How The Troubles of Johnny Cannon is more than just a novel....

Hi-ooo! I just realized that I never posted on this blog whenever the book released. Whooops!

Sorry about that.

Anyway, now it's time to get all posty and updatey and professionally and all that fun stuff. So, first, let me show youse guys my big time book trailer video:

Wasn't that prettiful?

And now, let me tell you about some OTHER fun stuff!!!!! Because, although on the surface, my book The Troubles of Johnny Cannon looks like a fun romp and an great action-adventure story, it's something else as well.

It's a tool teachers can use.

In fact, visiting students in schools is one of my FAVORITE things to do. See, I used to be a teacher for middle and high-school students. Plus I have over 18 years of public speaking experience. And putting together an engaging school presentation is one of those crazy things that gets me SUPER excited. I have a 30-45 minute presentation about The Troubles of Writing a Book, in which I tell my story and give the three most important elements necessary for seeing your dream come true. I also have several workshops on writing, on research, and on life-goals.

And I'd love to bring my presentations to your schools.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know what you're thinking. There's got to be a catch. And, sure, I won't be able to do these things for free, just because 1) it takes time away from my writing and 2) it ain't cheap to do anything any more. But I'm trying my best to make it affordable for schools. This includes maybe offering a rate for schools to work together, trying to be flexible when it comes to long distances so that paying travel expenses doesn't get too burdensome, offering some Skype options when nothing else is possible, etc.

But I guarantee you a great presentation that your students won't find boring and that will keep you and everyone else in your school talking even after I'm gone.

But, anyway, all that to say, my book is OUT!!!! And I'd love to come visit your school!!!!
