New Children’s Books series – The Diaries of Montague J. Milford


one223

The Diaries of Montague J. Milford can be summed up as Sherlock Holmes meets The X Files.

Set in the mid 1800’s the stories center around Montague J. Milford, a young scientist who travels around investigating accounts of the paranormal trying to disprove them only to discover the strange goings on are real. He is joined on his adventures by Lady Ann Pendelton, a young Victorian era English daughter of nobility who shares his insatiable curiosity and love of science.

Geared for young readers the material is a mixture of adventure story telling, accurate period scientific technology and fantasy. My goal is to create stories that entertain the young readers while at the same time offer a hero and heroine that use there wits and scientific knowledge to save the day. With a mixture of humor, bravery, and ingenuity Montague and Lady Ann face down phantoms, creatures and things that go bump in the night. Montague is a scientist who uses his expertise to try to debunk accounts of super natural goings on only to have his courage tested when faced with the existence of super natural beings. With clinical problem solving reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes he sets out on his quest for the truth. The character of Lady Ann also provides an excellent roll model for young girls through not only her bravery in peril but through her being the intellectual and technical equal of Montague.

Raising money for a Halloween launch!

It’s such an exciting feeling! We already have two books completed, The Shadow of Cavendor Manor and The Phantom of the Docks, and we are working on a third The Beast of Boston!. The goal is to have an ongoing series following Montague and Lady Ann on their adventures. But to do that we need to complete the third volume and get the word out!

The funds we are raising will not only go towards the cover design and editing costs of the third book but also to a promotional campaign for the series this Halloween. Graphic design and editing are quite expensive.  And promotional materials even more so with printing costs and ad placement. After all a project can only be successful if people know about it. So we have come to indiegogo to raise what we need.

We truly do believe in our concept and I love writing about these two wonderful characters. I know a lot of people say it but I think we honestly do have the next Harry Potter on our hands. The concept is completely original, the stories are fun and exciting, and the possibilities for adventure are endless.
