"Revenge of the Star Survivors" conquers the media universe
Well, there have been a few mentions of the book in various spots around the web, at least.
First and freshest, there is a conversation with author Robert L. Fouch over on his blog. Rob's book is Christmas Carol & the Defenders of Claus, which is possibly a legal thriller but probably a middle-grade novel that everyone will enjoy a lot. Rob -- the latest in a series of successful middle-grade authors who got their start sitting next to Mike at a newspaper early in their careers -- extracts the truth about writer's block and also posted a really embarrassing photo. So check him out. And buy his book.
If you attended the University of Kansas, you have now had two chances to read about Revenge of the Star Survivors. The Jayhawk Journalist did one of the first, and now the Kansas Alumni magazine has one of the nicest. Thank you, Kansans, and Rock Chalk! (This is sort of like a secret password among Kansas people ... just ask one of us, and we will be happy to explain. At length. Did you know that the Kansas state motto is Ad Astra Per Aspera -- "To the stars, through difficulties"? That could be Clark's motto, come to think of it.)
Finally, over at the Texas Book Festival's site. Emily Vernon has been "Reading Our State." When she got to Dallas, she found all kinds of great writers, and also Mike. She noted that "Revenge of the Star Survivors resonates with children and adults alike." For which we say -- thank you, Emily.
Speaking of the Texas Book Festival -- it's a great event for anyone who loves books. Mike is ecstatic to be scheduled for a panel Nov. 5 with two best-selling authors; check the festival site soon for details.
Mike has several public appearances coming up in October; check the events page for details. Hope to see you there!
