I received an announcement earlier this month that Whiskey Creek Press has launched a children’s imprint: Wee Creek Press. How exciting! As you know, I’m a children’s author, so it’s great to see new children’s book publisher’s pop up. Here are the books listed as of right now:
2013 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards, Bronze Medal, Pre-Teen Fiction.
Right now, life isn’t so good for eighth-grade point guard Josh Lumley. As anyone in the tiny northern Minnesota town of Orville will tell you, hockey rules. That means Josh and his basketball teammates catch flak from just about everyone—students, teachers, even the locals at Fat Fern’s Donut Hole. But all that’s about to change. Populated by a cast of wacky eccentrics and an unforgettable team of middle-school misfits, Game Face will capture the imagination of anyone who roots for the underdog.
Frantic about his missing wife, Adam Reese travels to a small island off the coast of Canada with their thirteen year old son, Sean. There the two learn that a major new animal discovery was made while Mary was filming a documentary on polar bears for Planet X. Now members of that film crew are disappearing, one by one. Is it because the documentary is now worth millions? Not any amount of money or new animal discovery drives Adam on. Adam won’t give up finding the love of his life, Mary, especially for the sake of their son. Somehow, Adam must rescue Mary from the fanged creature that has snatched her out of the cold, freezing snow. He must save her from the white-haired Bigfoot, the Yeti…the monster of the ice.
Jaclyn Anderson is too pissed off to mourn her brother’s so-called suicide and is determined to figure out what really happened to Sam. She enrolls at Trinity Preparatory College under a false name to get the answers no one else is looking for.
Jaclyn needs help with her growing list of suspects, and with a little pressure, she convinces Sam’s floor advisor, Ryan, and Sam’s roommate, Colin, to help. Jaclyn soon learns she has to question everything she knew about her brother when she uncovers more then she planned. Her investigation leads her into a dangerous world and she soon discovers that some students will do just about anything to succeed.
With too much at stake, she can’t afford to be distracted by her growing attraction to Ryan. If Jaclyn wants justice for her brother’s murder, she’ll have to dig deeper to get the evidence needed to prove to everyone what really happened to Sam.
