Dallas, Tex. (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
Author and leadership coach Scotty Sanders announces the endorsement of his new fantasy fiction book "Quest of the Keys" by author Richard Paul Evans. Evans is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of "The Christmas Box" and "Michael Vey" with four books having been produced as television movies. Evans says of Sanders’ September 1 release, “Like a work from Og Mandino, this is a well-told story that pushes the limits of what one usually expects of a fantasy fiction novel.” Scotty Sanders, author of "Quest of the Keys" states, “We approached Richard Paul Evans for an endorsement because of his passion for writing entertaining stories with strong moral values”. Like Evans' Michael Vey series, Sanders' forthcoming book also falls into the young adult fiction and fantasy fiction genres.
Another noteworthy endorsement for "Quest of the Keys" (QOTK) is actress Jenn Gotzon, an award winning film actress (Frost/Nixon, Doonby) who says, “Scotty Sanders is a wonderful writer and Quest of the Keys is a great resource for so many, young and old, to grapple with the meaning of life and what it means to be successful and live life with passion and purpose.”
QOTK has also been endorsed by Chuck Cook, CEO Responsive Education Solutions, a tuition-free, Texas charter school system. "Quest of the Keys quickly draws the reader into an exciting, realistic, and absorbing storyline. It creatively addresses two of life’s often asked questions. One, what is my real purpose in life? And two, if I find that purpose, will I be willing to commit to it? Be ready for an enjoyable experience." says Cook.
Sanders’ book, set to release September 1, 2012, conveys personal development principles for young adults through the story of a young man, Decklen, who left home in disgrace only to narrowly escape slavery and death in the Minca Silver Mines. Sworn to return for those he left behind and joined by an unlikely sojourner, the feisty 10-year-old Camberly, he sets out for the majestic realm of Leonesse. Returning to his hometown defeated, penniless and desperate, Decklen resolves to seek help from the only man strong enough to provide it--the elder of Leonesse. But rather than swords and strategy, Decklen is presented with an invitation to begin a quest to unlock eight scrolls and learn the secrets therein while the fate of an entire kingdom rests in his hands.
As Sanders’ sophomore release, QOTK follows up the successful release of "ONE Focus Living." For more information on QOTK, visit QuestOfTheKeys.com. There is also a Facebook fan page for the book at Facebook.com/QuestOfTheKeys.
