Congratulations to friend and author Brenda Ballard. Her book, “The Boy From Granite Falls” (book one) took the Silver Award in its category in the 2011 Reader’s Favorite Contest.
Brenda says, “I will be receiving my award next year in Miami instead of this year in Vegas; we were given the choice and I chose being featured at the largest book fair in the US. I cannot wait!”
The Boy From Granite Falls (book two) will be in print within the month—watch for it at Xlibris.com, Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com and other online bookstores.
The Boy From Granite Falls (book three) will be in print sometime in the spring of 2012. Brenda is simultaneously writing another book, “Billy’s Buffalo Lake Adventures,” which will be out in the spring of 2012 and also for sale at the Colville Indian Pow Wow in July, Colville, Washington.
Marcia Quinn Noren’s book, “Joan of Arc: The Mystic Legacy” provides an intimate portrait of the enigmatic young woman whose heroic life story has provoked ongoing controversy for nearly six hundred years. Fresh insights gleaned from the author’s full decade of research and three field trips to France shed new light on the essential nature of the girl whose faith-based acts of courage altered the outcome of the Hundred Years War.
