Williamsburg, VA, August 16, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Independent publisher Kinfolks Inc. has released the first two installments of its “ORB” young adult trilogy, with both books included in “Orphan” for greater reader value and story understanding. Giving away any book is very rare, so offering “ORB” for free along with the sequel “Orphan” may set a new industry trend.
“The first book ‘ORB’ was released in late 2015, so when we were ready to publish the second installment we just felt it right to give readers a break and let them have both books,” explains Kinfolks president Dean Elliott Case. “We are incredibly proud of ‘Orphan’ and readers really seem to appreciate having more money in their pockets.”
“ORB” was the first installment of this young adult trilogy “as told by Jaxon Forde.” Described by reviewers as southern gothic sci-fi, “ORB” follows a young boy who refuses to speak, and a strange celestial event that alters his life forever. A bizarre ball is soon baffling and empowering Jaxon, intriguing his sisters and enraging his mother and very redneck stepdad. Sales and reviews for “ORB” exceeded all expectations so, when the sequel “Orphan” was ready to be published, Kinfolks deemed offering “ORB” along with “Orphan” for free as essential to share the story while saving readers money.
Author Brad Lockwood was fully supportive of the publisher’s strategy. “Offering two books as one is a unique idea, and it is interesting to see how readers pick up a copy, open it, then smile upon seeing there are two full books to read, for the price of one.”
Kinfolks Inc. has released four books, including “Orb” and “Orphan” as well as Lockwood’s stark historical novel “Blue Bucket” and the story of the company itself, “Kinfolks Knives: A History of Cutlery and Cousins.” Dean Elliott Case and Brad Lockwood are actually cousins, and related to America’s oldest and largest family of knifemakers. Remarkably, since the Civil War, the Case family has started no less than 32 different cutlery companies. Kinfolks was a critical manufacturer that saw the oft-feuding family members reunite to make knives and bayonets to support America’s efforts during World War II and beyond.
Kinfolks Inc. is intended to honor ancestors while also offering interesting and entertaining books and media. “Orphan” is available on Amazon and in fine bookstores, or by visiting www.KinfolksInc.com.
