The Little Seer
Available now, from Amazon and other booksellers.
A young girl wakes from a dream that a tornado destroyed her church and her pastor ordered crows to peck out her eyes, only to discover deep cuts on her arms where she was attacked. Soon her dreams begin unfolding in her waking reality, her church and family begin to fall apart, and the only anchor of her sanity is a strange man who keeps appearing in her ever stranger dreams. What is happening to Aria? How is it that her dreams can tell the future? And why is her identity key in a spiritual battle raging over her church and town that could decide not only her fate and that of her friends, but that of the whole country or even the world? A story for the dreamers and the truth tellers, The Little Seer never averts its gaze from the tragedies and possibilities of modern American Christian spirituality, and provides a vision for the hope of another great spiritual awakening that could be just around the corner–if we have eyes to see.
Honors & Awards:
Exodus, the first book in the trilogy that makes up The Little Seer, hit #4 on the Kindle bestseller list for free Christian Suspense within less than 24 hours during its launch promotion, and then rose to #2 in Christian Suspense free titles and #5 in Occult/Supernatural free titles within the first week, making it one of the most popular new speculative supernatural titles on Amazon.
What People Are Saying:
And book reviewers on The Little Seer blog tour had this to say:
“I have read the Twilight series and the Hunger Games series and this book easily approaches that level of intensity and immersion in teen angst in a GOOD way…. The dream sequences are moving and lyrical with an artistic sense of being transported to another world. I have often felt that God communicates to us in our dreams and this story really nails it. There is a particularly moving scene between Aria and Christ that I can not possibly describe. It must be read and enjoyed. Laura has captured the essence of being in the presence of God; the presence of Christ; the presence of the Spirit in a close and moving way. I read each of these passages and breathed deeply of the moving presence of God I sensed behind the words…. Wonderful, moving work.” – Bruce Hennigan, speculative author and speaker
“The Little Seer by Laura Cowan is a high-intensity, no holds barred, we-are-coming-to-get-you thriller that will open your eyes to more than you can ever imagine. It will make you think twice about what you think you see, and it will not easily let you go….The love and compassion that flows from the pages of this book will revitalize even the coldest and hardest of hearts. Rivers of peace, mercy, and grace will replenish your spirit, and you will rest and rejoice in the knowledge that you are not alone and forgotten. We are all treasured and cherished beyond our mortal comprehension. Our lives have a beautiful and magnificent purpose if we will only gather up enough courage to discover what it is…. This story touched me deeply on a very personal level…. It broke my heart that someone gathered bits and pieces of such a haunting, hurtful, and yet valuable part of my life and then artfully weaved them into such a thought-provoking journey that I felt so ashamedly naked but also overwhelmingly loved.” – Amber McCallister, The Wonderings of One Person

A lifelong dreamer and modern Christian mystic, Laura draws from subconscious depths to bring the things we believe are impossible, spiritually and physically, into the world in a literal way, to bring the supernatural into the natural and help others come to see their infinite worth and the exquisite possibilities that exist in a world in which the supernatural is part of the natural order of things. Her mission is healing, truth, and love for a world gone mad for lack of them. Laura’s stories quite simply open the door to let heaven through, often in unexpected ways, to bless people to come into the fullness of their own lives.
Before writing fiction, Laura worked for years as an accomplished writer and editor in genres such as green tech, green parenting, and automotive media, and was called one of the best copy editors in the business by multiple colleagues, including late mentor David E. Davis, Jr., whom TIME Magazine called “the Dean of Automotive Journalism.” She was the founder of popular green parenting blog 29 Diapers, author of Ecofrugal Baby: How To Save 70% Off Baby’s First Year, and still serves as Road Test Editor for Inhabitat, the web’s largest green design blog. Laura’s work has appeared in Automobile Quarterly as well as on numerous parenting sites including BabyCenter, EcoMom, and Inhabitots. She has nearly 1,000 articles and blog posts to her credit, but is now happy to be writing fiction full-time. She lives in Michigan with her husband and daughter, who is already dictating her first stories to her to be published on construction paper.
