Masters and Beginners

Hey guys! Today’s post is very exciting for me.

A blogger friend of mine has been working hard on her own book and is in the midst of publication. She’s very excited to be publishing her book and I’m very excited to have been asked to share this with you. In case none of you have been to her site before here’s the link to The Invisible Moth. She writes some of the best posts I’ve seen. From reviews, to discussions to updates on her children’s lives. Which was definitely one of my favorite things about her site.  I highly recommend reading some of her posts to get a feel for her writing which is magnificent and so easy to follow.

When Sophie Driscoll’s grandmother dies, her parents take over running the Annex, a warehouse facility that stores magical artifacts and documents proving the existence of faeries. As she and her brothers, Flynn and Cal, adjust to a new house, new friends, and a new way of living, Sophie discovers that one of her friends is protecting a dark and dangerous secret. Now caught between two equally imposing groups who are after the girl’s very blood, Sophie and her family must decide where their loyalty lies — and how to survive the choice they make.


The Driscolls hadn’t always lived in Rylen, Ohio. Kate had grown up here, but when she was 18, she went to England to study abroad (just as her big sister had), and she met a very nice young man called James, and the short version was that they stayed in southeast Britain for several years, getting married and having babies there.

          When Sophie was around 7 years old, her family moved from Brighton  back to Rylen. They moved into the last unoccupied property in Merchantile Manor, so called after the butchers and bakers and candlestick makers that used to run their businesses in that end of town. James was a history teacher for the local schools. Kate worked from home and taught the kids until they decided they wanted to go to public school like all the other kids in their ballet/music/swimming lessons.

          But that was becoming more and more challenging. The fact that they weren’t like other kids, that their family was different, was growing more prevalent in their minds. No matter how much they wanted this not to be true, or to go away.

          Gramie Sheridan’s passing meant they couldn’t ignore it anymore. Her death had set their destiny into motion.

A self-professed YA fantasy addict and proud of it, Daley Downing blogs at The Invisible Moth about her writing, her kids, and her love of dance, music, movies, and reading.  

This book sounds really good, like it’s going to be packed with mystery and adventure. I really can’t wait to read this. Already I want to know Gramie Sheridan is and why are the children so different from regular children? What’s going to happen when they go to public school?

        Thank you so much for your effort to all of this! It’s a little intimidating, doing all the marketing myself. Any help I get is definitely appreciated!

      2. Oh I can imagine! Publishing your own book must be very stressful. I’m happy to help relieve some of that anyway I can 🙂 in fact, let me go tweet this right now…..

        In some ways, it’s less stress than sending off my “baby” to an unseen publisher/printer through Amazon or something… But it’s still a whole lot to manage.
