The Full Monty… Secret Project Revealed
Yes folks… it’s time to reveal all about that Secret Project I’ve been going on about for ages. So…
[insert drum roll]
I’ve been working on a new series of kids books called…
YOU CHOOSE is a series of interactive books where the reader gets to make key decisions about how the story progresses. Numerous intertwining story paths and a plethora of different endings (many of them resulting in certain death), combined with a variety of genres and an odd assortment of really weird characters should provide a roller-coaster ride of a reading adventure. 🙂
As a kid, I loved reading the old Choose Your Own Adventure books. And over the years, I’ve read a variety of different takes on the style, from the Pick-a-Path books to the more recent Interactive History Adventures, and even one of the Doctor Who: Decide Your Destiny series. So I am VERY EXCITED about having my own series. And they have been a lot of fun to plot out. Check out my whiteboard for The Treasure of Dead Man’s Cove…
The first two books come out in May from Random House Australia — The Treasure of Dead Man’s Cove and Mayhem at Magic School. They will be marketed for middle to upper primary… but I reckon they’re fun for ‘kids’ of all ages. 😉 The wonderful covers and internal illustrations are by James Hart (check out his site, he does awesome work.)
The next two books will be released later in the year. Book 3 is currently going through the editing process and I’ve almost finished Book 4. More info about them later.
I can now breathe a sigh of relief. I cannot express to you, dear reader, how difficult keeping this secret has been. I am so pleased to be able to shout about it from the rooftops.
