Okay, close your eyes and imagine some trumpet fanfare. Now open them so you can keep reading. Ha! Caught you! You weren’t following my instructions, otherwise how would you have read the direction to open your eyes?! But I digress… Okay, do the trumpet thing again, but with your eyes open. Dah-dah-dah-DAH!

Why all the fanfare, you ask? Because I’m announcing my very first picture book: This is Not That Kind of Book!

What kind of book, you ask? Not that kind. What kind? Whatever kind you’re thinking of.

This is Not That Kind of Book will be illustrated by Ben Mantle, the guy who drew the pictures for this book:

And this book: Pretty nice, right? If you want to find out more information, try going to the Upcoming Titles page on this site. Maybe you’ll find some there, maybe you won’t. I’m just that kind of guy.

Those of you who have visited this site before might realize that I’ve made a little update to the “Books” pages. The “Worst Thing About Saving the World” page has been replaced by the “Upcoming Titles” page, which has info on The Worst Thing About Saving the World as well as the book, Perilous Journey, which will be coming out next year—before The Worst Thing About Saving the World. The “Upcoming Titles” page also explains (since so many of you have asked… and asked… and asked…) why Perilous Journey will be coming out before The Worst Thing About Saving the World. I’ve also gotten rid of that cheesy, old-computer-font placeholder image that many of you seemed to hate so much. I think the whole page looks much nicer now, really. So thank you for complaining. The important thing, though, is that I have a new book coming out next year! So be prepared for many months of teasers, trailers, and tempting tidbits about Perilous Journey coming your way on this very site. Excelsior!

 

 

This fake cover is kaput.

Hey, look at you, scrolling all the way down to the bottom! Good for you! Congratulations on being so thorough!
