Blog Tour: Adventure on Nemesis Mountain

Annie McMahon’s Blog Tour – October 15-31

Today I'm very excited to be a part of the blog tour to celebrate a fantastic author who I have had the privilege to be a part of the same critique group of. As someone who read some of the earlier drafts of this story I'm glad to be able to pass on the word that now people can read this great story.

Blog tour post:

One-sentence pitch
When nature-loving Emilio and athletic Hans get lost in the forest during a fifth grade field trip, they have no choice but to put their differences aside to survive the harsh wilderness.

Back Cover
Emilio would rather eat a slimy worm than miss the fifth grade field trip. Nemesis Mountain must be full of rare leaf specimens and bugs for his collection. Besides, he needs a break from the playground and Hans’s nonstop teasing. His excitement is squashed when he gets lost in the woods with his worst enemy.
Alone in the forest, the two boys battle to survive the harsh wilderness, facing challenges that will change their lives forever.

Oh man, that would stink. I love nature, but I went on one high adventure trip where the guy who knew where we were going got lost for a bit. 17 miles, blisters, dehydration and serious exhaustion later...

Thanks for stopping by, Crystal! Wow, seventeen miles! That must have been exhausting. The kids in my story didn't get it that hard. They did get a few blisters, though.

I hope you've sold a shed-load of books by now, Annie :)
