Do you know a young reader who might like a series of books about farting robots? What about brilliant, problem-solving kids? Or maybe epic, world-saving water balloon battles? What about canine-worshipping extraterrestrials?
If any or ALL of these things sound up that young reader’s alley — or if you think they just might like some action-packed, mystery-tinged stories told with a whole lot of humor and heart — you should know that as of today, the boxed set of my EngiNerds series of Middle Grade novels — the Rogue Robot Collection — is now available in paperback! You can get your set wherever books are sold. And if you don’t see it on the shelves of your local independent bookstore, ask a bookseller to order it in for you. They can, and will — and may even order some extra sets for other customers to consider picking up! As usual, if you want your copies signed and/or personalized, you can order from MY local indie, the Silver Unicorn. Click HERE to do that.
EngiNerds, the first book in the EngiNerds series, was my first published book. It’s been out for about five years now. It was my introduction to the kid lit world, and allowed me to meet so many people, many of which have become dear friends. It’s also the book of mine that I most often hear was responsible for turning a kid into a reader — and turning kids into readers is the main goal of my career. And so, while I’m here, I’d just like to take another opportunity to thank every single human being (educator, librarian, parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, sibling, etc.) who put EngiNerds and its sequels in the hands of a kid, and to thank all the kids who gave the books a read. I hope today’s release of the paperback boxed set helps me turn even more kids into readers, and offers me the possibility to make even more friends.
