I’m Reading A Soul’s Calling By Scott Bishop

When I was the writer for Chicago Women’s Examiner at Examiner.com back in 2010, one of the editors for the region contacted me for assistance in locating local writers to contribute to other areas of their Examiner brand. He ended his request by alluding to the fact that I seemed to have an ability to recognize great talent. Although I did not ‘find’ Scott Bishop, the conversation with that editor hovers somewhere in the back of my mind while reading the story this author has woven with such keen attention to detail. I’ve reviewed a few books over the years and read a great many authors… so far, this book doesn’t disappoint

Scott Bishop recently debuted his breakout Novel, A Soul’s Calling at Amazon.com. A Soul’s Calling takes the reader through twists and turns of one man’s trex through the Himalayas, along with other great surprises. But don’t take my word for it. Book reviewers at Goodreads have been favorable in a short amount of time, giving A Soul’s Calling a 5 star rating.

The author on his work:

“A Soul’s Calling is a memoir about a man who listened to his heart instead of reason. The book, a work of speculative non-fiction, is part travelogue, part hiking adventure, with shamanism and magic woven throughout.”

The good news is that you can read excerpts of the book by visiting http://www.scott-bishop.com and take a sneak peak inside on Amazon.com here:

If you’d like a copy for review, that can be arranged through Scott as well for a limited time. Want to hear more great news? I have an interview coming up right here at clara54 next week with the author and you don’t want to miss it! I know you’ll enjoy hearing his thoughts.

Ok, now, I do want to remind those of you who are considering writing a piece for The Mirror Monologues that submissions are underway, from Feb 1st through March 31st. What do you see when you look in the mirror? Answer that question in your mirror observation and you could become the next playwright whose works grace theatres near and far.

Have you realized your calling? Would you travel to faraway lands for answers?

  1. This book sounds interesting, Clara, thanks for the info! As for my calling, not sure if I’ve totally come into it yet, but I am getting there. 🙂 In some ways, I’ve long thought of it as a walk through many seasons of our lives as we learn and grow and get there.

    Thanks for coming by the blog today. It was great to see you. I was actually just thinking about you the other day (while in the middle of a project, go figure) and thought I needed to get over and say hello. So, hello!

    Have a wonderful weekend,
    Karen

  2. Hi Karen,
    It’s always a pleasure to stop by for a visit at your Write Now. Glad to see you here, as well. I think you’d like A Soul’s Calling & I did toss your book reviewer name about to the author, just because you’re one of the best:) try to make it back for the interview next week.
    Hello & happy 2013!
