To celebrate the one year anniversary of Hope Quest book 1’s release, BOTH books in the series are FREE today on Amazon! Link to Hope Quest book 1: Blackbird and link to Hope Quest book 2: The Lightning.
This story developed in my head for twenty years before I finally sat down and wrote it (the entire trilogy in an eighteen-month period!). The main character, fourteen-year-old Hope Quest and her coming of age story to find the origins of her strange star-moving talents came to me in a series of dreams when I was fifteen and going through some very dark times in my life. She was very much like a life-line for me and in writing her story, my hope is that it will be the same for others, particularly teens, although it is meant for all ages. Just know that book 1 does contain some triggering material in it related to abuse and drug use.
If you read them and like them, please consider leaving me a review on Amazon! Those reviews are gold to indie authors like me!!
My second novel, Hope Quest book 2: The Lightning, and second installment in my Hope Quest series, is FREE today as an e-book via Amazon! Find it here! Cosmic and supernatural, it is a coming of age/fantasy/drama about 14-year-old Hope Quest, an unusual girl who speaks in a whisper but has some strange and powerful abilities to control the stars and birds. After learning of her origins in book 1: Blackbird and having to deal with unexpected trauma at StarFEST, her group of punk friends helps her navigate her growing abilities, just as a strange, new photography teacher arrives at school with a particularly strong interest in Hope.

It is a dark tale of 14 year old Hope Quest, an unusual girl with a face full of scars who speaks in a whisper, survived a lightning strike as a toddler and possesses some strange coping skills to deal with an abusive life with her alcoholic grandmother.

6 months ago today, I started my indie author journey with the release of my poetry and dance photography collection, Elegant Execution. One month after that, I released my novel, Hope Quest book 1: Blackbird. To celebrate, I am offering both books (e-book versions) FREE today and tomorrow (Friday and Saturday)!!! Links in the titles.
Hope Quest is the story of an unusual 14 year old girl (Hope) who speaks in a whisper and has some unique abilities in regards to the stars. In her search for her family, to uncover questions about her strange abilities, she stumbles across Blackbird, the enigmatic frontman for Meteoric Rise, at a music festival, and her search takes some very dark and twisted turns. Hope Quest does contain disturbing and triggering material and is not for the faint of heart!
I had the story in my head since I was 15 years old and it helped get me through some dark times in my life. My own 15 year old daughter is on the cover. It took me two years to write the full 550 page story, which I am breaking up into a trilogy. Hope Quest book 2: The Lightning will be released later this year.
Go download the books! They’re free, they’re cool and you just might like them! Remember to leave me a review on Amazon and / or Goodreads, too. As an indie author, those reviews are gold!!
