Supporting a fellow RAP author

Harvey Chute
I recently learned that fellow Red Adept Publishing author Harvey Chute is entering hospice care. He's been battling Stage IV cancer, though you'd never know it from his amazing work (here's his wife's blog, which talks about his fight: http://www.carriesgonnawrite.blogspot.com/). In addition to being a fantastic writer, Harvey is the founder of KBoards, a popular forum for indie authors and e-book readers.

Lynn McNamee, Red Adept's owner, is donating her earnings from sales of Harvey's book, Stone & Silt, to Harvey and his family. I remember Harvey saying, after his book was published, that it was a dream come true. It's one of my personal favorites from the Red Adept stable... This is me raving about it on this blog last year: http://zigzagtl.blogspot.com/2014/10/review-stone-silt-harvey-chute.html.



If you've got five bucks to spare, please pick up this wonderfully plotted and beautifully written YA historical mystery, about a biracial Native girl in 19th century British Columbia who must prove her father's innocence after he's falsely accused of murder. It's got rich historical details, a thrilling mystery at the core, and a fascinating depiction of life as as a child of two worlds. 16-year-old Nikaia must handle the tough realities of being the daughter of a white father and a Native mother who must fit into the settlers' world while also learning about her mother's culture. Oh, and her love interest is the son of Chinese immigrants... bonus diversity points.

It's available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and more (full list of retailers on Red Adept's website - click here). I'd buy it 100 times if I could. After you read it, please consider leaving a review on Amazon to help this gorgeous book gain some visibility.

Here's the book trailer:
