THE LOST HEIR is now officially on sale at Amazon as a Kindle E-book and Trade Paperback! (6x9, 312 pages, library quality)
If you are new to this blog, here's the rundown! The Lost Heir is Book #1 in the new children's fantasy adventure series, The Gryphon Chronicles, that I am co-writing with my dear husband Eric (the "E" in E.G. Foley). Eric is a jr high school teacher and is very good at keeping middle grade kids engaged and entertained. So, we combined his skills and his knowledge of the age group with my 15 years of storytelling experience and came up with The Gryphon Chronicles - a fantasy adventure series set in Victorian London. For ages 10 & up. Suitable for family read-alouds or classroom use. (No swear words, no gore.) This falls into the same genre as Harry Potter type books, and has broad appeal for adult readers as well as kids.
Here's the back cover copy if you haven't seen it yet:
Strange new talents...
Jake is a scrappy orphaned pickpocket living by his wits on the streets of Victorian London. Lately he's started seeing ghosts, and discovers he can move solid objects with his mind! He has no idea why.
Next thing he knows, a Sinister Gentleman and his minions come hunting him. On the run for his life, Jake is plunged headlong into a mysterious world full of magic and deadly peril. A world that holds the secret to who he really is: the long-lost heir of an aristocratic family—with magical powers!
But with treacherous enemies closing in, it will take all of his wily street instincts and the help of his friends—both human and magical— to solve the mystery of what happened to his parents, and defeat the foes who never wanted the Lost Heir of Griffon to be found . . .
Occasional musings on books, life, writing, and a general Whazzup! from your 'umble author.
