Peridot Press is delighted to announce it will publish Sentinel by Joshua Winning on May 19, 2014.
The young adult dark fantasy story – the first in a trilogy of books – is the debut novel from Winning, a freelance film writer from Cambridge who now lives and works in London.
Sentinel tells the story of a secret society of guardians who are mobilised against the devastating return of centuries-old dark forces. And when 15-year-old Nicholas Hallow’s parents are killed in a mysterious train crash, he is drawn into a world where nothing is quite what it seems.
The author has achieved impressive sales and excellent reviews of a self-published version of Sentinel on Amazon Kindle – and now the gripping story is set for a paperback release in the spring.
Jonathan Barnes, Head of Editorial at Peridot Press, said: “Josh is a fantastic young writer who has great passion for his work. Sentinel is a vibrant, cinematic story with thrilling action and well-drawn characters and we’re delighted to give the book a paperback release under the Peridot banner.
“We were extremely impressed by how far Josh was able to take Sentinel under his own steam, and we are excited to give the book a platform for future success.”
