I'm very excited to announce that I've successfully published my newest book, ALEX AND THE SECRET ROOM, on Amazon's Kindle. Starting April 1, you may purchase and download it for only .99 cents--that's right, an introductory offer of less than one dollar! On May 1, the price will go up to $4.99. Here's a description of the book:
Alex is a redhead, impulsive, friendly 12-year old boy. He loves adventure, and somehow manages to find them in his small town of Rocky Cove. In the first Alex Book, Alex and the Pirate’s Cave, there were kidnappings, pirates (of course!), skeletons, treasure, and good lessonslearned.
This story, Alex and the Secret Room, starts out inthe 1800s with fugitive slaves and the Underground Railroad. Somehow there is a connection with Rocky Cove in modern times. Alex befriends a lonely boy who had recently moved to Rocky Cove. This newcomer, Alonzo, lives in a Victorian mansion with his dad, and confides in Alex about weird happenings in this big house—strange noises and apparitions. Alonzo’s dad has apparently hidden a dark secret from his son. You’ll find out how Alex gets involved in solving this mystery and what happens. As in all my stories, there are biblical and moral foundations brought out, without being “preachy.”
