Celebrate: Adventure on Nemesis Mountain & Freebies

Today I'm celebrating:
1) Going out with friends for Mexican food at the Hard Rock Cafe.  Yes, there's a Hard Rock Cafe in Hurghada, Egypt. It cost me 5 times what I spend in regular Egyptian restaurants or pizzarias, but the food was excellent.  YOLO (you only live once)
2) The "I finished Ch 11!" and accompanying happy dance may have been premature.  After some feedback from CPs, I'm going back to revise...
3) Speaking of CPs, a dear friend who was in a children's writing group with me is releasing an MG novel!  Read on to find out more!


MG Action/Adventure, Coming-of-Age

Emilio would rather eat a slimy worm than miss the fifth grade field trip. Nemesis Mountain must be full of rare leaf specimens and bugs for his collection. Besides, he needs a break from the playground and Hans’s nonstop teasing. His excitement is squashed when he gets lost in the woods with his worst enemy. 


Alone in the forest, the two boys battle to survive the harsh wilderness, facing challenges that will change their lives forever.
