Catholic Teen Fiction receives the Catholic Writers Guild “Seal of Approval”

Standard

I want readers and bookstore owners to be assured of the quality and content of all my books, so I submit them to the Catholic Writers Guild for review. I am excited to announce that the final book in the Chasing Liberty trilogy has received the Seal of Approval!

Fight for Liberty by Theresa Linden

Final book in the Chasing Liberty dystopian trilogy

Liberty has gained a deeper understanding of true freedom, but having it for herself is not enough.

Prompted by the inner voice that has guided her for years, Liberty is compelled to bring the freedom she possesses to others in Aldonia. While unsure of how to carry out this mission, she is willing to risk all to accomplish it. Threats from outside the Boundary Fence and threats closer to home cause chaos and confusion that have everyone unsure of what direction to take. Troubled by Liberty’s risky choices, Dedrick wishes he could convince her to leave for the colonies. But Liberty has chosen Aldonia over him. When faith, family, and freedom have been squashed, what can one person or even a group do to reclaim the culture?

Fight for Liberty and the entire Chasing Liberty trilogy has great themes that are so relevant to today. I would love to see this trilogy to reach more people.

Be sure to visit the Book Clubs page on my author website for the free digital discussion/study guide. Consider adding this book to your 11th- and 12th-grader’s curriculum.


Two other CatholicTeenBooks.com books have received the Seal of Approval too! I’ve read them both and highly recommend them:

The Siege of Reginald Hill by Corinna Turner

A spinoff from the I Am Margaret series

SAFETY IS NOT THE ABSENCE OF DANGER, BUT THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

Fr Kyle Verrall is living a quiet life as a parish priest in Africa when he’s snatched from his church one night by armed assailants. He’s in big trouble—his sister’s worst enemy is hell-bent on taking revenge on the famous Margaret Verrall by killing her brother, just as slowly and horribly as he can. What could possibly save him? The humble young priest is defenceless—or so Reginald Hill believes. But Kyle has a powerful weapon Hill knows nothing about. And he’s not afraid to use it.

Is Reginald Hill really the hunter? Or is he the hunted?


Guarding Aaron by T. M. Gaouette

Faith & Kung Fu – Book 3

When the struggles of the world and his devotion collide, he must choose between his own desires and the will of God.

The world continues to press in on Gabriel Livingstone’s quiet life when fifteen-year-old Aaron Buckley enters Yeung’s Martial Arts Studio looking to learn kung-fu. Gabriel knows there’s a desperate secret behind the boy’s bruises, and secretly vows to be his guard, with the help of his friend Christian.  But when Tanner Rose pressures him for strength and direction, and Faith’s continued rebellion send him and his friends to the hospital, jeopardizing Tanner’s career, Gabriel is forced to reexamine his decisions. Is he called to the priesthood or is life behind the monastery walls merely an escape?

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” (Ephesians 6:10-11 RSVCE)

But they also provide a service to bookstores and readers!
