BHC Press announced today they will be publishing N.J. Simmonds’s upcoming Indigo Chronicles, a sweeping YA series about love lost and found set against the backdrop of Spain and London. Mixing urban fantasy romance with history and esoteric mystery, the series focuses on destiny and the invisible threads that bind us.
“I’m thrilled to have been signed by BHC Press. They are a great team to work with, and I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to share The Indigo Chronicles worldwide. We have lots of exciting things planned for the series,” stated N.J. Simmonds.
“Young adult fiction is such an important genre, especially in our times. N.J. Simmonds brings a fresh perspective with her writing, and we are ecstatic she has chosen to publish through BHC Press,” stated Joni Firestone, founder/publisher of BHC Press. “We know this series will attract her many fans as well as captivate new readers, too.”
What if every coincidence was a tiny miracle? What if our life was already mapped out before birth? What if someone had the power to change the path we were destined to follow? The Indigo Chronicles explores the concepts of destiny and eternity, as seen through the eyes of Ella and Zac.
THE PATH KEEPER, book one in the series, introduces readers to Ella, who hates her new life in London and is struggling to get over her past—until she meets the mysterious Zac. Little does she know that his secret is the one thing that will tear them apart and force her to live in a world that no longer makes sense.
The Indigo Chronicles will be released under their young adult imprint H2O, and publication for THE PATH KEEPER is set for 2019. BHC Press retains World English rights.
