It's pretty simple. Kirkus Reviews said about Proxy: “Whipping Boy + Blade Runner with a sprinkling of The Hunger Games (plus, of course, a dash of A Tale of Two Cities) = a treat for teen SF fans." Marie Lu, bestselling author of the Legend trilogy said: “Put down what you’re doing and read this book. Right now. The complex characters, intricate world, and blistering pace are off-the-charts amazing.” But don't take their word on it.
These hedgehogs want you to buy Proxy and as we know from the internet, hedgehog opinions are the only ones that matter.
This has nothing to do with any of my books, except that I grew up on Calvin And Hobbes and the sense of humor and the deep thoughtfulness of that comic informed most of who I am as an adult, so you know...watch this video. It is impossible not to smile while doing so:
Well, it's happened. The sequel to Proxy is official! It's called GUARDIAN and it will be released on May 29th, 2014!
Thanks to the good folks at Entertainment Weekly's "Shelf Life" blog, you can see the cover of Guardian AND read the first three chapters for FREE, all these months early! They have nice things to say!
My debut YA novel, PROXY, is available this week, and I have A LOT going on to support it, in person and on the internet.
I'm super excited because The Atlantic Wire chose Proxy for their Summer Book Guide, and Publisher's Weekly featured it along with books by Neil Gaiman, Questlove, and Italo Calvino(!) on a list of the Best New Books for this week!
I was playing around at my desk and made six second book trailer for Proxy using Vine. It even has sound!
It is finally happening.
I'm very excited to let you all know that We Give a Squid a Wedgie: An Accidental Adventure #3, is available starting today wherever books are sold!
In We Give a Squid a Wedgie, our reluctant heroes, Oliver & Celia Navel, face their worst ordeals yet: giant SQUID, angry SHARKS, angrier PIRATES, and a CHICKEN. A pirate chicken named Dennis. Also, there are WEDGIES.
So I have a lot of books coming out soon. A stampede of them that threatens to trample me, in fact. It has been a crazy year. I wrote a lot of books and revised a lot of books and, thanks to the vagauries of publishing, and some unfortunate delays in on-sale dates, the stars aligned so that they all are coming out very close to each other. In fact, in the next four months, I will double the number of books I'm publishing!
Here's what's happening:
