The first Storytime reading of Tamora Carter: Goblin Queen starts this Friday, April 10, at 8 p.m. over on my Facebook Author Page. I’ll be reading two chapters each week for the next ten weeks. As with previous Storytimes, I’ll also post the video on my YouTube channel.
This is a brand new, never-before-shared middle-grade fantasy novel. Here’s the synopsis from the FB Event:
Twelve-year-old Tamora Carter, known as T-Wrex in the roller derby world, is leaving practice one night when she spots two funny-looking, funny-smelling, strangely-attired people in the parking lot. These people turn out to be goblins…goblins who might know what happened to Tamora’s missing friend Andre, one of three children who’ve vanished from Grand River.
Aided by her autistic older brother Mac and his consummate knowledge of fairy tales, as well as a high school cheerleader named Karyn, Tamora sets out to rescue Andre and the others. But the closer she gets, the more dangerous her enemies become…
Over the next ten weeks, I’m also planning to do a Kickstarter to produce a print and ebook edition for everyone who wants their very own copy. I’ve contacted several potential cover artists, and put together a graphic I’ll be using in the meantime.
More information to come. For now, I hope some of you will be able to tune in Friday night for what I hope will be a lot of fun!
