My Middle Grade Children’s fantasy The Lucky Diamond is now officially available, in paperback, ebook and on Kindle Unlimited.
It’s taken several rewrites, a wonderful beta reader, what felt like endless editing, and I am so grateful to family, friends, my editor, cover designer, my writer group friends, and my virtual friends in the Writing Community for all the support!
You can get it at a special launch price for three days only in Amazon – here’s a link: https://bit.ly/2ZNsmpZ
You can also buy it on line in Barnes & Noble, and request it through any bookstore or library.
It’s a strange but wonderful feeling to see the book I started when I was six now in print. Here’s a bit about the book:
“The whirlclouds erupted on all sides, buffeting the boat first one way and then the next, sending Alan sprawling from one side of the deck to the other. He couldn’t stay on his feet long enough to reach the tiller. Yvonne and Susan clung to the mast. He couldn’t see Vicky or Cathy as waves washed over the side, drenching him.”
When 10 year old Cathy meets Lucky, a magical talking diamond, she and her orphaned siblings readily agree to help Lucky get home to the Rock of Diamonds, situated far from their home in the rundown town of Lowdar, in the furthest reaches of the country on the other side of the monster infested Great Forest.
What the five children don’t know is that Lucky’s enemy, the evil Queen Rose of Cassis, is hunting the Diamond princess and will do anything to stop her, and those helping her, from reaching the Rock of Diamonds.
With Lucky’s magic waning rapidly and Queen Rose determined to destroy her and the children, can five young orphans possibly succeed in their quest?
“Nivram, a place of unimaginable beauty and danger + five orphaned siblings trying to save a friend = the adventure of a lifetime that hurtles along at tremendous speed and is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats.” Lindsay J Sedgwick, author of the Wulfie series
“The Lucky Diamond is a gem, fast-paced and convincing, with an unusual quest and characters you’ll want to know. A great read.” Livi Michael, author of The Whispering Road, winner of Nestle Children’s Book Bronze Award
“Middle grade fantasy fans, give this one a read. It’s FUN and well written.
In general if you like middle grade stories with compelling characters, quests, and magic you’ll adore this one. Give it a try!” Goodreads reviewer
“I loved this magical tale. The world building is engaging, the world is full of fun, and sometimes scary, creatures, and the children need to use all of their skills (and the magical gifts left to them by their mother) to navigate the perilous journey” Goodreads reviewer
