I love taking time off from work. Who doesn't? Not only am I NOT slavishly doing what I get paid to do, I'm also enjoying a three week break from school. There's been no financial accounting for me last week, or this week. And I get next week off from that dry material as well.
The last time I had time off, I busily readied Urban Mythos for self publishing as an e-book, and I got it up on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble. This week, I spent some additional time on the aforementioned YA Urban Fantasy and published it on Smashwords.
So now for my next trick. On January 21st, I will publish my earlier novel, The Children of Midian. It needed some serious polish from whence I last looked at it, but I am hard at work readying it. This is an upper middle grade novel, with some slightly darker themes, but still firmly targeted at the middle school reader.
Elliot Hanson doesn’t live in an ordinary town, for it harbors a dark secret that leads him out of our world and into Midian. The thirteen-year-old army brat discovers friendship in a community of lost children, but he also finds a legion of werewolves set against them. Feeding on imagination, these ruthless killers serve an even darker leader who intends to destroy every last child, leaving Elliot with no choice but to fight for their lives.
Look for the e-book on January 21st on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and many other fine booksellers.
