Every now and then I hear about a new book coming out and I can hardly wait to get my hands on a copy. Not only does The Afterlife Academy sound incredibly awesome (read the synopsis below) but the author, Frank L. Cole, is one amazing guy. He never misses an opportunity to make someone else feel special—yeah, he’s one of those guys. Not only is he super nice, but he’s supper funny (as in he tells lots of jokes, not that he’s funny looking). This book is coming just in time for the new school season and it’s ripe for some pre-Halloween fun. A kid pleaser for sure!
Want to meet the author? Frank L. Cole is having TWO incredible book launch parties and everyone is invited to come get a book and have some fun. The first is on Thursday, September 10th at the Jordan Landing Barnes and Noble (7157 Plaza Center Dr, West Jordan, UT, 84084) starting at 6:30 pm. The second is Tuesday, September 15th at The King’s English (1511 1500 E, Salt Lake City, UT, 84105) starting at 7:00 pm.
Walter Prairie knows how to deal with bullies. He just has to beat them to the punch. But he doesn’t see the biggest hit of his life coming when he is struck dead by a bolt of lightning. Before Walter even knows what’s happened, he is sent to a Categorizing office, fast-tracked through the Afterlife Academy, and assigned as a Guardian Agent to protect a High-Level Target.
Walter's HLT, Charlie Dewdle, isn’t exactly the most popular kid in school. He’s what you might call paranormally obsessed. When Charlie finds an ancient book with spells that can be used to open the Gateway for demons to wreak havoc on earth, it’s up to him and Walter to fight an eclectic horde of enemies and protect humankind at all costs.
But saving the world isn’t so easy. Especially when your protector doesn’t know the first thing about the Underworld, bullies like Mo Horvath are trying to hunt you down, pretty and popular Melissa Bittner is suddenly talking to you, and your parents think you’re going crazy.
