McKinney, Texas (PRWEB) May 08, 2014
The Osmond family’s California-based publishing company, Sourced Media Books, announces the addition of Texas author Grant Kauffman to its growing list of authors. Kauffman signed a three-book deal for a young adult adventure series called Project 14, the first of which takes place in Texas and will be released in May. Amy Osmond Cook, who is heading the multi-book project, says she is excited for the new series—one she thinks will be successful.
“We are very excited to welcome Grant Kauffman to the Sourced Media Books family. We feel the Project 14 series will be a great success with not only our young adult audience, but also with fans of all ages who enjoy adventure and fantasy,” Osmond Cook said. “Grant Kauffman is a creative storyteller who has come up with a very marketable series—one that could easily become the next popular franchise book series.”
The heart of Texas River Country is the setting for the first book in the series, Project 14: The Legend of Beelzebub’s Bluff. This high-energy adventure/fantasy novel takes place both in and under the Lone Star state. It is the story of five young people who, while on a family camping trip, get trapped in a cave system deep below the earth’s surface, where they discover an extraordinary secret. Kauffman, who has lived in Texas for over ten years, says Sourced Media Books was a perfect fit for him on several levels.
“Amy Osmond Cook and I share a similar passion for great stories that are not only entertaining to read, but adaptable to other mediums. It was important to me to sign with a publisher that understands more than just books, which the Osmond family obviously does. That type of synergy is one of the reasons I chose to sign with Sourced Media Books. I’m very excited to be a part of the Sourced Media Books team and look forward to producing entertaining stories for years to come.”
As for the story taking place in Texas, Kauffman says he’d have it no other way. “The first story had to be a Texas story. I love the rich terrain and diverse people of Texas. It’s such a great place to live—so many places to explore. Texans will surely enjoy this story on many levels. I’m proud to call Texas home.”
Project 14: The Legend of Beelzebub’s Bluff will be available in June.
