The Amazing Adventures of Toby the Trilby GIVEAWAY

Local Bastrop County author, Angela Castillo, has published a new book titled The Amazing Adventures of Toby the Trilby, which releases for purchase on Nov. 1st. I was able to sit down with the author, and here's what she had to say...

When asked about her book, Angela Castillo said, "My favorite memories from childhood mostly involve my nine-member family. One of the greatest gifts my mother gave to us kids was a love for reading. When I was 5 years old, she pulled out The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis and began to read aloud to the family. This was the beginning of many adventures my family went on together through hundreds of books, all brought into our living room by my mother’s gentle, expressive voice."

She continues, "When I came up with idea for my book, The Amazing Adventures of Toby the Trilby, I wanted to create a story for families to read together. A book filled with exciting adventures for children that could also convey messages of faith and truth for adults to appreciate and maybe discuss with the group."

The story is about Toby, a twelve year old who has lived in a shelter underground with his six scientist creators who accidentally gave him cat ears and a tail. Toby must embark on an exciting quest of courage and hope while he searches for answers. Was there a Great Disaster? Did anyone survive? And the most important question of all: Does he have a soul?

The Amazing Adventures of Toby the Trilby is a 90 page, Christian Sci-Fi/Fantasy novella. It's available at Amazon.com in paperback for $7.99 and eBook Kindle editions for $3.99. You can also purchase the book directly from the author here for a presale price of only $6.99.
