Greetings from the Green Chair
Today, I am shaking with excitement, or maybe it is too much caffeine LOL. Regardless…I am thrilled to reveal my newest book coming out in February 2021!!!!
Announcing…ULRIK! Feast your eyes on this beautiful cover! I absolutely am in love with this cover and I think the story is beautiful as well. It is going to WOW you!
"ULRIK" is available for pre-order in the Kindle Store here.
Ulrik is my first foray into time-travel fiction. I’m going to add that it could be considered a time-travel romance. However, there is so much action and adventure in this book that I hate to limit it by a simple genre description.
This book has been in the works for many years. I wrote it about five years ago and picked it up last year to see if it was in publishable condition. I went through a bunch of rewrites and clarifications and after a successful beta read, I think it is a spectacular story. I can promise that you have never read anything like it before. Typically, I try to stay away from common fantasy themes and ULRIK is no exception. That could be said of many writers, but for me, it is one of the goals I have when I sit down to write.
Another goal of mine is I try to stay away from foul language in my writing. Have you ever noticed; one person’s swearing is another person’s normal conversation?
Recently, I was dinged by a reviewer has having swearing in my book because I had one word in the book (a word which in another context can describe a female dog). As a result, the entire book was classified as “containing bad language”…one-word mind you, one, just one in the whole book. I’m not going to lie, that hurts because it was intended as a negative toward the entire book and the story itself was not highlighted. I guess it is a case of that reviewer throwing the proverbial baby-out-with-the-bathwater but to each their own.
That review caused me to be more aware of my content and dialog and I hope resulted in a change for the better. Of course, I am always open to constructive criticism because it makes me better at my craft.
That is all for now! Stay tuned for exciting news on what I am working on and what is next for Wendy L. Anderson.

Until next time, enjoy the fantasy! Take care of yourself!
