The Deep Forest Elves.
Our first full-length novel.
Book One of the series. This series tells of the Greatest Adventures In Modern Elvish History. This is the retelling of the ultimate war of good against evil as it actually took place, retold by the High Elves. Challenges and battles abound. Join Amanda Ackers as she meets elves, dwarves, goblins, witches, wizards, dragons and other creatures, as her adventures take her deep into wondrous lands, filled with exotic creatures. She finds a long lost and powerfully Wizitched artifact, that she was never meant to find. She must learn to control the spirits trapped within it, or all the good within all realms, will forever perish, leaving only darkness and evil. What awaits her on her journey? Be transported into the story, and find out! If in a paperback version, app. 740 pages.
Book one is 233,217 words in length, excluding the front matter (copyright page, dedication, etc., and without the Appendix, which is very important to this series). If this book were in print as a typical 6×9 inch paperback, it would be over 700 pages in length.
If you loved the Harry Potter series, or the Lord of The Rings, we think you’ll love this series as well.
Here is what others are saying about Book one.
Five Star Ratings from Barns and Noble:
These novels are far superior than any I have read dealing with teens in sci-fi. Since Harry Potter & The Twilight novels I had become tired of all of the magic & vampire novels flooding the market. I read them when my funds were limited and choices were few. I just finished reading book two of this series as book #3 wont be out till sometime next year I down-loaded every thing that Glen & Sasha Gabriel have available on my nook. Much to my surprise they were all free. : ) I am 57 and retired. I read my first novel at age 12. I seldom watch T.V. So I read. Thank you Glen and Sasha for giving me these wonderful novels. My grandsons aged 3 & 4 always have me tell them stories about what book I am reading. I edit or tone down the violence and use thier names as main characters. Thank you sooo much for the many good times you have given us. To all of you out there trying to decide if these novels are worth your time. Read them. You wont be disappointed.
Great story, highly recommend.
I’m a fan of the Harry Potter series, and if the other books in the Amanda series are as good as this one, I’ve found myself a new best series! The chapter titled, Journey Into The Bank, where they ride the mine cart on a roller-coaster thrill ride, with the goblin Kim, had me smiling. Heck, I want to take a ride like that. The chapters on the dueling competitions using wands was great. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who loves elves, dwarves, witches, wizards and just good adventures and a fun read.
Wonderful story, highly recommended.
I love adventure and action stories, as well as, elves, dwarves, witches, wizards and other creatures. This book has them all and then some. Amanda finds a powerful artifact and puts it on, then, can’t get it off. She learns it is the most powerful object in all the universes, and since she now wears it, SHE becomes the most powerful creature of all. The thing is, the artifact was meant for someone evil. Amanda is anything but evil, and no one knows how the artifact will interact with her. She sets out on a quest to discover either how to get the artifact off, before it turns her evil, or, learns how to control the spirits trapped within the artifact, before all is lost. Wonderful book. Have recommended it to many friends.
Terrific Story! If you liked the Harry Potter series, you’ll LOVE this!
I love a book that starts with action and one that is different. This book has both. The story is told as a transcript, compiled from the memories of the actual adventurers, surviving or demised, through the power of Wizitch, which is far more powerful than Magic. If you love elves, dwarves, goblins, witches, wizards, dragons and other creatures, and lots of adventure. I highly recommend this book, which is book one of the series. I never thought I would say this, but, I like this book as much as the Harry Potter books. If this is only the first book, I can’t wait for the others!

Five Star Ratings from Barns and Noble:
Best Series I’ve Ever Read!
I love this series! I actually feel as though I know Amanda, Thian, Tianna, Tia, Sadie and the others. Book one was outstanding to say the least, but book two rocks! Like another reviewer had mentioned, this book has lots of action, adventure and, yes, it answered many of the questions I had from book one, but has introduced many new ones. I love the chapter on the Boogie, and the fight scene with the spiders was great! Cliff hanger ending. Can’t wait for book three.
Book one was great. This book is truly outstanding.
Book one was great. This book is truly outstanding. The Bone Pit in chapter three really kept me turning the pages. Then I laughed in “Captured” chapter six at Thian. Chapter ten, “One Wild Ride” was exciting and the flaming rock people were very interesting. Shadow Alley was one of my favorites, and the character Wind Rider which we see near the end of the book, I somehow think we’ll see again. The great witch Bellinora, and her mother in the green vapor are terrific characters. I love how this book answers so many questions I had, but tosses in new ones. One of the best series I’ve ever come across. Can’t wait for book three!
Wow, and I thought book one was outstanding. Like book one, this one soon starts with lots of excitement… made my skin crawl within the first few chapters… loved it! Very interesting characters in this book. I love how the book also answers many of the questions I had. At first, I thought Amanda had gone through way to many adventures on and within the mountain, and could not understand how a young girl could have survived all she went through. Now, I know why! This series just gets better and better. I would recommend this series to everyone.

Our short stories.
The following short stories may be found at Smashwords.com and are FREE eBooks!
Originally, I (Glenn) had seen an ad online for a short story writing contest at lulu.com. There was only two weeks left for the contest. Neither Sasha nor myself were writers at this point. I knew that Sasha would love to be a writer and showed her the ad, saying that she should enter just for the experience and fun of it. She laughed and said, “Well… I will if you will.”
The contest was open for anyone, and you could write about anything, however, the story must be a Maximum of 600 words. I remember thinking, “What the heck could you possibly write in only 600 words?”
With only two weekends left in the contest, Sasha and I decided to write a couple of stories then upload them to Lulu.
Sasha ended up writing ten short stories, and I wrote four. I uploaded them and that was that… of course we didn’t win, but we knew that before we even began writing.
Several days after the end of the contest, I saw an ad for a company called Smashwords.com. It said that anyone could upload anything from a short story to an epic novel series for FREE. It stated that they would take you manuscript, then convert it to several of the most popular eBook formats, again, for FREE. Not only that, but they would then distribute your story to places like, Barns and Noble; the Apple iBook store; Kobo eBooks; Sony eBook store, Diesel eBooks and several others, including selected libraries… all for FREE!
I decided to upload our little short stories to Smashwords.com simply to make it easy for family to visit Smashwords and download our stories, should they wish to read our work for fun.
Of course, Sasha nor I expected anyone other than perhaps two or three of our family members to download the stories, but to our astonishment, in less than a full year, our little short stories have been downloaded over 24,000 times!
The covers you see for our short stories below are not what I would call good, but, as mentioned above, we only had two weeks to write and create covers for our shorts… so, I admit, I did not spend much time on the covers, other than for a few, which I think will be obvious.
It is with these few short stories, and our success and wonderful comments from those who read them, that both Sasha and I decided to begin writing when we could find the time.
If you have not done much writing till now, why not give short stories a try, and limit yourself to say, 1,500 words… the 600 word limit in our opinion, is just a tad too short, but one heck of a challenge!
Here are Sasha’s short stories:
