Rowan of the Crisp

20130430-161352.jpgDylan Kirkpatrick holds his creation–a cereal based on our book Rowan of the Wood, part of his school project in 4th grade at Moss Haven.

Dylan chose Rowan of the Wood for his book report and loved the book. He told us that one of his friends asked to borrow it after he finished, read it straight through, and is now bugging him for the sequel Witch on the Water, which Dylan is currently enjoying. Now, four more of his friends are in line to read Rowan of the Wood! Here’s hoping they get tired of waiting and buy their own copy!

Part of the book report was an oral presentation, and the other part was to create a cereal based on the book. Dylan created Rowan of the Crisp. On the back of the box is a maze game so you can help Cullen navigate through the redwood forest to find the wand while you enjoy your delicious bowl of Rowan of the Crisp. The free toy surprise inside the cereal box is a magic wand! See it sticking out of the top? That one was hand-carved by co-author, Ethan Rose.

This entire story has inspired me to reach out to middle grade teachers and librarians. Author Christine Rose would like to send classrooms and libraries a free copy of Rowan of the Wood along with some lesson plans so they can incorporate it into their curriculum. So, if you are a teacher, librarian, or educator, please don’t hesitate to contact us for your free copy to share with your class. If you choose to buy a set for your classroom, you will get an educational bulk discount.

We love to hear that children of all ages enjoy Rowan of the Wood. Perhaps the series has a new life ahead just in time for the fifth and final book, Spirit of the Otherworld, to be released later this year.

Power of the Zephyr: Book Four!

We’re thrilled to announce the release of Power of the Zephyr, the fourth book in the award-winning Rowan of the Wood fantasy series.

Power of the Zephyr continues the Rowan of the Wood fantasy series with further adventure and magical mayhem. The Freak Squad, as Trudy takes to calling them, confront Fiana out into the desert of Northern Nevada where she has developed a cult of mesmerized zombies in an intricate plot to capture Rowan and his wand for herself, once and for all.

The gorgeous cover was illustrated by J. R. Fleming, the same artist who did O. M. Grey’s Caught in the Cogs: An Eclectic Collection cover. We’ll definitely be using her again in the future.

Publishing & Marketing Realities

Christine Rose, half of the Christine and Ethan Rose writing team that brought us the Rowan of the Wood fantasy series, has started offering her services as a social media and publishing consultant. After being on the road and in the publishing trenches for over three years, Christine has written a book called Publishing and Marketing Realities for the Emerging Author: A Guide to Help Authors Effectively Choose a Publishing Path and Marketing Strategies.

Christine Rose shares what she’s learned the hard way. From starting with an Indie Press, through self-publishing, to finding a NY Agent and playing with the big boys. No nonsense. No tiptoeing. She tells it like it is. Christine has traveled coast to coast promoting her work, along the way becoming a social networking maverick and an Amazon bestselling author. Her marketing efforts sold over five times more books in the crucial first year than the average books sells in its lifetime. Publishing & Marketing Realities is her guide around the pitfalls en route to success.

“Wonderful! I like what you have done, and fast! It is a much better website. Finally someone has done what all the experts (from Writing Conferences like SanFrancisco and DFW) have been preaching.” ~J. Fred Beckman, Emerging Author of Amour et Vengeance

“This was my first time to format and upload an e-book to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online sites. I didn’t have a clue how to do so. Christine gave me the confidence and instruction I needed to move forward.” ~ Anne Fifield, Emerging Author of Owner Turn-In
