Froonga Planet & St. Patrick's Day

Frazz and Grunfloz return to Earth in this wild sequel to Lunchbox and the Aliens. It's a few days until Christmas, and while his parents are away at a convention, Nate and his basset hound, Lunchbox, have to assist the aliens in stopping a hostile invasion. But first they have to survive the Mill Ferron Fruitcake Festival and Great-Aunt Nelly's entry in the bake-off...

What the reviewers have said:

"Nothing says 'Christmas' like an alien-infested fruitcake that sucks the flavor out of everything it touches..." --School Library Journal

" silly and fun to read as the first..." --Kirkus Reviews.

We only have a few autographed hardcovers left in stock--order today!

By the way, happy St. Patrick's Day!
(Who says I can't plug a Christmas book today?)

Speaking of St. Patrick's day and spring break, many readers have asked me if I'm planning another Lunchbox book.  The answer is, well, yes and no.  Yes, I'm halfway through a new story that involves Lunchbox, Nate, the aliens, and spring break.  No, I don't know when or if it will be published--I have to finish it first!  I will, however, be including little tidbits of information in this blog about the Scwozzwort universe from time to time, in a feature called Excerpts from the Encyclopedia of Everything Else.  Readers of Lunchbox and the Aliens will recognize that title as one of the many sources of information dumped into Lunchbox's brain during his first encounter with the aliens.

I'm also working on two new books.  One involves a middle school chess club, cows, and time travel; the other is about little creatures from another dimension who travel to our world in search of marshmallows.  I hope to finish at least one of them before the year is out!
