I am home sick from work today with what I think is flu. It’s 4:25pm and I just got out of bed about a half hour ago. Today still is a happy day for me since I received notice that my narration of the beautiful novella “Sister Raven”, written by author Karen Rae Levine, has been approved and will now head to a final validation and quality control process and be available to the audiobook world in 2 to 3 weeks!
The description of this wonderful story is as follows: Bound by magic to Old Mother, Beetle Girl lives a lonely life on the fringes of her Native American society. When forced into the role of Keeper of the Ravens, she must break the bonds of her cruel mother, confront a powerful shape-shifter who threatens to destroy the village, and solve the mystery of her past.
“An Unexpected Pleasure: SISTER RAVEN is a beautifully written fantasy novel about a Native American girl in thrall to an evil old crone, who discovers her real identity and saves her tribe. It’s the sort of YA novel that adult readers will also enjoy. Highly recommended both for the beauty of the language and the exciting story.”
I will also have the honor and pleasure of meeting Ms. Levine on January 19, 2013 at the “Local Authors Showcase” at the Huntington Public Library (in Huntington, NY) and I am thrilled! I absolutely love the fact that we live so close to each other! You can check out her website at karenraelevine.com
