03/09/2012 Fantastic Friday!

Hello everyone and welcome back! Yesterday was a bit rough for me, so I'm going to try and make up for it today! I'm glad you've all come to check out today's reviews, so I won't make you wait any longer!
First we look at "Champion of Justice and Freedom" by Wayne Greenough. It's about a seventh grader named Tate Twilliger and his pursuits to become the hero his grandfather always wanted to be.

I wanted to pick something a bit ore uplifting today, sometimes a good pick-me-up is necessary and this story did a wonderful job of helping with that. It starts with Tate explaining why he decided to become the Champion of Justice and Freedom; reminiscing about when he and his grandfather would watch old serial and radio shows. His grandfather mentions that if he were Tate's age, he'd figure out a way to be a superhero, so not wanting to disappoint him, Tate finds a way to do just that. By fighting bullies, and helping people in his school, Tate finds a way to become the superhero every middle and high school needs.

This week, Smashwords is having their yearly sale, so I wanted to make sure that I picked a story that had opted into it. "Champion of Justice and Freedom" is currently 25% off is you use coupon code REW25 which will end up making it $1.50. I fully believe it is worth every cent of that money, so I encourage you to check it out.

Next, to enjoy a little self indulgence, as part of the sale I have also included my first full-length novel "The Light Rises". Normally it sells for $2.99, but until tomorrow you can get it for $1 by using coupon code REW75!

The story is about a group of companions that were torn apart two years prior coming back together after signs of the Apocalypse start popping up all over London. It starts with necromancer detective Keagan Gillette returning home following his disappearance two years ago after not being able to keep his twin sister Maria as part of the living. While out one night he sees a man hold his hand up to one of the streetlamps and cause a blizzard in the middle of winter. He's then forced to rebuild the bridges he thought were burned long ago, only to learn that not everyone had come away unscathed after they prevented the Seal of Solomon from being used and stopped the demonologists known as the Disciples of Cain.

"The Light Rises" is about standing up for what's right, even if the odds are heavily stacked against you. Will they be able to stop the Apocalypse and save, not just London, but the world? Check it out in "The Light Rises", and get yourself ready for the prequel "Rending the Seal" coming soon to Smashwords!

Thanks everyone for stopping by. I know this post was a bit longer than normal, and I appreciate you sticking through it. Monday's post will be up a bit earlier, so that'll be interesting for certain. Also, for those who participate, this weekend of daylight savings time, so remember to move your clocks forward one hour! Wouldn't want anyone late to work in on Monday! Until then, have a great weekend!
