The Durra Durra Saga by J.A.Wells

Thurlow Book One of the Durra Durra Saga

For those of you have been following along with me and my journey with the manuscripts of J.A.Wells’ work, you will know that I believe he is a tremendous storyteller. I’ve been closely associated with his work, assisting with proof reading, a little mentoring, designing book covers, and eventually I will be joining in the process of John self publishing and promoting his work. My close association with John and my technical assistance are anchored in my admiration for John’s work, both his writing, his art and most importantly his creative energy. I have so much “serious” fun contributing my technical and administrative skills to his process. Maybe one day, if all goes well, his work will be discovered by many many readers and eventually will become a best seller. The Durra Durra Saga is his second manuscript, the first being The Merry Millionaire, two others are near completion. After the editing process is complete, the world will be introduced to a new voice in the literary world. J.A.Wells’ journey is one that the Artuccino Team, that is, John Challenor and I, Diane Challenor, feel privileged to be part of. Here’s a little blurb of J.A.Wells’ intriguing two part saga, full of mystery and adventure, The Durra Durra Saga: Book one – Intrigue and Injustice and book two – Insurgence and Inheritance:

The Captain is a very rich English gentleman, whose lifestyle could be looked upon today with a critical eye, in light of our society’s courageous attempt to protect the young.
