About this project

About 'Galapagos Kingdom and the Green Medallion'

"One kingdom... Two heirs... A volcanic adventure.

When Laila finds a half-turtle medallion in the beach, she thinks is the discovery of a new childish adventure. But, when the medallion saves Caleb's life, she soon realizes she has stumbled upon a legacy older than the Kingdom itself.

Overnight, their simple life is shattered, and they are thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic, and power. Can Laila and Caleb become full dragons? The fate of the kingdom may rest in their hands..."

The Galapagos Kingdom and the Green Medallion is the first book of the 4 novel series 'Galapagos Kingdom'.

It is about a 14-year-old girl named Laila who has a heart of an adventurous. And, as soon as she finds the green medallion, she rushes towards her twin brother Caleb who does not like taking risks. 

Together, they embark in a journey to save the Kingdom from an obscure and evil king/sorcerer. But on their way, they encounter many obstacles in which they learn the bond of family and friendship, what it is to be loyal, and what self-sacrifices one must do for the greater good. They learn the value of patience and perseverance; they self-growth and learn that by working as a team can overcome anything.

Risks and challenges

As with any creative project, there will be challenges along the way, but I will work through each one diligently. 
The editor may take over a month to go through 'Galapagos Kingdom' due its length. After I receive the suggestions, I have to go through the novel myself and make final changes.

There is one thing I can promise – At the end of this project, you will have a well written novel.
