Authors Supporting Authors

Author: Nathan Carriker 

“No matter how trite it may sound, the truth remains: may people, myself included, work well enough alone, but no one can do their best relying only upon their own talent, training, and experience to critique their own product.” Nate

Nate’s words sing to my heart. I actually met Nate on line almost two-years ago when he was feeling like giving up. He had written the novel. He had the drive. Nobody would give him the opportunity to listen to the wonderful story he’d woven. We spent some time discussing how to concisely pitch his novel. It was Nate who took it to the next level. And this week I received an ARC. My heart is overwhelmed that Nate didn't give up. Mostly because his book is absolutely fantastic!

I haven’t finished reading A Silver Ring yet because I don’t want it to end—I am enjoying it too much. Nate, per your request, when I am done I know the perfect person to give this to.

A Silver Ring is a family story. A love story. An aviation story. It’s history. Nate has craftily written this family/aviation drama by shifting between now and then. His story transcends the generations of time, love, and lives lost. The pages drip with connection, and flow with passion, as he brings a family full circle. His writing is fresh, clear, and he has a talent for pulling you into the drama and then suddenly taking you to another time without losing you. 

“Every soul has a Mission—but every life has its Fate.”

Nate has a fascinating story himself. He is a pilot. He should be dead. He was a Friday Fabulous Flyer on Flight To Success on May 14, 2010. If you would like to meet the author, and read his inspirational story, please click Here

Thank you all for your continued support of authors. 

Together, we will make all our dreams come true.

Please take a moment and congratulate Nate on his great success. Oh yes, and don’t forget to click HERE to buy a copy of A Silver Ring. 

Enjoy the Journey!
