Happy Friday Junior! There are so many exciting updates, and I can't wait to share!
First off, let's talk Book 12! It's done! Well, not done as in, "for sale", but done as in written and edited. I've been working a bit today on the illustrations, chapter headings, etc. and I do believe I'll place it up on Amazon for pre-order, with a delivery date of November 1st.
I know it can be really hard to know when your kid's favorite authors have new books coming out, so I'm going to put a link here. If you click it, you can follow me on Amazon, which means you'll get a notification when a new book is published. I do this for my kid's favorite authors, and while I don't usually get a notification until a couple of weeks after it's been released, it's still easier than me having to remember to look for new books. #imlazylikethat
Second thing, and I'm super excited about this! My oldest has been asking me to write a series about Minecraft, so I've started an outline that I'm pretty pumped up about! I love the story I've got laid out, I love the characters, the plot, and the resolution. It's looking like it'll be just three books, (I say JUST because WK is now at 12, with at least another 4 planned), and it'll be shorter, perfect for kids who aren't ready to commit to 250 pages of words. I'm thinking 100 pages, but since I haven't started writing yet, that's subject to change. I'll keep you updated! Oh, and this book series isn't going to have any pictures. If you love the pictures, you have my apologies that you won't get any, but honestly it's the WORST part of writing for me, and it makes my books more expensive because apparently it costs Amazon more to print them, which makes sense. Anyhow, no pictures, none!
Third - and this will probably happen before the Minecraft series, I've started a book for the younger set, with loads of pictures (one every page or two), and a fun story for kids who love Minecraft, but just really aren't going to sit down and read even 100 pages on their own. (I'm looking at my 8 year old right now). I'm thinking 30-40 pages, tops, and something your little ones can sit down and read on their own, just like their older counterparts.
That's all for now! I'll let you know as soon as I have a link up for Book 12, but for now, plan on that November 1 release date!
Have a great weekend!
