A Random Act of Publicity

Heather McCorkle

Many of you probably know Heather. She is a member of our blogging circle and author of the blog, Heather's Odyssey. For the past couple of years I've watched as Heather has had many near-brushes with agents and publishing contracts. In fact, she did have an offer of publication which she ultimately turned down in favor of self-publishing. It was a difficult decision for her, and I admire her courage and determination. Her book, The Secret of Spruce Knoll (I love that title) has received nothing but rave reviews.


The Secret of Spruce Knoll
Published August 15th, 2011 by Abbott Press


The Secret Of Spruce KnollGoodreads Blurb:
It’s hard enough being a teenager under normal circumstances; imagine being orphaned, sent to live with an unfamiliar aunt—and learning that there really is magic in the world. Following the tragic death of her parents, Eren Donovan moves to Spruce Knoll to live with her aunt. Little does Eren know the entire town of Spruce Knoll is filled with “channelers”—a magical group of people who immigrated to the small Colorado town when they were driven out of their own lands.

Channelers are tied to the fate of the world. As the world slowly dies, so do they—and they alone have the power to stop the destruction of Earth. Now, Eren learns she not only lives among them, but she is one. When she meets local boy Aiden, his charm convinces her that being a channeler may not be all bad.

As Eren and Aiden’s relationship blooms, so too does a mystery in Spruce Knoll. The town holds many secrets—and many enemies. It soon becomes apparent that the untimely death of Eren’s parents-and Aidens-was no accident and that her life might be in danger, too. Only time will tell if Eren has the power to protect the people she has come to love.
