Free eBook!

Sonya Noble’s book, Monster: 1, is available for free Friday, Oct. 19 through Sunday, Oct 21 on Amazon.com. It’s a great book from a terrific new author!

Monster: 1

New place. New town. New life.

Cami misses her home. She misses her friends. Making new friends is no problem, but they’re guarding some dangerous secrets.

Then she starts showing signs of being like them. She’s kicked out of her home and they take her in. But some of her new housemates are either jealous or afraid of her, and she’s framed for something that she didn’t do.

She leaves and tries to make it out on her own. The streets are dangerous, but it’s better than dealing with backstabbers and people terrified of what she might become.

Her past keeps coming back to haunt her. Something her unstable mother called her still sticks with her and won’t stop screaming at her: Monster.

Is she really a monster?

Here’s a little about Sonya Noble, herself:

As you can probably tell, I’m a teenaged home schooled author. I’m the oldest of five, and my mom has homeschooled us all since I was, well, in preschool.

Yes, school is a walk in the park, if that walk is at night in Western Chicago.

So, I have loved making up stories since I was little. First, it started as playing one of the best games in the world: Pretend. What grown-ups see: A backyard, a few trees, some sticks and a swing-set. What we see?  We’re a group of ninjas with guns and light sabers, on a mission to kill the Evil Lord of Hades and free the land from His Evilness, but we must first go through the Perilous Lands that will test our abilities and hide from his Evil Minions in the Trees of Safety!

And then when I found out that I could actually write this stuff down on paper, they evolved into something even better.

Now, I’m not saying that every story I ever wrote was this amazing masterpiece that people would one day call ‘The Next Hunger Games’ or ‘Even Better than Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings!’ but they did get better.

So. Being a writer is also a walk in the park, except you actually have to walk through that Western Chicago park in the middle of the night. In your mind.

And being a homeschooled author…well, I need something to occupy all of my time, right?

Book Review: “An Evil Agenda” by: Charlotte Pound

An Evil Agenda by: Charlotte Pound

What a fantastic book! This is better than This Present Darkness, much better. Though this is a work of fiction, her characterization of both angels and demons is Biblical. She doesn’t give undue power to demons or lessen the power of God’s angels.

An Evil Agenda is about three families in different parts of the country, all targeted by Satan. Skylar is a young girl with an incredible voice. Author, Charlotte Pound, does a great job of taking the reader through her temptation and what eventually happens. Zachary and his entire family are targets of Satan. Again, the author does a great job of showing the slow descent into worldliness and the subtle walking away from the things of God. Lastly, Rachelle is the daughter of a pastor. She is incredibly beautiful and is tempted to walk away from all that she has been taught of what is right and wrong and go her own way.

I don’t want to ruin the book for you, so I won’t tell the ending. However, I will say it was a very satisfying, believable ending for all three threads of the story. The author geared it for young adults and I must say did a great job with that. My teen-age daughter took the book from me when I was right in the middle of it and wouldn’t give it back until she had finished it first!

I don’t think this book is only for the youth, however. I think adults will not only greatly enjoy this book, but also be encouraged as well as convicted by it. This one definitely gets five stars in my book! Get it! Read it! You won’t regret it!

Available on Charlotte’s website, Amazon.com, and Pentecostal Publishing House. Go to my bookstore page and get yourself a copy today!
