About the Book

A-Dreadful-Fairy-Book-cover-smlA Dreadful Fairy Book

Written by Jon Etter

Narrator: Quentin Q. Quacksworth

Publisher’s Synopsis: Shade the sprite is dreadful at being the perfect fairy. After her treehouse burns to the ground, Shade embarks on a quest, albeit with rather questionable companions, to find a place her outré self can finally fit in—a place of companionship and comfort and, most importantly, positively filled with books. When fantastic ruffians, swindlers, and a pack of ruthless Unseelie hunters threaten to halt her at every turn, can Shade survive the dreadful journey and find a destination she can truly call home?

Ages 9-12 | Publisher: Amberjack Publishing | November 20, 2018 | ISBN-13: 978-1948705141

About the Author


Jon Etter

Jon Etter

Jon Etter grew up in his local library in Forrest, Illinois (population 1,200, not including dogs), and eventually migrated north to Wisconsin, where he has taught high school English for the past twenty-one years. When not teaching or attempting to domesticate his two children, Jon has written for a variety of anthologies and journals. He loved every minute of working on A Dreadful Fairy Book that wasn’t spent with Quentin Q. Quacksworth, whom Jon describes as “the opposite of fun.” For more about Jon, visit him on the web at www.jonetter.com.

About the Narrator

Quentin Q. Quacksworth

Quentin Q. Quacksworth

In his storied, 43-year career as a professional narrator, Mr. Quacksworth has worked on many wonderful, proper pieces of literature. His greatest regret, professional or personal, is his involvement with Jon Etter, whom he describes as “a pugnacious purveyor of puerile prose,” and A Dreadful Fairy Book, which he strongly urges publishers, parents, teachers, and librarians to keep out of the hands of children.

Thanks for following along with us on the A Dreadful Fairy Book awareness tour, sponsored by Amberjack Publishing.
