Press Release- Clean Teen Publishing signs Shannon A. Thompson.


(DALLAS, TX) – February 2015. Clean Teen Publishing announced today a three-book deal with Shannon A. Thompson of Leawood, Kansas. Thompson’s young adult series titled THE TIMELY DEATH TRILOGY, will be releasing in its entirety in 2015 with the first novel— MINUTES BEFORE SUNSET to hit shelves and e-readers in July 2015.

Rebecca Gober, CEO and Publicist for Clean Teen Publishing, says, “We are excited to have Ms. Thompson join our ranks among many other talented authors. Her young adult paranormal romance series puts a totally new spin on the familiar.

Set in Kansas, MINUTES BEFORE SUNSET is the story of two young adults who struggle to survive their paranormal realities while trying to find balance in their human lives. Told through alternating points of view by Eric Welborn and Jessica Taylor, MINUTES BEFORE SUNSET will bring the reader into an age-old war of light vs. dark. Eric Welborn is more than just a rich kid from a small town; he is the descendent of the dark and he’s a shade. His whole life has revolved around his destiny— he must win a century old fight-to-the-death battle against the descendent of the light. On the other hand, orphan Jessica Taylor, is seeking answers about the birth parents she barely remembers. Oblivious of the world of shades and the fight between light and dark, she turns to Eric to help her find out who her parents were and who she is meant to be.

“Starting off 2015 by joining Clean Teen Publishing is energizing and exciting! I am thrilled to be a part of this community, and I look forward to the future possibilities of writing and reading more than ever before.” Says author Shannon A. Thompson.
