M.J. Webb (mjwebb) Jake West: The Keeper of the Stones
Jake West - Warriors of the Heynai

I wrote a book for my children. It was hugely successful so I wrote another. The same thing happened so I am writing the third and final chapter of the series. I'm tired, I've sold my motorbike and I'm constantly thinking of ways to market my books.. But, I'm happy.

M.J. Webb (mjwebb) M J Webb is a forty-something father of two from Walsall in England. He is a full time worker and writes in his spare time, though he would love to change that fact. So far, he has penned two novels, ‘Jake West – The Keeper of the Stones’ and the sequel ‘Jake West – Warriors of the Heynai’. A third novel (as yet untitled) will complete the trilogy, though it is a work in progress which should hopefully be finished by the end of the year.
The stories tell of the adventures of fifteen year old Jake and his best friend, Ben Brooker. The teenage boys from Lichfield, England discover a box in Jake’s grandfather’s attic, a box which can not be opened by anyone other than Jake, or a member of his family. Jake opens it by accident for there are no hinges or catches of any description. By doing so, he inadvertently alerts warriors and wizards on distant worlds to it’s existence. Now he is being hunted across worlds. An epic journey has begun on which his life will be in peril every step of the way, and he is about to learn from his grandfather of some strange family secrets.
The action is fast and furious. The stakes can be no higher. If Jake West, the new ‘Keeper of the Stones’ cannot protect them, and restore them, he cannot go home and the future of our world and many others is at risk.
You can buy the novels online everywhere and you can check out M J Webb’s site at
There is a facebook fangroup called fans of Jake West as well as an M J Webb author’s page. He is also on Twitter, Librarything and Goodreads.
For all fans of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings these books are a must. They are a compelling read and the reviews so far have been extraordinary. As with most self published authors, marketing the novels has been hard for M J Webb, given his limited free time and resources. Without the power of a large publisher and a literary agent behind him, it has been hard to reach the masses and let them know of his books, though they have been very successful for self published works. Therefore, anything to help spread the word is invaluable and greatly appreciated.
