Creativity is a magical thing, and no one has proven this to me more than my cousin, Matthew Schilling, with his debut book, The Magic Quest.
Matt is a young adult with autism and a seizure disorder, but he doesn’t let that get in the way of his creative expression. He loves telling jokes and performing in plays, and now has realized a long-term dream of becoming a published author with the help of his tutor, Nancy Barth. I have been fortunate to help with the indie publishing process, from editing to project management. It is nothing less than magical to see this book out in the world.
The Magic Quest tells the tale of a young man who must stop the Evil Wizard from getting his hands on a certain spell book and thus destroying the world. Magic spells, people-turned-animals-turned-people, detestable bad guys, humor, suspense; this book has it all and more. It is not only a gripping story, but a window into the mind of someone with autism. Ten Percent of the proceeds from the sale of this book are to be donated to the Easter Seals Central California Autism Intervention Program.
I am thrilled to announce that The Magic Quest eBook can now be purchased from the following e-tailers:
It will soon be available at Copia, eBook pie, and Gardener’s (for the UK). A paperback version is in the works as well To be sure you get the news, sign up for updates here.
