Arlene Lagos Author Website

Hello to all of my wonderful friends and fans!

Thank you so much for following me on this blog!  When I first started this blog, I never imagined that I would write more than one book!

Now I have four books and fourteen short stories published and I’m about to release a new children’s novel in December, “Outside The Circle”!

In an effort to place all of my work on one website, I have created an Author site.

Please follow me at http://www.authorarlenelagos.wordpress.com

for updates on new releases and projects!

I also have a new facebook page:

Beyond Earth

****Customer Reviews 4.5 out of 5 stars****

“Beyond Earth is beyond fantastic!”

“I can’t wait to read book two and find out what happens next in Arlene Lagos’s Beyond Earth Series”

“I could not put the book down, it was thrilling, exciting, very easy to read. Highly recommend the purchase of this book”

“Beyond Earth is engaging from the first page, then hard to put down! The storyline is clear and most creative; characters come off as real and appealing right away. The way issues of relationships and sex are woven into the story is particularly good…like seeing them through the eyes and feelings of the characters, and presented in a mature and thoughtful way. This book is entirely appropriate for for the young adult market, and should have a special appeal to girls of mid-teen age.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! As the first book of what appears will be many in this series, it immediately grabs your attention and keeps it. Good balance of a fast pace and an in-dept plot. Fantastic that the Author used real town names for the story line. Can’t wait for the next one”

“Within the first 10 minutes of this book I was sucked in. The characters yearn to tell their story and with every turn of the page the story does not disappoint. I am looking forward to the next book and continuing on this adventure!”

“Age appropriate page turner. Pulls you through every corner. Left me wanting for more……What happens next? Arlene Lagos (author) knows her audience well. We need more female adventure characters like this one!!! Do we get the next book soon??!!?”

“Wow, this was truly one amazing book by Arlene lagos! She is one fantastic writer. I was hooked from the beginning to the end! I loved the overall story and the characters where so real and I loved the dialogue! As I said as a reader I was hooked as a writer I was amazed. Amazing!”

“Gripping from start to finish and left me simply wanting more. A page-turning plot that is a perfect summer read! Strong main character and setting descriptions that make you feel like part of the action. A real hybrid as far as genre goes, there is something for everyone in this book.”
“Adventure, imagination, and smart are all words I would use to describe this book. Arlene Lagos has created new worlds to explore and a strong female lead to explore with. I would recommend this book.”

Beyond Earth Costume Design Contest: $500 cash prize


Beyond Earth

“Beyond Earth Costume Design Contest”

Launching at Boston ComicCon

$500 cash prize to winner!

Calling all artists, designers and masters of digital manipulation!  Arlene Lagos, Author of The Beyond Earth Series, is holding the first “Beyond Earth Costume Design Contest” launching August 3rd at Boston ComicCon.  This is an international contest and anyone can enter!

I want to see what people think a modern day heroine looks like, by challenging today’s top artists to draw their ideas and then ask my fans to choose the best one to represent my story. Today’s generation of girls are lost on the concept of the female heroine/warrior. They don’t have a Wonder Woman, Buffy or Xena to look up to. I’m hoping to change that.”- Arlene Lagos

Here are the rules:

  1. Design a costume for the main character Adaminia, based on what’s reflected in the story.
  2. Send a picture of your design via email to beyondearthseries@gmail.com by no later than Monday, September 2nd at Midnight EST. Put “Costume Entry” in the subject line.
  3. Starting on September 3rd, all designs will be posted on the Beyond Earth Series website at http://www.beyondearthseries.com and voting will begin.
  4. The winner with the most votes by October 4th will be announced and awarded the grand prize of $500 as well as have their design featured in future promotions!
