Write Here In Ephraim!

The fabulous Shirley Bahlmann is helping to host a Central Utah writer's conference in Ephraim, Utah on March 29th. 

The Write Here in Ephraim writer's conference will be on the beautiful Snow College Campus, and will go from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  I have the good fortune of teaching one of the classes, and my class will be entitled, How To Suspend Reader Disbelief.  I'm looking forward to the conference!

Far World: Land Keep by J. Scott Savage

I am reviewing yet again, another Far World book that I'm sure I've reviewed before on this blog.  I guess I just love the Far World series so much, that I can't stay away from them!

Far World Land Keep continues the story of Kyja and Marcus, two kids who are charged with the task of getting all four elements, Water, Land, Air and Fire, to cooperate in order to save their worlds, Earth and Far World.  In this second book of the series, Kyja and Marcus are trying to find Land Keep so that they can get the cooperation of the Land Elementals.  They already have the help of Cascade, one of the Water Elementals, or what help he can give.

Mr. Savage doesn't fail to deliver an adventure that keeps you on the edge of your seat.  From Marcus turning into... a dog, of all things, to Kyja jumping into a bubbling pool of steaming muck to save her friend in their attempts to find the Land Elementals.

Are they successful in finding Land Keep and the Elementals?  I'll leave you to find that out.  I will say though, that I love this book, and highly recommend it!
