Bladensburg, MD, June 26, 2014 – Stories containing
kings, queens, princesses, princes, centaurs, and various otherworldly
creatures are nothing new for the speculative fiction genre. However,
Boonville author Ashlee Willis
was determined to add a special spin to her story that has already
captured the hearts and imaginations of fantasy readers across the
Inspired by C.S. Lewis and his Narnia series, Ashlee Willis always had a desire to climb inside the books that she read and become a character. So, she wrote a novel in which the main character does just that. The Word Changers (326 pp, $13.95), Willis’ first published work, takes the reader on a journey with a distressed teenage girl who opens a strange book in the library, and suddenly finds herself magically drawn inside of the story, inadvertently becoming one of the characters. Now she must fight to free herself from a Plot that has been usurped by an evil king, who will do anything to maintain his grasp on the Plot and the characters that are a part of it. Preliminary reviews for the book have been very positive, with many readers praising the uniqueness of the story, the unpredictability of the characters, the relentless pace, and the allegorical truth in which the Author of the story is a key figure. Fantasy author Anne Elisabeth Stengl says, “I have had the opportunity to read some of Ashlee's work, and I was immediately impressed by her beautiful combination of elegant writing with fascinating storytelling.”
The Word Changers was released on June 23 and is currently available in eBook and paperback at Amazon.com and other online outlets.
