In January of 2011, when my first middle-grade/YA book, How to Slay a Dragon, was published by Bell Bridge Books, a date was set for the release of the second story: a date of January, 2012, a full year away. It looked as if the full Journals of Myrth series would not be available for two more years. What’s worse: Bell Bridge Books began to grow, and soon they were handling far more authors and titles than anyone would have predicted. Consequently the second Journals of Myrth story, How to Save a Kingdom, arrived slightly late, debuting in February of this year instead of January.
But then plans were announced to release How to Stop a Witch, the third (and last?) of the Journals of Myrth series, by August. Having just those revisions ahead of me, plus the full-time job, my web master duties, my Space Coast Writers’ Guild responsibilities, my feeble marketing efforts, and my busy family life, I was desperate for something to do. I introduced Orson Buggy’s Lessons for Losers, the first of a new Bumpy Daze of Orson Buggy series for middle-grade readers, in April of this year, then dusted off one of my older works and put out Hanging by a Thread a month later. Now, well before the holidays, I have released the fifth and final book of 2012: Orson Buggy’s Separation Anxiety.
DEAL NEWS: With the release of the second Orson Buggy book, the Kindle version of the first has been reduced to just $.99.
