FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Stephanie Osborn’s best selling SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE MUMMY’S CURSE is now an award winner. The first book in Osborn’s Gentleman Aegis series within Pro Se Productions’ HOLMES APOCHRYPHA imprint was recently awarded the 2016 Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Award for Best Nonfiction Young Adult Book. Osborn’s thrilling tale of Holmes’ and Watson’s early years as a team fell into the award category due to it being historical in nature, even though not completely non fiction.
“This book,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “is one that has a life of its own, and that’s always something good for any book. It has been an Amazon best seller multiple times since its publication last year and now has garnered a Silver Falchion. The manner in which Stephanie presents not only Holmes, but the entire work is both engaging and fun, thrilling and captivating. It is fantastic that not only are people being exposed to her love for Holmesian tales, but that her work is getting the recognition due it.”
SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE MUMMY’S CURSE occurs within the first year of the famous friendship of Holmes and Doctor Watson. They are still finding their way in the world, with all the troubles that such young men usually have: Financial straits, troubles of the female persuasion, hazings, misunderstandings between friends, and more. Watson’s Afghan wounds are still tender, his health not yet fully recovered, and there can be no consideration of his beginning a new practice as yet. Holmes, in his turn, is still struggling to found the new profession of consulting detective. Not yet truly established in London, let alone with the reputations they will one day possess, they are between cases and at loose ends when Holmes' old professor of archaeology contacts him.
Professor Willingham Whitesell makes an appeal to Holmes’ unusual skill set and a request. Holmes is to bring Watson to serve as the dig team’s physician and come to Egypt at once to translate hieroglyphics for his prestigious archaeological dig.
