Introducing Knight StarJoy!

Welcome back to the Woods, dear traveler!

After traveling over the Wood and meeting all sorts of wonderful Knights, I took a break to gather my thoughts. But my rest was not permanent. A Knight known as StarJoy was more than happy to answer my questions.. I found her seated at her instrument, playing with a skill not found in mortals. After listening intently to her music, I asked her my questions and she gave lovely answers with a smile on her face. Here are her answers, though I sadly couldn’t not include the music that accompanied the words.

1. How did you discover the wondrous world of Goldstone Wood? Was it a random find, or a recommendation? Did you fall in love right away or was it gradual? 

My friend Maya Joelle recommended it to me. I liked it by the end of Heartless, but Veiled Rose swayed my opinion a little (I didn’t think it was very interesting and it featured a character that at the time I had a very low opinion of). By the end of Veiled Rose and definitely partway through Moonblood, though, I was completely hooked.

Introducing Knight Maya Joelle

Welcome back to the Woods, dear traveler,

After interviewing the lovely Kendra and the intriguing Lemon Duck, I headed to an ancient city, full of crumbling ruins, to find the Knight Maya Joelle. I discovered her in the tower of a dusty library, surrounded by old books (some of which were probably magical). It was with great difficulty that I pulled her away from the books long enough to answer my questions. But it was worth it in the end.

1. How did you discover the wondrous world of Goldstone Wood? Was it a random find, or a recommendation? Did you fall in love right away or was it gradual? 

I initially discovered the books through the Silmaril Awards in 2019, when everyone was raving about Eanrin and I had no idea who he was 😂 After some digging around various blogs, I learned that he was from the Tales (and that everyone seemed to love him — and the whole series — but especially him). I didn’t start reading them until February 2020, when Hawkeye (another Knight — the one interviewing me xD) texted me and told me that she really enjoyed this fantasy series and I ought to try it.

Introducing Knight Lemon Duck!

Welcome back to the Woods, dear traveler,

After interviewing the lovely Knight Kendra, I gathered my courage and rode into the Wood to find the Knight Lemon Duck! It took longer than I was expecting to find the very yellow duck, given everyone I met knew her by a different name, but once I found her, she was ecstatic to answer the questions I posed to her. Here they are!

The lovely Knight Kendra volunteered to be the first to answer a series of questions about the Tales Of Goldstone Woods and her experience with reading them, as well as thoughts and opinions about the stories. Here are her answers!

1.       How did you discover the wondrous world of Goldstone Woods? Was it a random find, or a recommendation? Did you fall in love right away or was it gradual? 

I discovered it through my dear friend in-real-life, MiddleEarthMusician, who let me borrow Heartless. And if I remember correctly, it was love-at-first-read. I was HOOKED. 😀 

2.       Who is your favorite character? And second favorite character?

My hands-down favorite character would have to be Eanrin. Don’t we all love him?! And as a second favorite… definitely Rose Red. I can relate to her in many ways, but especially when it comes to being really loyal to the people we love.
