Announcing THE DRAGON WAKING -- Coming August 1, 2016
Well... the time has finally arrived! It's my first book, now becoming an actual thing-in-print reality.
So what's it about? This is a middle-grade fantasy, and you might have already made an educated guess that it's about dragons. It starts with a 13-year old girl named Rose living contemporary Boulder City, NV meeting and befriending a dragon named Jade. What's a dragon doing in modern-day Nevada? Getting ready to start a whole lot of trouble, it turns out.
For Thunderstruck readers, this is definitely a story with a lighter tone than you may be accustomed to from me... and nowhere near as much outright heresy. But I think you'll recognize some of the same themes.
It's been a long trip through the process of publishing, and of course in many ways this is really the starting point. I've learned a whole lot of lessons, but patience is probably the biggest takeaway.
The Dragon Waking is published by Albert Whitman & Company. If you're keen, you can even pre-order:
