About the free book...
Just for fun, everyone who joins my hearth-side email circle these days will receive a free ebook in MOBI or EPUB format. These ebooks are usually sold by Amazon and other online stores for $5.99 or $7.99 but one of them is a free gift for you as a new subscriber.
There are two books you can choose from:
The Soul and the Seed (Book 1 of The Kyrennei Series)
What if your very existence threatened the heart of power?
Aranka is a moderately normal young woman in a small Oregon town until she upsets those who hold true power in today's world.
The accepted image of the modern world is an illusion. A massive force controls the wills of the powerful, whether in high school cliques or in international politics. Those who won't conform must be crushed to preserve the appearance of free will.
Aranka and a few others stand in the way, not because they are rebels, just because of the fluke in their genes. Those with power will stop at nothing to protect their supremacy. Aranka is kidnapped and forced to watch as her fellow prisoners are killed one by one. It's only a matter of time before it is her turn to die.
A small band of outlaws from every corner of the globe fight to free those in peril and to preserve their own inner freedom. Kenyen, a young doctor, ventures into the heart of oppression but he can't stop the terror. He just wants to save one life. In the process he uncovers "the Seed," the first flicker of hope in a thousand years.
This is the first book in The Kyrennei Series - the tale of how the contemporary world is the dystopia that so many fear.
Shanna and the Raven: An Imbolc Story
An earth-centered adventure story for kids ages 6 to 12 and adventurous adults
Intuition is calling.
How do you know when the signs of nature and the whispers of your heart are true?
Here is a story for Pagan, Wiccan and earth-centered families to share the wonder of the Wheel of the Year. Imbolc is a time for hearth fires and candlelight, the season for protection, healing, intuition and the first seeds of hope. Join us for a story of courage.
A strange man talks to seven-year-old Rye one day at the bus stop. His sister, ten-year-old Shanna, doesn't feel good about it, but she has no real idea why. Nightmares and even a beady-eyed raven dog Shanna´s footsteps and their mother is suddenly out of work. As the celebration of Imbolc nears, Shanna wishes for some magic that will help dispel the troubles.
If your kids like The American Girl series or The Magic Tree House series and you want to share adventure stories with them that feature earth-centered and Pagan holidays and ideas, this series is just the ticket.
Welcome to our hearth and the Children's Wheel of the Year. Shanna and the Raven is the first book in the Children's Wheel of the Year series.
