. . . by a young author of my acquaintance:
Riversong: Path to Paradise
It's also available in paperback.
If you are a fan of anthropomorphic fiction, quest or "road" stories, allegory, or themes of love, friendship and sacrifice, this novella is worth your consideration. Suitable for age 10 & up, with polished, mature writing of the highest quality.
And if you're interested, I think I can arrange for an autograph.
