Press Release 3rd Annual PenCraft Awards Ceremony To Be Headlined by Linnea Tanner for Outstanding Literary Achievement; Book Signing at Old Firehouse Books

The PenCraft Awards for 2019 will recognize 48 remarkable works in numerous categories at its 3rd Annual Event, which will be held at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino in Lake Charles, LA. Three of the outstanding Winners will share the spotlight that night as the best of the best. The following is an excerpt from the PenCraft Award News Release

The Best Book of the Year award was won by Linnea Tanner with her book, Apollo’s Raven (Curse of Clansmen and Kings) (Volume 1), published by Apollo Raven Publisher, LLC. The book is a captivating tale about triangles; love, lust, and espionage; friend, foe, and spies; civilized Rome, barbarians and spiritual-supernatural beings. The author’s knowledge of the mythology and the history of 24 AD Celtic tribes is astounding as she weaves a tapestry of intrigue, a Gordian knot of rivalry, and a love story.

Since childhood, Tanner has passionately read about ancient civilizations and mythology, which held women in higher esteem. Of particular interest to her were the enigmatic Celts who were known as fierce warriors and mystical Druids. Depending on the time of day and season of the year, you will find her exploring and researching ancient and medieval history, mythology and archaeology to support her writing. As the author of the Curse of Clansmen and Kings series, she has extensively researched and traveled to sites described within each book.

Linnea Tanner has received multiple awards for her literary endeavors in 2019. She’s been a recipient of the Colorado Independent Publishers Association 2019 CIPA’s EVVY Bronze Medal, the 2019 Readers’ Favorite GOLD MEDAL for Fiction: Magic/Wizardry genre, and also a Gold Medal in the 2019 Global EBook Awards for the category of fantasy/Historical.

Linnea is a native of Colorado, currently residing in Windsor, Colorado. She holds a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in chemistry from the University of Colorado. She lives with her husband and is the mother of two children.

Linnea Tanner will be at the PenCraft Awards’ ceremony, January 20, 2020, to meet and greet fans and her contemporaries. She will be there to talk about her fascinating Curse of Clansmen and Kings series.

In 24 AD British kings hand-picked by Rome to rule are fighting each other for power. King Amren’s former queen, a powerful Druid, has cast a curse that Blood Wolf and the Raven will rise and destroy him. The king’s daughter, Catrin, learns to her dismay that she is the Raven and her banished half-brother is Blood Wolf.

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.
