Book cover Amanda in New Mexico: Ghosts in the Wind by author Darlene Foster

To celebrate the one year launch of Amanda in Mexico-Ghosts in the Wind and just in time for Halloween, I am giving away a copy. Your choice of a print or digital copy if you live in Canada, US or the UK. If you live anywhere else, the prize will be a digital copy.  Simply fill in the Rafflecopter form below. The contest is from September 30th to October 7th, 2018.

Amanda Ross is on a school trip to Taos, New Mexico with several of her fellow creative students. Join Amanda, Cleo and their funny friend, Caleb, as they visit an ancient and beautiful landscape where a traditional hacienda, an ancient pueblo, and a haunted and spooky hotel all hold secrets to a wild and violent past. Does Cleo really see ghosts? Can Amanda escape the eerie wind that follows her everywhere? Perhaps the Day of the Dead will reveal the mysteries of Taos in this latest adventure of Amanda’s travels.

This is what one reviewer had to say about Amanda in New Mexico.

Amanda in New Mexico: Ghosts in the Wind finds student Amanda Ross on a school trip in Taos, New Mexico. While there, her classmate Cleo thinks she sees ghosts. Amanda feels anxious too, sensing that something or someone is watching her. An engaging adventure ensues during their visit to the Land of Enchantment in this sixth book in the fun and educational series for early middle-grade readers. 5/5 Literary Soiree

Book Review & Excerpt – Darlene Foster.

Things are heating up. And I don’t mean the weather because it’s doubtful that’s going to happen this year. What is happening, is my second book, Amanda in Spain-The Girl in the Painting, has been released in print and the book launch is scheduled for June 25 at Albany Books. Albany Books is a wonderful, cozy, well stocked bookstore here in my home town of Tsawwassen, BC. I appreciate how Ruth and her staff are so supportive of local authors. http://www.albanybooks.com/

Albany Books

In my spare time I have been busy marketing and promoting the event. This includes hanging posters, wonderfully created by my talented publisher, Michelle from ireadiwrite Publishing, (who is also responsible for the smashing cover), sending out press releases, emails and postings on various sites. The marketing, as writers are aware, is a lot of work, but also fun. My grade three teacher may even attend. How wonderful would that be? She is someone who encouraged me to follow my dreams at a young age.

The outfit has been purchased, nail polish picked out, chapter to be read chosen and I feel so ready. The problem is – I still can’t believe that this little girl from the farm, actually has two books published! I often feel I may wake up and find this was all a dream.

To celebrate the print publication of my second book, I am giving away a copy of Amanda in Spain. To enter, just add a brief comment to this posting, and your email address (if I don’t already have it, so I can let you know if you win) and on June 25, the day of the launch, I will have my husband Paul draw the lucky winner. Pass this blog onto your friends so they can have a chance at winning.

The heat is on to have a successful launch and some good sales. This kind of heat I can handle – now if only we could do something about this unseasonably cool weather!
