I'm pleased to say that as of today, the first manuscript in a series of mysteries for children (ages 8-12) is done. This is the story I've been writing with my nine-year-old son, and we've had so much fun creating the characters and developing the plot line. He's almost as excited as I am -- and I'm sure his excitement will increase when he reads the whole manuscript this weekend (all at once, seeing his characters coming alive).
The goal is to finish rewrites next week, then send it off to the editor for his special attention.
I'm lining up speaking engagements and book festivals for my son and me, and the media blitz will happen just as soon as possible. Look for more updates on this little book and the series soon.
