PRESS RELEASE -Yvonne Anderson works part time as a virtual assistant, but spends most of her time on the planet Gannah, researching her books. Her debut novel, The Story in the Stars (first in the space fantasy series “Gateway to Gannah”) was released last June, and the second is expected to land this summer.
Timing her visit to coincide with the Tulip Festival, the author plans to take a break from her space travels to touch down in Pella, where she’ll be autographing her first book in Branches following the Volks Parade on Thursday evening, May 3, 2012.
Anderson is contest administrator for the writers’ blog Novel Rocket, which was named to Writer’s Digest’s list of 101 Best Websites for Writers in 2008, 2010, and 2011. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, The Lost Genre Guild, and International Thriller Writers, Inc. You can read her wise words on her blog, Y’s Words.
Ancient Gannah was well on the way to taking over the whole galaxy, until the people of Karkar engineered a virus that stopped them in their tracks. Now, eight centuries later, the plague has struck again. When the League of Planets receives the distress signal, Karkar-born doctor Pik is ordered to find a cure despite his hatred of the whole Gannahan race. By the time he arrives on Gannah, it’s almost too late; Dassa is the only survivor. And she has a mission of her own.
Dassa and Pik survive a pirate attack, food poisoning, vicious beasts, and a plane crash. But the hardest part is enduring one another’s company. The Creator who wrote the story of redemption in the stars has commanded her to share it with her reluctant savior. That’s not all He expects of her, but the rest is unthinkable.
The Story in the Stars is published by Risen Books and is available from Amazon (Kindle or paperback) or Barnes & Noble (Nook or book). Better yet, purchase your author autographed copy at Branches (which is beside the bakeries) in Pella on May 3!
