Hello from Lady Jane of The Secret World!
If this article has fallen into your hands then it means that you may be ready to discover that our town of Ashland Oregon is not quite what it seems. There are portals and passageways all over our town that lead to an invisible world right beside our own, and it’s going to be up to some smart Kids (YOU!) to figure out where they are and what’s inside of them.
If you are the curious type and want to find out more about Secret Portals, stop by Tree House Books and ask for a copy of The Map of the Secret World during the month of October. Be quick, because there are 6 puzzle pieces that make up the map that are going to appear through portals all over town and you’ll want to get started solving the mystery as soon as you can before the pieces disappear!
This is also your invitation to find out more about a secret club for kids. This club is for kids that really like books and who are ready to go beyond just reading books, and actually create them together. Send me a secret message to my email and I will send you an invitation when the club portal opens!
