It’s time for a bit of self promotion. I’ve never hidden the fact this is a writer’s blog, and one of its jobs is to promote my work.
My newest book is Will O’ the Wisp. This story has three facets the readers are enjoying.
- It’s a coming of age story.
- It’s a paranormal mystery.
- It’s a walk down memory lane.
The reviews are all suggesting this as well. Let’s look at the reviews:
So much fun! March 15, 2015 — I particularly enjoyed the fact that it was set in the 1970’s. I can relate to microwaves, writing letters, phone chords, and mercurochrome…
Bottom line? I loved it! Get the book. Read the book. You will NOT regret it.
Boyack’s Best Yet! March 16, 2015 — In my view, this is Boyack’s best yet, his piece de resistance! All his characters are strong and well defined, but Craig has excelled in stepping into Patty’s shoes; he has produced a most convincing teen, likeable one minute, and annoying the next, a self-reliant, independent and free-thinking child of the seventies, an era which he has expertly and admirably reproduced in this story, and which is certain to bring back many memories for many readers.
Although this story is classified as YA, I recommend it to anyone who is still young at heart (or who can at least still remember how being young felt).
A delightful read for young and old alike! March 15, 2015 — It’s bad enough she has to deal with adolescent issues like attending her first dance; an overprotective mother who insists she wear leg braces Patty knows she doesn’t need; and friends who have waded into the dating pool when she’s still woefully single, but toss in the centuries-old curse and a neighbor who has been possessed by “the Wisp,” and Patty’s life is far from average. I won’t give away the ending, but the author pulled the plot threads together in a way that was not only satisfying but fun.
This is an engaging YA read, but it’s also a treat for adults who will remember the era in which this is set. I loved the glimpse into a small rural town/farming community and the magic and whimsy of friendship. Remember Quisp cereal, your first teen dance, roaming through fields at night, exploring old cemeteries, sharing secrets with your friends? All of that magic and more is here. Patty is an everyday kid you can’t help but cheer for and admire. A delightful read for young and old alike.
Great YA Urban Fantasy April 14, 2015 — I loved this book, and it had something to offer on every page. Patty, and indeed all the characters, are drawn excellently and I cared what happened to them all. The world building, plot, pacing, and character development were brilliant.
