I’m so excited I can barely contain myself. In fact, that’s why I’m jumping the gun here, just a little, to let you know about the release of HUNTED: In The Footsteps Of The Ancients a debut novel by my husband, Hank Barone, now available at HankBarone.com

The story of Zach Malone and Elena de Alba, two brave 15-year-olds united by tragedy, is one action-packed adventure after another.  Although the book is categorized as ‘young adult fiction’, I think you’ll find that Hank has concocted an engaging tale that kids, and adults, will enjoy. To read the first 10 pages, click here. I know you’ll be hooked!

For the past few years Hank has turned his passion and pen to writing great fiction, with two adventure novels completed, and another in the works.  Wouldn’t it be fun to help make his first book a bestseller?!

Here are a few simple ways you can help make that happen.
