Hello and welcome to my author blog!
So first off, I should introduce myself. My name is Riley Carney and I'm sixteen years old. I live in Colorado with my mom, dad, older brother, and our giant Bernese Mountain Dog, Ben. More than anything I love to read and write.
I wrote my first book, The Fire Stone, when I was fifteen. It took me about month to write the first draft and several months of editing followed. It's YA high-fantasy, for ages 11 and up most likely. It's currently available on my website rileycarney.com and is available for preorder on Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com, though that should change in the next week or two. The Fire Stone follows the journey of Matt, a fifteen-year-old living in the world of Mundaria. A series of strange occurrences befall Matt and he is thrust from his ordinary life into a life of magic, danger, and adventure as he joins many unusual beings on a quest for the Stones of the Elements which have either the power to save or destroy his world. The rest of the five-book Reign of the Elements series is complete.
Here's a picture of The Fire Stone cover:
I'm planning on using this blog to post news about my book and appearances/signings or anything else I feel like sharing. I'll try to post at least once a week, probably more often if I can. Feel free to comment and I promise I'll answer you to best of my ability.
Thanks for reading and stop by again soon!
