The Daughter of the Deep Virtual Tour is fast approaching! We’ve got some inside info that we can’t keep to ourselves any longer. See below and get your tickets before they sell out!
An All-New Adventure
There’s a lot to learn about the book’s underwater world, including the high school devoted to marine science, Harding-Pencroft Academy. Rick will break it down, sharing more about the four houses of Harding-Pencroft and the young heroes who study there.
While we’re on the subject of science, Daughter of the Deep is something of a first for Rick, as it’s rooted in science rather than mythology. Join the tour and learn how the wonders of the ocean informed his writing.
Rick wouldn’t be Rick without a commitment to authenticity. So it’s no surprise that he literally went underwater to prep for this project, going scuba diving in Aruba and Iceland. Fingers crossed we’ll get some good stories, pics, and video.
Also, word on the waves is that Rick’s tour will give a deep-sea view of ocean exploration, with each event getting exclusive video content.
A Legendary Guest
Rick will be joined by none other than Dr. Robert Ballard, the OG ocean explorer. Among his many achievements are major shipwreck discoveries, including the HMS Titanic. Yes, that Titanic. He was a consultant on the book and has much to talk with Rick about, including their mutual source of inspiration, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Speaking of which—
Connection to a Classic
Jules Verne’s timeless underwater adventure looms large in this book’s creation, along with the 1954 movie from Walt Disney Studios that it inspired. We’ll learn on the tour how the new novel is an extension of Verne’s visionary book.
So much to look forward to! Check this link to find out more and get your tickets!
