No THIRST This Week: Happy Memorial Day!

Posted by on May 30th, 2016 in A weekly story blog, Jill Williamson's Blog | 0 comments

The kids are home today, so rather than ignore them by working non-stop, I’ve decided to take this day off from THIRST in order to steal away a little fun time with my family. I’m sorry to make you all wait an extra week to find out what will happen to Eli. The time will go by quickly, I assure you. Enjoy your holiday!

Until next week!

Cover Reveal and a Free Ebook

Posted by on May 12th, 2016 in Jill Williamson's Blog | 4 comments

My son, Luke, and I have been hard at work on the second book in the RoboTales chapter book series, Mardok and the Seven Exiles. In case you didn’t know, RoboTales is a chapter book series of fractured fairytales that I wrote with the help of my son Luke (click here to learn more). Tinker is a retelling of Cinderella, but our Cinderella is a boy named Tinker who works in his uncle’s fix it shop. It has been challenging to find time to squeeze in these books between my deadlines, but Luke and I almost have book two ready to release.

To celebrate, the ebook for Tinker (book one) is free this week on Kindle. So if you like science fiction stories for young readers or know someone who does, download the ebook and/or share this image to help Luke and me spread the word. And if you do read it, please write us a short Amazon book review. Reviews help authors so much!

 

 

And now, it’s time for the cover reveal for Mardok and the Seven Exiles!

Drumroll please… (Scroll down to find the cover.)

What do you think? Any guess what fractured fairytale this one is?

Meet Lisa T. Bergren

LTB_author_pic-225x300I’m honored to be hosting my friend, author Lisa T. Bergren. Lisa and I had the privilege of going on a book tour a few years back to promote our books with Zondervan/Blink. I have enjoyed her books for years, especially her Waterfall series, so you can imagine how excited I was to see she had written a new novel in that storyworld! The new book is called Three Wishes, and you’ll learn more about it soon.

Lisa T. Bergren is the author of over 40 books in many different genres, that have sold more than 3 million copies combined. She lives in Colorado with her family, but spends most of her time planning her next trip abroad. For more info, see LisaTBergren.com

 

Here’s what the book, Three Wishes, is about:

ThreeWishes1

 

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR. BECAUSE YOU JUST MIGHT GET IT.

Zara Ruiz is a normal California girl on the verge of graduating high school and thinking about her dawning future. But when dusk brings a shattering loss—and she discovers a priceless object in the shallows of a tide pool—she is thrust a hundred-and-eighty years into the past. There she meets handsome ranchero Javier de la Ventura—who has big dreams and bigger secrets—along with his enchanting family, in a land that is at once familiar, and yet utterly foreign.

Between cattle rustlers, pirates and a growing call for statehood, it is not a peaceful time to be a Mexican settler in young Alta California. But it is in that time and place that Zara must decide if she can find what she longs for most in the past, or if her heart’s THREE WISHES can only be resolved in the present.
