About Carolynn Amara

A young man named Alex Hernandez III died while serving in Kandahar, Afghanistan on May 12, 2012 at the age of 21. The main character in "Unbroken" and "Unspoken" was named in his honor. I want the world to know your name and think of you if only for a moment so that you will never be forgotten, Alex. RIP mi héroe.

The story UNBROKEN came as a result of my first Camp Nanowrimo in June 2012 and a conversation with a friend who was getting ready to come home from Afghanistan. The book was written in 28 days. I never expected it to be read by anyone but a handful of Facebook friends. I'm my own editor, publisher, graphics designer, and PR rep. I'm just a lady in her basement pouring her heart into her novels, raising kids and working to survive right along side the rest of you. This story was never about making money. It is about awareness and understanding. Something we can all afford to give, no matter what financial bracket we fall under.

As a fellow NaNowrimo writer, I read the book for it's description and because you were also a Nanowrimo participant. I read it in a day and really enjoyed it. It's an amazing book for something that was written so fast and almost unedited. It's inspirational, it has great characters and a very good pace. It's an hymn to true love really and deals realistically with post traumatic syndrome, not afraid to delve into the subject.

You say you'd like to edit it some more. So here a a few things worth mentioning. There are some typos and the use of a prologue at the end instead of an epilogue. I personally feel the last fifth of the novel (81.5% in on Kindle version) could be compacted a little. There are parts that drag on a bit with unnecessary information and feels less crisp than the rest.

You could easily ask money for this if you edited it a bit more and unfortunately cut the song lyrics that would be copyright infringement, but it's too good to be free! :)
