armor of god: belt of truth
Welcome to The Armor of God: Belt of Truth Scavenger Hunt!
The hunt BEGINS at 8:00 am, April 23, on the Feast Day of St. George!
I am hosting this scavenger hunt to celebrate my new release: Belt of Truth, book #1 in the Armor of God fantasy-adventure children's chapter book series.
This hunt will introduce you to Catholic children's authors Susan Peek, Martina Parnelli, Karen Kelly Boyce, Virginia Lieto, Aleesa McCarthy, Jean Schoonover-Egolf, and Amy Cattapan.
There are going to be PRIZES GALORE and lots of excitement, so you don't want to miss out! You will have 3 days to work your way through all 8 stops, entering for PRIZES along the way and gathering CLUES at each stop for a chance to win the GRAND PRIZE at the last stop.
Be sure to collect the CLUES through all 8 stops in order, so you can enter to win the GRAND PRIZE!
Each stop will lead you to the next stop.
There is NO RUSH to complete the hunt. You have 3 days (until Thursday, April 25, at midnight EST).
As you move through the scavenger hunt stops, take your time getting to know these authors and their Catholic children’s books. They might have just what you want for First Holy Communion, Baptism, or birthday gifts. You might even want to keep them in mind for Christmas shopping! You know there are less than 245 days until Christmas!
We strongly believe in the power of fiction in the life of faith, for readers of every age! And we hope that you discover new authors and new Catholic children’s books that your children, friends, and relatives will enjoy.
Submit your entry for the GRAND PRIZE by collecting the CLUE on each author’s scavenger hunt post and submitting your answer in the form at Stop #7. Many authors are offering additional prizes along the way!
Note: winners outside the continental US will receive an ebook of Belt of Truth in place of paperback prizes (due to shipping costs). If the Grand Prize winner is outside the US, they may choose ebook substitutions from among all my books.
Thanks for participating and I hope you have fun!
Stop #1 is at Susan Peek’s author website.
Susan Peek’s tales of heroism bring forgotten saints to life!
Today she has a very special saint to tell you about.
Belt of Truth
Book 1 in the fantasy-adventure Armor of God children's chapter book series
George Pennington wants to be a knight!
He bravely faces the fearsome head knight at the annual “tryouts,” hoping to be among the few accepted to Knight School for Boys and Girls.
When he accidentally burns his mother’s cherished tapestry, is his chance at Knight School over? A lie seems like the best solution. As lying becomes easier for George, he discovers that students must earn the first piece of armor: The Belt of Truth.
“Therefore, put on the armor of God,
that you may be able to resist on the evil day and,
having done everything, to hold your ground.
So stand fast with your loins girded in truth,
clothed with righteousness as a breastplate,
and your feet shod in readiness for the gospel of peace.
In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield,
to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
And take the helmet of salvation and the
sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
~ Ephesians 6:13-17
Based on the Scriptural Armor of God (Ephesians 6:13-17), the six-book ARMOR OF GOD fantasy-adventure series appeals to the universal and timeless quest for virtue and inner strength. The story themes and “Brother Coll’s Catechism Lessons,” weaved into each story, are perfect for children preparing for or who have recently made their First Confession and First Holy Communion.
Book 1 comes out April 23, the Feast of St. George. Book 2 comes out in the summer. And each following book comes out in the seasons ahead.
