“Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble” Is Perfect for Your Pre-Teens

Yes, if your kids love the Percy Jackson adventure The Lightning Thief, they’re sure to love the adventure Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble.

Noah is a space ship pilot, a voyager to distant worlds, a time traveler, and at twelve years old, quite possibly the last, best hope for Earth.

There’s a reason this book by D. Robert Pease has won multiple awards:


Critics love it:

“Pease’s strength as a storyteller lies in his ability to connect multiple time periods imaginatively, as well as Noah’s excited, fast-paced narration.” – Publishers Weekly

“The storyline is of course inspired by that of the famed biblical flood, but the inspiration stops there. This is not a religious novel, and the references are relegated to the name of the protagonists (and his father), and their mission of collecting examples of every living creature on earth, two at a time. Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble is a great start to what I can see becoming a landmark young science fiction series. I was entertained during my adventures through time, brought home to a satisfyingly realistic conclusion, and even learned a thing or two about the craft of writing along the way. I am rating Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble 24/25. It is absolutely worth a read, and if you happen to have a young reader on your Christmas list that is interested in Science Fiction, I highly recommend that you introduce them to the Zarc family.” – Christopher Godsoe

Your kids will love it, too.

Noah lives for piloting spaceships through time, dodging killer robots and saving Earth’s animals from extinction. Life couldn’t be better. But the twelve-year-old time traveler learns it could be a whole lot worse. His mom is kidnapped and taken to Mars; his dad is stranded in the Ice Age; and Noah is attacked at every turn by a foe bent on destroying Earth… for the second time.

“Hannah’s Voice” is Compelling, Provocative, and On Sale!

LaneDiamond102_760xThis post brought to you by Lane Diamond, Managing Publisher/Editor.

Hannah’s Voice by Robb Grindstaff has people talking.

It’s no wonder Mr. Grindstaff’s book has garnered an average rating at Amazon of 4.9 Stars (30 5-star, 4 4-star, and nothing lower). Simply put, Hannah’s Voice is one of those stories, featuring an extraordinary character in Hannah Cross, that will likely remain with you long after you’ve finished it. Indeed, like me, you may be itching to read it again not long after completing it the first time.

When Robb first submitted his manuscript to us, I was buried under so much work that I was a bit burned out, and the submissions were a big part of what were wearing me down. I’d recently rejected about 49 out of 50 submissions, and I was becoming disheartened. I waded into Hannah’s Voice frustrated and jaded, thinking, ‘Let’s see how long it takes me to reject this one.’ Imagine my delight as I read page after page without even realizing that I was already 25 pages in before thinking, ‘Holy cats, this is fantastic!’

And I’d barely scratched the surface, for Hannah’s Voice did what every great book does: it started out strong, and got better with each page… right up to the end. When I finished it, my first thought when seeking to describe it was, ‘You know what? This reminds me quite a bit of A Prayer for Owen Meany.’ That great book by John Irving has long been one of my favorites, and Hannah’s Voice stands right alongside it. The stories share certain thematic qualities, and they both feature characters that are uniquely intriguing (and of course, solid writing).

Having not yet lost my mind, I moved quickly to bring Robb onto the Evolved Publishing team, and to get Hannah’s Voice into our catalog. And I’m so happy to share with readers this great book, about which I am (obviously) unabashedly enthusiastic. I simply can’t recommend it strongly enough. You will love it; of that, I have no doubt.

Hannah’s Voice is on sale for 5 days only!

You can pick up your eBook copy of this amazing story for just $0.99 (SAVE $3.00), but only through Friday, August 30th. If ever you were going to try a new author, this is the time.
