Release Day of FINN'S CHOICE

Welcome to the world, boyo!

Today marks the official release of the final book in the ADVENTURES OF FINN MacCULLEN series. Thank you to all my friends, fellow authors, and family members who have tagged along with me on this adventure. I thought I'd share a wee piece from the Acknowledgement page:

Ah, Dear Reader, it’s been a high joy and great pleasure to have shared Finn’s and Gideon’s adventures with you. Strange, is it not, that so much could happen to one boy in the course of less than a year’s time?

I want to thank all of you who have read and recommended these books to others. You’ve made my books a success by spreading the word of Finn’s adventures. In a way, you’re like the bards of ancient times—sharing the tales of heroes and heroines with others. A happy thought, eh?

Will there be more tales of Finnegan MacCullen and Gideon Lir? Yes, in a way. You see, once you’ve read a book, those characters continue on in your head (they certainly have occupied a great deal of my mindspace for the last four years) and I am more than happy to pass them to you for safekeeping. 

Promise me you’ll take care of them.

My Current Reads

I don't know about you guys, but my reading is all over the place right now. Which usually means I'm working on my own book. Reading both inside my genre (middle grade) and outside my genre (almost anything) helps me write better. I don't why. Maybe the  balance?

I also like to read two books at the same time. That's something I started doing over the last few years. Weird. My default mode used to be to concentrate on one thing at a time. Funny how our thinking changes over time, no? 

So, what are you reading? The books I posted here are all winners if you need suggestions. Feel free to leave suggestions for me, too.
