Children’s Book Update

eddieIn case you were curious McMillan for Kids has given me a revision list for my book, Vlad the 4th (or 5th) Grader.  The revisions are not only smart, but doable and I have additional ideas for them to consider. What’s awesome is they like the writing and the humor, but have concerns about the pacing and the ending. Their main concern for the ending, awesomely enough, is that there’s enough ideas for more books. Maybe a series!  I think, maybe, an 8-book series!  We’ll see. For now I’ve got a really clever little vampire story, a powerful agent, a powerful publisher and a chance that’s 100% in my hands.  If I can do this, and I can, this will be a whole new career and a shot in the arm for  C’mon, you didn’t think an opportunity like this would kill the site did you? Nope, if they strike me up – I’ll become more powerful than the game world can possibly imagine. This is the beginning, wish me luck!

  1. When your book gets published, I want you to send me a signed copy of it! –Cary

  2. I’ll be next in line for a signed copy. Mazel tov!

  3. Sounds great, best of luck!

  4. Congrats on moving forward with the book. I’m glad your publisher and agent are good to work with. Best of luck and I can’t wait to order a copy.


  5. Awesome!
    I’ve got a few girls in my house who would love this kind of book.
    Obviously, vampires are “hot” right now, but it’s nice to see that this skews younger and won’t require me to “explain” some things that I’m not ready to explain.

    One question though, how will this help Gamerdad? Obviousdly, it will get people to visit the site, but is there more to it? Did you add “gaming” content to the books? Do Vlad’s parents watch the kind of games he plays?

  6. Good question!

    No, mainly it’ll help GD by giving me some cash and making it MUCH easier to get attention and pitch articles to various snobby magazines. Sort of like getting a day job to subliment/support the night job.
