Jack Templar Monster Hunter #3 Released By Seven Gun Press

in Press Releases

PRESS RELEASE (10/1/2013) – Nearly a year after the release of the highly acclaimed middle grade fantasy/adventure novel Jack Templar Monster Hunter, Seven Guns Press has announced the release of Jack Templar and the Lord of the Vampires, Book #3 in the popular series by author Jeff Gunhus. Often compared to both Percy Jackson and Harry Potter, the series has enjoyed recognition for several national organizations. Foreword Review Magazine named the first book in the series a Book of the Year Finalist and the Parents Choice Foundation honored it as a recommended read. Book #2, Jack Templar and the Monster Hunter Academy, was also met with strong reviews and sales.

“I started the series as a way to get my 11 year-old excited about reading,” says author Jeff Gunhus. “He just wasn’t connecting with books the way I did when I was a kid. I figured a book where he was the main character would be more compelling.” The experiment worked, according to Gunhus, and his son, Jack, is now an avid reader. 

While the book was written for younger readers, Gunhus describes his reader demographic as ages 8-100. “Most of the reviews on Amazon come from parents who got into the books after reading them to their kids,” says Gunhus. He hopes that Jack Templar will prove to have a universal appeal regardless of age just like the Harry Potter novels.  “I’d be happy with just a small percentage of J.K. Rowling’s audience,” he says, referencing that author’s 450 million copies on print. “But the greatest joy comes from meeting someone who enjoyed the book and who shares that it touched them in some way. As a writer, it doesn’t get any better than that.”

All three books in the Jack Templar series are available online for purchase in both paperback and ebook format. A fun, interactive site for young hunters can be found at www.JackTemplar.com.
