Apprentice House Press Opens Gate to Pre-Orders

Now you can pre-order Setting the Family Free directly from the publisher!

Apprentice House is publishing Setting the Family Free on October 1, 2019. It’s been available for pre-order on Amazon’s website for about a month. Prefer to buy your books directly from the publisher instead of Amazon? Now you can pre-order your copy directly from the online Apprentice House bookstore to make sure you’re among the first to receive it when it’s ready to ship. Pre-orders should arrive well before the official release date.

Setting the Family Free follows the release of a private reserve of exotic animals into a rural community and examines what happens—to the animals and the people involved—when the animals are put on more equal footing with the people.

Here’s what you should prepare for when ordering your copy of Setting the Family Free, straight from the Apprentice House website:

The loner who collects unusual things. The private reserve of exotic pets released into a rural Ohio community. The estranged wife who loves the animals like family. The caretaker who knows the beasts are dangerous. The Sheriff and his team of experts who must hunt the creatures down. The animal advocate who winces at the spectacle. The celebrity zookeeper who knows what must be done.

This story expands through the innovative use of multiple narratives, news broadcasts, newspaper articles, press conferences, political tapes, and quotes from experts, eyewitnesses, and those closest to the unfolding events. Who are the heroes; who are the victims? Who gets to decide?

Don’t be taken by surprise when the animals are released—pre-order your copy of Setting the Family Free now.
