Press Release: Local NEPA Author launches Debut Fantasy Novel

Mountain Top, Pennsylvania


Today, debut author, Lindsay Baldassano, announced her upcoming novel “The Chronicles of the Hymns: Book One The Quest for the Amyx Amulet” will launch on, a subsidiary of as soon as possible. Lindsay, a graduate of Mansfield University of Pennsylvania, has been working on her first novel for about year. With the last edits in process and the cover art delivered, Lindsay says, “Everything about this experience, personally, was scary! I knew I had a story, I have many stories to tell. But none of it became real to me till I started getting help from others for editing and getting the art portions of the book finished up. It’s been a long journey to get to this place, and I only hope my readers love the story!”

Her inspiration for her story came from the characters themselves, Lindsay says. They had to make the choices and the events of the story were dictated by who they were and who they were striving to be. The Quest for Amyx Amulet is a fantasy novel, but like many good stories, contains arcs from other genres, like romance, satire, and steampunk urban fantasy. “I hope to break a few genre barriers with this book and it’s characters.”

Having lived in the coal mining region that NEPA is, Lindsay wanted to show the consequences of land depletion and abuse on the people who live there.

The book launch will take place online. Lindsay plans to have author appearances at conventions, fairs, festivals, and bookstores in the upcoming year.

Lindsay is available for interviews, book signings, and other promotional events. She is also happy to talk to classes, reading and writing groups locally or over skype. You can contact her directly, by email:
