Latest Book Projects!

Hi All,
Right now I'm working on two new projects. The first is a revamp of a book I wrote a while ago called The Scourge of Happenstance. It's a modern fantasy novel where a very average fourteen year old named Jeremy Hart gets dumped by his girlfriend. After that, he goes on a field trip to Alcatraz. After that, he finds an old man disintegrating into dust. The man sends Jeremy, his best friend Roger, Jeremy's ex-girlfriend, Olivia, her new butt-head boyfriend Dan, and Carolynn Santori, the snottiest girl in school, on a trip to a hidden kingdom full of humans and creatures with abnormal abilities. 

I'm going to need alpha and beta readers, so let me know if you're interested.

Project 2 is a book called Rust-42. It's about a 12 year old boy and his bot. Ian McCall wants desperately to get into Robotics Academy to avenge his brother's death at the hand of renegade bots, but his dad can't afford the base model that he needs to get in. Ian's Dad gives him an antique bot, an RST-42, which Ian knows is only enough to get him into the academy. If he wants to stay in, he will need to repair the bot to be able to compete with the other students at the school. When Ian heads into the forbidden zone in search of bot parts, he finds a bot component that will change his life forever.
