While on vacation, my 11 year old daughter quietly sat on the beach with her feet in the water. She later told me "The ocean talks to me. Her name is "Aquariana". She says that she will come to me in my dreams and take me on journeys to show me how we are destroying her children. Mom, you must help me write a book." My daughter began dreaming and creating and I began researching and writing "Aquariana". "Aquariana" comes to Saphira in her dreams, taking her on journeys, showing her how we are destroying her children. When these dreams begin to cross over into reality, Saphira must navigate her way through this maze of dreams to save the sharks and King Dakos. Then she must find her way back to reality to save herself. This story will open your eyes as it has mine, to the atrocities being inflicted upon our sea creatures. All while making you fall in love with a unique variety of real and mythological creatures and taking you on a mystical, magical and heartbreaking journey. As you know, it is very difficult to get a story published thru a traditional publisher. I would like to self-publish but it costs money to do that. Being a single working mother, I just don't have the extra income. The book is complete and has been edited. I have registered it with the Writers Guild of America and had it copywritten. I intend to self-publish and promote this story as well as convert it to a screenplay. I am told by my editor that it will make an incredible movie script that he will help to promote. Thank you so very much for supporting this incredible project and please know that once published and promoted, I will be donating a part of the profits from "Aquariana's" sales to a variety of Non-Profit Ocean Conservancy Programs.
