Backliner for "Escape From Zarahemla"

Hey, I thought I'd share the backliner that I conjured up with a little help from my publishers. Backliners for a novel are always a little overstated (and slightly corny), but I think I like the way this captures the tie-in this story will have with the Tennis Shoes series. Your comments are welcomed!!!

As the Passageway Reopens,
Mysteries and Peril Emerge.

It's been six months since the inexplicable passage to Zarahemla disintegrated and disappeared. Kerra and Brock McConnell have been reunited with their long-lost father, but an emptiness remains in Kerra's heart as she watches her Nephite warrior, Kiddoni, fade away in a vortex of time—possibly forever.

As a violent flash flood washes through the forested hollow near Leeds, Utah, it reawakens The Whistlers and reignites the mystical rift that leads to ancient America. Kerra and Brock quickly learn of multiple secrets their father did not reveal about his 12-year sojourn in the first century A.D. Everyone soon realizes that such puzzles will have mind-bending ramifications for their lives and draw them into a predicament as lethal as obsidian blades, with enemies as ruthless as the darkest savages, and evils that could destroy their family once and for all.

In the fury of adventure, Kerra and Brock McConnell find themselves in league with familiar friends from other Chris Heimerdinger novels, fighting alongside these valiant heroes and binding together Escape From Zarahemla with the wildly imaginative Tennis Shoes Adventure Series!

Revel in the wondrous spectacle as two
series of adventure novels merge into one!

  1. Sounds cool. Makes me more eager to read it.

  2. I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!!! I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE BOOK!!! I am so happy you're not done with the books yet. I wonder who you'll be putting into ETZ?... I will have so much fun reading it. Thank you for sharing your imagination with us.

  3. As you are the best scripture fiction writer out there, I look forward to all your installments. The backliner is tantalizing but the phrase, "enemies as ruthless as the darkest savages" is one that I think needs to be reconsidered. With misconceptions about dark skin in our church still rampant among members, and Elder Holland urging us to not promote the folklore (http://www.pbs.org/mormons/interviews/holland.html) I would be careful with that phrase. It's very 1950's anyway.

  4. please tell me you are posting more on the book??!?!?!?!?!
