Johnny Graphic sure knows how to travel.
In his first big adventure, the 12-year-old news photographer journeys halfway around the world in search of clues to a murderous ghost conspiracy. Johnny starts by heading west to La Concha (Los Angeles in our universe), but that trip is cut short by a mid-air ghost attack on his plane. So, after a narrow brush with death in the clouds, it’s back home to Zenith (real-world equivalent: Duluth, Minnesota). Then Johnny and his companions take flight again, making their way across the Greater (Pacific) Ocean, where they encounter tropical tremors of terrible treachery.
Just like Johnny himself, my book Johnny Graphic and the Etheric Bomb has traveled a lot. The novel was mostly written in Minneapolis, but also during a long trip to Florida and during jaunts around the Midwest. The wonderful editor who helped me make it into the best story possible lives in Rhode Island, but also worked on it in Australia–where she used to live. The formatter (the person who turns manuscripts into e-books) lives and works in Malta, an island in the Mediterranean.
In a few short weeks, Johnny will be traveling to Amazon–where his adventures will be available as both a Kindle e-book and a print-on-demand (POD) paperback. Johnny will also show up in places like Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and the Apple store. Most independent bookstores will be able to order the POD book, for anyone who doesn’t use an e-reader (or prefers to read the traditional way).
And then the final leg of Johnny Graphic’s journey will happen, as the book finds its way into your hands. And into your imagination.
