I am thrilled to announce the sale of Angela Townsend's AMAROK to Kate Kaynak at Spencer Hill Press.

From Publisher's Marketplace:
Angela Townsend's AMAROK, set in a remote Alaskan town, when a runaway is kidnapped by an evil man and his black wolf, whom she later discovers is a boy enslaved by an ancient shaman; she must find the strength to save herself and the wolf, and in turn discover what love truly means, to Kate Kaynak at Spencer Hill Press, by Jill Corcoran at The Herman Agency (NA).
"Emma’s life has been hell since she moved from sunny California to a remote Alaskan town. Abandoned by her father, and living with the guilt of causing her mother’s death, she makes a desperate dash for freedom from her abusive stepfather. But when her car skids off the icy road, her planned escape leads to further captivity in a world beyond her imagining. Dragged across the tundra by an evil mountain man and his enormous black wolf, she learns that love can be found in the most unexpected places. Amarok, as she’s nicknamed the wolf, is a young man from the gold rush era enslaved by an ancient shaman. Emma’s gentle touch and kind heart win his love and devotion. When a vicious native —trapped in bear form by the same Shaman—attacks the travelers, Amarok suffers the razor-like claws to protect Emma.  As Amarok lay dying, Emma finds the strength to face her fears, and sets off on a terrifying adventure to free the wolf she’s come to love. She must find the totem to liberate him, and face down the evil shaman, a Siberian mammoth hunter from the ice age. Emma has found her strength, but will it be enough to keep her and Amarok alive?"
Angela is also a fantastic artist---that mammoth above is art from her book!
