New Book by Lillian Cauldwell – Anna Mae Mysteries Coming Soon!

September 30, 2008

I can’t wait to read this new book by Lillian Cauldwell – out in November – it’s about twelve-year-old Anna Mae Botts, her eight-year-old brother Malcolm, and Anna Mae’s best friend Raul Garcia, face a ghostly black fist on their first day of school.  It blocks their entrance into school, while dropping paper clues about Jefferson Davis’ lost Civil War gold. Things get more complicated when a school fire occurs.

Mysterious events soon overtake Raul, Malcolm, and Anna Mae at school as well as at home. Rats, alphabet noodle clues, floating chalk, and phantom false-bottom wagons lead the tweens to travel the same route by car that was taken by Jefferson Davis and his gold-laden wagon train.

With divining rods given to her by her granma, computer printouts, and Spirit Journey memories that take her back to a Civil War past, Anna Mae, Raul, and Malcolm find Jefferson Davis’ lost gold treasure, part of it buried on Chennault Plantation and more of it in a vacant lot on the outskirts of Warthen, Georgia.

Betty Jo Tucker Loves Lanaia Lee’s, Book Of Atlantis

September 12, 2008

Betty Jo Tucker, renowned movie critic, had rave reviews for Of Atlantis!  She calls it “Page to Screen Material.”  Read her article here:

For Film Consideration
By Betty Jo Tucker
Film Critic and Autbor

Into her bubbling cauldron of creativity, author Lanaia Lee decided to toss such tempting ingredients as fantasy, magic, romance, betrayal, revenge, and the eternal battle of good vs. evil. The result? Of Atlantis, a novel that’s very hard to put down once you start reading it.

Because I’m a confirmed movie addict, I always read a book with the question of how successful the story might be as a film in the back of my mind. And this one practically screams out “destined to be a movie” -– or a television mini-series. The longstanding struggle between its great hero, King Archimedes of Atlantis, and the equally powerful villain, Uric, generates more than enough suspense to keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

Enhancing the plot are other colorful characters including:

   ⋆ Cheris — a beautiful Queen who suffers through a loveless marriage to an abusive monarch.

   ⋆ Percius — Cheris’ champion, a man dedicated to protecting the Queen and her son

   ⋆ Janus — a two-faced traitor who can’t wait to send Persius to his doom.

Bloody battle scenes also add to the excitement of this imaginative fantasy epic, as do the exotic settings which form the backdrop for its thrilling action. 

Unfortunately, Hollywood usually takes a long time to make up its mind about which films to greenlight, so I hope you’ll buy Of Atlantis in its current book form. If you follow my advice, you’re in for a memorable journey back to the lost continent of Atlantis — plus a few more recent surprises.
