Publishing company announces contract for shifter detective series with accomplished author Majanka Verstraete

NEWTON, Mass. – May 15, 2017 – Monster House Books LLC today announced that it has signed author Majanka Verstraete, to create a young adult shifter detective series called The Adventures of Marisol Holmes, which will be distributed by INscribe Digital.

Majanka Verstraete is a proven author with more than twenty unique works of fiction as well as hundreds of reviews across retailers and Goodreads. A native of Belgium, Majanka’s work focuses on exploring the true nature of monsters: the good, the bad, and just about every species in between. Her young adult books include the acclaimed Mirrorland (YA Dark Fantasy) and Angel of Death (YA Paranormal) series of novels.

At MHB, Majanka is currently developing a new YA shifter series with a fresh take on fierce female detectives called The Adventures of Marisol Holmes. The heroine is the great granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes as well as jaguar shifter royalty. Although she’s still a teenager, Marisol’s unique combination of skills make her perfect for solving paranormal crimes.

“I’m thrilled to add Majanka to the MHB collaborative of authors,” says Christina Bauer, Founder, Monster House Books. “She brings a proven track record of writing excellent YA titles with fierce females. I can’t wait for her to bring the great-granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes to life for readers!”

The first book in the series is due to launch in the Fall of 2018. At least three additional novels are already planned in the series, with one new book launching every six months.
