I have some great news!
The Crystal Keys: Champion of Destiny is officially prepared, packaged, and ready to ship for our entry into the Next Generation Indie Book Awards 2016 contest!
The book has been entered in three categories:
General Fiction/Novel (over 80,000 words)
First Novel (over 80,000 words)
Finalists to be announced by May 15, 2016.
Grand prize winners to be announced by May 31, 2016.
The grand prize in the fiction category is $1500 and $100 for the subcategories. But that is not why I have entered! The winner also has their book published in a book catalog with is distributed to thousands of retailers and media outlets along with an invitation to the award ceremony in Chicago!
As if that is not enough, the top 70 books of 2016 will be reviewed by a top literary agent who will then review them for “possible representation in areas such as distribution, foreign rights, film rights, and other rights.”
I am very excited to be entered into this prestigious contest and cannot wait to see how The Crystal Keys: Champion of Destiny fares against the competition!
Wish us luck!

I am an old soul; and thus will I forever remain.
I take my fiction between covers with a nice steaming cup of hot cocoa on the side.
For me, the weight of a good book in my hand is like time spent with an old friend. There is simply something nostalgic about it that is comforting to the soul.
I love the faint scent of vanilla that emanates from the paper and the familiar rustle of the pages as they carry me deeper and deeper into another world. There is a richness deeply rooted in bindings and covers of an old book; something that can never be replicated by the less personable electronic versions now available.
I spent the better part of my childhood in the library, emerged in the endless adventures that surrounded me there. It is as much a part of me as my beating heart.
Yet, long gone are the days when you had to make a trip to the library or a bookstore to obtain that much awaited new release. Gone are the days of quills scratching out grand adventures upon papyrus.
In today’s world every book of your imagining is only a click away. And there is a great deal to be said for the ease and availability of any and every imaginable piece of literature right at your fingertips. No waiting. No hassle. No overdue fees. It can be, and is, a beautiful thing.
Perhaps you are an old soul like me and prefer the feel of paper in your hands; or perhaps you love the ease of portability of electronic media. Maybe Apple is your device of choice; or perhaps you prefer Nook or Kindle.
No matter what your vice, I have great news for you! We have something for everyone!
The Crystal Keys: Champion of Destiny will be available on five different e-book platforms including Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble Nook, Kobo, Google Books, and Apople iPad!
And of course…my favorite… good old fashioned ink and paper.
