=Blog Post Choice C:

As if becoming an epic fantasy author right out of the gate into the writing world wasn’t enough work in itself, author Janet Beasley has upped the bar by pulling together an entire. . .well . . .epic package!

Let’s start at the beginning. . .Janet was always the one in class staring out of the window, daydreaming, and crafting in her mind what land she could be princess of when she got home. Now you may think that we’re talking during grade school, but Janet informed us it lasted all through her college days, and long into present day in her early 50s. Between her fantastical imagination and spending 30+ years in the live event and production arena she knows how to “put on a show.”

Along with the release of her novel, Hidden Earth Volume 1 Maycly, there will be two companion books: a full color – full size illustration book complete with detailed descriptions of the animals, plants, and select characters. In addition she is nearing completion on a full scale cookbook which will boast several recipes from the restaurants found on Maycly. There will also be a history for each of the restaurant owners. But wait, there’s more! She has spent the last several months putting together an online shop filled with Maycly  Paraphernalia such as T-shirts, hats, mugs, jewelry, and other cool stuff with readers favorite characters, animals, and plants. And to top it off she’s struck a deal with Debbie’s Pet Treats and People Sweets to become the sole baker and distributor of the favored treat on Maycly; Gramma Hilda’s Doggie Delights™.

HIDDEN EARTH Volume 1 Maycly is currently available in paperback with ebooks coming soon. The paperback is a masterpiece with its over 70 illustrations, and professional design layout and pagination. Janet says once word gets out, it will become a collector’s item without a doubt.

To purchase a paperback copy simply visit Hidden Earth Series.com where you are able to make a secure purchase.
