(I Also Write Children's Books!)

My publisher did not wait around.  Wow.  Preorders for I Did Not Give That Spider Superhuman Intelligence are already on Amazon!  Release date December 1st.  Check out the cover!

They said they were going for a mix of my Supervillain covers and 1980s album art.  I think that's genius.  Also, I think the goofy blurb at the bottom suits the goofiness of the book.

Below the break is the cover blurb I came up with.  What do you think?

So Many Distractions

So, the book is done, and I think prerelease is in December?  I expect my official edits soon.  You all reacted so favorably to Irene, I think it will be a winner, despite my being concerned by releasing a book in the Supervillain continuity without a child star.

I am about to start the fourth Penny book, Please Don't Tell My Parents I Have A Nemesis.  I have a strong general outline, so it should go fast.  I just need to work out some thematic stuff in my head before I can get to work.  I will, of course, give you folks the first few chapters to check reception!

This is super sweet - a friend saw these in the library of 'Trefoil Academy', a kids' summer camp!

Oh, and I'm a few days late on this because I got unexpected editing notes.  Heart of the Harvester is coming out in an anthology I had totally forgotten about.
