My friend Sherry Peters has put her two YA fantasy novels on sale for the month of June! The ebook versions are currently available for $0.99, pretty much everywhere.
Mabel Goldenaxe just doesn’t fit in with the other girl dwarves—and she likes it that way.
To please her father, and encouraged by her older brothers, she goes to work in the emerald mines. Still, she dreams of a better life—and becoming Gilliam’s top axe-throwing champion just might be her ticket out. Mabel is torn between her love of the sport—and her love for the elf Aramis. But loving an elf is forbidden.
Dealing with her overbearing family, jealous friends, and deep family secrets, Mabel will have to summon all her strength to conquer her fears and become her own dwarf—lovelorn or otherwise.
Exiled from her family and everything she knows, Mabel Goldenaxe embarks on an adventure with her estranged Mam and the famous elf Aramis. In her new city of Leitham, a bustling metropolis where movies are made and female dwarves are free to choose their own paths, Mabel quickly discovers not everything is as perfect as it first appeared. Her desire to heal an axe-throwing injury turns disastrous and Mabel finds herself a pawn in the dealings of the Elven Mafia. Every choice she makes carries the threat of dire consequences for her newfound family. Can Mabel navigate the betrayal, missteps and intrigue to live the life she wants? Or will she be forever doomed to be a mafioso dwarf?
Sherry Peters has lived most of her life in Winnipeg, Canada. She’s been writing stories from the time she held her first pencil. It was after reading L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables that Sherry knew she was destined to be a writer. Her first “chapter books” ranged in subject matter from the hijacking of the Space Shuttle to the re-animation of millions of dinosaur skeletons.
Childhood family vacations across North America stirred wanderlust and a desire for adventure. Among the trips that have had the most impact on her life and her writing was the year she spent living and working in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Her writing adventures include attending the Odyssey Writing Workshop and earning an M.A. in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University.
Her debut novel Mabel the Lovelorn Dwarf placed first in the 2014 Writer’s Digest Self-Published e-Book awards for Middle Grade/YA, and was a nominee for the 2015 Aurora Award for best YA Novel.
