'Questing for Uberjoy' is Released
Überjoy always wanted to make a difference. Because of this, her fiancé Orion wasn't surprised when she joined the Peace Corps. He was surprised however, when she went missing in the Himalayan mountains. Konrad Ventana takes readers to the Himalayas and beyond in "Questing for Überjoy: Book Three of the Post-Lux Trilogy" (published by iUniverse).
Many books today follow the "conquering hero" format and feature a lone hero who conquers all foes and trials in front of them. In "Questing for Überjoy" Ventana challenges this myth as readers will follow Orion who is an everyday man that requires the aid of many others to find his missing fiancé in China. Ventana hopes this journey will prove to be an "elixir for the desperation, disenchantment and existential vacuum of an otherwise graceless age."
"Questing for Überjoy" has been selected for inclusion in the iUniverse Rising Star program, which recognizes excellence in writing and overall potential. Rising Star is a one-of-kind program that provides authors with enhanced opportunities for exposure on local, regional and national levels.
