Rayne Tour Series: 1 New Release, 2 Awards
My young adult suspense Rayne Tour series, co-written with daughter Amberly, has a new release--and two awards.
Last Breath, book #2 in the series, started shipping in early September and should now be on shelves at your local store. Last Breath takes up where Always Watching, book #1, left off. If you haven't read Always Watching, do pick that one up first.
(View the book trailer.)
In the last week I've been informed of two awards won by Always Watching. First, it took the Gold in the 2009 Moonbeam Children's Award, Young Adult Fiction Horror/Mystery category. The Moonbean Children's Award's mission is: "Celebrating youthful curiosity, discovery and learning through books and reading."
Second, Always Watching won an Honors Award from NAPPA--National Parenting Publications Awards. (The NAPPA win is recent enough that 2009 winners have not yet been put up on the Web site.)
Amberly and I continue to hear from mothers, grandmothers and daughters who are enjoying these books. I love seeing the various generations become engaged with the series.
Christianbook.com is selling Always Watching and Last Breath together for $11.99. That's a great deal at only $6.00 apiece. Sold separately, CBD has them for $7.99 each. Either purchase certainly beats Amazon's price of $9.99 each.
