This week on Living Inspired please welcome guest host Justin Blaney, author of the popular Isfits series and guest YA author Jon S. Lewis.
If you’re reading this after 10/3/13 you’ll be able to find this show . . . and all my shows in the archive section.
About Justin, the guest host: Justin Blaney is the #1 bestselling author of Evan Burl and the Falling. He’s a blogger at JustinBlaney.com and I4J.org, the creator of Isfits, and a film producer with Inkliss. He lives outside Seattle with his wife and three daughters.
About Jon: Jon S. Lewis is the coauthor of the Grey Griffins trilogy (over 850,000 books sold in the series). He also writes for the DC COMICS family of publishers. He resides with his family in Arizona.
About Grey Griffins: Night of the Dragons: Grey Griffins: Night of Dragons is the seventh book in the Grey Griffins series and it picks up right where Grey Griffins: Paragon Prison left off.
But for all you new readers, it’s also a great jumping on point. You won’t miss a beat. I promise!
The story opens during the summer between sixth and seventh grade and for the first time in months everything is quiet in the tiny town of Avalon, Minnesota. Then a series of fires sweeps through the town and the citizens of Avalon start to worry that an arsonist is on the loose. But the Grey Griffins know the truth . . . it’s not an arsonist. It’s a dragon. And there are more on the way.
I would like to publish this next Grey Griffins adventure as an independent story, but I need your help. I need $10,000 to hire professional artists and editors in order to ensure the same high quality you’ve come to expect from the Grey Griffins novels published by Scholastic and Little Brown.
The part I’m really excited about? If we raise an additional $15,000 we’ll unlock a collection of Grey Griffins short stories written by some of the biggest names in the publishing industry today . . . I’m talking authors like Brandon Mull (Fablehaven), Aprilynne Pike (Wings), Frank Beddor (Looking Glass Wars), Shannon Messenger (Let the Sky Fall) and more!
All backers of this Grey Griffins Kickstarter campaign will receive access to a private Facebook Group where you’ll get news about the series long before the rest of the world. You’ll also get to weigh in on character names and plot lines. You won’t just read the story, you’ll be part of it!
