I'm very pleased to share that I've signed a contract with Scholastic for my first book. SPEECHLESS is a middle grade novel about Jelly who decides that this is the year he's going to win the speech competition at school, in spite of his morbid fear of public speaking and the connivings of his classmate who thinks the prize is rightfully hers.
I started this in one of your “Welcome to Creative Writing” classes, and I'm grateful for all the help and support given by you and the fantastic writers I met in your sessions.
Note: The next “Welcome to Creative Writing” class starts Tuesday, Sept 23, in the mornings (see here). I also have a “Writing your life and other personal stories” class starting Tuesday, Sept 23, in the afternoons (see here). And I have a “Writing for children & Young Adults” workshop on Saturday, Nov 8 (see here). ~ Brian
Two of my speculative fiction stories were just published in a new anthology from the Houston Writer's Guild called Tides of Possibility. It's available in both print and eBook formats on Amazon here.
Would you be able to help spread the word?
P.S. Brandon is looking for someone to review Tides of Possibility for Quick Brown Fox. If you’re interested, please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please copy me, too, so that I know a review will be coming at: email@example.com
