First off, thank you so much for making THE SECRETS OF THE DEEP launch such a great success. Our readers are AMAZING!
Now, this is one massive book -- the longest in the series so far -- chock full of details (some real/some made up). So, just as we've done for all of the other Gryphon Chronicle books, we are creating a series of Bonus Extras to enhance your reading of the novel. :)
Be warned, though, it might be better to wait until after you've finished to book before perusing the Bonus Extras. Though we've avoided "spoilers," we don't want to ruin any of the surprises waiting for you inside THE SECRETS OF THE DEEP.
When you're ready, just click any of the titles/images below to be taken directly to that particular Bonus Extra.
We hope you enjoy these Bonus Extras. And if you have a topic that you think would make a great addition to the list, please leave us a comment below. Wishing you all the best! Thanks so much for reading our books.

And now, here's a special little treat for you, because I know our readers love strange, weird, and wonderful things. A little old-timey horror music on the theremin, originally known as the Aetherphone. Here's the inventor explaining it. He starts playing your classic haunted house spooky music 15 seconds in so be patient. You'll laugh! Until next time...
Wowee! Want to get a little taste of what it must be like for Jake to take a ride on Red up into the sky? Check this out! Somebody strapped a tiny camera on a real live eagle. Ok, it's not a gryphon, for real, but you've got the eagle head there! You just have to use your imagination. I can't believe how smoothly the eagle flies. Amazing!!! Enjoy ~ G. :)
So, G and I were visiting with family this weekend in the city of Pittsburgh. We were just hanging out in a city park with the little ones, when all of a sudden, we all looked up and saw the one eyed Minion (I think it was Dave??) flying overhead. He was a giant blimp! How fun?
The Blimp was originally used to advertise DESPICABLE ME 2. I guess they're still flying it around. Might as well. The little ones loved it. The big kids thought it was pretty cool too. I found this short clip on the making and flying of the Minion blimp. That's some pretty talented artists...
I'm actually a big fan of the Minions. In an age where movies characters are recycled for decades, the Minions seem really fresh and original. They are funny and diabolical. I don't know about you, but I can do without another superhero remake movie. These little evil doers make me laugh. Have you seen them perform the BANANA SONG?
Gets me every time. Have you had any Minion blimp sightings?
Bananaaaa! Potato-naaaa! WHHHAAAAA? Bee-Do! Bee-Do! Ka Ga!
Well, it's that time of year again already, back to school time. Lots of kids get nervous about what to wear on the first day back to school, so we thought we'd do our part to help. Don't worry, no matter what you wear, you will still look better than these guys.
