In other news: Hostess To Stop Making Twinkies!!
For those of you tweeting, commenting and e-mailing for RJ’s painful, gut shot response, remember the earliest we could comment in the strip would be in three weeks. Also, we did a long story line on the same subject earlier this year, or maybe last year, or the year before. I don’t know, they all run together. Anyway, Twinkies is such a well known brand that I feel sure another snack cake company will pick it up.
For RJ’s sake, let’s all hope so.
Behold the official, double super secret probation cover for my middle school illustrated novel, The Odd Squad: Bully Bait (Disney-Hyperion). It’s Due on book shelves (both real and virtual) February 12, 2013. I got the Advance Review Copy last night and it looks pretty sweet. It has weight and mass and occupies actual physical space. In other words, it’s a real book!
It’s for ages 8-12. And anyone who’s emotional development arrested in middle school. Which includes me and I’m pretty sure most Hedge fans.
So, if you are a parent or a grandparent or a great grandparent or a librarian or a book store owner or a lover of Shakespeare spouting ex-hippie school janitor/mentors (you’ll see) please stay tuned. We’ll be promoting more as we get closer to publication date. In the meantime, I have to write Book 2.
It’s due September 15th.
I love my two daughters. And I’m sure they love me. Well,… not sure. How can you be really sure. Who knows? Maybe they secretly despise me.
Maybe they’re bio-engineered robot skeleton invaders and I and millions of other parents have been unwittingly chosen to assimilate them into earth culture so that at a predetermined time they could attack us and rip out our spleens.
But probably not.
