3 New Books Evolved Publishing –
1 for Kids Aged 7-11, 2 for Adults

 
For our October book launch event, we’re following up with the second book in the new fun mystery series for lower grade readers (1st grade to 5th grade, depending on reading level), The Pet Shop Society, from long-etsbalished writer of kids’ books, Emlyn Chand. Emlyn has been writing the Bird Brain Books series of children’s picture books for a couple of years, and is now branching out into lower grade chapter books. Her Bird Brain Books stories revolved around birds, often featuring many of their animal friends. Well, Emlyn continues to offer fun stories for the kids that involve animals, and we’re thrilled to bring you the second book in The Pet Shop Society.
 
We’re also offering the first book (sort of) from a great new voice from Israel (and the U.S.), Steven Greenberg, with the release of Galerie. Steven had previously published a book called Enfold Me, a post-Israel thriller, but he has pulled it in order to revise it and re-publish it with us (coming March 2016). Thus, Galerie becomes something like his first book… again. 🙂
 
Third, we’re releasing the first book from author Ellen Joyce with Shadow Side, a paranormal thriller. This one contains more adult themes and is sure to appeal to fans of paranormal suspense.
 
And now, a little more about all 3 books. Just click on the covers or titles to go to the book pages, where you’ll find all the information on these books, as well as links to the books at your favorite online retailers. Enjoy!
 

LOWER GRADE CHAPTER BOOKS FOR KIDS 6-11 YEARS OLD

Maddie and the Purrfect Crime by Emlyn Chand
3D-MaddieAndThePerfectCrime 
Maddie Adams isn’t your typical middle schooler. She’d much rather read about Amelia Earhart or Madame Curie than yet another fairytale princess finding her happily-ever-after with a dreamy prince. Yuck! She knows she’ll change the world one day, just like her real-life heroes, so why not let that day be today?
 
When a series of unexplained phenomenon start to take place around her home, Maddie turns to The Pet Shop Society for help. While her twin brother Mike is certain they’re dealing with a ghost, Maddie is equally certain that there’s a plausible—perhaps even scientific—explanation for the rash of missing objects, flickering lights, and other household mischief.
 
With the boys too chicken to jump on the case, it looks like the girls will be handling this one. Join Maddie, Bree, and Nic for a sleepover gone very, very wrong, as they attempt to unravel the mystery of the Purrfect Crime.
 
 

HISTORICAL THRILLER

Galerie by Steven Greenberg
Galerie 3D 
Every family holds to secrets, but some are far darker, reach deeper, and touch a rawer nerve than others.
 
Vanesa Neuman is the daughter of Holocaust survivors, and her childhood in the cramped intimacy of south Tel Aviv is shadowed by her parents’ unspoken wartime experiences. The past for her was a closed book… until her father passes away and that book falls literally open. Vanesa must now unravel the mystery of the diary she has received—and the strange symbol within—at all costs.
 
Set against the backdrop of the Nazi occupation and the Jewish Museum of Prague—Adolf Eichmann’s “Museum of an Extinct Race”—Galerie is fast-paced historical fiction in the tradition of Tatiana De Rosnay’s Sarah’s Key. From Jerusalem’s Yad V’Shem Holocaust research center, to the backstreets of Prague, and into the former “paradise ghetto” of Theresienstadt, Vanesa’s journey of understanding will reveal a darker family past than she ever imagined—a secret kept alive for over half a century.
 

PARANORMAL THRILLER

Shadow Side by Ellen Joyce
3D-ShadowSide 
This suspenseful thriller is perfect for paranormal fans 16 and older.
 
Bryar Bowden is a reformed hillbilly hell-raiser, tamed down to a mundane husband for a soulless wife.
 
Chloe James is a functional sex addict, running from a lover who challenged her compulsive need for control.
 
Partnered as state investigators for a corrupt governor, they cover up an incestuous love triangle that hides a metaphysical jail break. When it changes everything they know about being human, their only hope to survive is to trigger each other’s shadow side.
 
 
 
 

AND SO….
