Our guild is proud of our first anthology about kids at summer camp!

Press Release: Renegade Writers Guild announces the publication of a children’s anthology book titled The Magic Horses of Crystal Creek Camp, set in Currituck County, North Carolina to benefit the Davie County Public Library in Mocksville, North Carolina. Through donation of proceeds from the sale of the book, the Renegade Writers Guild demonstrates a shared commitment to support reading initiatives for children.

The reading initiative is part of the Guild’s book project, which focuses on opening new worlds for young readers while promoting a philosophy of giving back to community.

“Renegade Writers Guild is committed to bringing simple truths to life through the writing of powerful, colorful stories that grab hold of a child’s imagination and transport them to magical worlds of wonder. Isn’t that what we all loved most about reading when we were young?” said Stephanie Williams Dean. “I applaud the Guild for the interest and effort they put forth in writing stories for the book. The book will benefit our community.”

“It has been a pleasure to work with a group of talented writers. This book is the culmination of much creative aspiration—a lot of heart and soul has gone into every story,” said N.R. Tucker who designed the book cover.

Publication of the book is the final product of eight creative writers who wrote nine stories, one poem, twenty-one illustrations, and designed a stunning cover. The book is available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle.

Synopsis: Campers attending Crystal Creek Camp wonder what to expect when rumors circulate that camp owners offer unusual camp activities along with a stable of gifted horses. From the day they arrive, campers are greeted with a palpable sense of eeriness as each day begins with adventure, and strange events begin to unfold. Throughout their stay, campers spend the long hot days of summer creating herbal teas and searching for rocks and gems while making new friends and lasting memories. Of course, there’s horseback riding, and the horses of Crystal Creek Camp are magical.

Young love, friendship, and fun flourish over summer as campers bond with one another and their horses. Soon, campers discover secrets that are revealed through a series of events that portray the mystical nature of each horse.

Does a dragon live in the camp, conjured by an aging horse? Is there a creepy ghost haunting the riding ring? Can horses fly? Are wicked spirits in the woods, waiting for unsuspecting campers to step off the marked trails? How do unsuspecting campers respond when their horse speaks aloud for the first time? Will the lost magical horses ever be found?

Join the campers for a magical summer to remember on the North Carolina Coast.
