News: Constellation Station – Free eBook Promotion

Beginning tomorrow, and for only a limited time, we have decided to give away our wonderful, imaginative children’s title, Constellation Station, by Gary Alexander Azerier and illustrated by Ioanny Dimov.

Constellation Station Front Cover 2014

 

Karl opened the book of maps. Inside, however, there were no maps. There seemed to be…a story!

It began: Through his room window, Karl could see the night was thick, but he could see pinpoints of gold and patches of orange light scattered along the horizon. Soon, thought Karl, he would reach Constellation Station. He had been planning this trip for as long as he could remember and now, finally, his dream would become realized…

A great, evocative cover by Ioanny Dimov (art) and Elizabeth Lang (design).

The illustrations are amazing and Gary’s story is both educational and entertaining – we think you may consider purchasing the print version to capture the full effect. The Kindle ebook version is free from tomorrow and can be found at Amazon.
