Of wheels and witches
I’ve just made my children’s story Of wheels and witches available as an e-book on Smashwords, where it can be downloaded in various formats.
In the story Jeffery Davidson, a schoolboy from Johannesburg, goes to spend the school holidays at a farm. There he meets Catherine, an orphan from England, Janet, a rich white farmer’s daughter, and Sipho, a poor black peasant’s grandson. They have fun riding horses and exploring caves, until they encounter an ominous symbol of a wheel, and through a witch they learn of a plot to harm Sipho’s father. In trying to find a way to warn him of the danger, they find themselves up against the power of the apartheid state, and they themselves are in danger.
It is available on Smashwords for US$ 2.99, though you can download a couple of sample chapters to see how you like it, and it might be suitable as a Christmas present for children aged 9-12. Alternatively you could check its availablity at Books2Read: Of Wheels and Witches.
It is possible to arrange for free copies for serious reviewers.
And reviewers, whether serious or not, are welcome to post comments below, though I would hope that you had read it first.
