Overview

Runaways Jai and Ceder set sail in a boat full of holes, with a plan full of holes, searching for anything to hold onto in a world where nothing is what it seems. Never did they imagine their desperate voyage would ignite a maelstrom of primeval forces roiling to the surface at every turn, churning the fate and free will of every friend and foe they meet into a proper froth.

Following a boy and girl who have never met before the night they flee a life of slavery and begin their journey across the open sea, Riverlilly is at heart a simple tale of young love struggling to stay afloat. Steered by waves they set in motion centuries past, leaving in their wake ripples that will rock their trusty boat a thousand years hence, together Jai and Ceder struggle to hold course against the tide of an inescapable truth: the farther away they try to run, the faster they will be reeled back to the beginning

Meet the Author

My Lifelong Mission is to become the Greatest Fantasy Author Since Tolkien (or Lewis, on Sundays.) Fingers crossed, I hope to write and illustrate a new book each year until I get arthritis.I am only five books behind schedule.Good news! The Universe is expanding: there will always be room on your shelf for another good book. And if you should happen to run out of space, that is a great reason to buy another bookshelf—and *that* is a great reason to buy more books.When I am a nutty old hermit in a few years, I want to look at my top shelf and see a rainbow of book spines that flow into one another, telling each other’s stories while never touching, each giving weight to the worlds of its neighbors even if the characters are as far apart as the stars.My first book, Riverlilly, is a love letter to magic, deeply rooted in fairy tales, fables, and our aforementioned Masters of Classic Fantasy Goodness. If you like words arranged on paper that tell a story, look no further.My second book, Pence, is a morbid, absurd story about a boy carved out of a potato with all the wrong proportions of courage and common sense, a big ego, and an even bigger mouth. Every time I read it, Pence makes me laugh.Check out each book’s page for full descriptions and extra info.More art for Riverlilly and Pence is up on my Facebook.My third book will be available Autumn 2014—buy that extra bookshelf today!J. Evans

This book is very interesting. Im only on chapter three and its interesting enough. I dont know if it is appropriate for young readers so far. The fact that it has a lot of detail it may be hard for some kids to read. Other than that its a wonderful read and i hope it gets published.

Mia- "Im not sure," I shrug "But maybe you should think about forgiving Jake..." I play with the hem of my shirt. "I mean, you live once and who wants to spend their time hating someone?" Ryan- Anger flares within me and I grab Jake by the collar. "You rat me out and youre dead." I grit through my teeth. "Youre lucky to be alive." School tomorrowwwww

Nathaniel: "There's just a lot of tension is all. I don't know what he was talking about with Ryan though..." I frown. "What would he even do?" Woah late response gomenasai!
