 New Release From Audrey Greathouse

Neverland Wars

Coming on May 9th, 2016, The Neverland Wars from Audrey Greathouse!

I'm excited about this book because not only is it a great story, it's from my "locker buddy" at Clean Teen Publishing.

What's a locker buddy, you ask?

Audrey and I signed on to CTP at the same time. We were both newbies in the world of publishing and had no idea what was going on. So Audrey declared that we would be locker buddies like they give you in middle school. That way we'd have at least one person we knew to draw comfort from. I'm so happy to see her book hitting shelves soon. She's been an awesome locker buddy!

About The Neverland Wars:

Magic can do a lot―give you flight, show you mermaids, help you taste the stars, and… solve the budget crisis? That's what the grown-ups will do with it if they ever make it to Neverland to steal its magic and bring their children home.

However, Gwen doesn't know this. She's just a sixteen-year-old girl with a place on the debate team and a powerful crush on Jay, the soon-to-be homecoming king. She doesn't know her little sister could actually run away with Peter Pan, or that she might have to chase after her to bring her home safe. Gwen will find out though―and when she does, she'll discover she's in the middle of a looming war between Neverland and reality.

She'll be out of place as a teenager in Neverland, but she won't be the only one. Peter Pan's constant treks back to the mainland have slowly aged him into adolescence as well. Soon, Gwen will have to decide whether she's going to join impish, playful Peter in his fight for eternal youth… or if she's going to scramble back to reality in time for the homecoming dance.

Author Q&A

I'm going to try to include an author Q&A in most of my newsletters. If you want to ask me a question, you can feel free to contact me through my website. Sometimes I may ask another author to answer a question, just to get a different perspective. This month's question is:

What are you currently working on?

Too much! I tend to be one of those people who acts like a squirrel with an abundance of nuts to chase. I jump from thing to thing and every new shiny idea captures my attention. So, currently, I'm working on the following (in order of priority):

• The sequel to Broken Fate, tentatively titled Avenging Fate.

• A novella that loosely ties Broken Fate and Avenging Fate together, told from Alex's perspective. You don't have to read the novella for either book to make sense. It's just sort of an extra perspective on what's going on between the two books.

• Another YA book that has no title yet, but centers around the myths and legends of Stonehenge.

• An adult fantasy novel with a senior citizen as the hero.


Newsletter Exclusive Giveaway

All subscribers to my newsletters are automatically entered into a giveaway for a $5.00 USD Amazon.com gift card. You don't have to do anything! 

How it works: All subscribers will be assigned a number and then I'll use Random.org to choose a winning number. The drawing will be held on April 4, 2016 and I'll notify the winner as soon as possible. If, for whatever reason, the winner doesn't want their prize or I cannot contact them through a valid address, I will draw again.

(You must have a valid email address to receive the prize and note that while international winners are welcome, the card will be in US dollars.) 

The winner will be posted in the next newsletter. Good luck!
