The book is ready to go! It clocks in at 105 pages long. That includes a few pages worth of pictures, too. I will be printing a few digital copies to test drive the book in the next couple of weeks. But the book, Danny in a Newfangled World, will be available to the WORLD by October. Perfect timing for Christmas. It will be available at select book stores in the GTA and through Amazon.com. More details will follow in September.

I’m polishing up my characters’ voices for the next chapter of Danny in a Newfangled World. And my voice partner is drinking lots of water this week to ensure his narration skills are smooth as chocolate syrup.
Next chapter, Danny starts his crazy cyber-adventure. What kid hasn’t wondered what it would be like to be inside a video game. Watching it on screen has its perks, sure, but living it? Way cooler. Imagine flying through space in a rocket, or jumping effortlessly from one enormous cliff to another to capture bouncing lollipops. Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? But not in a video game.
Then again, could be quite terrifying too. Would you have what it takes to live some of these games that you play? Well, Danny Lenesky is about to find out what he’s really made of. You can listen to the podcast next Friday!
Ten-year-old Danny Lenesky can’t imagine anything more fun in the whole world than playing on his computer.That is, until he gets sucked right into it and lands smack in the middle of a video game.
He zooms like a pinball from one game to another, dreaming of video game glory. Before long, he comes across Jingo, a kind blue mutant, who teaches Danny about the tricks of his virtual world. More alluring, however, is spunky Desmond whose thrill seeking ways lead Danny further and further into the unknown.
Soon, Danny realizes his recklessness has jeopardized Jingo’s life, and it’s almost too late to save him. Forced to decide between friend and fun, Danny abandons the games. But he has to act fast. With Desmond sabotaging his every move, Danny’s race against the clock seems doomed to fail. Pressing on, he knows that Jingo’s fate rests on him and that each decision he makes – no matter how difficult – will determine if he can ever return home.
This cyber-tale for video-game-loving kids will be podcast one chapter at a time. Eventually, it will be available as a real-life book! The author is in talks with her publicist (who is coincidentally herself) to determine the ideal book launch date. Details to follow… one day.
