New Release: GOAT CHILDREN by Jordan Elizabeth

Today I'm happy to help announce the release of GOAT CHILDREN by Jordan Elizabeth. I've read and enjoyed her novel, COGLING, and this one sounds interesting too.


GOAT CHILDREN
A young adult novel with a touch of fantasy, love, and imagination versus reality.

When Keziah’s grandmother, Oma, is diagnosed with dementia, Keziah faces two choices: leave her family and move to New Winchester to care for Oma, or stay in New York City and allow her grandmother to live in a nursing home miles away.

The dementia causes Oma to be rude and paranoid, nothing like the woman Keziah remembers. Each day becomes a greater weight and love a harsher burden. Keziah must keep Oma from wandering off or falling, and try to convince her grandmother to see a doctor as her eyesight and hearing fail, but Oma refuses to believe anything is wrong. Resentful of her hardships in New Winchester, Keziah finds herself drawn to Oma’s ramblings about the Goat Children, a mythical warrior class. These fighters ride winged horses, locating people in need, while attempting to destroy evil in the world. Oma sees the Goat Children everywhere, and as Keziah reads the stories Oma wrote about them, she begins to question if they really exist.

GOAT CHILDREN is now available on Amazon from CHBB.

  1. No, I haven't read any of her books. This sounds like a really different kind of story.

  3. I think dementia (and Alheimer's) are very timely topics as our society lives longer. Physical ailments are sometimes staved off longer, but mental problems are becoming more frequent. (My next WIP is about this.) Wishing Jordan much success with her new book! :)

  5. Wow! Goat Children sounds really interesting - I like the way that you've paired a young adult with her grandmother in a realistic way, but with a fantastical possibility.

  9. Wow...interesting. Dementia is a tough condition to watch someone you love struggle with. Very timely though as more and more young adults will be experiencing it.
