Friday, August 1 – 8:24 a.m. CT
It’s really hard to believe that it’s August 1. Because it is, however, it is exactly one month until the release of the highly anticipated The First Escape, the first book in the six-part The Dopple Ganger Chronicles, the new illustra-novella from New York Times bestselling author G.P. Taylor. What is an illustra-novella? Simply, it is a mixture of prose, comic sequentials, and graphic illustrations. While I won’t comment on the story itself because I have yet to read it, the book itself is stunning. First, the book doesn’t have a dust jacket so the cover art is imprinted directly on the cover of the book. It’s incredibly eye-catching. I know when it arrived at Tyndale I walked it around to a number of people just to show them the remarkable appearance of the book, both its cover and the pages inside.
I’ll try to let the linked article speak more about the quality of the book. The article is titled, “Author’s book encourages dyslexic girl to write.”
