Today we welcome the “Kingdom of Hamelot” to WSB as one of our newest sponsors. Its creators explain:
Did you know that an entire kingdom is coming to life right here in West Seattle? We’re Connie Watts and Jen Olson, publishers of a new eBook series for kids called the Kingdom of Hamelot, stories based in a mythical, Elizabethan-era kingdom (kind of a mixture of Harry Potter and Downton Abbey). The world is rooted in historical facts about the time period and includes tales of magic, intrigue and deception, as well as friendship, acceptance and love. Our eBooks are enhanced, meaning the words on the (digital) page are accompanied by music and narration, challenging vocabulary words, and rich illustrations—and even entertaining supplemental videos.
We have just released Series I: Menagerie of Murder and have four more series planned for this year. Series II: With Mettle and Grit is due out in March. Our eBooks and audiobooks are available on Amazon, iTunes, Audible, and Barnes and Noble.
Connie’s mom, Sharon, is the author of these amazing stories. We are going head-to-head with the big boys of the publishing world by doing all of the planning, production and publicity ourselves, right here on Alki. We are really interested in partnering with local businesses, teachers, and organizations in creative ways. (We are currently offering our Series I eBook to teachers for free.)
Have an idea about partnering or an event? Please let us know! We’ve already held some events in the area and look forward to holding many more. Visit our website at kingdomofhamelot.com or like us on Facebook at facebook.com/KingdomofHamelot. And if you have suggestions, ideas, comments or an unpublished bestseller (we are publishing other eBooks by different authors), please send us e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you!
