New books: Differences Between Us by Karen Gansel and The Seadrop Pendant by Megan Hotchkiss


Hi, Brian.
Thanks, Brian, for all your workshops on writing skills I attended and good feedback on draft writing projects which helped me to complete and self-publish my first novel, Differences Between Us.
This psychological suspense is about a mixed-race couple who overcome many obstacles after a hurricane in New Orleans to hang on to their love for each other.
For Jerome Decarie, life is playing in a jazz band. That’s why he moved to New Orleans. But then he befriends a young black woman, Lara Jackson, who is desperate, after the storm of the decade, to find the aunt and uncle who raised her.
You can find this book at: Amazon: https://amzn.to/2LSVDnx or Kobo: https://bit.ly/2L9PSk4. For more information, and to view a video interview with the author {me}, you can go to my website: www.newfictionwriter.com.             
All the best,
Karen Gansel

Hi Brian!
I have attended several workshops of yours over the years, most notably Writing Kids' Lit and How to Get Published. I am happy to inform you that my first middle-grade fantasy novel, The Seadrop Pendant!
Thank you.
Megan Hotchkiss

The Seadrop Pendant
After moving from Toronto to the tiny village of Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, Taryn Noble expects nothing except a long, boring summer. Until she receives a mysterious pendant for her 14th birthday ... until those those strange creatures start chasing Taryn,  her blind little sister Kaileigh, and her new neighbour Malcolm McKenna ... until two strangers pull Taryn into a world unlike anything she’s ever imagined.
In the magical, underwater world of Marinesia, Taryn, Kaileigh and Malcolm are befriended by a clan of merfolk. Through them, the three children learn that they are the only ones who can locate three Marinesian Artifacts that are needed to permanently seal the rift in the Barrier between Marinesia and Earth, and protect them from the evil sea serpent Leviathan, and his legions of bloodthirsty Drakken.
Time is running out. The Barrier between Marinesia and Earth is weakening, and if Leviathan manages to collect all three Artifacts, that Barrier will be blasted wide open – resulting in a cataclysmic event that will ultimately wipe out all life on both worlds.

The Seadrop Pendant is available from Friesen Press here.
