Tree, a YA Christian Fantasy novel, is my work in progress. I finished it about a year ago and started pitching it to agents. As it turns out, my publishing efforts were premature. I've found that this novel could do with some polishing, so I am currently in the rewriting phase. I hope to have it completed by the end of 2016, but I may be overestimating my powers.

I post about my writing process from time to time. Here is my collection of blog articles in which I talk about The Stump of the Terebinth Tree.

  1. Hi Hannah,just checked out your website and saw you're mention about finding a literary agent. You might have heard of this before, but I suggest checking out The Writer's & Artist's yearbooks. They're really helpful in having the lists of publishings houses/companies, literary agents, and even tips and advice from experienced people! They've also written others on how to write, etc. I hope this helps in your search, as it has and will in mine!

    1. Rather late response to this, but: Thank you so much, Deborah! I'm going to check this out. There are so many agents and publishing houses out there that it can get overwhelming. I appreciate the comment! Best of luck with your writing!

    2. Thanks, Hannah, really hope for the best! My writing is nearly there, and I'm on my last chapter of my first draft. The only trouble is, I'm finding it a bit hard on ending it right.
      Deborah. :)

      reading so-many post of some people who were cured of HIV, but i never
      believed them, I was hurt and depressed so I was too curious and wanted to

  2. Hi, Hannah. I stumbled upon your blog via a Twitter post, and I'm so glad I did. I love humor and sarcasm and coming across a fellow believer in the writing trenches. You might already know this, but there's an online Christian writers group called ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers). As a member, you are privy to monthly online courses and critique groups, as well as many other things related and imperative to the writing craft, but those two I mentioned are well worth the cost of membership. If you are looking for feedback, critiques, encouragement, etc., on your novel, I strongly urge you to check out ACFW's critique loop. My MSS recently benefitted from the wisdom and help of these fellow novelists; I can't recommend it enough. Blessings as you continue with your WIP. The blurb sounds fun--I love elves! ;)


    1. Thank you so much for this comment, Laurie! I have heard of ACFW, but I've been on the fence about joining. But now I think I will: It sounds very helpful, and I'm sure it's a great place to meet like-minded writers.

      Thanks for taking the time to tell me about it. I appreciate it! Happy writing!

    2. Let me second Laurie's opinion. The ACFW is full of serious writers & are great people (and they have a speculative fiction group -- yay!)
