Folks, I have a request. Do read on.
First let me begin why and where this request stems from…
Here are the most prominent of the reasons.
Creative endeavors have to be encouraged, don’t you agree?
And when children have matched effort with passion to create meaningful, impactful and engrossing stories across genres, it is all the more important that we acknowledge, recognize, support and encourage them, isn’t it?
The pandemic has generated a new reality for children and grownups alike, with lockdowns, safety, and social distancing norms and online schooling and work from home. A phase that has been and still is underlined by severe limitation of social interactions, creating a void. A social void that has opened up possibilities and opportunities for self-reflection, explorations, and discoveries. I believe the two books mentioned below are the results of such experiences by the young authors and deserve to be shared with the world. Something that I hope can serve as a source of inspiration as well.
The two books…
~ A novel penned by a fourteen-year-old ninth-grader during the lockdown. It is a thrilling adventure fantasy that follows a banished prince, princess, and their guardians through a time-distorted land guided by a mysterious boy on a quest filled with danger, intrigue, magic and humor.
‘Chronaethion’ is available worldwide.
Appropriate for 13 years and older.
In India ~
~ A collection of short stories penned by children under 16 years and published during the lockdown. Each story is layered and filled with startling depth and intensity that makes the book appealing to the discerning readers in the older age group too. Appropriate for 13 years and older.
‘Medley of Tales’ is available on Amazon, only in India as of now.
*Please note both the books are available for free on Amazon Kindle Unlimited
Now lets move on to what the request is…
Well your support and encouragement is what we seek. And this is how.
1. Buy, read the books! If you are on Kindle Unlimited, read the books for free.
2. Leave a review on Amazon, Goodreads and beyond.
3. Blog about it.
4. Share the book details or review in Reading Groups or Book Clubs.
5. Spread the word about the books on your Instagram, blog and other social media handles.
6. Can you help invite a book review by a publication? If not a review then just a mention in the publication’s literary section perhaps?
Any leads, guidance will be much appreciated. Please comment if you can help or email firstname.lastname@example.org
