Editorial Reviews


Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite = 5 Stars 

I found the book scintillating 
Adventure~magic~whimsy~dreams~fantasy~ imagination, it's all there. 
Children of the current generation are totally into adventure and fantasy...Harry Potter and the like. 
These are stories that can actually awaken the creativity
...the right combination of fantasy and adventure. 

Iona is well depicted: her innocence, her adventures, her faith, and tragedies. 
The language is elegant and excellent. 
... these illustrations give you an idea of how each character looks as well as lending color to the story

Reviewed by Betty Dravis, October 12, 2013
Author of "1106 Grand Boulevard" (epic romantic thriller)
If this magical book were a movie--which it should be--I picture it on a colossal scale like "Lord of the Rings." If it were a painting, it would be like Paul Cezanne's "The Card Players" which sold for $259 million dollars, the most expensive painting ever sold to date. Hollywood, are you listening?

About the Author

Janet was born and raised in Ohio. She and her husband, Don, moved to Florida in the 1980′s to not only escape the cold winters, but to also pursue their careers as live event and production specialists. It was through their parent company, Multi-Tech Productions, Inc, that Janet's creativity was given free reign to soar. She was published in trade specific magazines, published non-fiction books, spoke at international conferences nationwide, and developed training classes pertaining to technical theater applications. When chronic illness stopped her in her tracks, it didn't stop her as a creative genius. Once she was back on her feet she took over the family gourmet dog treat business and expanded it by adding a full scale bakery to the already established "BARK"-ery. Again she collapsed, and again she didn't let it keep her down. Her creativity crested new horizons, and after putting herself through schooling at age 49 she became an epic fantasy author. She birthed JLB Creatives, a subsidiary of Multi-Tech Productions, Inc., which handles the publishing and authorship side of the business. Volume 1 - Maycly in her HIDDEN EARTH series was an eight year project brought to fruition by her determination, dedication, and zest for life! Janet and Don still reside in Florida. Janet is a dog lover who enjoys tandem kayaking, photographing nature, and baking cupcakes.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Epic Journey May 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The minute you pick up this book, be prepared to invest a lot of time in it. You'll read Part 1 and then scramble for Parts 2 and 3 because you simply have to know everything.

Iona's life is a reflection of what people are going through. There is hardship, sadness and a sense that all hope has died away. Any person in her situation will seek an escape and Iona does the same. She runs but realises only too soon that running away doesn't mean the problem is solved.

It is this desire to escape that allows her and the reader to step into a magical world so unique and so picturesque that you'll be glued to Janet's words and Iona's journey.

This is the kind of book that you'll want to keep for your children as they grow older. It has just the right balance of reality, fantasy and magic - everything that makes childhood a little more exciting.

Overall assessment:
Story: 5/5
Characters: 5/5
Editing: 4.5/5
Formatting: 4/5
Pacing: 5/5
Offensive content?: No. (G)

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful comibination of inspiration and fantasy February 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I am enthralled by this wonderful new world. Reminiscent of the character journeys of both Star Wars and Wizard of Oz, I am looking forward to the complete epic of Hidden Earth.

Maycly Part 1 is a fabulous beginning, arming the reader with the history of Maycly and introducing the reader to Iona. Iona has suffered some great tragedies, yet still manages to maintain a childlike innocence. She struggles with her faith and only truly begins her adventure when she opens her heart up to the Grand Wizard, SUL (a metaphorical reference to God).

While this book is only the beginning of Iona's story, it introduces us to an imaginative ensemble of characters and creatures. The stage is set for the classic battle of Good vs Evil.

Having had the opportunity to meet the author, it is easy to see her spirit captured in these pages. The author's personal story is a great inspiration and her passion fuels the world of Maycly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Maycly book review: I could not put the book down. March 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
An excellent read and well worth the money I spent on it. I could not put the book down, it was that good. What an adventure, wow! The characters were so well-written and the beautiful illustrations just brought everything to life. I would recommend this book to everyone, from a pre-teen to adult. This would be a great gift too. Anyone who loves to lose themselves in a good book should get this, as it was very entertaining, and a great mind-getaway. I just loved it, and you will too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Start March 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Here is an Epic start to the start of an Epic Series which continues the age old battle between good and evil. A charming book in which we meet our heroine in the depths of despair and follow her journey to find that which matters most- her family.Beset on all sides by the legions of evil, will she battle her way through? Well, you'll be desperate after this to get to books 2 and 3 to find out. Don't miss this opportunity to be one of the first to read what may become a classic tale for both adults and children. Ms.Beasley hasn't been mean with the fun moments too. and I won't spoil things by telling you.
