The draft receives a great appraisal

@AwesomeIndies completed a manuscript appraisal for* Shasha and Wally Watson Versus the Faker*... looking at November 2015 for a release!

Wally loves to count. He only like food that is white or yellow. He organizes the crayons in school alphabetically, not by color. How can a kid with a head full of weird fears and ordinary numbers help his sister Shasha,a world-famous detective though the world doesn't know it yet? When a very suspicious police detective comes to their house looking for a missing girl, they are on the case as 'kids helping kids'. Their search will put them in a race with their grandfather, who was an investigative reporter as a boy in Trinidad, and the Faker, a strange figure who seems to be showing up in disguises around town asking questions. A quirky mystery that does not add up!

"Let the pictures tel you their own moral..." C.S. Lewis

*Let the pictures tell you their own moral. *

For the moral inherent in them will rise from whatever spiritual roots you have succeeded in striking during the whole course of your life.

But if they don’t show you any moral, don’t put one in.

The only moral that is of any value is that which arises inevitably from the whole cast of the author’s mind.

Olga is: female, giant, cruel, lonely, bullied, scared+ brave

Olga owns: crystals, goggles, telescope, gadgets with gears

Who or What is OLGA?

OLGA is a fantasy novel for young people.

A giant with a crystal heart goes fishing for children, and she catches one named Jack. But why? OLGA treats him like a plaything or a toy, yet also says that she is in danger and needs his help as a human hero. Meanwhile, OLGA doesn’t realize she has also brought another child into her realm. It’s up to Jack’s friend Sally to unravel the mysteries of the Cloud Kingdom before it is too late. Clouds are gathering and the Giants are coming out of the earth’s dark places. If the two kids are brave enough, Sally has a chance to save Jack, and possibly the world.

Buy or borrow a book to read. It is currently available as a paperback for $6.25 or an e-book for $2.99 from Amazon. Paperback orders come with an e-book version. You can also get a paperback at The Bruised Apple Books and Music in Peekskill. Thank you for your support!

The Bruised Apple Books and Music in Peekskill, NY carries OLGA. For years, The Bruised Apple has been a refuge and a source of inspiration for me. Check out this nice display on the counter. Make sure you buy your copy there in a nice loud voice, "What's this, OLGA?! Looks AWESOME!" A few signed copies are available. Thank you, Andrew and Bruised Apple!
