World Book Day is a special day for any book lover. It is the day when you can share even more bookish love around the workplace, home, blogosphere or world. It is the day when you should thank authors for writing books that make you laugh, cry or become an insomniac to finish them.
Authors I love you!
Bloggers I love you!
Books I love you!
But this post is more than just me gushing over my love affair with words. It is a call to arms friends! I need your help and advice. One of my favourite all time books is out of print and I don't know why.
Here is the first book (summary from Amazon.co.uk):
Song Quest by Katherine Roberts
From the Isle of Echoes the forces of good and evil are held in harmony by those who hear and sing. When a mainlander's ship is wreeked and the Merlee half creatures are heard crying across the waves the lives of three novice Singers are changed forever. Rialle, the heroine, who hears the cry of the Merlee, is sent to calm them with Challa, her voice as sweet as sunlight. Frenn, her friend and protector, follows as a stowaway while Kherron, the rebel, allows his desire for freedom to take him into danger and a headlong clash with the enemy and their mysterious powers. All are caught up in a dangerous and sinister web, battling against the powers of darkness that threaten to destroy their world.
Any advice on how I can start a campaign to see this masterpiece back in print? Do you know of any successful campaigns to bring a book back to the shelves of libraries and book stores?
I must spread my love of this series. I guess I should start with a review. I feel a reread coming on!
Katherine Roberts, if you are out there, I love your book and I wish every fantasy lover could read it!
