I am doing a happy dance today and will be for the coming weeks. I have smile on my face that is growing by the minute. This comes after the very busy and chaotic week I had back at school. Our students returned on Tuesday and in my new role as Year 7 Coordinator (never done it before and learning a lot!), it was frenetic. I loved it, though exhausted by Friday, and we’ve only just started the school year. However, I digress… I have some great news I want to share with you, my amazing followers.
Mary Anne Yarde, an Award-winning author of The Du Lac Chronicles, had kindly consented to reading The Labyrinthine Journey. I am very pleased and grateful she has awarded the book The Coffee Pot Book Club Book Award. You can read her review HERE .
An excerpt of the review:
“The Labyrinthine Journey is the 2nd book in the Servant of the Gods series — I have not had the pleasure of reading book 1, but this did not impede my enjoyment of this story at all. The Labyrinthine Journey stands very firmly on its own feet.
What else can I say about this remarkable book but, be prepared to expect the unexpected! The storyline was refreshingly original, and there are certainly enough plot twists to keep the reader engaged. This is one adventure you don’t want to miss. Great for fans who have grown up with Rick Riordan’s fabulous Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series!
I Highly Recommend.”
Now onto the next piece of good news, The Labyrinthine Journey is on the finalists list for The Wishing Shelf Book Awards, a UK based book award competition and recommended by ALLi – The Alliance of Independent Authors. All books read are by enthusiastic readers from the UK and Europe, a nice spread of people with diverse interests and from differing cultures.
I am very grateful for these nominations.
Thank you for your continued support and as always, I look forward to your comments and will respond.
