In celebration of The Girl In Between blog tour, we’re kicking off the Indie Author Spotlights with Devon Trevarrow Flaherty, author of The Night of One Hundred Thieves, The Journey of Clement Fancywater, and The Family Elephant’s Jewels.
The Night of One Hundred Thieves: Who will be the last thief standing? The Queen was dying. The kingdom was at peace. And the ring was about to be buried forever in the royal crypt. But its aura of power and its promise of riches and its stories of magic were destined to inspire a night never to forget, The Night of One Hundred Thieves. From an unlikely cast of farmers, travelers, townspeople, courtiers and royals, One Hundred unravels a tale of forty people all both recognizable and special in their own way, as they barrel toward their future together and an inevitable clash of motives. From Farah the Barren to Nora the Girl Widow, from Tarquis the Secret Pirate to Lykus the Cupbearer, their stories will make you laugh, cry, remember, and hope for their future and the future of magic.
The Journey of Clement Fancywater: Sometimes fantasies are for real. Clement is living with his parents, working as an administrative assistant by day, and playing video games all by himself by night, when he is orphaned at age thirty. His grief, desperation, and homelessness lead him to a park bench where a bizarre two-faced man points him down a rabbit hole toward the Hollow Earth. Is Clement the hero the world needs to save it from a power so insidious the Wide Worlders don’t yet know of its approach? Will he find his way through a colorful, subterrestrial world to sonship, love, worth, and the magical, glowing rock that will save humanity from the schemes of the Wizard Queen?
The Family Elephant’s Jewels: Whose secrets could undo you? John was once a young, superstitious literature professor meeting the fiery love of his life, Gemma. Now he’s an aged, superstitious literature professor dealing with the sudden death of the grossly obese, shop-o-holic love of his life, Gemma. As their 7 surviving kids make their way back to their East coast home for the funeral, they each uncover a secret about Gemma, and in so doing unhinge something in themselves.
****Devon is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help fund these projects and she needs your help!****
The Kickstarter campaign runs until Wednesday, November 5 at 11:00 pm EDT. The goal–only realized if fully funded–is $17,579. This number reflects costs for publishing and publicizing Devon Trevarrow Flaherty’s next three novels. One book is ready, the other two are nearly there. Two of the books are fantasies (The Night of One Hundred Thieves and The Journey of Clement Fancywater) and the other is literary fiction (The Family Elephant’s Jewels). Gifts include free ebooks, paperbacks, and even parties and recognition in the book.
FYI, I just donated to the campaign and the process is incredibly simple. In one step you can create an account and kickstarter actually processes your payment through Amazon, which if you’re already a frequent shopper there, makes everything so much easier!
