Surviving Hope is the new series name for my first three novels:
Beneath the Rainbow, Beneath the Old Oak, and Beneath the Distant Star.
They have undergone some significant changes and have been unavailable for purchase for a while. This is all about to change!
All three books will now be published by BHC Press through their H20 Young Adult imprint, and their covers are now much more aligned to A Symphony of Dragons and future books.
Beneath the Rainbow
It’s those silly dreams that keep us alive.
Freya won’t let anything stand in the way of her dreams – not even her death. Now her family will need to uncover the clues to her secrets before it’s too late.
Discover how Freya’s hope heals grief in this heartbreaking tale of triumph.
Beneath the Rainbow will be available for preorder soon and will be on sale on 14th August 2018
Beneath the Old Oak
Turn dreams of escape into hope.
Meg’s mother is having a breakdown, and Meg can’t cope. Seeking to escape bullies and overwhelming anxiety, she discovers an old oak tree whose revelations begin to change her life.
Uncover the meaning of hope in Meg’s heartfelt tale of courage and growth.
Beneath the Old Oak will also be on preorder and on sale from 16th October 2018
Beneath the Distant Star
Discover what you already have.
Jasmine knows her very existence reminds her mother of something her sister will never have—life. Craving love and acceptance, Jasmine struggles to become her own person, and her fragile relationship with her mother shatters.
Jasmine needs to survive the darkest of nights in this bittersweet tale of hope.
Beneath the Distant Star preorder will be available just before it’s on sale on 11th December 2018.
I was asked to offer my own cover paintings after painting my dragon for A Symphony of Dragons. Not an easy task – and one I definitely didn’t take lightly. But I love the final covers and how they all work together.
The Surviving Hope Novels:
Three girls, three lives, three stories composed with the melody of hope.
Freya’s death sends ripples through many lives as Meg loses her best friend, and Jasmine, her sister. Lost dreams need to be found, hidden family secrets need to unearthed, and grief must be embraced before ghosts can be laid to rest.
These beautifully composed tales of coming of age, mental health, and the struggles of finding yourself, begin with grief and culminate with hope. As grief is faced, hope becomes the only force to cling to and build upon. Freya, Meg and Jasmine need to survive with hope.
My website will be updated with purchasing links as the novels are published.
If anyone wants to complete their collection of original covers I have a limited number of original paperbacks with the old covers. They are currently still available in my Etsy store Amaranth Alchemy at a reduced price, but once these are sold they will no longer be available.
These will also continue to be available at the Narberth Book Fair on Saturday 22nd September 2018 too, until sold out.
