Finally! As of yesterday, Doc Wilde and The Frogs of Doom is officially published! You can find it in bookstores and on the net.
The book is the first in a series of modern pulp adventures which follow the expoits of Dr. Spartacus Wilde and his swashbuckling kids, Brian and Wren.
If you’re somehow out of the loop, you can find out more about the book at the Doc Wilde web site, http://www.DocWilde.com.
Tomorrow night, we’ll be having the book’s debut party. Here are the details:
The Day: Saturday, May 16, 2009
The Time: 7 pm
The Place: Little Shop of Stories in beautiful downtown Decatur, GA.
Little Shop is one of the finest bookstores in the Atlanta area. It lives next to the Starbucks in Decatur, GA., and is mostly dedicated to books for young people, but also has a smart selection of grown-up fare for grown up kids.
It’s one of those small bookstores that springs from a place of obvious vision and love, with a warm, knowledgeable staff and comfy couches. They’re very active in the community, working with schools and literacy programs as well as helping organize the famous Decatur Book Festival. And so much stellar talent has passed through that the wall behind the counter is like a museum, covered with wonderful sketches and notes from writers and artists who have visited.
I’m thrilled and proud to be officially debuting the Wilde’s adventures at Little Shop, and hope to see you there!
