Book Bites for Kids, hosted by Suzanne Lieurance is a delightful way to interact with children's book authors, illustrators, publishers, editors, and publicists to learn more about the world of children’s writing and publishing.

We are pleased to invite you to tune in at Book Bites for Kids to meet children’s author, Billie A. Williams as she discusses her new YA novel, Watch for the Raven on Friday, February 17 at 2 pm CST.

About Watch for the Raven: Fifteen year old Josh Avery has heard the horror stories about what Indians do to white people. Hurt, delirious he finds himself on a travois being transported across the Colorado Mountains of 1853 by Eagleman, he fears the worst. This young adult novel explores the consequences of a young man's anger at parental rules.

What People are saying about the Book: I found this high stress adventure exciting. Josh is transformed from a thoughtless adolescent into the high expectations of manhood. This tale carries a meaningful moral message for maturing youngsters. I would highly recommend it, not just for growing boys, but adventurous girls as well.—JoEllen Conger, Queen of Candlore, Rite of Passage, and Return of the Goddess

“Make sure you have time to finish this book in one reading because you will be compelled to turn another page to see what happens next. This book is targeted for the young adult audience but ‘old’ adults will love it as well. Give this book as a present to anyone interested in a rousing mountain adventure, but after you read it yourself. The only thing disappointing will be when you come to the last page and find out it is the last page.” —Mystery Author J D Webb
