"Born in the suburbs of Charlotte, North Carolina, Matthew Newman grew up on fantasy. Whether it was the Harry Potter series, The Golden Compass, or any of the hundreds of books he read throughout his childhood, he was raised to believe in the impossible and the spirit of adventure. In the third grade, he was reprimanded for writing stories in Language Arts instead of paying attention, which just made him do it more. In high school, Matthew established himself as an author with the self-publication of two novels, stories that helped introduce him to the joy and excitement of publishing as a business. After graduating from Duke University with degrees in sociology, markets and management, and creative writing, Matthew returned to his roots and established Sandcrest Publishing, the indie publishing house responsible for the release of Kingdom of Ink and Paper. Matthew currently lives in New York City."

Every book you’ve ever read.
Every story you’ve ever heard.
What if they were all true?
When best-selling novelist Arthur O’Neill is found murdered, high school student Will Morgan assumes his premonition of the event was mere coincidence. But when Will meets a character from one of Arthur’s famous , he l earns there’s more to this man’s writing than just words.
By way of a powerful warrior named Tam, Will is introduced to the World of the Written, a universe parallel to our own where every story ever published by humans comes to life. On the surface, the World of the Written is a realm of fantasy beyond Will’s wildest dreams: one of magic, knights, wizards, and high adventure. However, as Will explores more of this newfound land, he realizes Arthur’s death may have just been the start of something even fiction’s greatest heroes aren’t prepared to face.
“…it’s fitting, in fact, that the ideas behind the World of the Written are as worthy of a read as any narrative. An engaging portal fantasy that lays complex groundwork.” -Kirkus Reviews
“…readers will enjoy being immersed in Newman’s bookish fantasy world.” -BookLife by Publishers Weekly
