The Chronicles of Trellah Book Blast: $100 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

The Chronicles of TrellahThe Chronicles of Trellah, Book One: The Perpetual Rain
“The World’s Toughest Book Critics” have weighed in, and it’s high praise for Trellah!

“An excellent choice for readers eager for a suspenseful, emotionally satisfying fantasy adventure.”
~Kirkus Book Reviews

Fourteen-year-old Sophina Murray will be the first to tell you: Bad luck comes in threes. First, her father is lost at sea. Then, the rains start. And don’t stop. And, finally, her little brother is taken from his bed by a monster straight from her worst nightmare. A glimpse into the parallel universe of Trellah -- a land of giant trees, bizarre creatures, and a glowing red mineral with mystical properties -- convinces Sophina that all may not be lost. But first, she’ll have to survive in a hostile world where her darkest fears live and breathe.

Trellah is an original and realistic fantasy for ages 12 to 112. Parental guidance suggested for advanced readers ages 10-11 for moderate elements of horror.

The upcoming deluxe edition of this book will include illustrated paintings by artist Ryan Penney. Below is a sample of this talented artist’s work.

About Author T.S. Graham
T.S. Graham was born and raised in mid-coast Maine. He has worked as a sea-urchin diver, fish monger, home renovator, and in several group homes for children and adults with disabilities. His original screenplay, Stone’s Point, written as Clint Elliott, has won multiple awards. He studied English Literature at the University of Southern Maine, where, despite developing a strong dislike of the traditional curriculum focused on old, dead (and boring) scribes, he somehow managed to graduate with honors. His greatest influences are writers like Stephen King and Michael Crichton, whose talents would have allowed them to write more literary fare, but they chose to thrill and entertain instead. He now lives on a horse farm with his beautiful wife and five daughters, two poodles, two cats, two happy turtles, four playful ferrets, three fish, a corn snake named “Tiger,” dozens of chickens, and, of course, four awesome equines. The Chronicles of Trellah, Book One: The Perpetual Rain is his debut novel.

  50. Inspector Sleuth dictates that bad luck might come in threes, but .... the father is later found on a beach safe with WILSON, her brother mysteriously reappears and aha the denouement the glowing red mineral is priceless and its' properties unlike anything known to man. It transports all three family members to Utopia where hammocks/clear skies/grapes and subdued laughter reign.
