And Penguin have sent me the cover for the third book in the Skylanders Mask of Power series – Lightning Rod Faces the Cyclops Queen.
This one is out on 6th July and here’s the blurb:
The greatest Storm Titan of them all is about to make a royal appointment with his biggest challenge yet. Lightning Rod teams up with Drobot, Double Trouble and Pop Fizz to journey to a far-off city where the locals have an eye for trouble!
From the pen of Onk Beakman comes the third tale in the Mask of Power series, based on the characters from the smash hit Skylanders video games.
Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed the Puffin logo sneak its way onto the covers. I’m insanely happy that Puffin are now publishing the Skylanders books – another little tick on my wish-list. I always wanted to write something for Puffin when I was a kid.
I’ve also heard that the American edition of Spyro versus the Mega Monsters is out now at Walmart in the States. A nice little early Christmas present for US Skylanders fans. The UK edition is out on the 3rd January, so not long now.
In other news, today I hit my last major headline of 2012. Phew! There’s no rest for the wicked however – today I’m jumping into a new project for a new franchise – well new for me, at least. Exciting times (and nearly Christmas too. Fa-la-la-la-laaaaaaa)
