Where It’s At: a quick update on All The Things!

There are so few constants in life. Seasons change, the news swirls… But one thing you can count on: It has, once again, been way too long since my last blog post! With that in mind, here’s a quick update on where things stand.

Some people call them galleys. Some people call them Advance Review Copies (ARCs). I call them exciting! They come out before the actual official books to give reviewers, booksellers, librarians, and other wonderfully bookish an early look. Here’s a look at the ARCs for my upcoming middle grade novel ON THIN ICE.

As you can see, they are a veritable rhapsody in blue! I love this book so much. It will published by Scholastic on July 30, 2019. Until then, you can learn more or even preorder it (pretty please!) so that you’ll have it as soon as it comes out at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or from your favorite local bookstore!

Meanwhile, at the Hall of Justice… The galleys of my first graphic novel, DEAR JUSTICE LEAGUE, just flew in from Metropolis! It is a fun, funny blast of a book that shows a whole different side of your favorite heroes, and Gustavo Duarte’s artwork is amazing!

And OK, fine, here is one quick peek inside: Batman’s first encounter with his arch-enemy, The Joker!

This one comes out from DC Zoom on August 6, exactly ONE WEEK after On Thin Ice—it’s gonna be a heck of a summer! You can preorder it at Amazon, B&N, and your favorite local indie. That would be Super, man!

You can also get a free sneak peek at your favorite local comic shop on May 4. DC has printed up these amazing mini books, featuring two chapters (Superman and Hawkgirl!), and is giving them away on Free Comic Book Day! Holy Loot Grab, Batman! Get thee to a comic shop!

That’s the news (for now!) about my upcoming releases. I am so excited for readers to finally get their hands on both books. Until then, I am keeping myself busy finishing up a BIG CHONKER of a YA fantasy novel, filled with fighting dragons and dueling princes and inspired by my trip to misty, mountainous Transylvania. More updates soon (and hopefully not so late this time)! Rock on, young readers! \m/

    Thanks! Yes, and it’s a BIG book too! (Sadly, that means I have a lot of revision to do. 🙁 )
