YAmazing Race!

The YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes is now over!  Stay tuned for announcements about the winners over at The Apocalypsies Blog!  Thanks so much for playing!


(I would hand you a bottle of water to keep you energized, but this is the internet, so here’s a pint of virtual cookie-dough ice-cream instead.)

Okay.  Pit stop over.  On to STORYBOUND.  Have a good look at the gorgeous cover and read through the summary:

In the land of Story, children go to school to learn to be characters: a perfect Hero, a trusty Sidekick, even the most dastardly Villain. They take classes on Outdoor Experiential Questing and Backstory, while adults search for full-time character work in stories written just for them.

In our world, twelve-year-old Una Fairchild has always felt invisible. But all that changes when she stumbles upon a mysterious book buried deep in the basement of her school library, opens the cover, and suddenly finds herself transported to the magical land of Story.

But Story is not a perfect fairy tale. Una’s new friend Peter warns her about the grave danger she could face if anyone discovers her true identity. The devious Tale Keeper watches her every move. And there are whispers of a deadly secret that seems to revolve around Una herself….

With the timeless appeal of books like A Wrinkle in Time and the breathtaking action of InkheartStorybound has all the makings of a new classic. Brimming with fantastical creatures, magical adventure, and heart-stopping twists, Storybound will leave readers wishing they too could jump through the pages into this enchanting fairy-tale world.
