Local High School Student Launches Book, Power of the Swords

Uintah High School student, seventeen-year-old Spencer Day, has many talents and hobbies, writing just happens to be one of them. Years of creative work and drafting culminated on Saturday during the book launch party at the Uintah County Library of his new book Power of the Swords. The book is a young adult fantasy adventure about a teen Robert Soulman who gets caught up in a magical adventure aimed at saving three worlds from destruction. Spencer’s writing process began about 6 years ago. “I started writing a story of my own after enjoying reading other people’s stories,” shares Spencer. After sending his book to several publishers, Spencer discovered self publishing and found, what he says, “was the better track for me.” The company, Book Venture, took Spencer through the publishing process and now the book is available to order through www.bookventure.com, on Amazon, or Barnes and Noble. Based on the line of people getting their own copies signed at Saturday’s book launch, the future looks bright for Spencer and his book, Power of the Swords
