Adopted from Guatemala as an infant by an American archaeologist, Cory McClintock knows nothing about the culture of his birth, nor the ancient prophecy about the end of time predicted to come with the close of the Maya Calendar on December 21, 2012. Days before the approaching apocalypse, Cory is kidnapped and dragged back to Guatemala. As the last living heir to the first Maya king, only Cory can satisfy the gods' demand for human blood required by an ancient ritual. But the gods aren't the only ones hungry for a piece of Cory. Only by killing him, can his biological uncle make himself a living god and rule the new creation predicted to rise from the ashes of the old one. Cory has to choose: save himself, or a world reeling toward disaster.
The 2012 Prophecies won a Juvenile Fiction finalist medal in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards for 2012. Available in both print and Kindle formats.

About the Author
For Next Generation Indie Book Award winning author L. P. Simone, it all started with a Master's Degree in Latin American Studies from Georgetown University. Since then, Simone earned a Master's of Fine Arts in Children's Writing from Vermont College, worked as a school librarian in Washington, DC, and complained A LOT about the lack of good Maya Apocalypse stories. After teaching English for four years to tour guides at Maya ruins in Guatemala, Simone decided enough was enough. This book is the result.
