My sister recently got married in Estes Park, CO. It was a beautiful affair. And a family affair. In other words, we were all there.
Since Tahosa Treasure is set near the Estes Park area, a couple of months ago Dad and I scheduled a June book signing at Macdonald Book Shop in downtown Estes. We’re pretty excited about it.
Anyways, while we were in town for the wedding, we were able to stop in the bookstore and – low and behold – there was Tahosa Treasure. Our book. On the shelf. In real life. It was pretty awesome.
So, if you happen to be in the Estes Park area in June, here are the particulars:
Macdonald Book Shop Book Signing
Saturday, June 15th
10am – Noon and 1-3pm
We hope to see you there!
This past Saturday we had our very first book signing at the Full Circle Book Store in Oklahoma City. We appreciate everyone who stopped by to say hello and grab a book – we had a wonderful time!
Our next book signing will be in Estes Park, CO at the Macdonald Book Shop, June 15th at 10 am. So, if you happen to live in the area, we’d love for you to stop by!
It’s about time for a quick update on both books.
Yes – both.
It’s hard to believe, but the second book in The Talon Family series – Winter Chase – is making its way steadily through the “draft” stage. We are excited to watch this new adventure unfold word by word, idea by idea. We think our readers will love it and we can’t wait until it hits publication.
In the meantime, we are working hard to ensure that every word in Winter Chase counts. We want the adventure our readers enjoyed in Tahosa Treasure to be matched or surpassed. It’s a challenging and exciting process that takes time, focus, patience…and, well, a whole host of other things. But we’re determined! So keep your eyes peeled for Winter Chase – it’s coming soon!
Tahosa Treasure is doing well. We knew this journey would be more of a marathon than a sprint. Writing/publishing/marketing a book is no small feat. It’s a huge task that takes a huge amount of endurance. And that’s okay; we’re up to the challenge 😉
So far we’ve received nothing but wonderful feedback on Tahosa Treasure. Youth and adults – and pretty much everyone in-between – has told us how much they enjoyed the story.
Here are just a few things our readers are saying:
“This is a great book for children and young adults. ”
“I look forward to the next installment and hope the boys come out on top again!”
“It was exciting from cover to cover!”
You can go here to read more reviews (and leave a review if you’ve read the book and haven’t left a review already!).
So that’s about it – our little update on both books. We hope you pick up a copy of Tahosa Treasure and keep your eyes peeled for Winter Chase!
It’s finally here! The day we’ve been waiting for – the official release of our first book, Tahosa Treasure!
We are so excited to have reached this milestone. And, although lot of hard work is behind us, we know that this release is really just the beginning of the work.
Stories don’t tell themselves. They must be told. That’s what we have done through Tahosa Treasure and hope to do with the rest of the Talon Family Series.
We believe very strongly in the message of our book: trusting God when all seems lost. We believe our society – and especially young men – need more books like our book. They need good, clean reading that encourages them to be courageous and strong and full of integrity.
So, even though this official release date is just the beginning, we are so excited to continue working hard to tell the stories God has put on our hearts.
If you would like to pick up a copy of Tahosa Treasure, it is now available on Amazon, Kindle and Barnes & Noble.
Happy New Year 2013!!!
Here at Shadowtime Writers, we are expecting great and wonderful things in the coming 12 months. Tahosa Treasure is set for official release on January 8th – what a way to start off the new year! Look for it then on Amazon, Kindle and Barnes & Noble!
Our number one goal for 2013 (besides successful marketing of Tahosa Treasure) is to see the next book in the Talon Family Series – Winter Chase – published as well. We hope to have it complete and ready for release by this November.
Good question! I’ve developed a new (and highly sophisticated) approach called “Write for 30 minutes before I get out of bed every morning.” And, you know what? It seems to be working like a charm!
In fact, I predict we’ll beat our November deadline and already be starting working on the third book. Yes! A third! This is going to be one awesome series, people!
What is your number one writing goal for 2013?
Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to enter our give-away! We appreciate your support so much!
After all the entries were counted and a name was drawn, we’re excited to announce the winner of the give-away:
Congratulations, Jessica! 🙂 We will get a copy of Tahosa Treasure in the mail to you right away!
The release date for Tahosa Treasure is just one month away!
Come January 8th, our book will be available on Amazon, Kindle and Barnes & Noble. We are pretty excited!
So, today, with just one month to go, we thought we would celebrate by hosting the very first ShadowTime Writer’s give-away!
Here’s the plan:
– We will be giving away one copy of Tahosa Treasure to the winner
– Participants may enter the give-away up to three times by doing the following:
1st entry = answering the question (posted below) in the comments
2nd entry = “like” ShadowTime Writers on FB (if you haven’t already) and leave another comment letting us know you did
3rd entry = follow Shadowtime Writers on Twitter (if you haven’t already) and leave another comment letting us know you did
– We will be taking entries until midnight Friday, December 14th.
– The winner will be announced on Monday, December 17th.
So…the question is:
What was the last book you read on U.S. History?
And the give-away is on!
Nothing is more wonderful than when an idea becomes reality.
After several years and a lot of hard work, Tahosa Treasure has gone to print! The official release date is January 8, 2013. At that point it will be available on Amazon, Kindle and Barnes & Noble.
In the mean time, the book is available for purchase through our publisher here.
It is also available for pre-order on Kindle here.
We are so excited to share our story with you all!
The editing phase is almost complete and we are very pleased with the final manuscript!
One big change that came out of the process is a new title. Tate’s editing team did some brainstorming and we did some brainstorming. I have to say that picking a title for a book is somewhat like naming a child. It seems like it should be easy…but it’s not.
In the end, we decided on Tahosa Tresaure. We feel this represents our story well.
So, that’s the title you’ll be seeing from now on when we refer to the book. It will also be the title to look for on Amazon, Kindle and Barnes & Noble once the book is released.
Next up: we can’t wait to see the cover design and layout for the manuscript take shape!
