I just returned from a two-week road trip/camping expedition with my family. I apologize for my absence, but it felt incredibly good to unplug for a little while.
That being said, I am back in full force now, and I have some really exciting things to tell you about!
First, an article I wrote was published to a site called YourTango, who added a plug for The Crystal Keys at the end of the article!
Then I got a message from John Lanier at Christian Voice Magazine asking for permission to print an article I had written in their August issue. In exchange, he is giving The Crystal Keys: Champion of Destiny a full-page ad! I have seen the advertisement that he worked up, and it is absolutely beautiful! I am so excited to get my copy next month!
Something rather notable about these two occurrences is that they are polar opposite on the entertainment spectrum. What does this say about Champion of Destiny? I believe it makes a very potent statement—that there is something for everyone in this fast-paced fantasy fiction novel!
As if this isn’t exciting enough, I received a third email stating that my entry had been chosen for a conglomerate book project called The Mom Quilt! This book is due out in August 2015. The proceeds for the book will go to help build a water well for a house which caters to oppressed and victimized, teen-aged mothers in Kenya at an organization called Mercy House! I can think of no greater privilege or better use for my words and cannot wait to share more about this exciting project with you!
As for my progress . . . There is now an official fan page for The Crystal Keys series. Stop on by and say hello, start a conversation, and meet some other fans! This is a fan-driven discussion, so I hope some of you will come on over and chat! As we speak The Crystal Keys: Sera Oth Berinon (Book Two) is undergoing initial copy edit by the editor. I am starting a word-for-word detailed edit tonight . . . if I ever get off the computer, that is!
Well, that’s all for now, friends! I hope you are all enjoying reading The Crystal Keys: Champion of Destiny (Book One). I cannot wait to hear your comments and reviews!
