INDIE-pendence Day Blog Hop and Giveaway

on July 1, 2013


Happy Independence Day! I’m participating in the INDIE-pendence Day Blog Hop.

This INDIEpendence day, the Indelibles would like to celebrate indie authors (self-published and small-press) by holding up examples of outstanding indie works. We believe that amazing works of fiction can be found in indie novels. By highlighting and bringing greater awareness to quality indie books, people will find great books to read, indie authors get support, and we continue to change hearts and minds about the gems that can be found among self-published and small-press novels.

The novel I would like to celebrate is THE LAST TIMEKEEPERS AND THE ARCH OF ATLANTIS by Sharon Ledwith, published by Musa Publishing (Euterpe YA Imprint).



When 13-year-old Amanda Sault and her annoying classmates are caught in a food fight at school, they’re given a choice: suspension or yard duty. The decision is a no-brainer. Their two-week crash course in landscaping leads to the discovery of a weathered stone arch in the overgrown back yard. The arch isn’t a forgotten lawn ornament but an ancient time portal from the lost continent of Atlantis.

Chosen by an Atlantean Magus to be Timekeepers–legendary time travelers sworn to keep history safe from the evil Belial–Amanda and her classmates are sent on an adventure of a lifetime. Can they find the young Robin Hood and his merry band of teens? If they don’t, then history itself may be turned upside down.

THE LAST TIMEKEEPERS AND THE ARCH OF ATLANTIS is available in all ebook formats. You can find out more about THE LAST TIMEKEEPERS AND THE ARCH OF ATLANTIS at Musa Publishing here.

GIVEAWAY: Now, to add to your to-read pile, I am giving away one $10 Gift Certificate to Musa Publishing. Musa Publishing is home to debut YA novelists and NYT/USA Today bestselling authors,  award-winning books and literary chapbooks, the latest in speculative fiction to the lost treasures of an American science fiction pioneer—and all at reasonable, affordable prices.
