Book 1: The Wish 100


Synopsis

Fifteen years ago Jack’s father, Tom, narrowly escaped an ancient evil’s hunt for his soul, which houses the gift of knowledge. After years of searching for Tom’s soul, this evil has turned his sights on Jack. Fleeing for his life, fifteen year old Jack enters a magical world in search of a sanctuary inhabited by a powerful group of Wizards. Prophesied as the Son of the Gift Keeper, Jack is named as the rightful bearer to deliver the sacred four-leaf clover to the wizards. Unbeknownst to Jack, he is to fulfill the quests of the sacred clover, carrying out the clovers acts of faith, hope, luck and love, ultimately defeating this evil. In a race against time, Jack must fulfill the clovers first act and get to the sanctuary before this evil finds him. But does Jack have enough faith in himself to defeat the evil that’s in search of him? The fate of two worlds rests on the shoulders of an ordinary boy with an extraordinary secret.

    Hello! My name is Autumn and you came to my school the other day. Anywho, I am that one seventh grader who came up to you and asked if you knew my Mom. I was wearing a skirt and knee high socks if you need to picture me. I took this quiz and I got into the Gift Keeper Clan. This quiz was fun and I hope to read your series soon.

    • Autumn

      Additionally, the description is pretty much spot on about me. Thank’s for all the great things you told us about being an author. I like to write stories and my sister likes to illustrate them.

    • E.V. Jones Post author

      Wow, another Giftkeeper! That is SO awesome! Thanks so much for coming up to me and talking with me after my presentation. And yes, I do remember you. Hoping you get a chance to pick up The Wish and read it. If you could give me feedback as well, I’d really appreciate it. Please continue to follow me and on my blog or instagram and Twitter. Lots of fun things to talk about! Have a great week!

    • E.V. Jones Post author

      Hey Bryce! A Giftkeeper?! You are one of the very first to quiz into that! THAT is SO COOL! I think only one other person (that I know of)is a part of the Giftkeeper’s Clan! I really do enjoy visiting the schools and talking with the students. If you get a chance, I’ll be signing books at the Geneva Commons on Friday evening June 10th at 7p. Stop by and say hi! Once you’re done with The Wish, I’d appreciate your opinion of it. I’m curious, (being that this is my debut novel) of what my readers think. Thanks! Hope you have a great summer and stay safe. Will hopefully be visiting the schools again next school year! Thanks for writing and please follow along on my blog as well as I give updates to my whereabouts, The Wish and book number 2 in my series of Cloverleaf Chronicles.

      Hey Anthony! Thanks so much for writing! I love coming to Mooseheart and am looking forward to future visits! Let me know what you think of The Wish after you’re done reading it!

    • E.V. Jones Post author

      Hi Khadijah! Thanks so much for sending me a note on your quiz! Please stay in touch and let me know how you like the book. I’m asking all my readers if they could take a few minutes after they are done reading The Wish, and go on Amazon or GoodReads to place a review. Reviews are a HUGE factor in determining whether a book is a success or a failure. Please continue to stay in touch and follow me on my weekly blogs so that you are kept up to date on the happenings of The Wish and Cloverleaf Chronicles Series! 🙂

    • E.V. Jones Post author

      Thanks so much Rowyn! Did you take the ‘Find Your Clan” quiz on book one page of my website? I’m interested in what clan my readers quiz into!Thanks so much for stopping by and for your feedback! If you get a chance, if you could post a review on amazon or goodreads, I’d really appreciate it! Reviews can be the number one factor determining if a book is a success or a failure. Thanks for stopping by and hoping to see more posts from you in the future!

    • E.V. Jones Post author

      If you’re talking about the quiz, you will understand when you read the book. The quiz is quite significant in its characters. If you’re at one of the schools i’m visiting, you can check the book out from your school library. I’ll be posting public venues where you can see me and purchase my book. OR you can always go into any bookstore and ask them to order it for you or get it online at any major retail site. Thanks so much for visiting!

    • E.V. Jones Post author

      That is SO cool! Same as me!! Does the description written on the certificate fit you? Thanks so much for visiting. Please continue to follow and get updates on where I’ll be next as well as information on Cloverleaf Chronicles Series!

    • E.V. Jones Post author

      Glad you liked it! keep in touch by continuing to visit my website and checking out my blog for updates on The Wish and its release

    • Yvonne Jones Post author

      Thanks Emma! There are a few surprises in the story,so I hope you enjoy! Hope to see you for another visit!

  • Anna M.

    This book is going to be great. What left me kinda hanging though is Sean’s soul should’ve came at night when Catherine was waiting. So, what really did happen to Sean? Also, what is with this boy named Jack? This prologue is quite interesting and leaves you on a lot of cliffhangers. Immediately once i read the prologue, I could not stop reading! If you are making a series of these books, then I bet they will be the new “Sisters of Grimm.”

    • Yvonne Jones Post author

      Thanks so much for your comment. All your questions will be answered in the book. Hope you continue to follow me on this very exciting journey and hoping to see you at one of my book signings. I appreciate your feedback and will definitely look into the Sisters of Grimm series! Thanks!

    • Yvonne Jones Post author

      Thanks so much Judy! Please continue to visit my blog to remain updated on how things are going up to the launch of my book.

  • Alena K.

    I really enjoyed reading the prologue and the first chapter from the web site and can’t wait for April now for the whole book to come out! Great start and congratulations, Yvonne!

  • Toni

    WOWEEE!!! Great GREAT CHapter!!!! I’m gonna need you to send me the rest of that story. Can’t wait for the book!! Where have you been hiding this book all these years?

    • Yvonne Jones Post author

      Thanks Toni! Unfortunately, I’m bound by contract to hold the story until release next year. But, please continue to follow me on my blogs. I will continue to give little nuggets of information on the story!

    • Yvonne Jones Post author

    Hi! Your husband Mr. Jones showed us your website a couple of days ago and I just came across it. I read the preview of book one and I instantly fell in love! Your book is so good and you have so much talent! Keep doing what you’re doing!

  • Annika C.

    Hello! I really like the overall look of this website… it is really easy to navigate and everything is so nicely organized. The preview that is given was really interesting. As I was reading it, I could feel the suspense building and that made me more and more curious about what happens. I especially enjoyed how some elements of the plot were left unclear. Looking forward to more about the books! 🙂

    • Yvonne Jones Post author

      Thank Annika!
      An interesting fact about the beginning of “The Wish”, is the first draft actually started differently. After several tries, I finally developed what is now the beginning of book one. I love hearing feedback and appreciate your taking the time to visit. If you could spread the word about my website along to your friends, I’d love to hear what others think as well. Please keep in touch and continue stop by for a visit to see what is happening with the activities leading up to the release of my first book.

  • kate warta

    Hi Mr. Jones! I really like your website. I think that it has a great look to it, that makes you want to explore it. One of my favorite parts, is how you made your son’s eyes really green, to enhance them, and go with the clovers on the main page. I also really like this story. I have never heard of it before, but now that I have read it, I think that it is a really good touch to the website. Good job Mr. Jones. I think it’s time for you to start learning the piano now!

    • Yvonne Jones Post author

      Hi Kate,
      Mr. Jones did do a nice job on my website, didn’t he? Hoping you will continue to visit and follow me upto (and beyond) the release of “The Wish”. I’m so happy to have new visitors to my site. Please come back for a visit. I have some exciting surprises in the next year leading up to the release of my book. thanks so much for your feedback on the website!

    • Yvonne Jones Post author
