Update Notice: September, 2012.


Hello everyone, and thank you for visiting our Authors Page.


As many of you know, Sasha and I have published for FREE, Book Two of our Amanda Ackers Novel series, "Amanda Ackers and The Realm Of The Witches"!


We published Book One of the series, "Amanda Ackers and The Deep Forest Elves" for FREE on January 3rd, 2012. As of today, September 16, 2012, that book has been downloaded 11,212 times! To say we are blown away would be a huge understatement! Book two of the series, which was published on March 28, 2012, has now been downloaded over 4,226 times. I guess a lot of people really do like the story!


Sasha and I are working on Book Three of the series, "Amanda Ackers and The Thirteen Shards Of Legend," as we get the time. It should be available sometime in 2013, as we are both working on other novels as well. We have received hundreds of emails wanting book three out NOW! Thank you for that, but honestly, Sasha and I are not writers. We write our stories just for the fun of it, and have full lives other than writing :)


Several people have requested reading Book Three, prior to its publication.


Should any like a pre-release version when we get to the editing stage, please let us know.


As you may know, we do require you to sign a non-disclosure agreement and fax it back to us... it’s just good business practice after all.


Adding up the downloads from the first two books of our Amanda Ackers adventures series, and all our short stories, the first short published on November 14, 2011, our total downloads have now reached over 34,000 as of September 16, 2012!


We are very thankful to you all, for supporting our work, which we do for the enjoyment of it.


Our thanks also, to the many of you who have emailed us with kind comments on our stories and the first two books of our novel series, and those who have requested receiving a pre-release version of Book Three. We had never thought of doing a pre-release, but what a great idea! It gave many a chance to read book two of Amanda, before we actually published it. Thanks to all of you!


We are most humbled by the response we have received, and thank you from the top, middle and bottom of our hearts!


If anyone would like to correspond with us, please shoot us an email when you get the chance, we would love to hear from you.

--------------------------------------------


Hello and thank you for visiting our Smashwords.com page.


My name is Sasha Gabriel, and I would like to take a few moments to say a little about Glenn and myself.


They say that creativity belongs to the young. Well, not always. Young at heart, I’ll buy, but nothing else.


Writing is relatively new for me. I’ve been an avid reader for most of my 60+ years. But writing seemed daunting. How do you write an idea to get over to other people without boring them to death? How do you write conversations that sound like the people who are speaking them?


Once I studied the “how to’s” a bit, and with the encouragement from Glenn, my wonderful husband and best friend, I started writing.


And I love it. So does Glenn.


Writing has opened a door for me that nothing else has – my imagination has soared and I’m absolutely thrilled and thankful, from the bottom of my heart, that others like my writing, as well.


Both Glenn and I have been submitting very, very short stories (no more than 600 word stories) because these are also being entered into a writing contest with that directive.


At the same time, both Glenn and I are writing novels (Glenn’s is awesome!!!! Think the depth of Lord of the Rings with the immediacy of Harry Potter and you’ve got it!).


But I want to share something with you all… Glenn has battled Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia almost his entire life. That’s a mouthful, for sure, but try living with them on a daily basis!


Even so, Glenn has worked to overcome the more serious side effects and his talent in writing, painting, and all over creativity is nothing short of staggering.


Honestly… I’m running to keep up with him but I’m mostly just out of breath!


So… the bottom line is… we’re all just human with all our challenges and it’s those challenges that make what we create that much better.


Please… If you like to read… then write. If you like to paint… then paint. Pick up that paintbrush and start. For writing, get to your keyboard and begin.


We think you’ll surprise yourself at your talents.


And, again… Thank You all for your kind and generous words of appreciation for our stories!


It means the world to us!


-----------------------------


Glenn here.


Just wanted to add that we never thought anyone would even read our work, let alone have downloaded our little stories thousands of times in such a short time.


Because of the kind words from you all, I will continue to write. I have, as Sasha had mentioned, been writing the Amanda Ackers novel series, with Sasha contributing several chapters to each book.


I had only begun writing the novel for fun, for our grandson Logan. I was not going to publish it, just print it out to give to him. However, with all the encouragement I have received via email, from those reading our little short stories, I have decided to publish the first two books of the Amanda Ackers series for FREE. Everyone keeps telling us we need to charge for them, so, should we decide to do so, they will be no more than $0.99 cents in U.S. Dollars :)


My many thanks to all of you, for your continued support.


Please feel free to contact Sasha and I at the following email address. We would love to hear from you, even to just say hi:

    This Is A Terrific Short Story!

    This is the second short story I¿ve read by this author, and my favorite thus far! I love a twist ending and I did NOT see this one coming! The other short I read was titled "The Shortcut," and was outstanding also.

    Interesting...but

    Could have defintley used more description, more background. Im not even sure the length could qualify for a short story...more like a couple paragraphs.
