    Hi Kelsey and Alexa, my name is Noah and I’m an author from Canada currently sending out some advance copies of my novel “My Promise” to reviewers. If you are interested in a copy and can gladly send you one. If you would like to view my media package I can email it to you.

    Here is the synopsis: On the outside, Grace Kelly’s life waiting tables in Philadelphia seemed pretty ordinary. If only she knew the truth. Following a painful breakup, a bizarre series of events involving a cryptic code lead her to move to an island on the West Coast of Canada where she is selected for an experimental course inside a castle.
    Taught by a nameless professor, no one seems to know what the class is about and Grace’s curiosity pushes her to find answers. Attempting to uncover the purpose of the course, Grace finds herself caught up in a journey to unlock an ancient mystery. Little does she know that this mystery has more to do with her than she ever imagined.
    Like no story you have read before, each chapter of My Promise is written to a piece of music. This allows readers to immerse themselves within the emotion of the narrative. Will you find and decipher the codes hidden within the pages? Will the mystery make sense in the end? There’s only one way to find out…

    There are also some distinctly Christian themes in the book which may interest Alexa, being a “Christian fan-girl.” Anyway, hope to hear from you.
    Noah Bolinder

      Hey, there! Thanks so much for getting in contact. I love the sound of a mystery set to music, but I only evaluate review requests via email. Just makes it easier that way. 🙂 Please email us at verbositybookreviews(at)yahoo(dot)com, and we’ll get the process going. 🙂
