It's called The 7. Please don't ask "The 7 what?" because that's what the young adventurers need to figure out.
Anyway, first things first, I had to run the proof past the wife and kids, because this is a different direction in writing and I wanted to know if I was on the right trail. It was written for my sons anyway, but I figured if they liked it, some other kids might as well.
Fun enough, they were all addicted. Now it's a super fast read. Just 110 pages and 24 chapters, it's easy to make it through a chapter and the plot moves along very quickly.
I'm redesigning the cover, because the graphic I used didn't look enough like a mirror. And I'm thinking about giving local kids a crack at doing some illustrations. Because who needs to pay an adult, right?
Yes, yes, I'm joking. I have two brothers and many adult friends who could illustrate, but I want this book to be about and for kids. And as the series matures over the next few years, I'd like the illustrators to get a little older as well. That's the initial idea. And hopefully we can inspire many kids to get in on the action over time.
