It’s Tuesday and I’m actually getting things done, which means that I’ve shaken off the holiday hangover and I’m back at it.
I’m excited for 2006 and I have been for many months now. The pace of publishing is so glacial that I’ve known that this is going to be a big year for me. It’s the time when all my work in 2005 finally sees the light of bookstores and classrooms across the country.
There are a bunch of books and articles scattered throughout the year, but I won’t go into them now. That’s because I can finally announce that a project close to my heart is finally underway.
This fall the folks at Owlkids Books, will be publishing the Max Finder Mystery Collected Casebook Volume 1, containing ten of the best Max Finder Mysteries and a bunch of great puzzles and bonus materials.
The bright sparks out there will note the ‘Volume 1′ and rightly assume that this is the first book in a series. Right now, there are three books planned collecting 30 of the mysteries that appeared in OWL magazine. I’m really excited about the project and look forward to working with OWL and the comic’s illustrator Michael Cho in promoting the book.
Like all my other work, I’ll have more details and hopefully some artwork to show off in the coming weeks.
From where I
stand sit 2006 is looking pretty good. Hope yours is too.
