V.S. Carnes

Goodreads Author

in Atlanta, The United States



Member Since
March 2010


V.S. has been told that she has ink in her veins. The daughter—and granddaughter—of writers, from her first, floundering attempt at a novel at age 12, V.S. has been writing fiction. Every day, for the sheer joy of it. Although she has a full-time job, a family, a mortgage, there is always something to edit, to create, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
All aspects of her life, however, have one common thread: God.
She wouldn’t have that any other way, either.
Her first published work, SAND FOR DREAMS, is now available.

“I've crossed a world of sand and tears in search of you.”
V.S. Carnes, Sand for Dreams

“And what was to become of what he had taken from her? He had dashed her heart to the ground and danced on it with combat boots. Did he sit in that seditious palace day after day and not even bother to scrape it off of his soles with a passing thought of her?”
V.S. Carnes

“She was an extension of his dreams. A sprinkling of magic dust, of unfeasible wishes, on his stable existence. The one thing-the one bright, marvelous thing-he wanted more than the world, but didn't deserve. However much he was tortured for her sake, however much blood he had spilled to protect her, the bruises to his body and the thrashings to his sanity, it would never be enough to make a wretch like him worthy of such a miracle.”
V.S. Carnes, Sand for Dreams

“I learned...that inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic, energetic striving, but it comes into us slowly and quietly and all the time, though we must regularly and every day give it a little chance to start flowing, prime it with a little solitude and idleness.”
Brenda Ueland

Ellen Maze Howdy doody VS! How did we go so long without meeting? I read up on your book, and then I watched (and "liked") your youtube trailers.

Here is a link for my most-watched trailer...(also Christian Fiction)
Please go see!

I clicked you as a fav author on GR and I hope I get to read your book soon. It's on the shelf and sounds wonderful.

Hugs and blessings!

Jesse Hanson Thank you very much for including me on your friends list, V.S. Sand for Dreams looks very interesting. I really hope I can get around to reading it at some point.
If it's not too forward, I'd also like to ask you to consider my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man for your list--certainly fictional, but very much inspired by my personal experiences.
Namaste and best wishes to you, Truly, jesse

p.s. Thought also that you may be interested in our group: God Realization (Sincere Non-Religious Spirtual Literature)

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, V.S. It's greatly appreciated. If you love a good mystery, and you have either a Kindle, Nook or iBooks, I encourage you to try a sample of my first novel. It's called FORBIDDEN STEPS and it's getting raves and 5 stars across the board. Check out what folks are saying by clicking on the link below, then scroll downward.


Also, here's the link to my YouTube promo vid.


Enjoy and have a wonderful day, Ed
