King Hugo on Amazon

Thursday April 28, 2011

I’ve been working day and night to finish the art for a new book which will will come out in the spring of 2012. That’s why these blog posts have been few and far between. But I just saw that my next book, King Hugo’s Huge Ego is now available for pre-order on Amazon. I also noticed that the release date is earlier than I thought. According to Amazon, Hugo will be available on July 26th.

I don’t want to give anything away about King Hugo’s Huge Ego, but I can tell you that it’s a fairy tale (you probably guessed that!), it rhymes, it’s 40 pages long and it’s probably the funniest story I’ve ever written. I was inspired to create a fairy tale in part by the great Dr. Seuss. A few of his early books were fairy tales. Remember King Derwin and Bartholomew? But I also had so much fun by adding a villain (Mr. Paine) to The Circus Ship that I decided to challenge myself with this one. Could I write a book where the main character is a bad guy and still make it fun? I’ll let you decide.
