Exclusive Giveaway: $20 Amazon GC and Books 1 and 2 of Oracle series by C.W. Trisef

Oracle: Sunken Earth
Fall, current day, Atlantic Ocean. Another hurricane tears through the Bahamas, headed for Florida. Among the wreckage: a U.S. Coast Guard rescue boat, one survivor (Ret Cooper), and a spherical object of curious design (the Oracle).
Ret Cooper is a simple young man with mysterious origins, unique physical features, and no memory of his past. His new family and friends discover he is truly extraordinary, with supernatural powers and strange scars on the palms of his hands. But what is his destiny?
The Oracle is the key to Earth's unity and full potential, too perfect to be man-made. Legend claims it can unleash limitless power when filled with Mother Nature's six, pure, original elements. But where are these elements? And which of our planet's ancient secrets will be explained in the process of locating them?
The first book from new author C.W. Trisef will have you cheering for Ret as he travels a submerged road, discovers a lost city, climbs an electrifying mountain, and begins to unravel the mystery of the Oracle ... all during his first year of high school.
Oracle: Fire Island by C.W. Trisef
The adventure continues! With the first element (earth) painfully collected within the Oracle, Ret Cooper and his friends return home to find that things are only heating up. Thanks to some mischief caused by the peculiar Benjamin Coy, Ret’s second scar makes its explosive debut. But what does it mean, and where will it take them? These questions gnaw at Ret as he begins his sophomore year at Tybee High.
With challenging twists, inspired turns, and a few unexpected surprises, our hero once again confronts danger and disaster, while discovering newfound feelings for a certain female companion. Old friends and foes, along with a few new ones, follow Ret as more of our world’s mysteries lead him to Fire Island and the second element (fire). Ancient artifacts, a hot-air balloon, lines in the desert, a city in the mountains, tribal societies, and even the navel of the world all play their parts in Ret’s continued quest to fill the Oracle.
This second installment in the Oracle series is a must read, full of fun, adventure, and wholesome purpose. Hang on tight as author C.W. Trisef takes you to places and predicaments you have never seen before or even imagined, and makes you feel like you are a part of Ret’s destiny, to cure the world.

And coming April 2013
River of Ore
Two elements collected (earth and fire). Will the pain from Sunken Earth ever subside? Will the smoke rising from Fire Island ever disperse? Will Ret, Ana, and Paige ever complete their sophomore year? No, not yet! A third scar has appeared, pointing them to a place where Mr. Coy refuses to go. Fortunately for him, a fourth scar surfaces, one that takes them to the Amazon Rainforest, the Sahara Desert, and ultimately the City of Gold.
We follow our heroes across sea and sand—along rivers wet and dry—on a journey that spans multiple continents as they seek out the hiding place of the third element (ore). Organized or vigilante, trouble finds them at every turn in lands where deadly curses abound. Somewhere, between golden arches and ancient ruins, an age-old secret is waiting to be uncovered.
But Ret’s enemies are multiplying, a grim reality that will try the hearts of his friends. And even while some romances bloom and others fade, Ret and the gang must stay on guard. The Oracle is wasting no time now, clearly hastening the gathering of its elements. Things are in full motion; Ret feels this. So does Lye; he is ready—and waiting.

interview with Blkosiner's Book Blog

* What inspired you to write this series?
I have always been fascinated by our planet’s ancient secrets, so that was certainly the genesis for the series. The world mysteries in book 1 are the Bermuda Triangle, the Lost City of Atlantis, and the Bimini Road. The world mysteries in book 2 are the Nazca Lines, Machu Picchu, and Easter Island. My website ( explains each world mystery in greater detail. I like to think that the Oracle series is an impressive blend of fact and fiction, based on real places and substantiated theories. I believe that a great story not only entertains but also educates, thus the unique writing style.

* Do you have a favorite scene in each book so far?
Actually, I have so many favorite scenes, I'm not sure I could pick just one (sorry). For example, in book 1, Ret (the main character) discovers a submerged road at the bottom of the ocean, then discovers a lost city, then climbs an electrifying mountain beneath the bottom of the ocean within that lost city. And then, book 2 gets even better. Ret and his friends discover ancient artifacts, ride a super-powered hot-air balloon to the navel of the world, see truly amazing lines in the desert, find a city in the mountains, help tribal societies, and much more! And if you think those scenes are breathtaking, just wait for book 3, which will be available in the next month or so ...  

* Share something personal!! What sort of traveling do you like to do? How did you get into snorkeling?
I have actually only been snorkeling once in my entire life, and I did so as research for book 1. You see, I am committed to maintaining a well-informed imagination. In April 2011, I traveled to the island of Bimini in the Bahamas, braved the Bermuda Triangle, and scuba dove the site of the actual Bimini Road for myself (see pictures on my website). After the trip, I even adjusted portions of the manuscript to be more consistent with what I observed. So, in the end, I try to make my product a compelling blend of reality and fantasy that is almost believable.
