Something new indeed! I want to show you the cover for the second in the Glome’s Valley series – Return to Glome’s Valley. The cover was created by the uber talented, Diana Haslett. The release date is still to be set but it will be available this fall. I’m so excited about this new YA book and I hope that fans of the first will find the second as much fun. If you’re not a fan, what better time to get in on the action than with the newest installment set in southeast Oklahoma at the Heavener Runestone.
The Vinland Map, supposedly drawn by Vikings who discovered America long before Columbus, was met with as much controversy as the Heavener Runestone. Historians were on opposite sides of a fence – some said the map was authentic, others thought it was a fake. But maybe some mysteries shouldn’t be solved.
In the first book, Glome’s Valley, set fourteen years earlier, Ethan met Glome, the Viking ghost, and the fairies at the cottage where his father was studying the Heavener Runestone. Now Ethan was back and news traveled fast in the forest. Currently working on his PhD in Archeology, Ethan soon found the forest much as he left it when he was young. Only he had changed.
While making s’mores with Glome and the energetic fairies, Ethan learned that the Vinland Map lay hidden in a nearby cave. Every self-respecting archeologist had read about the map in college. And he wanted it.
Warned by Trondelag, the dragon, not to go up against Loki and the draugrs for a piece of paper to make him famous, Ethan decided to go anyway. And then there was Mac – his doppelganger from when he was young. Would he be able to protect her? With his magic sword and friends to back him up, how could he lose?
Once again Ethan revisits the runestone only to face challenges and find adventure, danger, surprises, and an epic battle.
Due out this fall, I can’t wait to introduce you once again to the magic of the forests of southern Oklahoma.
