Jen Jolliff has written a novel (primarily directed toward juniors) that is set in a place and time when Navigators (orienteers) play an important and respected role. The first few chapters are available for review on her website at She is looking for a contact in the publishing industry who might be interested in promoting the book. Any suggestions or leads would be appreciated.

Can't help with publishing contacts, but I'll guarantee ordering a few copies for my middle school students.

Just bringing this back to the front... Any updates from Jen on if and how this might be published?

Thanks for asking about "Fogrunner." I'm still hoping to go the traditional publishing route and am looking for an agent or publisher who is interested in representing my novel. If you are interested in procuring an advance copy for use with your students, you can contact me directly through my website:

Thanks again to those of you who offered advice and help on this project. I finally have published my navigation-based novel, Fogrunner and you can see more details about it here:

I was fortunate enough to get "preview" copy and it is a very fun book. Put it on you our your family's Christmas list! If you haven't read any young-adult novels, do so, they are rip-roaring reads!

I'm looking forward to reading Fogrunner.

Hats off to Jen Jolliff for seeing her project through. No doubt she navigated through various difficulties and relocated more than once before publishing her exciting Fogrunner book.

And, it's available in time for Christmas gifts for all readers young and not-so-young, in various formats--Kindle e-reader, hardcover and paperback.
