      Kimberly Ranger is daughter to the wealthy governor of a small, dry western town. Disaster befalls her and her family one night as they ride through the shadow cloaked forest paths and all of them are thought to be dead. Several years later a young stranger appears in the town’s saloon, asking questions about that night. But as time ticks on, respected members of the town disappear without a trace, animals are slaughtered in herds, and a tale as old as time is brought to light. The greatest adventures are not always the ones that are passed down in fables, sometimes the ones that really mean something are the ones that never get told…” - Ranger

     Actors for years, eight teenagers work alongside hundreds of others to create a medieval film full of astounding battle sequences, when unforeseen circumstances throw them into a real battle. Two opposing forces divide the teens and new, mind-blowing possibilities are presented to them about who they really are. Sent on a quest to find relics of years gone by, the young warriors encounter things that send them reeling, surpass the bounds of reality, and remove all doubt of their past. Adventures are not always what you make them out to be, sometimes they are so much more..." - Quest for the Swords of Healing

     Inspired by Redwall and a dream, this short story takes you on a journey with two adventurous otters who are searching for what has been lost. Giants, rats, and unfriendly ferrets are just a few of the things these two will have to overcome, but by far not the worst. How will they save their families from their captors, repair a falling castle, and find a way out of a forest that never sees the light of day?” - Battle of the dragons.

 
    The Dark Wolf is J.M.Christian's first published novel and the first book in the Heart of Light Trilogy.

      'Feared and hated, Darvir desires to escape the evil clutches of a malevolent sorcerer, who holds his mind in an iron grasp, and live a normal life instead of the one filled with darkness and death forced upon him. On one of his numerous missions, he encounters someone different that enforces his desire to finally resist the sorcerer's will, and a dangerous and life altering adventure begins. Elaine’s past has been continually marked by family conflict and struggles. Living most of her life alone and unloved, an outcast from her own people, she languishes in exile until circumstances force her into a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger. As a powerful evil stretches begins to rise across the war-torn realm of Elser, only two people stand in its path, and they alone hold the key to possibly saving the realm from the fire that comes.'- The Dark Wolf
 
 
   The Lost Princess is Kate's first published novel.
 
    Laurel is a fourteen year old homeschooler with a seemingly perfect life. However, when her grandmother goes delusional and starts speaking utter nonsense, Laurel’s world flip-flops. Questions are raised, and she finds herself thrown into Tranquility, to the kingdom of Calma where she must confront a tyrannical king. Samuel is the twelve year old prince of Calma. His father is the king, and tries to make Samuel into the same kind of prince as he is a king. However, Samuel’s mother Elizabeth taught him in the ways of Elohim, and to do the right thing. Can Laurel set right the kingdom of Calma? Can Samuel find the courage of Elohim to stand up to his father? Can a young elf named Soddriel find in his heart to forgive his enemies? With courage in their hearts, and the words of Elohim on their tongues, goodness is sure to triumph. Revolution is at hand.” - The Lost Princess

  1. Oh for sure I'll be entering!! And I totally get the whole "self-advertising" thing and how hard that can be. I could put your book and the link for where to buy on the sidebar of my blog if you want. Let me know!

    1. I very much enjoyed writing Quest, though it took me a good long time to get it finished all the way. And I enjoyed writing Ranger quite a bit as well. Though there were some points when I wasn't sure where to go with it. But all in all, I have to say writing books has been a good experiance all around for me. =)

      Ummm, I don't know then. =/ Do you have a blog? You can share on that.

  3. Where do you [whoever sees and wants to respond to this] get your inspiration for writing? :)

    1. I get most of my inspiration from reading other books, or having crazy dreams. However, some of my inspiration also comes from writing prompts, music, interesting pictures, and things my friends and family say. ~Kate StoneAcre

    2. I'm gonna have to say Katie hit it on the head pretty well. X) Quest's first chapter was a dream and that's how that entire story kick-started. I like pictures, they inspire characters and some places. I love listening to music, not just soundtracks either, to get inspirations. I have many books whoes plots flowed out from a certain song. And of course things people say inspire me all the time X) But I have to say, going new places, or old, and seeing things really brings my imagination out to play. I love it!

    1. Well, where I normally write, and my favorite place to write are two very different things. I normally write at my desk, or my Dining room table, but one day I plan to go to this AMAZING bookstore, and write there all day. Possibly during this year's NaNoWriMo. :) ~Kate StoneAcre

    3. Well, I think my favorite place to write would be my bedroom where it's usually quiet and I can write and think without any distractions. :) ~J.M. Christian

    4. My new roll-top desk. *nods* But where I'd really like to take my laptop is out in the woods, when there are no bugs and somehow there is an outlet to plug into....uh huh, right.

  5. My favorite place to write is wherever I'm comfy and able to concentrate, like my dorm room (when there's not five people in it x)
