It’s the time when a book slips out of the author’s hands and stands alone in the light. The author is nervous but excited for the big reveal. An anxious wait draws out the whole process as an author waits for the first review to be posted.
This month it was my time to experience the emotions associated with the release of my first children’s book. In the early stages of development I wanted the whole series to be a quick read for the more experienced readers, but an achievable read for children who were beginning to experiment with new genres and expanding their reading challenges. The first review posted strengthened my belief that I had accomplished my goal. You can read the review here.
Starchild: The Age of Akra is a unique story created from a few simple questions. What if the nations were divided not just by race but by a unique power? What if a group of children were brought together by a prophecy? What if the underworld craved the collective powers of the nations? This is how four children came together and became linked to the events that lie ahead. The struggle to bring peace to the world of powerful energies lies in their hands.
The Starchild blurb
When Mai is chosen to take a pilgrimage to the Valley of a Thousand Thoughts to train with the oldest and wisest master of their people, an ancient prophecy is set in motion. The events to come have been predicted but are not unchangeable. When the Starchild returns to the planet Sage, the foreknowledge of the prophecy begins to gain strength.
Four children come together and become linked to the events that lie ahead. In The Age of Akra, the first stage of their journey has them facing the deadly spiderflax, only then to be confronted by a creature of the underworld, an evil Dementra called Amual.
The struggle to bring peace to the world of powerful energies lies in the hands of these four children and a strange little lizard. And it will not come easy. This journey is only the beginning.
Starchild is available in paperback or ebook on Amazon, Barns & Noble, iTunes, Kindle and Kobo HERE!
