Spirit Lake

Six teenagers from Northern California are assigned a group project for their sophomore English class. Little do they know, this project will literally take them on a journey out of this world. Cantelia appears much like Earth, until the teens realize magic is as plentiful as the danger surrounding them. A dark and evil ruler has placed a curse on the tribal people of Sikuku Island—the same island where the teens have been transported. Now, they must help the tribal people break the curse if they ever want to see their own planet again. Alex and her companions quickly learn that there is so much more beyond their comfortable lives in Pollock Pines and its legendary Spirit Lake.

The Wrong Fairy Tale

Being a hero is not such an easy job after all.

It’s junior year, and Alex and her friends are just trying to survive high school: boring homework, detention, crushes…and a fateful journey through a portal to another planet—you know, the usual. Despite being average California teenagers, this group of six finds themselves on a return trip to the strange land of Cantelia, where their Spirit Guide, Goden, has sent them. This time, they appear near the Alfaran Forest: a place, where, once again, many inhabitants claim these kids are the Chosen Ones and that they will help to find a solution for ridding the forest of a new kind of horror.

Will the teens have the courage to fight the real enemy? Or will they be forever trapped on Cantelia?

New Book Release: The Teen Reader’s Journal

Happy Friday, all!

I’ve got some exciting news! I’ve been keeping this under wraps, but now I can let you all know that I’ve released a new book! It’s my third book and first work of non-fiction. Pretty freaking exciting! 🙂

Here are some pertinent details:

Title: The Teen Reader’s Journal

Genre: Non-fiction/Teen/Journal

Page Count: 186

By: Tamar Hela

Blurb: Designed with teen readers in mind, this journal is perfect for average to voracious readers. Challenge yourself to read a book a week in one year, or go at your own pace, with plenty of space for fifty-two books. Write your thoughts, questions, or revelations about the books you read. Be a literary artist and draw pictures in the doodle section. Be inspired by quotes from many great voices in literature, and keep track of all your favorites with the bonus pages in the back. For the book lover who has everything, this is the perfect addition to any library, and makes the perfect gift for a friend—or yourself.

I had a lot of fun writing and designing this journal, and I hope that lots of readers will find it useful. If you know of a young reader who likes to write about their reading experiences, this would make the perfect Christmas present! Or, it would make a great gift for the reader who is young at heart. 🙂

Inside, there are 52 spots to record books, with the idea that someone could set a goal to read a book a week in a year. There are also some really fun extras pages in the back, where readers can write things like a TBR (to be read) list, record their favorite book boyfriends/girlfriends, or even track who borrows their books. Fun, right?

So, what are you waiting for?! Grab a copy today on Amazon.com by clicking HERE.

You can also enter for a chance to WIN a copy from Amazon Giveaways by clicking HERE.

Be sure to add my new book to your TBR list on Goodreads by clicking HERE. There will also be a Goodreads giveaway for this title, beginning on 12/17. Stay tuned for the links.

Until next time, thanks for your support and happy reading!

New Book Release: Fiction Writing Workbook by Robin Woods

Hello readers,

I have a special announcement today. My good friend and writing partner in crime, Robin Woods, has released her seventh book! It’s her first non-fiction book: a writer’s workbook.

This workbook is awesome because it’s great for both “aspiring” and seasoned writers. There’s lots of great space to write down thoughts, ideas, and outlines, while also having some good structure as guidance. I highly recommend this book, especially since it makes a great Christmas present. 🙂

Here’s the blurb (from Amazon):

“This workbook provides a space for you to journal ideas and thoughts for your next–or first–best seller. Robin not only shares her knowledge gained by years of experience, but thoughtfully gives space for writers to reflect and hand-write their ideas and moments of inspiration.” –author and editor Tamar Hela 

Writing a first draft can be daunting. This workbook provides guidance for key elements of fiction writing that help create a cohesive novel. Additionally, it gives writers powerful reference resources to create an emotionally authentic work and the space to hash it all out in one, easy-to-carry book.

Workbook sections include:

  • Brainstorm and outlining
  • Plotting and the “Tent Pole” Method
  • Character Worksheets
  • Conflict
  • Setting
  • Lined pages for easy journaling
  • And more!

Reference sections include:

  • Common publishing terms and abbreviations
  • Using numerals in text
  • Clichés and newbie errors
  • Symbols and symbolism
  • Synonyms
  • Self-editing checklist and beta readers
  • And more!
Some page samples from the workbook.

Yes, I DID write the foreword, thus I’m quoted at the beginning of the blurb. Pretty cool, huh?
