Epic Tales from Adventure Time: the Lonesome Outlaw, my adventure time novel about Marceline and her adventures with her foster-sister Bonnibel, is available for pre-order!
Logged into my library ebook app and saw that our books had been added! Pretty exciting. :)
The fourth volume of Paul Genesse’s Crimson Pact anthology series, featuring my short story “Return to Sender”, has hit the shelves. “Return to Sender” caps off my friend Gloria Weber’s inter-connected shorts, “Crimson Mail” and “No Mail”, which were published in the first two Crimson Pact anthologies. When a scheduling conflict prevented her from completing the trilogy, she passed the torch on to me. Many thanks to Gloria for letting me take her characters and spew my own issues all over them.
Here’s a brief excerpt,which I hope you enjoy. “Return to Sender” was a lot of fun to write.
Oooo, will Matt get a bittersweet come-uppance? Will Veronica crack, take him back, and make him waffles?! Buy it and find out what happens next!!!! (Seriously, buy it, I get royalties on this one) ;)
As mentioned in my friend Sarah Kanning’s excellent post, my short story Return to Sender is going to be in the forthcoming Volume 4 of Paul Genesse’s The Crimson Pact anthology series. Return to Sender is a sequel to two flash stories, Crimson Mail and No Mail, written by Gloria Weber. Bunches of thanks to Gloria for trusting me with her characters! I had an incredible amount of fun writing the story. I’ll update as soon as I know the official release date for Vol. 4.
If you can’t wow with your wit, you may as well go for the cheap laugh.
I’ll be attending a signing for the Fraggle Rock Vol. 1 hardcover at the Archaia booth on Saturday, April 2, alongside fellow Fraggle author Sam Humphries. The signing is between 1:00pm and 2:30pm. I’m really excited, so if you’re a Fraggle Rock fan and you’re planning on attending, be sure to come on by with your books! :)
The first volume of the Vampire Academy graphic novel is available for pre-order on Amazon. I wrote the script adaptation and Emma Vieceli was selected as the book’s artist. I can’t wait to see her interpretation of all the characters!
I was a bit hesitant when I first heard about the project (vampires? In a school setting? So it’s like Twilight crossed with Harry Potter?) but the book surprised me. The main character, Rose Hathaway, is a rough-around-the-edges bodyguard-in-training who never once devolves into a Sue (she screws up ALL THE TIME and has to face serious consequences for her screw-ups; I’ll also be the first to admit that I have a soft spot for characters with anger-management problems *cough* jo, little women *cough*). The core of the story centers around a strong female friendship, and I found Mead’s treatment of this friendship to be a welcome change of pace from the passive aggressive back-stabbing and bickering over the menz typical to many YA books. Though Rose and Lissa have their disagreements, at the end of the day they ALWAYS have each others’ backs.
I consider myself lucky to have been tapped to handle the script-writing for this project, and I hope fans of the novels are happy with the adaptation. I’ve been given the go-ahead to begin the adaptation for the second novel in the series, and I’m looking forward to the experience.
I’m packed and ready to leave, at a truly ungodly hour tomorrow morning, for two weeks of fun at the writer’s workshop in Kansas. Wish me luck! :)
CBR has posted an interview with me and Jake Myler! The interview was conducted over the phone and I was INCREDIBLY nervous, for no good reason of course, since the interviewer, Steve, was perfectly nice and easy to talk to. I dunno, hopefully I didn’t ramble too much! It was great to be able to talk to Jake, as well. I have a lot of respect for his artwork. High quality stuff!
