Shadow over England!

PROVO, UT—Jolly Fish Press (JFP) is excited to announce the acquisition of Elsie Park's debut novel, Shadows of Valor, a beautifully written historical novel set in medieval England.

In Shadows of Valor, Park throws the reader into a quiet medieval town. On the surface, the town is content and booming, but within its roots, something dark is stirring. This darkness threatens to overpower the once-peaceful town, until a mysterious figure appears: The Shadow.

Blurring the psychological haze of justice and revenge, Park's debut novel brings new meaning to the Dark Knight. As the legendary shadow of Graywall is summoned to protect the spawning deceit of the kingdom, the reader is taken on a chivalric adventure through the muddy and mired streets of medieval England, where evil is as inescapable as the shadow that lurks behind its walls.

From a wildland firefighter to a security guard, police officer, and receiving a degree in botany and zoology, Park has done it all. It was only a matter of time before she wrote her first novel. While on a hiatus to Italy, Park was inspired by the thick presence of ancient and medieval history. She felt it in its walls, and slowly, yet surely, a story was born.

Shadows of Valor will be released September 7, 2013!


  1. That sounds like an exciting story :) Congratulations and well done!

    1. Rachel, I have to apologize for not responding to your sweet comment posted back in June. I was so new to social media that I don't think I even knew HOW to respond at the time. I'm doing so now because I want you to know that I appreciate your enthusiasm and support :-)

  2. I Love it! Can't wait to read it. Congratulations on the publishing.

    1. Wow! Thanks so much, Kezia!!! July seems to be arriving SLOWLY *laugh*, but I'm excited for the release date. I'm trying to write another medieval story, but it's harder this time around with three kids instead of one like I had with the first book. I wouldn't trade my girls for the world though.
