About this project

I'm a self-published author with a grand story to tell over a series of young adult novels. The first novel "The Sixth Key: From the Secret Files of The Magic Castle" is finished. The second novel is halfway done and I need help to support my family while I finish my series.

Here's a synopsis of the first novel:

Can you keep a secret? Then maybe you can work at the world's most private club. Hidden in the file cabinets are the secrets and mysteries from a thousand magicians. Join Josie Turner as she discovers that her summer job is anything but ordinary. "The Sixth Key" is a secret journey into the hidden world of magicians. While working at The Magic Castle, a real club for magicians, Josie discovers a mystery over a century old. Buried within the hidden catacombs of the old mansion she follows a trail of tantalizing files that tell the story of young Jack Ransom, the dark magician Mr. Ree and their quest to find 7 lost keys. Each folder takes her closer to the truth... Filled with fascinating characters, exotic locales and exciting action, "The Sixth Key" is an adventure you won't forget. You'll journey with Jack as he his whisked away from school on his father's magnificent Engine 17, a train with as many secrets as a magician. Piloted by the talented Mykro, you'll race along the tracks with Jack and Mr. Ree as they follow in the footsteps of the greatest magician that has ever lived. As Jack gets ever closer to uncovering the truth of the lost keys, Josie finds herself discovering that she, too, has secrets to reveal. In the end, worlds will collide and the magic of family and friendship will light the way. "The Sixth Key" is perfect for the whole family with rich values, exciting chases and the wonder of faith. Climb aboard Engine 17 for a ride you won't forget...and uncover the magic of "The Sixth Key." "The Sixth Key" features a foreword by world famous magician Ed Alonzo, who has toured the world with Britney Spears and appeared on "Saved by the Bell." He continues to perform miracles before stunned audiences nightly. Created and published with the full permission of the world famous club for magicians, The Magic Castle. Once you step inside, you discover that magic is real. You can Like "The Sixth Key" on this page and find us on Facebook. If you've purchased this book, please write a review.

The second book picks up right where the action left off and sets off at a breakneck speed to another dazzling conclusion.
The ultimate goal is to show my kids that anyone with a story to tell can write a book. There's no magic formula - all it takes is inspiration and drive.
Help me make my dream come true and join the team on Engine 17!
Your pledge goes right to the project - without a publisher I have to purchase every book to send out to reviewers and people in the industry. It's a very expensive undertaking and I can't do it alone.
You can check out my personal Jeff Tucker Facebook page or my book's page under The Sixth Key and ask me any questions.
Thank you for your time!

Risks and challenges

I have finished the first book in the series and am currently working on the sequel. I write when I'm not working full time and being both a parent and a husband - so you know I have tons of free time! I plan on having the second book ready to go after Summer 2013 but delays may come up....thanks for your patience!
