CHAMPIONS OF THE THIRD PLANET


Hey folks!

I've got a new project I hope you guys will like. It's a novel called CHAMPIONS OF THE THIRD PLANET. It's about these five kids who find a weird black Orb in the woods that turns out to be an alien trap. The Orb flies them to another planet where they get injected with this weird battle formula and have to fight alien monsters in a giant arena or die trying. The main kid is 11, and he's trapped there with his little sister, plus the bully who tortures him at school, plus a 12-year-old science nerd and his sister's 13-year old babysitter. And these five kids have to learn how to get fight together and get along long enough to figure out a way home.

This is one of my all-time favorite projects, along with THE LOST ROOM -- it's a love letter to my childhood and this 70s movie called STAR WARS that I was obsessed with as a kid. So it's this epic space adventure, seen through the eyes of some ordinary kids, and funny at times I hope, but also really personal to me. (Jeez, I like this description, I may add it to the site...)

I'm publishing the book through Inkshares, which is a crowd-funded publishing company. We're taking pre-orders now and trying to get to 750. You can buy a REAL PHYSICAL PAPERBACK copy or an ebook if that's your thing -- I can't tell you what to do...

The first chapter is up if you want to get a little taste, and I'm putting up two more chapters very soon:

By the way, I know Charles was ahead of me here and has already pre-ordered one, which is extremely awesome.

There's also a big contest going on over there sponsored by Nerdist. The top three books become part of the Nerdist or Geek & Sundry imprint, which would be killer. CHAMPIONS is currently in the lead (!) so any pre-orders will help me keep that top spot.

Anyway, I hope you guys will at least check out the first chapter, and I'll update you when I post the next two.

Thanks everybody!

Also, telling you guys first, I put up a video of me and my dog pitching the book in a bit more detail, especially as it relates to my childhood obsession with STAR WARS:

My Lost Room door also makes a quick cameo. It was a street advertisement SyFy made when they launched the show...
