My New Book-UPDATE/A Bestseller
« on: August 19, 2009, 12:39 AM »
My new children's book "The Runaway Mummy: A Petrifying Parody" hits the New York Times Bestseller List at #9 on 10/25.  That's 2 in a row for me, my last one went to #1 for tow weeks.


not sure why the pic isn't working...tried pulling it from several sources.

Sounds like fun, Mike! I see your stuff all the time at work (which is a library!)

Hotlinking is probably not allowed.

So here is the direct link to the cover:

My kids love your books, if it is not too late, we are going to try to hit the Bookstore on the way home from school today.

 The specific website may have it coded into their site that pictures won't load if hotlinked.

Mike that is great.  I know we snagged one way back when it hit the shelves and have given a couple as gifts during non-stop birthday parties the last few weeks.

My family eagerly awaits the next one for sure.

I wanted to mention that Goodnight Goon is available in the scholastic order forms my kids bring home from school. Pretty cool.

I came home the other night and saw both of your books on my kitchen counter.  My kids (6 and 10) LOVE them.  Congratulations, and keep up the good work!

People, including my family, don't believe that I know you, Mike.  My sons love Goodnight Goon (both were huge Goodnight Moon fans as well) and have really enjoyed Runaway Mummy as well.  Congrats!!!

Nice work. I saw it at Target tonight in the Halloween book section.
