Today I unveil my new Minecraft book for kids – and it’s FREE until Sunday on Kindle!

Best friends Moot and Ward find a black-and-white cat alone in the forest. With its owner nowhere to be seen, they undertake a journey to a faraway village. Will they find who the cat belongs to?

Case of the Lost Ocelot is an unofficial Minecraft story for young readers ages 6-8. With full color pages and engaging narrative, this is the perfect transition between the early reader series and junior novels.

I’m doing another promotion on Amazon! This time, Tame That Cat! is free this weekend. I’ve also discounted the rest of the series, starting with Steve Saves the Day for 99 cents.

Strangely enough, even though I’ve sold over a thousand copies, I have yet to receive one review on any of the five books. Amazon’s response is ‘we can’t tell you why’. Sigh.

I also took a set to the local library, and the lady there was SO EXCITED about having Minecraft books for kids she asked me if I could come in a do a reading sometime. How awesome is that? I can’t wait!

Overall, this self-publishing thing is going pretty well and I’m not so afraid of doing that for my other novels now.
