I am not dead. That is today’s announcement.
Actually, today’s announcement is (possibly) even better than that.
The reason for the last few months of blog silence is…(drumroll, please)…
Book 3 is almost done!!!
In fact, this announcement is being made in a quick escape from the writing cave. Then I’m back to moving paragraphs, analyzing character motivations, and wondering how on earth I got so many prepositional phrases into that one random sentence. And how on earth to get them out again.
But all YOU need to do is get excited for Book 3 of The Voyages of the Legend, coming early summer 2016!!!
This will be second-to-last volume in a projected series of 4 books. Writing it has been a journey, but I hope you’re really going to love this new story.
To celebrate the release of this book, I’m also excited to announce that Books 1 and 2 are getting a new look! These second editions will feature exciting new covers, an awesome new map, and even some bonus features, like discussion guides for easy use in classrooms or book clubs. The first editions will be retired when the second editions go live (hopefully near the end of this month), so if you want a first-edition copy, don’t wait! You can find one in select Bay Area bookstores or on Amazon.com.
Wondering where to get your books signed this spring? You’ll find me at the Bay Area Kids’ Book Fair (Silicon Valley edition) on April 16 and the Bay Area Book Festival on June 4-5: both of which are amazing events and free to the public. Keep an eye on my News and Events page for even more upcoming fun. There are also still a few more months left in the school year, so if you’re a public, private, or homeschool co-op teacher interested in an author visit, send me an email!
And now…back to the writing cave.

So excited for you, Alina! I’m truly happy you are alive, and also that Book 3 is alive and well. I hope that not too many peanut butter cups were harmed in the writing of the novel!
Thank you, Denise!! I am happy to be able to vouch for my own well-being, but not sure I can say as much for the peanut butter cups…
Very exciting news! All of it. Including you not being dead, though when it comes to getting a book released, it sure can feel that way. 😉
True! Most books have me feeling rather like a zombie by publication day…
