MAGIC …. Now you see them, now you don’t.

For some ‘very, very, very strange reason’ sometimes I see my reviews on Amazon and sometimes they ‘just disappear’ only to ‘re-appear’ at a later stage ………

Here is the latest reviews I could find. A big thank you to Ron Merrin and Kim ….. and YES, definitely a sequel coming.

And please, keep the reviews coming too. 

5.0 out of 5 stars     Fabulous       10 August 2014

I enjoyed the book immensely. A great storyline with the characters being refreshingly aware of global issues that confront us all. The Kindle version is excellent value for money. There has to be a sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars      R Taylor Ward knows the meaning of “Cliff-hanger”!               5 August 2014

R Taylor Ward knows the meaning of “Cliff-hanger”! I was just getting into this book when it ended in serious suspense! I can’t wait to find out what will happen next! The world of Ak-cra is cleverly crafted and different to any other underwater world I’ve ever read about before. I love how bits and pieces of the civilisation are revealed throughout the story. The characters are strong and quirky like the CE Trio LOVE THEM! This is a great book to read with kids. My 9yo daughter loved the book specially the idea of aliens living in the ocean. It also sparked a conversation about climate change.

A post shared by R Taylor Ward (@rtaylorward) on

Have sold a lot of books during the first week that Ak-cra has been available in paperback.

Loads of people are coming up to me, or emailing / texting ….. and I can tell you now…..there is nothing more gratifying, or exciting, than seeing the smile on someone’s face, and the animation in their voice, as they tell you ‘where they are at’ in the story, and discuss characters and plot lines with you.

They are truly engaged with the story and I am enjoying it immensely.

Thank you to everyone, from the bottom of my heart.

🙂

I’m stoked with the feedback.

 

Global warming is a central theme in Ak-cra.

Ak-cra: a novel for all ages. Of adventure, magic and mystery with the survival of a people, and of a planet, at its heart.

A gripping page turner tackling one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. Can two alien teenagers make humanity see the damage global warming is doing to the Earth? Can they save their ocean home?

Join me as we ‘take a ride of a lifetime’ with  Cerr and Sena as they face untold danger and limitless adventure both below and above the waves.

Ak-cra is two grand adventures in one. Book One: Below the Great Water ad Book Two: Above the Great Water.

Ak-cra (combined book one and two) – publishing mid December 2013

Ak-cra – here’s another rear cover teaser

Can you believe that December is ‘all but upon us’.

Wow…………..2013 has flown by in an absolute whirl.

That means Ak-cra will be ‘out’ soon.

I have received the final print copy version from Book Cover Cafe (great job by Anthony, Katey and the team. Wonderfully supportive and nothing was ‘too much trouble’).

Epub (for digital print version) starts next week (*very exciting*)

I wonder what my kids will be getting for Christmas this year (and my parents, my brothers, my in-laws, friends….. maybe even pop one under the tree for ‘Secret Santa’ at work 🙂 ).
