Fun stuff happening with Radish Fiction and Wattpad.
Awaited, the second novel in the Wasteland Trilogy, is coming out on Radish Fiction. Just uploaded the first chapter.
You might remember this book (series) when it was published over at Crescent Moon Press. Well, I got all the rights back, so I thought I’d put it out there again.
I’m keeping the same cover in honor of the series. This was the first series my mother in law, who passed away from cancer, got to see the first book in….So, it’s kind of special to me. I hope you check it out.
The other news…WATTPAD!
I’ve got a new story over there called CHARGED. It’s never before published material. And…it’s FREE!!
Head over to Wattpad and check it out.
It’s been so fun over there at Wattpad because I get to hang out with the readers more. You can leave comments directly in the story, which are fun!
Stay tuned for more news about the Wattpad party in February. I’m a featured author over there and have a day that I’ll be doing a post. Actually, one of my characters is….So stay tuned.
Have a GREAT day, my friends.
Beth Vrabel’s new middle grade book is here. Have you checked it out yet? I just love her writing.
Go…no run…to your bookstore to get this awesome gem!
Richie “Ryder” Raymond has a gift. He can find the punchline in any situation, even in his limited vision and prosthetic eye. During the past year at Addison School for the Blind, Ryder’s quick wit earned the respect and friendship of his classmates. Heading to mainstream, or “normal,” school for eighth grade is going to be awesome.
After all, what’s not to like? At Addison, Ryder was everyone’s favorite person. He could make anyone laugh, especially his best friend Alice. So long as he can be first to make all of the one-eyed jokes, Ryder is sure he’ll fit in just as quick at Papuaville Middle School, home of the Fighting Guinea Pigs. But Alice warns him fitting in might not be as easy as he thinks.
Turns out, Alice was right. In just the first hour of “normal” school, Ryder is attacked by General MacCathur II (aka, Gramps’s cat), causes his bio teacher to pass out cold, makes an enemy out town hero Max, and falls for Jocelyn, the fierce girl next door who happens to be Max’s girlfriend. On top of that, Ryder struggles to hold onto his dignity in the face of students’ pity and Gramps’s non-stop practical jokes.
Ryder quickly sees the only thing worse than explaining a joke is being the punchline. But with help from his stuck-in-the-70s Gramps and encouragement from Alice, Ryder finds the strength to not only fight back, but to make peace.
If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, surely you’ve met Alastair. He’s my little buddy who hangs out with me…pretty much everywhere. He’s in a Middle Grade series I’m working on called Realm Jumpers.
Well, I’ve started a new series. The working title (which will more than likely change) is A Pirate’s Grace.
And yes…there’s an owl in it!
She just made her appearance in the story so I figured I’d come to you guys for help with a name!
I don’t have an official blurb about the book yet, but here’s a quick look in case that helps with picking out a name:
A Pirate’s Grace is about about an eleven-year-old “pirate in training” and the thrilling adventure he stumbles into when he rescues a mysterious girl from the sea who claims she fell into his world through the pirate book she was reading.
So, if you have any ideas…leave them in the comments. Who knows, I might just use the one you suggest!
You’ve probably been seeing my little Alastair out and about on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. He even shows up in a VLOG here.
It’s been fun venturing into the world of Middle Grade writing. And you know what? I love it! Now…let’s hope there’s a publisher who loves my story as much as I do, right?
I shared the tagline on my VLOG, but here I’ll share a little bit more here….
Watcher of the Realms is for those who enjoy James Patterson’s Maximum Ride Protector series with a touch of the movie Men in Black.
The boy science created taught the world humanity.
A clandestine group of rebel genetic misfits rescue eleven-year-old Riley from a secret science lab and realize he has uncharted strength and a unique ability to heal people, but his mind has been completely erased.
On his quest to find out what he is, Riley and his new friends are transported to an alien land filled with creatures plucked right from a monster movie. One of those creatures, the King of the Realms, deems Riley’s existence an abomination of nature and declares war with the Realm of the Humans for creating him.
The only way to prevent Earth’s extinction is to find the evil scientists who created him, but with no memory and creatures from other Realms foiling his plans, Earth’s days might be numbered.
So come follow me on Instagram for updates on Alastair’s Adventures.
