Blurb

When a common normal person, anyone of us, suddenly finds himself or herself in a life-and-death situation in the middle of the forest, would he or she know how to survive? 
 
This is the simple dilemma that is offered to the protagonist of our story, who, returning from a relaxing holiday in Namibia on a typical photographic safari, is involved in an unexpected extreme survival situation in the Ituri forest, in the Republic of Congo in Africa when the plane he was in gets shot down by rebels. 
 
A place where Nature is not the only enemy and where survival is not the only problem. A classic scented adventure which makes this book the perfect place to escape reality and feel within you, the anguish and despair of the hero while facing the challenges he is presented with. This book smoothly blends emotion and tension when faced with the challenge to survive, but also the psychological degradation of the protagonist throughout the story and an in-depth study on the environment, the animals, the plants as well as the people, that the author carried out. It also teaches us that our perception of where our limits lie are usually wrong, sometimes for better and sometimes for worse.

Sinopsis


Cuando una persona normal y corriente, cualquiera de nosotros, se encuentra de repente en una situación de vida o muerte en medio de la selva, ¿sabría sobrevivir?

Este es el simple dilema que se le ofrece al protagonista de nuestra historia, que, volviendo de unas tranquilas vacaciones en Namibia, un típico safari fotográfico, se ve envuelto en una inesperada situación de supervivencia extrema en la selva de Ituri, en la República del Congo en África, cuando el avión en el que viaja es derribado por rebeldes. Un lugar donde la Naturaleza no es el único enemigo y donde sobrevivir no es el único problema. Una aventura con aroma a las clásicas de siempre que hacen de este libro el plato perfecto para evadirse de la realidad y sentir uno mismo la angustia y la desesperación del protagonista ante el reto que se le presenta. En este libro se mezcla de forma natural la emoción y la tensión del propio reto de sobrevivir, la degradación psicológica del protagonista a lo largo de la historia y el profundo estudio del medio, sus animales, plantas y personas que ha realizado el autor.

También nos enseña que nuestra percepción de dónde están nuestros límites suele ser errónea, a veces para bien y otras para mal.

Día del libro / Book Day




Su Historia
 
El día 23 de abril fue elegido como "Día Internacional del Libro", pues supuestamente coincide con el fallecimiento de Miguel de Cervantes, William Shakespeare y el Inca Garcilaso de la Vega en la misma fecha en el año 1616. Realmente Cervantes falleció el 22 y fue enterrado el 23, mientras que Shakespeare murió el 23 de abril del calendario juliano, que corresponde al 3 de mayo del calendario gregoriano

En esta fecha también fallecieron William Wordsworth (en 1850) y Josep Pla (en 1981).

La Unión Internacional de Editores propuso esta fecha a la UNESCO, con el objetivo de fomentar la cultura y la protección de la propiedad intelectual por medio del derecho de autor. La Conferencia General de la UNESCO la aprobó en París el 15 de noviembre de 1995, por lo que a partir de dicha fecha el 23 de abril es el "Día Internacional del Libro y del Derecho de Autor".

En otros paises 
 
Algunos países realizan actos semejantes en otras fechas. En Reino Unido e Irlanda, el primer martes de marzo realizan el llamado «World Book Day» (Día Mundial del Libro).

Chile instituyó su propio Día del Libro en 1927, en recuerdo del natalicio de Andrés Bello, el 29 de noviembre. Con el paso de los años, este día cayó en el olvido y en la actualidad se celebra el Día Mundial del Libro el 23 de abril, al igual que en los demás países.

En Uruguay dicha celebración lleva el nombre de «Día Nacional del Libro» y se realiza el 26 de mayo, dado que fue en esa fecha del año 1816, que se creó la primera biblioteca pública nacional, a partir de la idea de Dámaso Antonio Larrañaga, quien acompañó a Artigas en la Revolución Oriental. «Sean los orientales tan ilustrados como valientes» fue la respuesta del general Artigas ante la consulta de la creación de una biblioteca para todos los orientales.

En Paraguay, por resolución del 9 de junio de 1980 del Ministerio de Educación y Culto, se instituyó el 25 de junio como «Día del Libro Paraguayo». En esa fecha, precisamente el 25 de junio de 1612 el paraguayo Ruy Díaz de Guzmán, primer historiador paraguayo, nieto de Domingo Martínez de Irala y de la india Leonor, concluyó el manuscrito de su obra La Argentina, primer libro escrito en estas regiones de la América.

It's Story

The connection between 23 April and books was first made in 1923 by booksellers in Catalonia, Spain. The original idea was of the Valencian writer Vicente Clavel Andrés as a way to honour the author Miguel de Cervantes, who died on this date. In 1995 UNESCO decided that the World Book and Copyright Day would be celebrated on 23 April, as the date is also the anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, as well as that of the birth or death of several other prominent authors.


In other countries 

Spain

To celebrate this day, Cervantes's Don Quixote is read during a two-day "readathon" and the Miguel de Cervantes Prize is presented by the Spanish king in Alcalá de Henares. In Catalonia, Spain, St. George's Day has been 'The Day of the Rose' since 1436, and involves the exchange of gifts between loved ones and respected people—it is analogous to Valentine's Day. Although World Book and Copyright Day has been celebrated since 1995 internationally, books were exchanged on 'The Day of the Rose' in Catalonia since 1929, in memory of Cervantes.

Sweden

In Sweden, the day is known as Världsbokdagen ("World Book Day") and the copyright aspect is seldom mentioned. Normally celebrated on 23 April, it was moved to April 13 in the year 2000 and 2011 to avoid a clash with Easter.

United Kingdom

In the United Kingdom, World Book Day is held annually on the first Thursday in March, as 23 April clashes with Easter school holidays; 23 April is also the National Saint's Day of England, St George's Day. Conversely, a separate event World Book Night organized by independent charity The Reading Agency is held on 23 April.

United States of America

In Kensington, Maryland the International Day of the Book is celebrated with a street festival on the Sunday closest to April 26.

Interview: Chantal Gadoury



Tell us a little about yourself and your background?

Chantal Gadoury is a young author who currently resides near the beaches of Delaware,

though originally from the country side of Muncy, PA. She shares a home with her two

cats, Theo and Harper, and her fiancé Robert. Chantal enjoys to paint in her spare time,

drink a good cup of coffee when she can and appreciates watching her favorite Disney

classics with loved ones. When she’s not busy crafting or reading, Chantal is dedicated to

her family at home: her mom, sister and a furry-puppy-brother (and her Dad, who has now

lives in heaven.) As a 2011 college graduate from Susquehanna University, with a degree in

Creative Writing, writing novels has become a dream come true!

Which writers inspire you? 

Robin McKinley, Edith Pattou, Sarah Dessen, Sarah Maas, Maggie Stiefvater, and Stephanie Meyer.

Have you written any other novels in collaboration with other writers?:


No, I haven’t.

When did you decide to become a writer?

I never had a moment of thinking “Yes, I am a writer.” I’ve just always been one. As a child, I made up stories. When I got older, I started writing a journal. I made story books for my sister with coloring books. I wrote daily in High School with friends. I’ve always been writing. I guess, maybe in High School when I was writing with all my friends, I verbally said out loud, “I want to be a writer when I grow up,” but I knew then that I already was one.. it was just a matter of fulfilling my dream of writing and publishing a novel.

Do you write full-time or part-time?

 Honestly, more of a part-time writer. I wish I had the time to write full-time. I try to write daily. I try to get some hours in of doing something, even if its just for Tumblr. I hope someday that I can be a full-time writer. I’d love that more than anything!

Do you work to an outline or plot or do you prefer just see where an idea

takes you?


I prefer to just see where the characters take me. It’s their story! I love to have them tell me where they went, where they want to go – and who they meet. When I’m writing, it’s the character speaking. If I have an outline, I feel more restricted, like I have to follow that to a T – and it just never works out.

Do you have a strategy for finding reviewers?

No! I don’t. Other than to reach out to readers to ask them to read my novels. But I’m still trying to find the right method! Do you have any pointers?

What are your thoughts on good/bad reviews?

 I think reviews are supposed to be helpful. It helps an author to know what they’ve done well, and other things they could work on. It’s just when reviews are cruel that I feel . . they’re unnecessary. There is a way to critique someone who has just spent all of their time writing something; sharing a part of themselves to the world. Be gentle. It’s okay to not like a book, but it’s not okay to just be vicious about it.

Spotlight: Guardians of the Gauntlet


Princesses, sisters Camari and Mila, meet Prince Denir who is in possession of a special gauntlet. This gauntlet only works if one believes in a higher power. With this gauntlet, Denir turns Camari invisible. Trouble occurs when Denir is called off to war, leaving Camari in the predicament of being invisible. Not only must Camari learn to become visible again she must outwit two wicked characters who conspire to steal the gauntlet.







Will Camari have enough faith in her higher power to use the gauntlet? Will she become visible again? Will she outwit the wicked Bogwina (an enchanted Bogwitch) and the evil magician, Mecandel? Who else will she meet on her quest?

Interview: Lenita Sheridan









Tell us a little about yourself and your background? 

I was raised in the Goldstream Valley outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. My parents were Christians and I became a Christian myself at age eleven.

In my twenties I moved to Washington state (where I was born) to look for a teaching position. While I was looking I substituted and during a snowstorm when school was closed I began my first Guardian of the Gauntlet book. I was accepted into graduate school at the University of Washington where I Guardian of the Gauntlet became my Master's Thesis. I graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing.

I now live on Whidbey Island where I am a substitute teacher and caregiver, as well as a writer. I like to read, sing, do crafts, and walk my dog, a Japanese Spitz named Haley.

Which writers inspire you?

I am inspired by C. S. Lewis and Stephen R. Donaldson

Have you written any other novels in collaboration with other writers?

No.

When did you decide to become a writer?

I decided to become a writer when I was eleven, in fifth grade.

Do you write full-time or part-time? 

I write part-time as I have two other jobs.

Do you work to an outline or plot or do you prefer just see where an idea takes you? 

The first two books in my Guardian of the Gauntlet trilogy were written without an outline. The third book in the trilogy was written with an outline.

Do you have a strategy for finding reviewers?

I find that asking book bloggers to review my books is a good strategy. I am now reading a book titled The Author's Guide to Working with Book Bloggers. 

What are your thoughts on good/bad reviews? 

Unless I see a trend (a similar reason reviewers are giving me poor reviews), I tend to ignore bad reviews. I know that reviews are not supposed to matter to authors, but a good review always pleases me.

How can readers discover more about you and you work?

Go to my website: http://lenitasheridan.com

Any Comments for the Blog readers?

If you think the Guardian of the Gauntlet books might be of interest to your children suggest that they give them a try.

Any feedback for me or the blog?

I am glad to see that you have children's books on your blog. It is often hard for authors of children's books to find an avenue on which to promote their books.

Interview: Alexandra Archer




Tell us a little about yourself and your background? 
I’m A.L Butcher (Alexandra), a British fantasy author.  I have a background in sociology, history, mythology and politics.
Thus far I have three novels in the Light Beyond the Storm Chronicles series: think sex and sorcery – it’s adult (definitely) fantasy/fantasy romance, several short stories set in the same world in the Tales of Erana series, and a number of other anthology pieces, including one in Heroika: Dragon Eaters – an exciting new anthology of heroic fiction from Perseid Press.

I’m working on a novella for Tales of Erana, a second edition of The Shining Citadel (Book II of the Chronicles) and Book IV of the series. Hopefully there might be a short horror collection this year – but as I have been saying that for the last 4 years don’t hold your breath!

Which writers inspire you? 
Lots – Alexandre Dumas, Gaston Leroux, Mary Shelley, Terry Pratchett, JRR Tolkien, Homer, Ellis Peters, Colin Wilson, Victor Hugo, Bram Stoker.....

Have you written any other novels in collaboration with other writers?
Novels no, short fiction yes. I’ve written historical style fantasy with author Diana L. Wicker. Outside the Walls is a tale of love in the aftermath of war, and courage to do what is right.

When did you decide to become a writer?
I always get asked this – I don’t think one ‘becomes’ a writer. It’s like any other form of art either you are an artist or you’re not. Painters paint, musicians play and writers write – even if it’s just for themselves. How many songs have been written that have never been played, or stories written that are never read? Thousands, maybe more. Just because the story wasn’t published doesn’t mean someone isn’t a writer.  

I’ve always been creative, writing poems and short stories all my life. Poetry helps me cope – it can be a very evocative form of expression.  I think I was what’s called ‘an imaginative child’ – which translates as doesn’t concentrate because she’s off in some other world. I spent a while writing fanfic and adventures for games. The novels sort of morphed from a project I’d written for something and never used.








Do you write full-time or part-time? 
I have a full-time day job so I tend to write in the evening and at weekends.

Do you work to an outline or plot or do you prefer just see where an idea takes you? 
I tend to see where the adventure goes. I’ve tried outlining but I usually end up doing something else entirely so I let the story take me where it needs to go. Sometimes it doesn’t work, mostly it does.

Do you have a strategy for finding reviewers? 
Not really. Readers will review – or not. Can’t make ‘em do it. As a I reader I don’t review every book I read, maybe 1 in 5. I try if it’s an indie author or I particularly liked a book, but not always.

What are your thoughts on good/bad reviews? 
Reviews are a particular reader’s point of view. It might vary wildly from the opinion of the next reader. Not everyone has the same tastes, looks for the same thing from a book or interprets a book in a certain way. Negative reviews happen, get over it. If an author wants a review then they must take the good and bad. A review should be honest, if a reader doesn’t like a book then they don’t like it.

As an author it’s nice to be told someone likes your work but reviews are for readers. If an author isn’t confident in their work how can they expect a reader to be?






How can readers discover more about you and you work?

Any comments for the blog readers?
Fantasy and folklore are at the core of our cultures – every culture had and still has folklore and myth, storytelling and song. Of course now there are movies, miniseries, books, e-books, audio, plays, radio etc. and so the scope for it is vast. Think about it – within, say even just British culture we have King Arthur, St George, dragons, fairies, ghosts, Shuck, giants, monsters, Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy…. They may be stories we tell our kids, or were told as kids but they are still there ingrained in our culture. Look at the success of Harry Potter, Thor, Batman, Superman, Ironman, Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit… to a greater or lesser extent fantasy pervades and is very popular.

There are several places which claim to be Camelot, the Welsh flag has a dragon and dragonlore is big in Wales. We have the Giant’s Causeway, a few places called the Giant’s Seat, Giant’s Hill or whatnot. Of course some of the myths harken back to pre-Christian religions and beliefs, adapted Christian beliefs or simply a way for people to understand the universe. That’s part of the key though – it’s a way to understand the world – perhaps not our real world but pseudo worlds or alternate worlds. We follow heroes and antiheroes who are larger than life – gods, demigods, wizards, reluctant heroes, or even just the guy who is brave enough to step forward when the midden hits the windmill (thank you Frodo). We see part of ourselves in these heroes. It’s rarely as simple as good vs evil. Fantasy is an escape as much as anything else. For a while we find these people/creatures who slay the monster, bring the gifts, deal with the evil overlord – perhaps so we don’t have to.
