Julia Hughes - writing thrilling adventures - time after time after time.
"Sher a Hart" is taking part in a "Back to the Future" blog hop; and Paul Hewlett, author of the "Lionel Snodgrass" adventure books for younger readers kindly invited me to take part.
But no surprise there really! Paul's a tireless supporter of indie authors and artists, and I first met him here on the wild wild web when Paul contacted me to ask if he could feature Laura Wright LaRoche's cover art of "A Raucous Time". Of course, the answer was YES! – and never one to miss an opportunity, I also asked if Paul would like a copy of "A Raucous Time" for review purposes. Paul graciously accepted, but warned that he wouldn't be able to review the story for some time, due to pressure of work, something all indie authors understand. If I remember correctly, that was some months ago, and hearing nothing from Paul, I assumed that either he was completely snowed under, or perhaps the story wasn't his "cup of tea".
It came as a very pleasant surprise then when Paul gave a shout out a couple of weeks ago to say that he really enjoyed the read, although some of the British phrases used gave him pause for thought, and invited "A Raucous Time" to take part in "Back to the Future" blog hop.
"A Raucous Time" is the first in the Celtic Cousins' Adventures, in which the boys go after the lost treasure of King John, which was last seen back in 1216. I still find it incredible that not so much as a gold coin of this fabulous treasure hoard has been discovered, and in my mind, the reason it hasn't been found is because it was never lost, merely hidden.
If anyone reading this has a metal detector or a spade and a yearning to go treasure hunting, give me a shout! Alternatively, you could enter "Sher a Hart's" great free contest, and be in with a chance of winning a copy of "A Raucous Time" and go treasure hunting with the Celtic Cousins!
Two autographed paperback copies, and two ebook copies of "A Raucous Time" are up for grabs, there's five days left to run, so be sure to get your entry in now (it's free!): "Sher a Hart"
