The Fortune Teller of Philippi


How we came to publish this one

This is one of our Red Telephone books. Author Jenny Robertson is already in our author network. We have published her before and she has been in our community of writers for quite a while.   


The title

This so aptly identifies the story. This is a total no-brainer.  


Some notes about the process

We went through the normal three stages of editing with this, followed by three proof-reads. This was a very smooth process; Jenny is a total professional.


The cover

It took a little while to find the right concept. It may have been reasonably easy to get one designed with the figure of a young girl on it as the protagonist is female. However, we shy away from having representations of characters in our fiction. We are a little unusual in this. We prefer that the reader decides what people look like. We do have “every person” figures on some of our books.    


Some notes about style

The style is spot on for the young adult / teen reader. It is quite pragmatic and uses plain English.  

Who we think the reader is

This is suitable for the younger end of YA. There is romance but no overt sexual scenes. There is a strong Christian message here. This includes miracles and some supernatural evil both of which raise the stakes a little.


What else

Jenny is well established in her world and has been quite influential with the marketing.
