Cover Reveal and a Free Ebook

Posted by on May 12th, 2016 in Jill Williamson's Blog | 2 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.

King’s Folly has arrived! Isn’t it beautiful?

King'sFolly3D copy

 

Their Battle for the Throne Has Just Begun.
But Will It Matter if the World They Rule Collapses Into the Sea?

The gods are angry.

Volcanic eruptions, sinkholes, ground shakers–everything points to their unhappiness. At least that is what the king of Armania believes. His son Prince Wilek thinks his father’s superstitions are nonsense, though he remains the ever dutiful First Arm of Armania.

When a messenger arrives and claims that the town of Farway has been swallowed by the earth, the king sends Wilek to investigate. But what Wilek discovers is more cataclysmic than one lost city. Even as the ground shifts beneath his feet, Wilek sets out on a desperate journey to save his people and his world. But can he do it before the entire land crumbles?

This volume includes the first three parts of The Kinsman Chronicles originally released as ebooks.
Part 1–Darkness Reigns
Part 2–The Heir War
Part 3–The End of All Things

 

Here are some blurbs from magazine book reviews:

“This series starter is an intense drama of biblical proportions…Wilek, Mielle, and Trevn in particular are intriguing, and the ending leaves readers wondering what adventures await this group of young people searching for truth.”

RT Book Reviews

“Williamson crafts a complex and vividly portrayed epic fantasy reminiscent of George R.R. Martin’s ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series but less edgy and with a Christian worldview. Loosely following the events in the Old Testament, the author depicts a society in which paganism and superstition are deeply ingrained prior to the coming of the Savior.”

–Library Journal

“This first book in the Kinsman Chronicles contains all the archetypal elements fantasy readers long for: a dangerous quest, the search for restoration, and a hero’s trial and tribulations through vast darkness and adventure. Fans will be swept away by Williamson’s fantasy world…King’s Folly is an expertly crafted epic tale in the Tolkien tradition that will leave customers impatiently waiting the next installment.”
