Exciting news! ‘Brave’s Journey’ book launch & art exhibition

My new fantasy adventure book Brave’s Journey is being published by IFWG Publishing, Australia. To celebrate I’m going to hold a book launch at a really great venue in Tauranga.

The Incubator art space – Growing Art & Culture!

To make the event even more exciting, I’m thrilled to be joining forces with the wonderful Incubator team to host a children’s art exhibition, based on themes from the book.

Five Bay of Plenty art schools have been invited to participate and we’re really excited to see what incredible art works they’ll create.

It’s a great opportunity for art students to be part of a serious exhibition with themed art works drawing on themes of earth, air, fire and water – the four elements.

Interested in coming along? Put the date in your diaries!

Here’s the lowdown:

About the book

A quirky fantasy for voracious readers and inquisitive minds, Brave’s Journey is a fast paced magical adventure story for boys and girls aged 12 and up.

The back cover blurb…

A boy. A weird tattoo. A silver necklace showing four elements: ‘Earth. Air. Fire. Water.’

When Brave woke up that first, life-changing day, he had no idea that pretty soon he’d be controlling the weather, talking to royalty and journeying to another world. Let alone riding a camel.

Life in the mysterious world of Arvalonia, where magic springs from the nature around you, couldn’t be more different to his ordinary existence back home. Especially when he meets True… bossy, rich, driven teenager True who’s out to make his life a misery.

Brave and True venture deep into enemy territory; facing a month without a bath, nipping stinkbuggies, evil ruler Mallevia’s ruthless green guards and eventually a battle with the vile queen herself.

Discover a place where the nature of power is within the power of nature. Escape the ordinary.

PS: Cover reveal coming soon!!!
