Arizona Author to Celebrate New Book Launch March 29th; New Fantasy Novel Offers Twist on Hero’s Journey

Mesa, AZ, March 17, 2012 --( Brick Cave Books, the publishing imprint of Brick Cave Media, is proud to announce the release of The Healer’s Legacy, a fantasy novel by author Sharon Skinner, on March 29th, 2012. In celebration of the new book, a launch part will be held at Lo Fi Coffee, 105 W Main St., Mesa, AZ at 7pm on Thursday, March 29th. The event is free and open to the public, features Sharon and has music provided by The Klute.

Copies of the book are available now for pre-order, and will be delivered at the event. Limited extra copies will be available at the event, and Brick Cave Books encourages pre-orders.

Says author Sharon Skinner, “I am excited that this book is finally getting to see the light of day. I hope that everyone shares the sense of excitement for the story and the characters that I had in writing it.”

Says Brick Cave Books Publisher Bob Nelson, “When we started Brick Cave Books, we knew we wanted a couple of authors, and Sharon was one of them. This book easily could have been picked up by a larger publishing house, but our strong author focused business model really gave us an opening that we were able to take advantage of. Publishing this book is really a coup for us.”

Sharon Skinner's debut novel is a spectacular Hero's Journey from a new perspective, that of her protagonist Kira.

Orphaned by war, haunted by unknown origins, and chased by a warlord and his army of brutal soldiers.
KIRA is a young woman with a secret. She can psychically communicate with animals. She is also on the run from her abusive mate Toril, the hero turned warlord, who led the country’s forces to victory against the outland raiders. Only that was before his love of power consumed him. Now, his only focus is on tracking down Kira and making her punishment an example of his power.
But the quest for freedom isn’t the only struggle Kira faces. She must also come to terms with her past choices, whose echoes drive her present. And now, the future of the land and people she has come to love depends on the decisions she will be forced to make.

Orders can be placed at and a three chapter sample is also available.
