A boy and his banjo
Here is a look at the cover of my next book for kids, a novel called "Banjo of Destiny."
Jeremiah falls in love with the sound of old-time banjo music and wants to learn to play. But when his wealthy (or, as Jeremiah's best friend Luella says, "stinking rich") parents won't let him buy one, he decides to build a banjo himself. Or (to quote Luella again), to listen to his "inner nerd."
It's funny, it's dramatic, it's touching, it's romantic. Okay, maybe not romantic.
Closer to publication date I'll try and get around to publishing a picture of the banjo that Jeremiah (with some help from the author) builds.
The book will be published in March but is already up on Amazon and the other online book sites.
Happy New Year, everybody.
