“Reviewed By Liz Konkel for Readers’ Favorite

Mewranters: Attack of the Sea Monster by Kachi Ugo is a story about finding one’s strength and bravery. Perry knows his family has secrets, but now it’s time he finds out what those secrets are. That is if he can survive the family ritual. When he’s pushed off a cliff, instead of falling to his death he transforms into a golden eagle. This isn’t the joyous occasion he thought it would be. His parents introduce him to the world of Mew, beings that fight to protect the world from evil nature. Just when he thinks he’s finally done something right, he discovers every Mew is out to kill him, because he’s a rare eagle Mew. When a sea monster awakens, a Mew council gathers together to decide what to do with him: send him to face the monster or kill him. With the threat becoming more deadly and his parents refusing to answer his questions, he turns to surprising allies to find answers.

Perry is a character that really resonates and forms a connection. He’s a twelve-year-old boy who feels average, so average that he actually feels that he’s a disappointment, like he can’t do anything right. His journey is empowering, because it’s one of self-discovery. By fighting back for survival, Perry learns to find the power within himself and to accept himself, and manages to find his bravery and strength. It’s easy to fall in love with Perry, because he’s a real character with real insecurities and worries along with his supernatural battles. The relationship with family and friends is addressed as he’s thrown into these family secrets and is constantly trying to live up to their skills. His friendship with Sarah is a significant part of the story as he begins to feel lost when she suddenly doesn’t want to be his friend anymore and he uncovers secrets she’s been keeping. Every turn he makes seems to uncover another secret or twist, sending him further on his journey.

The adventure is action-packed with most of the events happening one right after the other. Every page has something exciting to offer as the action builds up along with Perry’s quest. Perry’s introduction into this secret world is a violent and swift one, with everything ordinary about his life quickly being taken over. This world of people who can turn into birds and sea monsters that seem to be calling him forth is the perfect catalyst for Perry’s coming of age story. Kachi Ugo tells a unique adventure with shapeshifters and sea monsters in a story about family, friendship, bravery, and strength. Mewranters feels like only the beginning of Perry’s adventures and will leave you wanting to see what’s next.”

Official Cover Reveal for Mewranters – Attack of the Sea Monster by Kachi Ugo Coming November 6th!

Here it is guys! The official cover for my upcoming YA Contemporary Fantasy from Morgan James Publishing!

Mewranters: Attack of the Sea Monster uniquely blends adventure with an engaging fast-paced writing style to present readers with an action-packed story of wits, wisdom, and sheer force of will.

Mewranters_Attack of the Sea Monster.jpg

If there are no sea monsters ravaging the seven seas, or three-headed hydras prowling our streets, it’s not because they don’t exist; it’s because we exist.
We are the last line of defense against nature’s indiscretions.
We are nature’s police.
WE ARE MEWRANTERS!

When Perry Johnson hits twelve, he finds out he’s a Mew—an almost extinct species of people who possess the ability to change shape into three different forms: an aerial form, a terrestrial form, and an aquatic form.

On the day of his initiation, he shifts into a huge Golden Eagle. But this is a bad thing since no eagle Mew makes it past the age of twelve. To complicate his life, his shifting into an eagle Mew has reawakened the sea monster. A tentative partnership is formed between the different clans. But when Perry Johnson realizes that this partnership could mean the death of his parents, he has a decision to make.

With every Mew in the country out to kill him, and the sea monster calling him out to the sea, Perry must quickly learn why every Mew is threatened by the existence of an eagle Mew if he is to stand a chance at saving his parents and killing the monster. If he fails, it may very well be the end of his family…and the rest of the world.

Introducing My Publisher: Morgan James Publishing (Take 2)

Hi guys!

Last week I did a post introducing my publisher, Morgan James Publishing, and saying a few things about them. I called it ‘Take 1’. This week, I’m doing another post about my publisher that I’m calling ‘Take 2’. It’s the official (and probably final) take, haha! Here goes:

***Official Take***

Morgan James Publishing was founded in 2003 by David L. Hancock, a mortgage banker at the time, who had written a book and been less than thrilled with the conventional book publishing process—yet pleasantly surprised by the immense power of publishing a book.

Created by an Entrepreneurial Author for Entrepreneurial Authors, Morgan James became the first hybrid publisher to blend the strength of traditional publishing with the flexibility of self-publishing.

“Morgan James makes an extraordinary effort to help its authors to grow their own business”
– Publisher’s Weekly’s Lynn Andriani and Jim Milliot.

David, with his bride, Susan, named the new company after their two children, daughter Morgan Renee and son Ethan James.

In just over fifteen short years, Morgan James Publishing has grown from publishing 6 books per year to publishing an average of 150 front list titles each year, with a backlist of over 2,000 titles.

Morgan James focuses on four book categories: Nonfiction, Fiction, Faith, and Kids.

Our vision is to publish titles that educate, encourage, inspire and entertain with current, consistent, relevant, titles available everywhere books are sold.

We even have something exciting we are working on called ‘Morgan James Complete’. Unlimited access to all of our books on any device. A subscription plan for only $10/mo. that includes our front list titles, many up to 3 months ahead of bookstores. It also includes our bestselling backlist titles. Let’s Read!

Morgan James Publishing is regularly ranked by Publisher’s Weekly as one of the fastest growing publishers in the nation. Morgan James ranked #44 on Fast Company’s Fast 50 for its significant accomplishments and impact on the industry over the last ten years.

For more information about my publisher, go here.

***And…Cut!***

That’s it guys. Thank you for reading! I’m so excited to be working with the team at Morgan James Publishing. I can’t wait for the book to be finished and finally be in your hands. I’ll be sharing more details about the book in subsequent posts. If there’s anything specific you want to know, drop me a line in the comment section below. If not, still drop me a line even if it’s to say hello. I’d love to hear from you.

Cheers!

Introducing My Publisher: Morgan James Publishing (Take 1)

Hi guys! So, in my last post I dropped a bomb on y’all, telling you that I landed a publishing deal a couple of months ago. In another post, I’m going to tell you HOW I landed this deal and my journey to this point. In this post, I’m introducing my publisher.

*drum roll*

MORGAN JAMES PUBLISHING!

MorganJames.png

Yay!

Yeah, you probably already figured that out from the title. Ha! Morgan James Publishing is a tier one Independent New York based publisher with offices in the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. They have a couple of New York Times Best Sellers on their belt, which I think is really cool, seeing how I want to be a NYT Bestselling author and with this first book!

Morgan James Publishing is a traditional publisher, so no vanity press and whatnot. They were recently ranked by Publishers Weekly as one of the fastest growing independent publisher in the U.S.

Okay. That’s my brief unofficial overview on Morgan James. Nice, huh? That’s what I thought.

The deal I signed with Morgan James Publishing is great. Better than average, in fact. I’m super excited about being a Morgan James author and can’t wait for my YA book to be published. I don’t have a final date, yet, but I do have a meeting in two weeks with the team. We’re supposed to talk about final release dates, timeline and a host of other important things. As soon as I have more information, I’ll let you know.

Fingers crossed.

Hello World!

Hi everyone and happy easter!

I’m back! Yes, I’m back! For good this time, because this is home…

Home.jpg

I have a lot to share with you that I’m totally bristling with excitement right now as I type out this post. I’ve been working behind the scene on a lot of projects, some of which are mine, some of which aren’t (ghostwriting and stuff).

However, I’m making a commitment to start blogging actively again. So you’re going to be  getting a lot of my posts weekly going forward. I admit there’s another reason for this besides the fact that I want to reconnect with you and that is I’m going to need your help in the coming weeks and months. Here’s why.

I landed a publishing deal a couple of months ago. YAY!!

YAY.jpg

It’s for a YA Fantasy Adventure. I’ll be telling you all about this publishing deal in the following posts. But it’s huge, it’s exciting, and I’m so glad to be taking this next big step as an author.  I’m now going to be traditionally published, which means aside from being on all online retail store, you can expect to see my books in the bookstores!

books-1204029_1920.jpg

I may be revisiting some of my self-published works now and then, while I work with my publisher on getting this new book ready for prime time.

I’m also working on another exciting new story, which is definitely getting the whole ‘traditional publisher’ treatment, haha! I’m totally stoked about this new book! It’s huge folks, I tell you. I’m going to be doing all sorts of reveals about this new story I’m working on with time.

See why I’ll need your help? To get the word out.

There’s a lot of fun happening here. A lot of great stories and wonderful experiences in these books. I’m sharing them with you, hoping that you would share them with others. Share the posts. Tell someone about these books. Encourage them to like and follow my blog.

I’m also active on social media: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The more the merrier, and we like it merrier, don’t we? :).

Well, there you have it! These are just a few of the things that have been happening with me. I’m glad I have you all caught up with me. I would love to know what’s been happening with you, your dreams and all. Let me know in the comment section below!

Wrath of Elijah Book Review by Nadine C. Keels

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00007]

The Blood Moons: Wrath of Elijah by Kachi Ugo

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

(Click the title to find the book description/blurb.)

“I am Angelus Mikhail, servant of Elohim. Your life has been weighed with the Scales of Yeshua and you have been found worthy of the Wrath of Elijah. Follow me.”

Growing up in the slums of Ajegunle, twelve-year-old Johnny Akinwale has always been feverish on a frequent basis. Johnny’s doctors were never aware that his fevers are the effects of an ancient power he possesses as a descendant of the biblical prophet Elijah. Once Johnny learns of his power and true ancestry, he’s pulled into a mission with other young warriors to thwart an evil scheme of epic destruction in The Blood Moons: Wrath of Elijah by author Kachi Ugo.

While this is a middle grade fantasy with juvenile readability, I was very much drawn to this tale and remained engrossed as I read.

There’s a richness and balance to the story: a boy who finds it hard not to hate his impoverished life and his neglectful parents, even as he knows he’s destined for greatness. Coming into his supernatural power doesn’t release him of all natural rules, such as his having to get to school on time. And even with its dangerous, high-stakes adventure, the story makes room for humor that had me laughing out loud.

The illustrations toward the beginning of the book are a nice bonus! It would’ve been great if they’d continued throughout the story.

I found the development to be a tad awkward in places, particularly in an instance where foreshadowing might have helped. There are several grammar and technical errors in the book, along with one word choice I wouldn’t deem appropriate for a children’s book. However, my main disappointment was in finding that the story essentially ends with a cliffhanger. Even if the first book in a series may not tie up the loose ends of a subplot or two, I prefer a book to have a complete story where the main plot is resolved by the end.

I’d like to continue this series—but not because the cliffhanger left me hanging. I’m truly interested to know what will happen with Johnny and the other young Descendants of the Patriarchs.
