Progressive Rising Phoenix Press announces the release of SPOKES, a novel by Deanna K. Klingel




Progressive Rising Phoenix Press has released Deanna K. Klingel's YA novel, Spokes. Spokes is about  a Catholic girl and a Jewish boy training for a triathlon, who search for clues to solve the mystery of a hit and run killer. Along the way they discover the importance of truth, friendship, and faith. 

Klingel writes primarily, not exclusively, for young adult readers. She has thirteen books published and others in the que. In addition, one of the picture books is also in Spanish, and there are teacher/classroom study guides for two historical fictions. Many of the books have received recognition and awards. Two of her short stories were contest winners. She's a member of SCBWI, ACFW, Catholic Writers Guild, and NCWN. She blogs twice a week at booksbydeanna.com, and travels with her books across the South and beyond, appearing at schools, museums, and events. Her books are widely distributed and are available wherever books are sold.

Klingel is a member of North Carolina Writer's Network-West. She will be hosting a workshop at the NCWN-West's A Day for Writers, at Sylva, NC, on May 6, 2017. Ms. Klingel's topic will be: "The Merry Go Round of Children's Literature". She will discuss how to recognize the types of children's literature, the myths about writing for children, and the writing process for Child Lit and how it differs for each kind of Child Lit. She will also cover working with illustrators and finding the proper publisher for your work. Klingel will go over questions to ask your publisher before signing the contract , and will address how to market Child Lit.

Quest for Publication

Beginning novelists looking to get published, I recommend you follow Pat Meese Davis' blog, http://novelistapproach.blogspot.com/ as she takes the steps you will need to make on your quest for publication. Pat's blog is new, only three posts so far, but that is why I think it is time to start following Pat who is looking for an agent for her Young Adult novel. Comment on your trials and errors in finding an agent. Your remarks may help others.

Pat is a native of Brevard, NC who lives in Pennsylvania where she has earned her PhD. She is a writer who has spent all her time writing, and is now ready to take the next steps.

Comment on your thoughts about what Pat is doing to get her book out there.
