{Interview+Giveaway} Aizai the Forgotten by Mary-Jean Harris

{Interview+Giveaway} Aizai the Forgotten by Mary-Jean Harris

Today I have Mary- Jean here for an interview about her book, Aizai the Forgotten and then a giveaway of an ecopy of her book! 1. Describe Aizai the Forgotten in a tweet. Aizai the Forgotten follows seventeen-year-old Wolfdon as he tries to find the lost world of Aizai in France and Spain of the seventeenth century. With a beautiful horse he borrows from an astrologer, Wolfdon meets many peculiar people and eventually discovers the portal to Aizai with the aid of a mysterious girl he believes to be a goddess. Once in Aizai, Wolfdon witnesses magic beyond his imagination, but also realizes that there is a deadly secret, something that may involve him more than he could have guessed, and takes him even further on a dangerous mission. 2. What is one thing that we would be surprised to learn about Wolfdon Pellegrin? He has a strange mix of loyalty and disloyalty to his character. You find this out in the book, but he’ll be perfectly alright with ‘borrowing’ books and… Read more »

{Guest Post} The Secrets of the Vanmars by Elisabeth Wheatley

{Guest Post} The Secrets of the Vanmars by Elisabeth Wheatley

Today I have a guest post from a young teenage author! Please join me in welcoming Elisabeth to book briefs! She is only 16 and her second book, the Secrets of the Vanmars, is already published! Today she is going to talk about the internet and publishing.  It is an exciting age to be alive, isn’t it? Cell phones, computers, libraries, instant messaging, planes, and my absolute favorite, that magical network, the Internet. The Internet has changed the world. The way the world works and the way we connect and communicate. Why wouldn’t it effect our literature as well? When my first book was published, I was fifteen and had just learned about that thing called “Facebook.” Thanks to parents who encouraged my time be spent with the printed word rather than in Cyberspace and a shoddy local internet connection, I was suffering severe technological impairment. (It’s better now, but I’m learning yet.) Before my first book was picked up by Chengalera Press, we (myself and my business-minded father) started… Read more »
