Secret of the Laurel Crown

SECRET OF THE LAUREL CROWN

by Andrea MacVicar

 

The note on the old shoebox read: "Carolyn, I bought this at a garage sale. I know how tough life has been for you these past months. I thought this might help a sad girl smile. Love, Gram." Carolyn lifted the lid and dumped its contents. Five hundred pieces of the jigsaw puzzle tumbled out onto the worn yellow wool blanket. As she pushed the pieces aside, a folded parchment—its edges ragged with age—caught in a small hole.

Picking it up carefully so as not to tear the creases, she unfolded it and read the words in faded black, handwritten script: "he agape nikai panta. The Laurel Crown shall choose the wearer. Be warned. Beware of the Baal Contract."

Was the secret message about the puzzle? Maybe the message had nothing to do with the puzzle. Somebody from a foreign country could’ve put it into the box later on. But why? And who? In seeking answers to those questions, Carolyn and her brother Jimmy’s adventures begin on the planet of Double Suns.

It is now avaiable in book and ebook format from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, West Bow Press, etc.

Every author hopes to get public exposure, said Andrea MacVicar, author of Tales of Zoftic, a book about the adventures of a black Labrador that is written fully in rhyme. "My book is for charity. The more people know about me and my book, the more they will be inspired to buy the book. I am glad the city thought of such a thing."

PIECES OF STAINED GLASS


by Andrea MacVicar

A book of poetry.

I've always wanted to touch lives with words. To me, touching and words are synonymous. Spoken and written words can wound what a loving human touch can heal. And human hands can wound what a loving spoken and written word might also heal.

AMAZON REVIEW

"Andrea MacVicar writes beautifully. Her poems are thought provoking, engaging, playful and funny. I was inspired by her poetry. It was a joy to read her poems and it was an even greater joy to read them aloud."

ON BEING A WRITER

1. Write what you know.

2. Learn the rules.

3. You can break a rule, but you must know the rule, and it must apply to what you are writing. Break a rule very, very carefully.
