Critically Acclaimed YA Novel 'Rise' on Track for Crowd-Funded Publishing Contract with Inkshares
Author Luis Almonte kicks off crowd-funding campaign for the 2nd edition of his contemporary young adult fantasy novel 'Rise', with plans to donate 10% of net profits to the national suicide prevention & awareness organization, The Trevor Project.
The first edition of Almonte's fantasy tale of witchcraft and vampires received top marks from Young Adult Books Central and OnlineBookClub.org, and was favorably reviewed online at Publishers Weekly. Action packed and full of suspense, Rise introduces 15-year-old Alexia Wick, a seemingly typical high school sophomore with a not-so-typical life—she and her family are witches. Casting spells and practicing magic after school and on weekends, Alexia must navigate the pressures of high school while she prepares to compete with the most talented young witches from across the country at the Annual Trials. When Alexia meets a new male student named Kaleb, a romance begins and Kaleb's own dark secrets unleash an immense supernatural power struggle with potentially dire consequences for all.

In keeping with the message of his book, Almonte will be donating 10% of net profits to The Trevor Project, a national suicide prevention and awareness organization.
With an international social media following of over 19,000, Rise (the first book in Almonte's Trifecta Series) will appeal to fans of Harry Potter and Twilight, and to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced suspenseful story of supernatural powers and teenage angst. "People from all ages will gravitate towards this book because at its core," says Almonte, "it speaks to the personal strength, courage and perseverance that lies within us all."
