Thistle Bound Press is excited to announce the publication of our first book. Here is the press release.

About the book

Some Glow Brightly, the debut novel from author John Palmer Gregg. The young-adult and middle-grade crossover novel brings together elements of fantasy, supernatural and adventure. It will be published by Thistle Bound Press.

The story centers around 14-year-old Red Snyder. A young man who feels he will never live up to the bravery his father, a war photographer, is known for. Especially when he freezes anytime the stakes are high in a baseball game.

Following a vehicle accident Red discovers a whole spiritual world that exists alongside our own. While travelling back and forth between the two realities he becomes aware of an evil hermit who wants to destroy the barrier between the two worlds, a barrier that is the only thing keeping the physical world safe. He decides he must do everything he can to stop the plan.

Along the way Red recruits some unlikely allies; an older guide and mentor, a child genius, a vigilante who thinks he is a superhero, and an escaped circus performer. Together they must find a way to defeat the hermit and his own allies with the circus.

During the course of the fast-paced novel the danger and pressure the heroes face grows ever darker and more imminent with each passing day. The enemy’s plans will come to fruition soon, and they must act now to prevent world-wide disaster.
