Christine's Odyssey makes the Simms Siblings Series Sure Sound Super!

Howdy. I’m glad you’ve stopped in. My name is Christine and although I’m only eleven, I’m what some adults might call precocious. A lot has happened in my life, some of it bad, but like my dad used to say, good things can result from the bad stuff that happens to us.

To help me celebrate overcoming my challenges, a great gang of authors have teamed up and will be giving away copies of their books. Sweet, yes?

For a chance to win a pair of the books listed, you can do anything included on the Rafflecopter below or on Facebook. However, for those who’d like to win a $10.00 Amazon Gift Voucher, hop on over to the Jamaican Kid Lit Blog to enter for that.

Anyway, I tend to talk a lot, so before I carried away, here’s my story:
Raised in a hotbed of arguments and fights, eleven-year-old Christine Simms is the victim of her mother's cruelty. A domestic dispute ends in tragedy, sending the family into a tailspin.

A shocking discovery sends Christine on a quest to find the stranger who left her behind in Jamaica. Determined to unravel the mystery of her birth, Christine uses every tool at her disposal and treads with courage where no child should.

Thanks so much for dropping in! I hope you win the novels of your choice. I should tell you that you get to choose books based on how the Rafflecopter does the drawing of the winners. So, if your name comes up first, you get to say which pack you want.

Christine's Odyssey makes the Simms Siblings Series Sure Sound Super!

I will be away from the desk Thursday and Friday. I'm visiting my parents for Easter. However, I shall see you soon enough next Monday as the A to Z challenge begins. I'm going to be blogging about my favorite canceled animated television series, The Clone Wars. I think the Star Wars universe told from the perspective of the cartoons is definitely fertile enough ground for me to find a topic for every letter.


  1. Hi J.L. Glad to see you here.
    I have read your story collection 'Don't get Mad - Get Even and really liked it.

    Good luck with the newer books.

  2. Hi Michael. I was wondering when to post Joy's book post. Maybe tomorrow. It does sound like a great book. I've read Distraction and am reading Retribution. Great writer is Joy. Thanks for hosting her.


  3. Congrats JL, so glad your launch is going well.

  4. Congratulations, Joy!
    Now, say that post title ten times fast.

  5. Woo! I entered! Congrats and good luck to Joy!

  6. I've still never watched the Clone Wars so it will be a month of me saying "Pleh."

  7. Happy for Joy and I think it's great all these writers got together for the giveaway. Good stuff. (:

  8. J.L. is awesome and her new book is great. I've already added it to my to-read list.

  9. This book sounds interesting. Best of luck, J.L. :)

  10. I always seem to be late around the blogosphere - even for my own party. Well, it's Christine's day anyway. Thanks for the good wishes and Mike, thanks so, so, much for posting this and for being such a good buddy.

  11. I've missed you, Michael!!!!!! I need to go catch up on all your posts and see what I've missed. I hope all your projects are going well. And wonderful to have JL here today. I love seeing people living their dream. :)

    And I hope your Easter weekend is fabulous. Travel safe!

  12. Good luck to J.L.! Have a happy Easter, Michael. :)

  13. Jeez, I'm having an awful time commenting on blogger today... and of course MS updated IE, so now I can't use it at all and switch browsers when I have a problem...

    Anyway... congrats to Joy!

  14. Congratulations, J.L., on your wonderful new story, which I'll certainly keep in mind.

    Have a good safe trip and a warm visit with your parents, Michael.

  15. Congrats to Joy!

    Enjoy your break, Michael. I'm not too clued up on the Clone Wars so I look forward to your A-Z theme.

  16. Yay, Joy! This is the second blog I've seen her on. I'm so excited for her!!

  17. Thanks so much for the good wishes, all and many thanks to Michael for hosting me.
