Priceless

A few of my third graders are reading VERVE STONES. They’re asking questions, updating me on what they’re reading, and the ones that finished want to know when THE LEGEND OF SPOON – BOOK 2 is available. My students’ love for Altrea, verses stones, and the characters are without a doubt my favorite part of being an author. I might not sell many books, but these interactions are priceless.

Here’s to putting in some hours on BACK OF BEYOND over the holiday weekend!

VERVE STONES

Excited to see someone read VERVE STONES on Kindle Unlimited! I’m working to finish BACK OF BEYOND (THE LEGEND OF SPOON – BOOK 2). My family recently moved to Olympia and are staying with friends while we search for a house in the same neighborhood. I haven’t found much time to write with the move, starting my 13th year of teaching, and my daughter in kindergarten. The new reader and unbelievable cover for VERVE STONES mostly done from Jake at J Caleb Design are a huge motivations for me to get my nose to the grindstone.

VERVE STONE Flashback

Fun to remember this comment left on my blog almost two years ago!!! This comment alone has allowed me to stay motivated on finishing THE LEGEND OF SPOON, BOOK 2: BACK OF BEYOND! From Brady on May 30, 2015.

I love this book so much and couldn’t stop reading. My parents had to hide my kindle in order to make me stop reading. Whens the second book coming?
I’m currently finished with my BACK OF BEYOND first draft and am having my friend Robin nearing the end of reading it through. I still need to have two or three more friends edit it, but getting the draft done was a big step forward.

VERVE STONES is a year old today on Amazon!!! It might not be the next Lord of the Rings, but getting 56 ratings on goodreads, 25 customer reviews on Amazon, and having the Kindle Edition of VERVE STONES reach as high as #2,280 on the Amazon Best Sellers Rank blew away my own expectations! Thanks to all my friends, family, and readers to allow this dream of mine to be possible! Praying the next book in the series (BACK OF BEYOND) is even more successful!
