Children's Novel Review+Giveaway - Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light by Jaimie Engle

Monday, August 12, 2013

I recently had the pleasure of meeting (through email, of course) the awesome, multi-talented, fellow mother and momtrepreneur turned author, Jaimie Engle.  Jaimie is about to launch her new children's novel, Clifton Chase and the Arrow of the Light, a story about the War of the Roses, King Richard III and his two famous nephews, whose bodies were never found.

Official Book Trailer 

“It's quite fortuitous timing,” says Elisa Hirsch, an editor at Wayman Publishing, “since the skull of King Richard III was discovered and verified in February of this year. Engle's writing is rich. Children will learn about history while discovering an exciting tale that not only includes ancient kings and princes, but has dragons, dwarfs and talking mermaids as well.”

From the Novel
"You must take it," Edward said, as he shoved the glowing shaft toward Clifton's chest. "If my uncle gets this arrow in his hands, the entire kingdom will be in danger. It will remain safe with you, in your world."
"But, I'm just an ordinary boy," Clifton said. "This isn't my problem."

Edward stepped closer, his face no longer resembling a boy of Clifton's age, but for the first time he looked like a king. "You are the one, Clifton. The arrow has chosen you."

Jaimie is graciously offering one lucky reader a signed paperback copy of her book and three other winners the eBook version of their choice.  Please use the Rafflecopter form below to enter.  Good Luck.  (Open to US only)  Giveaway Ends 8/31/13.
