Moby Clique is out!

This week the third installment in the Bard Academy series, Moby Clique, hits stores! You can actually already order it on Amazon.

Yes, Amazon jumped the March 4 release date a tad. The only reason I know this is because my Dad called to tell me the books he preordered arrived in the mail already. Without Dad, I'd honestly have no idea when my books really come out.

Moby Clique is already getting some good buzz, so I hope that continues!

In other Bard news: the Bard Academy series has been option for a possible movie or TV show. Does this mean it will be the next Buffy the Vampire Slayer and will I retire on a giant estate in Hawaii like Magnum PI's myseterious employer? I sure hope so! At any rate, these things take a long time to develop, so there probably won't be any news right away, but you never know. Maybe I'll be hiring mustached bodyguards in short-shorts to drive my Ferrari around before I know it.

Keep your fingers crossed!

I also get a lot of questions about a possible Book Four. Right now, I don't have a contract for book four in the series, so whether there will be a fourth book is anyone's guess. Although, more specfically, I'd wager it's the guess of my publisher's accountant. I never know what that guy is thinking. I can hardly make heads or tails of my royalty statements. Honestly, they're like trying to read Greek. Granted, I suck at math, but even my husband who has a PhD in physics and number crunches for a living says they are impossible to follow.

I'm guessing if Moby Clique does really well, they'll ask for more, so pass the word among your friends!

Oh, and I'm giving away ten signed copies of Moby Clique, but you have to enter by March! (I know that's less than 24-hours away). Head to www.bardacademy.com for more details!

Yeah, Cara! I'm so envious of all your titles, they're so cool. Hope Moby is a whale of a success (lame, I know, my punning around large sea creatures isn't that great).
