Today I’m moving a little out of my regular genres to tell you about a book by Gus Kenney, author of The Complications of Being Lucy, a series described as “a fun-for-all-ages new series of modern day magic and adventure.”
Here’s a blurb about Book One in the series, The Changeling and the Cupboard:
NEVER GO INTO THE PARK.
Lucy was never afraid of the dark. She never questioned her family. She never thought that the world of logic and science could be a lie. But on her ninth birthday everything changed when a strange boy came into her life from the very lands she was forbidden from ever entering and she finds herself immersed in a conspiracy that was created before she was born. Her reality is shattered by the existence of magic and things of legend. The bonds of family are tested by a lifetime of deception and the truth of who she actually is becomes the least of Lucy’s torments. For someone has unleashed a nightmare, and Lucy, her family, and her new friends are soon on the run from a creature that even darkness fears.

And here’s a blurb of Book Two in the series, The Changeling and the Borrowed Family:
A NIGHTMARE IS JUST A DREAM IN THE LIGHT OF DAY.
Lucy was used to everyone hiding things from her. Now she is the one forced to hide. The Changelings have been discovered and to save herself, Lucy must slip into the life of a creature who shares her nightmares. With her family scattered in search for answers and her only friend powerless to help, Lucy must guard her heart from the world she always longed for and from the people that want her dead. But how can you fight the agony of your dreams and the secrets buried in your own blood?

Meet Gus Kenney
Gus lives in western New York with his amazing wife and five four legged children. He decided he wanted to be a writer when he realized that he could never be a spy as good as Timothy Dalton’s Bond and that Hired Sword was not part of any growth industry. When he is not semi-busy writing, he spends his time pretending he knows what he is doing at a nine-to-five job and the rest of it complaining that it is taking way too long for them to start showing new episodes of his favorite cartoons. If you’re bored, or just a creeper, you can check out the insanity that doesn’t make it into his books on his social media outlets.
Amazon (Both books are on sale now in the US and UK for 99c/p)
