Dual New Apple Book Awards

I am honored that Apollo’s Raven has been chosen as the “Official Selection” in the Cross Genre category in the 2017 New Apple Annual Book Awards!  This award is in addition to the 2017 New Apple Summer E-Book Awards for which Apollo’s Raven was chosen as the “Official Section” in the Historical Fiction category.

New Apple Book Award


Celebrate Awards & Republication 

I am pleased to announce the e-book and softcover book of Apollo’s Raven have been republished. Revisions were based on feedback I received from reviewers regarding word choice and inconsistencies. Quotes within the book have been deleted at the beginning of each chapter.

As an author, I value readers’ reviews and constructive feedback, as this helps me to write quality books that each of you can enjoy. Feel free to contact me if you have any feedback or questions. A major twist in Empire’s Anvil is based on a question that a reader asked me: What happens to the soul of a person who is possessed by another soul?

More to come!

To celebrate the New Apple book awards, the republished e-book of Apollo’s Raven will be offered at Amazon for the Bargain price of 99 cents through February 23rd. Click on the following to purchase:

The softcover book of Apollo’s Raven on which the New Apple Award is based is also available at Amazon. Also check out the audio-book of Apollo’s Raven that is available at Audible and Apple Store. The narrator, Kristen James, did an amazing job narrating the book.

What is ThunderClap?

Social media is a powerful tool that helps you to engage with other people. It becomes even more powerful when several people post at the same time. That is where Thunderclap comes in. Instead of having your message now and then on Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr, the Thunderclap campaign focuses the effect. Thunderclap will publish the same post on your social media at the very same time as other supporters. This is an effective way to get the message out to as many people as possible. Aggregating the posts helps break through the “noise” of general news.

Kristin James, Narrator

I’m flying high with the quality of the narration by Kristin “KJ” James. She adeptly captures the voices of both the Celtic and Roman characters in Apollo’s Raven. It has been a real pleasure to collaborate with this talented narrator from the Nashville, TN area.

Kristin James, Narrator, Apollo’s Raven

Acting has always been KJ’s passion. Starting on the stage as early as preschool, she pursued her passion into college where she received a BA in Communication with a double emphasis in Theatre and Public Relations from Mississippi State University. After college she found herself more and more drawn to voice overs. Several classes, coaching sessions, seminars, research, and a closet-turned-studio later, she now records and produces Audio Books on a regular basis. She has also done several radio commercials for clients such as Advance Financial, TriStar Health, and GAC.

When she’s not recording in her booth, you’ll find her crocheting, playing video games, or running agility with her dogs. Learn more about KJ at her websiteFacebook and Twitter.
