It has gone to press!

Here is the final cover. It went to press last week. I love the graphics, the design, the layout, the artwork and font choice. Everything about it is outstanding. I also love the endorsement from Kevin Buxbaum on the front cover? Check it out!

For those who can't read the tiny print, the endorsement on the front cover reads: "A young adult series destined to become Hollywood's next major motion picture trilogy. A must read." Kevin Buxbaum, Associate Producer, Life of Pi

Here, too, is the copy that they selected to put on the back of the book, starting with an excerpt from the book…

“The shock of the assault caught the men off guard, and they struggled to control the American. They wrestled him to the ground, pinning him there, holding him fast, as Sang stood up from the ground. Cursing in Khmer, Sang pointed the gun at Jonathon’s head and, without hesitating, pulled the trigger.”

Jonathon can’t wait to surprise Deliah for her birthday. With a little help from Deliah’s brother, Severino, he plans to visit her in Cambodia where she’s working as a humanitarian volunteer. But Jonathon arrives only to find a panicked Severino—
and no Deliah.

Jonathon and Severino are determined to find Deliah before it’s too late—but it might not be that easy. Now, with the orphan Chey and their friend Juan, Jonathon and Severino must fight their way through human trafficking rings, a dense jungle, and a radical group bent on using Deliah as a human sacrifice in order to find the Nāga Mani, a sacred and powerful stone.

Lair of the Serpent seamlessly blends intense action and suspense with family loyalty and tender romance. The rich setting and colorful characters will ignite your imagination, while the twisting plot and elements of fantasy will satisfy every adventurer’s thirst for exotic quests.

“Lair of the Serpent is full of adventure, memorable characters, and enough suspense to keep you at the edge of your seat.” Heather Ostler, author of The Shapeshifter’s Secret

The book can be preordered through online. It will be released in June!

  1. The first two books have been great. I am really looking forward to reading this one as well. That's a great front cover, as were the other two. And with a great endorsement from Kevin Buxbaum too. That's great. I'd love to see this series made into a movie.
