Grey Stone is a young adult fantasy novel that brings us back to dark times. Where myths and legends wander the earth and equality is a utopia that humans cannot even fathom. Join the characters of Grey Stone on the journey of a lifetime to restore balance, and bring an end to the land of the great red sun.

 

In the land of the great red sun, dogs sing, wolves kill, humans serve, and wolf-shifters rule with magic and menace. Pietre is a human boy who has spent the last thirteen years afraid of the sunset, the Blødguard, and the wolf-shifting masters who rule his world. Wittendon is a werewolf prince who has spent the last nineteen years afraid of his father, his inability to do magic, and the upcoming tournament he’s sure to lose. But when Pietr

 

e finds an orphaned pup in the woods and Wittendon is forced to arrest the boy’s father soon after, both of them begin to realize that keeping the rules might be just as terrifying as breaking them. Now serf and master must learn to cut through their own prejudices and work together in order to turn their world before it turns on them. Grey Stone is a story of dogs who talk, wolves who kill, and a stone that-for better or worse-can change all that.

Cover Grey Lore

Grey Lore is a young adult paranormal retelling of the werewolf legends. It’s a fresh new look at the origins of the human-werewolf-dog relationship that has readers on the edge of their seats! The positive reviews just keep on coming in.

Despite the perks of living with her rich aunt, Ella’s new life in Napper, Indiana, is pretty much tragically boring. Until Ella starts hearing strange voices.
As rogue wolves begin to stalk the edges of town and a serial killer with a penchant for silver bullets draws closer, the city of Napper seems to wake up.
Ella, with her new friends, Sam and Sarah, might be able to find out what the strange occurrences mean. Except that they’re all being pulled in different directions by people who love them; and some who don’t.
Before they lose their way to the whispers they hear from the past or the call to a future they’re not sure they want to create, the friends will need to confront who they really are and figure out what’s hiding in the silence of their sleepy little town.

Make sure you get your copy today! You can share, gift, and buy.

P.S. Don’t forget to leave a review after you finish reading! These books are definitely hard to put down.

Reviews, Reviews, Reviews!

Authors work tirelessly to bring readers into spectacular worlds. They stay awake for hours, they skip meals because they are ferociously typing away the most exciting murder scene you’ve ever read, or forgetting simple things like showers and their family.

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 12.50.57 PM.pngThey work hard on marketing, readings, sending swag to readers, and anything else they can think of to get books into the hands of their fans. And fans, we read these books. These products of soul-wrenching work.

But, after we read these books, what then? They get shelved on our tablets and bookshelves and marked as READ on our Goodreads accounts. And then that’s it. We might mention the book in passing to a friend. We might reflect on our reading experience, maybe even take it down and read it again until it’s dog-eared and worn.

And the author goes back to work writing another one. And you wait for it. As the reader, we demand more of the worlds we enjoy escaping to. We stand in line, we pre-order, we devour.

Knowing this, knowing that as a voracious reader myself, I owe a little bit more to the author. Nothing too big, of course. I’ve bought their book, but that isn’t enough. If I love something, or hate it, or find it enlightening or enraging, then I should talk about it. I should leave a review so that other readers can engage in the conversation.

Reviews are one of the greatest gifts you could give to an author. Regardless of how you feel about the book, reviews encourage other readers to buy the book. Some of you are shaking your heads, saying, “Well if it is a bad review, won’t that hurt sales.” And my response to you is this: “Not always.”

Have you ever read an inflammatory comment on a Facebook post? What does it make you do? Well, for me, it makes me read. I read further. I love the discussions, the point of views. Personally, I’ve actually purchased a book based on the negative reviews it got. (It was The Warded Man by Peter V. Brett, in case you were wondering!) It had good reviews too, but I was really intrigued to purchase by the negative ones.

Check out the great reviews our newest addition to the Native Ink Press & Ink Smith Publishing, The Gorilla Picked Me! got on Goodreads. The book is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Ink Smith Publishing, and Native Ink Press websites! Available in Hardcover, Softcover, and e-book (e-book available on B&N and Amazon).
