The First Book in Jill Bowers’ “Immortal Writers” Series is Now Available!
Blue Moon Publishers is thrilled to be releasing Utah author Jill Bowers’ debut novel, Immortal Writers, the first in a multi-part series of the same name. This fresh and imaginative young adult fantasy series answers the question, “What would happen if the stories and characters of the greatest authors of all time came to life?” while simultaneously addressing serious issues such as child abuse in a sensitive and thoughtful manner.
About Immortal Writers
Immortal Writers tells the story of young up-and-coming author Liz McKinnen, who has no idea that her life is about to change forever when she comes home from her first book tour. When she’s kidnapped and told by her captors that she has to kill her fantasy book’s antagonist, she thinks that she’s fallen into the hands of crazy, dangerous fans… until her antagonist sends a real, fire-breathing dragon after her.
Liz is quickly initiated into the Immortal Writers, a group of authors from throughout time whose words have given them eternal life, and whose prose is so powerful that it’s brought stories over from the Imagination Field into the Reality Field. As Liz meets authors such as William Shakespeare, JRR Tolkien, Edgar Allan Poe, and Jane Austen, she has to learn how to control magic, fight dragons, and face her own troubled past before her power-hungry villain takes over the world.
Immortal Writers was inspired by Jill’s deep love of stories. While angrily contemplating a world without magic, she pondered the consequences of a universe where our favourite tales could come to life. Her pondering compounded into a story that has now become the “Immortal Writers” series.
