My First Press Release


Marcy L. Peska

Marcy L. Peska publishes debut novel set in Juneau

 Juneau, AK, May 15, 2013

 Longtime resident Marcy L. Peska released her debut novel Magic All Around, on Mother’s Day on Amazon Kindle’s digital publishing platform KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing). 

 Marcy set Magic All Around in Juneau because, “There’s nowhere more enchanting than Southeast Alaska.  The land, the ocean, the climate, the wildlife; this region is magic.” Magic All Around is contemporary fantasy written for adults.  Dog-lovers will delight in the canine antics that shape this story and genre readers will relish a fresh voice in the field.  Marcy’s loving portrayal of Juneau’s scenery, weather and local customs is woven smoothly into the fabric of the novel.  Readers previously unfamiliar with the region may find themselves longing for a taste of wild Alaskan salmon and a visit to the world’s largest temperate rainforest.

Marcy arrived in Juneau, Alaska as an infant and spent much of her transient childhood living on boats and in float houses.  She lived in the remote community of Edna Bay in Southern Southeast Alaska for nine years and returned to Juneau permanently in 1991.    

 Marcy is a dog-loving author who lives with her husband and their four-footed pitsky (pit bull/husky mix) Jeb.  Ms. Peska blogs at  Her novel, as well as her short memoir Head Buckets & Hashtags, may be purchased from Amazon Kindle.
