Well, I’ve been a naughty little blogger and haven’t made many posts in the last several months, but I hope to correct that in the months ahead. Many new books are in the works and I’ll keep you posted about those as news surfaces!
In the spirit of that, I’d love to share the cover sketch for a new book that David Barneda and I are developing. It’s called PIRATES VS COWBOYS and will be published by Knopf sometime next year. Here’s the cover sketch:
The rest of the book is shaping up awesome, with lots of fishy squishy pirates and rootin’ tootin’ cowboys, culminating in an bang-up showdown of epic proportions.
I’m also keeping busy doing many school visits this year. I had a fantastic time with the 4th and 5th graders of Sherwood Elementary in Highland Park, IL last week. Thanks to that gang for making me feel so welcome.
I’ll report in again real soon! I promise!
