  1. Do you review self-published middle grade fantasy books? I wrote and self-published Traegonia the Sunbow Prophecy in June of 2009. We are preparing for the release of the second book in the series, Traegonia the Ember Rune. I will be offering the first book The Sunbow Prophecy in the Kindle Edition for free begining March 1st and would like to have it reviewed. I would be glad to send you a hard copy along with our media kit if you would like. Please let me know. This is the Kindle link to my book; http://www.amazon.com/Traegonia-The-Sunbow-Prophecy-ebook/dp/B003PJ7BD2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1298664138&sr=8-2

    Traegonia the Sunbow Prophecy

    Traegonia the Sunbow Prophecy is the first book in the Traegonia series, based on the sculptures created by Dino C. Crisanti. These strange, kind and wonderful creatures will draw you into their world, a world within our own.

    Dino, an average boy from the Midwest, has a fateful encounter with two young Traegons, in a local forest his family visits. Traegons are two-foot tall forest dwelling creatures who resemble a cross between a troll and a dragon. Looking beyond outward appearances, Dino chooses to get to know them and finds friendship in this most unlikely meeting. When the home of theTraegons, becomes threatened by an unscrupulous developer, Dino and his new friends Karia and Juna must work together to stop the peril that looms. An ancient Traegonian Prophecy is revealed and the three friends find that their friendship is the key that sets the prophecy in motion. Follow them as the adventure unfolds and the World of Traegonia is unveiled. Learn of this incredible world within our own and you decide… is it real?

    Traegonia the Ember Rune

    Traegonia the Ember Rune, the second book in the Traegonia series is based around small, strange mystical creatures of the forest. Though they may appear scary at first sight, they are actually kind and gentle creatures.

    When Dino, an only child from the Midwest, decides to smuggle his two young Traegon friends on board a plane to California, his family vacation turns into an adventure of a lifetime. Dino is introduced to Autumn and Jade Linder who show him around the mountain where they live. As they come to know more about each other they find that they have more in common than they ever could have imagined. New friendships are made, old ones revealed and a new community of Traegons is introduced. Join Dino, Karia and Juna on this second exciting adventure and decide for yourself…. do they exist?

    • Quick note, I cannot seem to figure out how to run it for free so it will have to be .99. But again I will be happy to send you a copy. Thank You

      • Hi K.S.,

        If you would like to gift it to me via Kindle, I can review it, but I have to admit it will be a while. I have commitments until the end of May right now at my other blogs.

        In the meantime, if you email me at cg20pm00(at)gmail(dot)com with the following information, I can feature your book here:

        * cover art (jepg)
        * book blurb
        * short excerpt (MS Word format .doc or .docx)
        * author’s bio written in 3rd person
        * author photo (jpeg)

        Thanks for thinking of me.

        All my best,


  2. Since you’re accepting review requests for 2012, I wonder if you would be interested in reviewing a children’s fantasy about identity.

    The House in Windward Leaves by Katherine L. Holmes is aimed for middle grade readers, 7 to 12-year-olds. Following are links to the book:

    Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/House-Windward-Leaves-Katherine-Holmes/dp/0615507174/ref=sr_1_1_title_0_main?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1312044995&sr=1-1
    Nook: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-house-in-windward-leaves-katherine-l-holmes/1104118515
    Smashwords: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/74942

    This is the description:

    Halloween night, the wayward Sadie leads her friends past cardboard cut-outs of the painter Mistral and a lady at the leaf-covered house on Windward Road. A wall mural transports them to a star where their costumes become real.

    As Fortuneteller, Sadie only has to look in her crystal ball to help the others with their transformations. Her friend Candy has become the Homecoming Queen. The neighbor boy has become George Washington and his brother is a musician in the star band.

    That begins the adventures of Sadie and the enchanted children who make up the bizarre star community. Then Mistral’s woman friend finds that her star-of-sapphire necklace is missing. The found thief confesses that he stole it for a treasure hunt that takes up the latter chapters of this madcap fantasy.

    I can provide a Kindle or epub (Nook) copy or a coupon at Smashwords.
