For the last two and a half years, my original creation Maddie Mckenszie turned from a few whimsical sketches on Christmas Eve in 2010 to a starring in her very own Children's book in 2012. Of course, getting noticed has been the hardest part of making this book. I'm not going to give up. Never. It's a marathon, not a sprint. As Walt Disney once said, "All our dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them."
Today, I have two major announcements to make about my children's book series "Maddie Mckenszie". (Yes, I said SERIES, "The Most Annoying Little Sister" is just the beginning.) First, I am proud to formally introduce to the world my BRAND NEW book. The title of this book will be…
Maddie Mckenszie and the BAD Birthday Party Manners
If you haven't figured it out yet, we get to see little Maddie celebrate her 5th birthday! However, let's say last year's Birthday party was…a little rough. She had a nasty Temper Tantrum and a BIG mess was made. Maddie this year wants a fancy tea party for her Birthday. Obviously Maddie's parents and big sister Margaret are a bit hesitant in making those wishes come true, but they all approve it on ONE condition - her manners MUST IMPROVE. Maddie's friends and family assist her in manner lessons which may or may not involve disastrous results. Is outside help needed? Will they make Maddie turn from a little brat into a distinguished young lady in a short amount of time? Find out THIS SUMMER!
Right now, the book is about more than 70% done. I am TARGETING a mid to late July 2013 release via Amazon exclusively (It's much faster to put out my title that way) by paperback. The DIGITAL version will follow shortly after also on Amazon. Other digital and hardcopy formats will follow in the future.
Now for the SECOND big news of the day. For the very first time, Maddie Mckenszie will be featured at a convention! My books will be featured at "Intervention - The Premier Showcase of Online Creativity." in Rockville MD (That's near Washington D.C. for those not familiar with the area.) Friday August 23-Sunday August 25 in their Artist Alley. This is my first EVER AA appearance so I'm extremely stoked and nervous at the same time. I look forward to seeing you there and checking out my books.
By the time August rolls around "Maddie Mckenszie and the BAD Birthday Party Manners" will be ready and of course be sold at Intervention along with my original title "Maddie Mckenszie: The Most Annoying Little Sister Ever!"
So once again, two big announcements: Brand new Maddie Mckenszie book on the way and featured at Intervention. If you want to know when the book comes out, please follow @maddiemckenszie on twitter for updates or check out maddiemckenszie.com.
