So today is the 16th. And today is the release of The Spirit Archer, a novella, by Mike Evers. **Woooooop**
Some secrets are meant to be shared; and a boy’s encounter with England’s most legendary archer will change his life forever.
In 1237, a man journeys to a priory in Yorkshire to seek refuge and treatment for battle wounds. He is betrayed and murdered. His final, dying act is to fire an arrow through a window, asking to be buried where it lands.
Nearly eight hundred years later, a schoolboy’s incredible discovery will lead to a friendship that will alter his life forever.
And he’ll hear some tales and secrets of England’s most legendary archer of all.
Now for some more information:
Great Minds Think Aloud Literary Community will be publishing "The Spirit Archer" by Mike Evers, the release date is 3/16/2012. (TODAY!!) This novel will be available in all e-book format on Amazon and in print at CreateSpace.
I was born in Singapore way back in 1970 and spent my formative years in Wales after my family moved there from Australia in 1976. I’ve since resided in numerous places, including: Sussex, Kent and Poland. After school I did a BA in History at the University of Wales, Swansea; and later, a Masters’ degree in International Conflict Analysis at the University of Kent at Canterbury. This has given me an educational background which I have for the most part managed to avoid capitalizing upon - so far.
I currently live in West Yorkshire with my wife Joanne and son Joseph. I spend a few days a week teaching English in a local college. This is a career I have been doing for 12 years or so and it was in doing a certificate in education in Huddersfield that brought me to the area in 2004.
My interests are fairly varied and include reading pretty much anything. I particularly enjoy reading historical accounts and fiction with a magical angle. My early influences include JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Roald Dahl, Raymond Feist and David Eddings. My later influences are far too eclectic to mention, but include George Orwell, James Herriot and Michel Foucault. I also enjoy gaming (especially First Person Shooters and RPGs) on PC and PS3.
As an author I usually write Fantasy or Urban Fantasy, quite often with a twist. My first novel - The Chaosifier - mixes fantasy, adventure, humour and philosophy in a modern day setting. For various reasons it is unavailable at the moment, but I plan to re-publish a 2nd edition in the not too distant future. My most recent work, the novella ‘The Spirit Archer’ brings a different angle to one of the most famous characters in English legend. I have aimed these books at teens and young adults in particular – though older readers have told me they’ve enjoyed them greatly too. I enjoy working with GMTA and really love the passion and enthusiasm they bring to the publishing process.
Mike Evers will have other books available in the coming months with GMTA Independent Publishing.

So, I am reading this novella
It's only a short 50 page read, it may take me a while... juggling exams and assessments does not make reading any easier (I've been on the same book for a week now...THE HORROR)
Thank you to GMTA Independent Publishing for giving me the opportunity to review the bookie :)
Their sites are here:
When I'm done I'll be posting a quick review, but until then... :) OH! I think I will be doing a giveaway of this Novella as well, there are various formats of the bookie. More info on that later--maybe :)
