My new novel and how you can participate!

I've been away for a while...

Not really away, just:

1.adopted a puppy named Chanel (a Chihuahua mix probably terrier, maybe Jack Russell, who loves to jump, run, and play tug of war with one of my old socks. Chanel even appears in my latest YA novel),

2.trying to do final revisions for my latest YA novel, SECRETS TO FOREVER.

This is a picture of one of the spots sixteen-year-old Randy and Olivia visit on their cross-country motorcycle tour of the U.S. as they come of age, solve family dilemmas, face romance, nearly go to jail, and meet up with some pretty shifty critters.

This picture portrays one of the trails they follow. Can you name it and tell what city it's in? If you can, I'll gift you a copy of one of my e-books.


Even if you have no idea what city this trail is in or don't care, go to my website at http://www.carolynchambersclark.com to become one of Chanel's Cheerleaders and get current updates on what happens with my novel. Or just to cheer me on as I hunt for an agent!!

Exciting Next Chapter in Michelle Hauck's Birth of Saints Series Available now!

The next volume in the Birth of Saints series is available now!

faithful-n1
Following Grudging–and with a mix of Terry Goodkind and Bernard Cornwall–religion, witchcraft, and chivalry war in Faithful, the exciting next chapter in Michelle Hauck’s Birth of Saints series!
A world of Fear and death…and those trying to save it.

Colina Hermosa has burned to the ground. The Northern invaders continue their assault on the ciudades-estados. Terror has taken hold, and those that should be allies betray each other in hopes of their own survival. As the realities of this devastating and unprovoked war settles in, what can they do to fight back?On a mission of hope, an unlikely group sets out to find a teacher for Claire, and a new weapon to use against the Northerners and their swelling army.

What they find instead is an old woman.

But she’s not a random crone—she’s Claire’s grandmother. She’s also a Woman of the Song, and her music is both strong and horrible. And while Claire has already seen the power of her own Song, she is scared of her inability to control it, having seen how her magic has brought evil to the world, killing without reason or remorse. To preserve a life of honor and light, Ramiro and Claire will need to convince the old woman to teach them a way so that the power of the Song can be used for good. Otherwise, they’ll just be destroyers themselves, no better than the Northerners and their false god, Dal. With the annihilation their enemy has planned, though, they may not have a choice.

A tale of fear and tragedy, hope and redemption, Faithful is the harrowing second entry in the Birth of Saints trilogy.

A world of chivalry and witchcraft…and the invaders who would destroy everything.The North has invaded, bringing a cruel religion and no mercy. The ciudades-estados who have stood in their way have been razed to nothing, and now the horde is before the gates of Colina Hermosa…demanding blood.
On a mission of desperation, a small group escapes the besieged city in search of the one thing that might stem the tide of Northerners: the witches of the southern swamps.
The Women of the Song.
But when tragedy strikes their negotiations, all that is left is a single untried knight and a witch who has never given voice to her power. And time is running out.
A lyrical tale of honor and magic, Grudging is the opening salvo in the Book of Saints trilogy.
