GUEST POST:Nancy Holder and Debbie ViguieAuthors of Wolf Springs Chronicles: Unleashed...among other works....
With Unleashed we hope that we can reach young adults and touch them and show them that no matter what they’re going through that: a) they are never truly alone, b) someone else always has it worse, and c) even in the darkest night there’s hope. And maybe that’s what it comes right down to, because for most young adult novels, and certainly the ones we write, no matter how desperate or hard or terrifying the situation the characters are going through, there’s always hope. And it is our desire that everyone, young or old, always continues to believe and to seek that hope, no matter how hard life gets.
Wow...sounds like me, if you minus out the daughter and the husband. Yes, I too am proud to hang on to my childlike wonder and enthusiasm for reading. It lends the mind the creativity it needs to really appreciate all the new worlds just waiting for you between the pages of your next read...and I can only imagine (as we can see from these two authors) the power it lends in the actual creation of such works.
This book is the first in a new YA series, so don't miss out on how it all begins. Unleashed reached publication on November 22nd, 2011 from Random House Children's Books and should be readily available on a bookstore shelf near you. For more information on this title as well as their full catalog, feel free to visit them online, or follow along on Twitter. To discover more of this literary world, check out the official series site. To see just what other worlds were created by both Ms. Holder and Ms. Viguie, feel free to search right here on Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers (as they've been guests previously and I've done a review or two), explore their websites (1, 2), or follow their Twitter feeds (1, 2).
Be sure to check out the rest of the tour as it winds its way through the blogosphere. Yesterday, a mini-interview was hosted by The Compulsive Reader. Next stop on the tour....Literary Escapism. Also, if you happen to be in the San Diego, CA area...Ms. Holder will be appearing at the Mysterious Galaxy for a book signing! More details can be found at the bottom of the tour page.
Until next time...happy reading!
