Rick McGee’s Space-Rover Returns

A few years ago, Rick McGee lent his amazing talents to my first illustrated children’s book, Frank Jordan: Evil Snowman. Shortly after Frank Jordan’s release, Rick released his own original creation, Space Rover. Today, Rick launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring Space-Rover back for round two!

“The cosmic canine returns in Book 2 as an old nemesis strikes back. This time, Space-Rover will need new friends to help him win the battle and save the day. Featuring new planets and characters, Space-Rover and the Prickly Planet is a fun adventure that continues the astronaut dog’s trek across the galaxy. Full-color, 32-pages, with fun characters your kids will enjoy and remember.”

This is Rick’s fourth Kickstarter project, and all three of his past campaigns reached their goal. Space-Rover was a huge hit with my kids, and Rick has some fantastic incentives available.

Please visit Space-Rover and the Prickly Planet on Kickstarter and pledge your support today!

Goodreads Giveaway: Tales from the Dad Side!

Tales from the Dad SideI’m giving away FIVE copies of Tales from the Dad Side on Goodreads this week! This is a great collection of short stories for dads and kids to share at bed time or whenever the mood strikes. Read below to learn more about the book, then click here to enter!

Once upon a time, there was a dad who didn’t want to tell the same old bedtime stories. Sure, he loved fairy tales as much as the next guy, but why tell the same old stories about pigs and bears and princesses when you can make up your own?

TALES FROM THE DAD SIDE is what happens when a dad and his kids decide to make up their own stories. Screenwriter and author John Cosper and his kids created a collection of stories featuring pigs, wolves, dogs, cats, robots, chickens, parrots, monsters, dragons, aliens, cockroaches, princesses, honey badgers, Star Wars haters, and one really, really angry bird!

This newly revised edition includes ten brand new stories with more twisted fairy tales, aliens, and even a Christmas story. It also includes twelve pages of original art work by the kids who inspired the stories.

Always funny, sometimes meaningful, and always entertaining, TALES FROM THE DAD SIDE is a great escape from the ordinary bedtime – and the perfect launching pad to create your own stories and memories with your kids!
