My 13-year-old daughter just released her first book on Kindle:
- Banished (The Riddled Stone, Book One)
Crown Prince Tyler pronounced his judgment: “Christopher Fredrico is banished from the kingdom of North Raec. If he is found within our territory, his life will be forfeit.” All Chris wanted was to be a peaceful scholar who could spend a lot of time with his friends. Now, falsely accused of stealing a magical artifact, he is forced to leave the only home he knows. But as he and his friends travel towards the coast, they find a riddle that may save a kingdom — or cost them their lives.
Teresa (who goes by the internet nickname of Princess Kitten) has done the NaNoWriMo Youth Program as part of her language studies for the past three years and has written many stories on her blog, but this is the first time we’ve followed through and published one of her books.
Naturally I’m biased, but I think she did a pretty good job, as first books go. Her book is clearly the beginning of a series, so she sets up more plot threads than she resolves — but I did convince her not to wait for this year’s NaNoWriMo to start Book Two. (I want to find out what happens next!)
Anyway, if you or your children enjoy fantasy fiction and are interested in reading something written by a fellow homeschooler — and if you have a Kindle or Kindle Reading App — you might want to download the sample chapters of her book and check it out. She would love to get some reviews!
