It's Launch Day for Explorer Academy #6!
It's here! It's here! Today, we send THE DRAGON'S BLOOD, the sixth title in my fictional Explorer Academy series for National Geographic, out into the world!
In this adventure, the explorers embark on their most daring missions yet, while Cruz's search for the seventh cipher leads him to an ancient Chinese city and right into Nebula's hands! Will Cruz, Emmett, Lani, and Sailor be able to escape this time? Without giving away too many secrets, I can tell you that with just one more book to go in the series, I tried to pack plenty of twists and turns into this tale, including revealing a major villain!
You can purchase an unsigned copy of THE DRAGON'S BLOOD wherever you shop for books or order online through the Bookshop.org page of The Neverending Bookshop.
For a PERSONALIZED SIGNED copy of the book, please contact The Neverending Bookshop directly at (425) 415-1945. Be sure to let Annie Carl and her staff know who you'd like the book signed to. I'll be stopping by the bookstore in the coming days and look forward to signing a copy for YOU!
Also, another one of my favorite indies, Brick & Mortar Books in Redmond, WA, has signed copies of most all of the Explorer Academy books in stock, so you can fill in your collection or start from the beginning. To place an order call (425) 869-0606.
In other news, I'm happy to be among the nominees for FAVORITE AUTHOR in this year's Kids' Book Choice Awards, the only national book awards program where the winners are selected by kids and teens. It's hosted by Every Child A Reader, sponsor of Children's Book Week. There are some gifted writers in my category, so this is one where I can honestly say, it's an honor just to be nominated, but I'd be even more thrilled to get your vote! Kids ages 3 to 18 are eligible to cast ballots (adults may help them), and voting runs through November 14th, 2021. Click HERE to vote (Google Chrome seems to work best for this one).
Many thanks for your support and as always ...
Keep reading, keep dreaming, and keep exploring!
