Jack and Noah's Big Books

A ridiculous website devoted to a ridiculous book series

A productive August

I could get hit by a truck any day now, but I'm pleased to announce that I've begun writing my second book, Jack and Noah's Big Election.  Before you start pre-ordering the book for this year's Christmas gifts, you should remember that it took me over five years to publish my first book.  However, I learned a few things along the way, so I'm hopeful I can complete the second book in a more timely manner.  I even wrote an outline for this book, which means that I already know how it's going to end... and I think my sixteen fans will enjoy it.  Two weeks ago I started the first draft and now have finished over twenty chapters, and I'm trying to write every day at 5:30 a.m.  Ugh.  That's sleeping time.  

As you can imagine, my kids are thrilled that I'm writing a second book.  I've printed off the first one hundred pages of my first draft and... none of the kids have bothered to read any of it yet.  It's just sitting there in our living room collecting dust.  

Here's a few hints about what is in the second book. Crazy Luke becomes even crazier.  Jack and Noah both dream of becoming music stars.  Noah runs for student council against a new character, Audrey Mackarel.  You know, like the fish.  Noah still eats a lot, Greta is still smarter than any boy, and there's a new pet in the Taylor house.  Third grade can be exciting, but third grade for Jack and Noah is downright crazy.  

While you're waiting for the second book, feel free to re-read the first book.  In Jack and Noah's Big Day, the big birthday party falls on Sunday, August 17 -- that's just seven days from now.  Most of you are heading back to school, so celebrate the end of summer by reading one last book!
