Welcome back to Good Word Friday!
This week, I’m honored to share in a WORLDWIDE cover reveal for THE CURSE OF THE GRANVILLE FORTUNE, the upcoming release from my friend, author Kelly Hashway-
CURSE OF THE GRANVILLE FORTUNE
Pub. Date: October 22, 2014* (*Date subject to change!)
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.
Your lit. rat once beta-read an early version of this book, and while much has changed since first I saw in process, I know Kelly and her team at Tatum Books have worked this to a top-tier novel, and I can’t wait to read the final version!
ABOUT CURSE OF THE GRANVILLE FORTUNE:
Find the fortune, break the curse!
The hunt is on for an ancient treasure tied to twelve-year-old J.B.’s family history. He’s been having visions that make him sweaty, lightheaded, and certain he’s turning into some kind of freak—or worse, going insane. But things are worse than he imagined. The visions stem from a family curse. An ancient ancestor was accused of stealing the massive Granville fortune, and now J.B.’s entire family will suffer.
To break the curse, J.B. must find and return the Granville’s stolen property. But he’s not the only one searching for the treasure. As he sets out on his journey through a dark and foreboding forest, he’ll battle his worst fears and fight terrifying creatures along the way. And when he meets two others who share the missing pieces of his visions and suffer from the same curse, the three soon realize they need to work together to break the curse before it’s too late.
ABOUT KELLY HASHWAY
Reading is a thing of magic. It has allowed me to enter into worlds I never would have known. I’ve cried, laughed, and been scared right alongside my favorite characters. And my hope is that one day kids will do the same for my characters. I want kids to see that reading is one of the greatest gifts. Luckily, my daughter already agrees with me!

Today’s post will be brief today as I have pre-Thanksgiving shopping to do among other things. But I did want to share some great stuff real quick-
For those of you who’ve been following T.A.A.’s posts during November, you’ll know I recently backed a Kickstarter campaign for author Julie Hedlund’s “My Love for You is the Sun” as part my “T.A.A. CARES” imitative to give authors and other content creators a helping hand (Er…Paw) in spreading the word and donating money alongside whatever grass routes PR your literary rat can provide.
Two days ago, Julie (Who I spotlighted in a recent blog post) reached her funding goal-
But there’s still PLENTY of time to donate if you haven’t already. One of the great things about Kickstarter is that as long as you earn the minimum of funds needed to deliver a project, you can earn more than that, and allow for stretch goals that further benefit the project.
The funding period won’t end until December 12, 2013, and any donations beyond this point will allow Julie and her publisher, Little Bahalia, to aid in promotion and expand her school visits when the book releases in Fall-Winter 2014.
In honor of Julie’s Kickstarter success, T.A.A. will do a special giveaway, and due to the limited time frame the last time I tried to do a giveaway, I’m making this as simple as I can. Please check back next week when I announce how you can win a copy of “My Love for You is the Sun” and other fun prizes.

That’s all for today. Until next time, may the fantastic fauna be with you.
