Free young adult fantasy book / metaphysical fiction / magical realism / Buddhist fiction.
This free young adult fantasy book is also metaphysical fiction because of its emphasis on using meditation techniques to defeat demons, and it's also magical realism because the fantasy is all an analogy or metaphor for reality. The demons are your negative emotions, and the journey Ariel takes to the top of the Diamond Peak through the four books of the Diamond Peak series is the journey to enlightenment. It's also Buddhist fiction, because the main characters have a Buddhist world view. So if you like the idea of Twilight or the Mortal Instrument series but with a touch of something spiritual, this series is for you, and you can start off with the first book for free by signing up to my newsletter. I won't inundate you with emails and you can unsubscribe at any time.

Don’t miss this moving short story about facing death: It’s FREE until the end of the month
A lovely, surprising tale, told with warmth and depth, this surreal short story switches between an ancient world and our modern one. Is the main character an unwilling sacrifice to foreign gods, or a modern woman battling deadly cancer? Who is dreaming who? Through juxtaposing seemingly different life experiences, we find a poignant commonality between the characters as they face death. FREE until the end of the month. Download it now on Amazon And don't forget to write a review . What readers are saying. 'Not Me, it Can't Be' is far more haunting than any short story should be. As in much of Newland's work, the lines between fantasy and reality are blurred to the extent where the reader is left wondering which is the imagined and which is the real world. The juxtaposition of the two women's situations raises big questions which are delicately crafted so they linger in the mind long after reading. I love a haunting story though and this one is beautiful." Rose, Goodreads … [Read more...]
