Introducing: “The Hero’s Guide Heroes Guide (Now with Villains!)”


To celebrate the release of The Hero’s Guide to Storming the Castle, book 2 in the Hero’s Guide saga, the folks at Walden Pond Press and I are launching a very special blog tour. It’s a fact-filled who’s-who featuring all your favorite Hero’s Guide characters (plus a bunch you’ve probably never heard of). This collection of character rap sheets contains loads of original material written just for this blog tour—and tons of info you won’t find in the Hero’s Guide books. Plus, at each of the participating blogs, you’ll have the chance to win a signed copy of Storming the Castle (plus a chance for the tour’s grand prize—a $200 bookstore gift card)!
