Who's Your Hero? Blogfest

I’ll be hosting the Who’s Your Hero? Blogfest to celebrate the release of the novel Saving Sam. The blogfest will run from October 22 – 24 at The Character Depot.

It's easy to participate. Write a maximum of 300 words in which you talk about someone who's encouraged or inspired you in some way. I'll be doing a random drawing for a $10 Amazon Gift Card as well as e-copies of both books on October 25. Don't forget to sign up on the Linky list below.

I’m also looking for early Amazon reviews, so if you’re interested, check out the blurb below and email me at jmwordsmith at gmail dot com.

A young boy's future hangs in the balance when those sworn to protect him become abusers.

A tragic domestic dispute between his parents lands eleven-year-old Samuel Simms and his siblings in the Downswell Place of Safety. The challenges come hard and fast, but the one thing Sam doesn't count on is being left behind in the children’s home. Angry and disillusioned, he gives up hope of adoption.

A ray of light comes in the form of a foster family, but everything is not what it seems in the Miller household. After a harrowing five-month stint, Sam runs away. A victim of child abuse, he's determined not to repeat his mistake and opts to remain a ward of the Jamaican government until he’s eighteen. The burden of secrecy is more than he can bear and Sam's hair-trigger temper makes him disruptive.

Under pressure from his aunt, Sam caves in and shares a tale of horror surrounding his foster parents. With his ordeal exposed, Sam must make life-changing choices. He can continue to be brainwashed by his abuser or face his nemesis in a court of law and stop a habitual predator from harming other children.

Saving Sam is a moving coming-of-age story that explores relationships, the abuse of trust and the ease with which evil can hide under the guise of Christianity and philanthropy.
