The Awen: Book One of The Sacred Oak Series

Well, folks ... it's here. My first novel, The Awen:  Book One of the Sacred Oak Series is available. I'm thrilled to say that is is available for download on Kindle via Amazon on the above link.  It is also available in all formats known to man at Smashwords. This is a book aimed at older Elementary students and Middle School students, though I have been told that adults are really enjoying it!

***The Awen is an intriguing tale full of young heroes, epic battles, and colorful story-telling. It contains the perfect elements for popular youth fiction: three-dimensional characters, a suspenseful tale of mythical proportions, and a view of the redemptive possibilities in every human heart.***

FYI:  The book is being formatted for Nook, the Itunes store, etc. and will be available that way soon. 

This is how you can help me:

1) Purchase the book for $2.99 on Amazon
2) "like" it on Amazon
3) Share the news via friends and social networking
4) Write a review if you like the book

Here is a blurb about the book:

Winter Haven Manor sits on a coastal estate in Wales, with mystery and danger in its history. It is the home of Ian, the son of the manor’s groundskeeper and a disenchanted dreamer who is soon to discover a destiny beyond his wildest imagination. It is also the home of Reese, Ian’s troubled nemesis who is heir to the estate, and Libby, Reese’s feisty cousin who has returned from America after losing her father.

What the trio discovers is that they are the "three unlikely"--a team of empowered friends meant to save the world, as foretold by a thousand-year-old prophecy. Not only will they have to combine their skills in order to save the otherworld, known as Mag Mell,  but they will also have to overcome battles in their own lives as well. Their struggles with the creatures in the otherworld will teach them about who they have been, and more importantly, who they can become.
Thanks so much for coming on this journey with me! I still have The Real-Life Princess and Beetle Hunter available as well.

Congratulations! I've never read Chronicles of Narnia but I've heard amazing things about them. It's funny because my editor, Erin Healy, writes Christian fiction and she, author Michelle McKinney-Hammond, and author P.B. Wilson have all written Christian novels I have promised to read. But here's the sad part...I've never read a novel. Don't shoot me! My favorite past time is reading nonfiction, Christian growth books. But I can't seem to get through a novel. I don't know why! I was this way as a child. I would sit in front of the book shelf where the Encyclopedia Britannica collection was and just read random tidbits and facts. But my teacher would give me an assignment to read a novel and I'd read the Cliff Notes version. Isn't that horrible. I've got to start reading some point. I hear they're great! :)
