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:
Check it out and enter to win a free signed copy of the brand new paperback of We Are Not Eaten By Yaks!
Due to some factors beyond my control, the 3rd book in the Accidental Adventure series, We Give a Squid a Wedgie, has a new publication date in April 2013 (and a new look...more to come on that). You can, of course, pre-order it so you get it right when it comes out.
I apologize for the delay and I assure you, it will be worth the wait!
Here's a random part of the book to whet your appetite:
I'm about to head out on a multi-state, multi-author tour with Jacqueline West (The Books of Elsewhere), Adam Gidwitz (A Tale Dark and Grimm), and E.J. Altbacker (Shark Wars). We've teamed up with the extremely talented Story Pirates to present the “Endangered Authors Tour” — a game-show themed program where horrible things happen to us authors. We'll be visiting schools and bookstores in Texas, California, and New York.
