THE SECRET OF THE GOLDEN HEART

Elliott and Sabrina, two of the characters in my book (pictured left) would like to invite you to their creator’s (that’d be me) first book signing at Century Center on Fri., April 29th (9am-6pm), and Sat., April 30th (9am-3pm), 120 S. St. Joseph St, South Bend.

The Secret of the Golden Heart is a fantasy adventure for 8-12-year-olds. My young main character gets himself in a bit of trouble when he is transported on a journey to another galaxy to find the secret of his mother’s golden heart. Soon he discovers a veiled light that discloses to him that he’s inherited his mother’s destiny and must now fulfill it. Along the way, he also learns a valuable lesson of the true meaning of faith.

I’ve had some great compliments from children about the book. There will also be other vendors there so if you’re in the area I’d love for you to stop by and visit.

I’ll be giving away bookmarks, coupons, and I’ll also be holding a drawing to win a free golf lesson by a pro at a local golf course for your 8-12-year-old children or grandchildren (the age group for my book). So, please mark the date and stop by to sign up for a free lesson. I’m working on a few other surprises, too. Hope to see you there!

Celebrating!

I’m so happy to finally make this announcement just in time for Christmas!

I’d like to invite you to my Book Launch Party that will be held in a few short days. I will be releasing of my new middle grade fantasy novel The Secret of the Golden Heart, the first book in my Golden Heart Series. I know it’s a busy this time of year for everyone, but there’s no better time to buy a last-minute gift for a child.

Are you ready for a great children’s story that will transport your children, grandchildren, and children everywhere to a place that’s out of this world? Where adventure and mystery surrounds a boy after discovering he’s been chosen to fulfill his mother’s destiny? Where he discovers he must find the key that unlocks the only object that can save him, his family, and the others? This story is a fun adventure that will transport young readers to a faraway galaxy! 🙂

Here’s a brief excerpt:

The Secret of the Golden Heart

Alon, the ancient oak—the forest’s primeval icon—loomed. Its dark, edgy streaks wound around its bare, twisted trunk, forming black-eyed knots that stared through the shadows with contempt. Its branches sprawled over the forest canopy like mummy fingers, but it was the huge black hole in its trunk that still stirred embers around his nerves, even after all these years.”

I will be giving away a few signed copies of my book. All you have to do is stop by the Book Launch Party on Tuesday, December 1, at your convenience, and sign up for the Contest. (you’ll find details in the Contest box). And while you’re there, please sign my guest book so I know you stopped by! I will be posting a link Tuesday a.m. that will transport you right to the Party site!

I pray that God will touch little hearts and minds in big ways and sprout the seeds of faith that will grow into mighty oaks. God is our refuge. God is our strength. He will not disappoint.

Thank you so much for your support and your encouragement as I begin this exciting chapter of my life. I hope to see you there!
