Evansville Local Authors – Episode #10 08/16 by Lanea Stagg | Music Podcasts

Our authors Jean Knight Pace and Jacob Kennedy were interviewed on the radio! Check out the coverage below.
The much anticipated young adult fantasy novel by Jean Knight Pace and Jacob Kennedy has finally arrived. Tune in to hear the authors chat about their journey to find ‘Grey Stone.’ Jean Knight Pace, mother of four, says she ‘still gets that little chill up my spine realizing that the pig keeper is really destined to be king–that there’s always a place for the small and weak to discover their deep potential and do great things (especially if they eat their vegetables).’ Jacob Kennedy is an ER doctor who dreams up stories in his spare time. Check out their book here: https://www.amazon.com/Grey-Stone-Jean-Knight-Pace/dp/1939156769/

TWO LOCAL AUTHORS COMBINE HIGH FANTASY WITH WOLF LORE TO CREATE A FRESH NEW YOUNG ADULT NOVEL

 

Before the rise of men, there were wolves…

What started off as stories local ER doctor Jacob Kennedy made up featuring his kids as main characters soon morphed into a project big enough that he asked local writer Jean Knight Pace if she’d be interested in co-authoring a book. She was excited to join up, adding to the story with her own ideas and style (and slipping her children into some of the character’s skins as well). Before they knew it, Kennedy and Pace had crafted what began as a few paragraphs of backstory into a book of high fantasy for tweens and teens. Instead of dragons, elves, and dwarves there were werewolf monarchs, talking dogs, and impoverished humans winding their way through a story that culminated in a Gladiator-style tournament—a tournament won (or lost, depending on how you look at it) by an unlikely hero and an unlikely traitor.

Join Jean and Jake as they launch/debut their new book, Grey Stone, at Barnes and Noble on August 20, 2016 at 3:30 pm, at the Evansville, IN, location. There will be giveaways, contests, a book signing, Q & A, and (naturally) candy and laughter.

Jean Knight Pace has had essays and short stories published in Puerto del Sol, The Lakeview Review, Crucible, and other literary magazines. Jacob Kennedy is an ER doctor who dreams werewolves and tournaments in his free time. Both of them live in Evansville with amazing spouses, boodles of kids, and furry pets who (as far as anyone knows) do not speak. You can find out more at jeanknightpace.com, jacobkennedybooks.com. Purchase Grey Stone from Amazon of Barnes and Noble.

ISP Book Awards Open for Submissions!

Starting August 1st, Ink Smith Publishing is starting our first annual Book Publishing Awards. These awards will focus on three genres and their sub genres.

Why should you enter into the Book Publishing Awards instead of waiting for general book submissions to reopen?

Our general submissions run for a short amount of time every year. At that time, authors with books in all genres are welcomed to submit their query. From open to close, we receive thousands of submissions in multiple genres. Which makes competition fierce. Out of our general submissions, we will sign contracts with about 4-6 authors.

With our genre specific book publishing awards, the entrants will not be competing against as many submissions.

The ISP 2016 Book Publishing Awards are meant to be a straightforward opportunity for dedicated and passionate authors with extraordinary work to get published.

You can post any questions you may have below.

More posts to come. Stay Tuned.

Enter the 2016 ISP Book Publishing Awards now to take advantage of this exciting opportunity to have your book considered for cash prizes, awards, exposure, and possible representation by a leading publishing company.
