Free MG Fantasy Give-Away – Truth Teller by Kurt Chambers
This week I applied for my ISBN numbers (International Standard Book Numbers), and I’m expecting them to arrive by Thursday at the latest. I’m very excited! What this means is I’m finally able to bring out my MG fantasy, Truth Teller, into print.
My story has been released on Kindle and other e-book formats since January 25th, 2012, and started to build a fan base, but I have found that MG novels are not so popular in electronic format. Although my fantasy story can be enjoyed by children and adults alike, it was written especially so younger children can enjoy an epic fantasy tale without becoming overwhelmed as they could by some of the classic fantasy books. But as a rule, young children don’t read books on expensive electronic devices for obvious reasons. Just having my story as an e-book means I can’t reach my targeted audience in the way I want to.
But hopefully, all this will change in the near future. Truth Teller will now finally be coming out in print. This means I can donate it to local libraries and to schools so that it can be read by the people I wrote it for. As I said, this is very exciting for me. I have had lots of beta readers from my target audience age range read my story, and the feedback and reactions I received have been little short of awe inspiring.
So, to celebrate this occasion, I am giving away free copies of Truth Teller to anyone who does like to read MG fantasy on their Kindle or other devices.

Truth Teller Reviews:
Dawne Dominique - Multi-published author and professional cover artist:
The Truth Teller is one of the best children's fantasy book I've read in a long while. Charlotte is so easy to picture in my mind, and the fantasy aspects are brilliant! There are underlying currents of "real life lessons" that are subtly included...ideal for parents looking for that perfect bedtime story to read to their children. I loved the entire premise of the novel and will definitely be purchasing the next ones in this series.
Kurt Chambers has captured the genre with a wonderful story that will delight many a child's (and adult's) imagination.
Annie McMahon - Editor, published author and Novel Workshop moderator:
This book has everything a bestseller should have: compelling story, endearing characters, vivid descriptions, genuine emotions, and a lot of surprising twists and turns. This is a story about a friendship that transcends race, gender, age, and even realms, between Charlotte, a ten-year-old girl, and Elderfield, a teenage elf. Beautiful and heartwarming. I strongly recommend it and have reviewed Kurt’s story on my blog, Dutch Hill News.
Ralene Burke – Writer, Editor for Wives in Bloom:
Honestly, I can’t wait until my kids are old enough to read these books. Kurt has written an amazing series that emphasizes such wonderful themes as friendship, family, hope, and faith. I’ve read Truth Teller and Wrath of Siren and, even though they are MG, enjoyed them immensely. If you’re looking for wholesome reads for your children, check out the next big thing for MG.
