The Indie Book of the Day for 31st of May, 2013!

Genre: Children’s, Literary

Nick-named Nina Beana, twelve-year-old Jalina B. Jons is about to have the worst day of her life. She’s never lived a day away from her home, slept on the floor, eaten gruel, or questioned her survival until she and her brother Jake are told that their wealthy, treasure hunting parents are dead and they are sent to a notorious, workhouse orphanage…Owenroake. Chased by gigantic spiders under Timbroke Hall, threatened by bullies, and snubbed by the Synderputt snobs, Nina plots to escape. Little does she know that her life is about to change forever because Owenroake is no ordinary orphanage. Magic, enchanted kingdoms surround Owenroake and the orphans discover a new world of hope, friends and powers. But as the magical barrier is illegally breached, weird things begin to happen and orphans disappear. Nina organizes a rescue team and embarks on a journey that leads to the brink of disaster. Thwarted by a villainous sorcerer who dispatches an evil entourage of gnarly ghouls, vampire bats, elves, and fairies, the orphans fight for their lives and to bring home a massive treasure. Along with her heroic friends, a salty pirate, and a dog named Bartie, Jalina B. Jons desperately tries to save all she holds dear. A great destiny awaits her, if she has the courage to use all of her resources to unleash an ancient secret power…

Read Sample

M. K. McDaniel (Michele) lives in a small rural town in Nevada with her husband, 8 Pembroke Welsh Corgis and a cat named LiLo. A devout Corgi lover, Michele spends her spare time with her Corgis when she’s not writing. Her writing career began at an early age when she day-dreamed stories regarding a certain hippopotamus named “Mrs. Hippo”, “Teddy” the teddy bear, and “Phoebe B Beebe”…a rather darling stuffed monkey. In the second grade, after mastering the art of print, she began putting those stories to paper. Her first big break came when her teacher, Mrs. Wills of Mistletoe Elementary School, allowed her to skip her other lessons because she loved to write. Unfortunately, this special privilege was short-lived when her parents discovered her low grades in her other courses. Michele’s writings have included published college papers, stories, poems, and in 2011 she published, “Nina Beana and the Owenroake Treasure Hunters”. Her love for writing has continued throughout her life and will continue in the Nina Beana Series.
