Helen Hieble's Debut Novella

I’m Back! And With a new Book!

Hello everyone! I know I’ve been away forever. But I have some good news! I have a new book available on amazon.com. This one is a picture book for young children. It’s called Kittens? Kittens! Rosie and Mimi and Me. Here’s the link if you would like to check it out:


If anyone does purchase a copy, leaving a review (preferable a good one!) would be very much appreciated. Thanks for reading. I’ll talk to you guys again next time. I’m hoping to update this more regularly. It’ll be mostly non-writing related stuff though. All I have to do is figure out what to post about. LOL. Anyway, later!

Hi everyone! Sorry it’s been so long.

Hi. I know it’s been awhile. There hasn’t been much to say until now. But I have some good news! I have self-published a journal called My Favorite Things: A Place to Record Your Favorites, From Anime to Video Games. It’s just as the title suggests, a place to keep track of 30 of your favorite anime, books, manga, movies, TV shows, songs, and video games. It’s available on http://www.bookemon.com and I hope you’ll take a look! Thanks for reading. Hopefully I’ll be able to post more often. Until next time.

Hi! Welcome to my blog.

Hi. I’m Helen Hieble. Thanks for checking out my blog! I self-published The Wizard of Hirodenal in June of 2013, but before I published it I had to write it. Some people think that writing is easy. It’s not. The Wizard of Hirodenal is a short novella, only 102 pages, but that didn’t make it any easier to write. There’s a lot of thinking, planning, rewriting and editing that goes into writing a story like this. Or any kind of writing. But I love writing and I had a lot of fun writing it. And it would have been a lot longer if I hadn’t had a deadline. I wrote the Wizard of Hirodenal as a part of my senior project for college and I needed to finish it in order to graduate. But I am happy with how it turned out in the end.
Before I end this first post, I want to tell you a little bit about where the title came from and why I decided to write this particular story. The title is a reference to my character Liam’s history, which I sadly didn’t get to put into this book. Though if you read it carefully you’ll find I hinted at it! Basically it’s “Hero” “Den” and “Al” – meaning “hero of all dens.” Hirodenal. Hopefully if I write a second book, I’ll go into Liam’s past more. As for why I decided to write this story, I think it’s very important that everyone’s story be heard. I want to inspire the people who read my book, whether they’re gay or straight, or they have a disability or not, to believe in themselves. To never give up and to accept themselves and each other as they are. Because everyone is special and perfect no matter what anyone else thinks or tells them. I know I can’t save the world but if my book can help even one person feel better about themselves, then it was worth every second of work I put into it. And I would happily do it again. Until next time.
