Wow. I can’t believe I’m here.
I need to clear my eyes and blink a few times to make sure I’m not hallucinating. Maybe take a sip of champagne. That’s how publishing feels at times. Especially with this book. But I’ll be sharing a lot more about that in the coming weeks, leading up to the launch.
HOW TO SURVIVE ANCIENT SPELLS AND CRAZY KINGS will release this November from the up and coming Pugalicious Press.
Convinced that her grandfather, Zeb, needs help, twelve-year-old Bianca persuades her family to fly to the Mayan ruins of Tikal on a search and rescue mission. Impatient, she and her brainy cousin, Melvin, sneak out in the middle of the night and follow the clues to the ancient Maya city of Etza, where the people haven’t aged in 2,000 years. The cousins must learn to work together as they face loincloth-wearing skeletons from the underworld, a backstabbing princess, and an ancient prophecy—one that says in three days the city will be destroyed. They’ll find Zeb and zip right out of there. No problem.
Except, Bianca starts to care for her new friends, and Zeb does not want to be rescued. The fact that a crazy king wants to serve Bianca up to the gods as an appetizer is just a minor technicality. But this ancient evil dude has finally met his match.
Ever wondered what Indiana Jones would be like as a 12-year-old girl? Here is your answer! This non-stop adventure will whisk you off to an ancient Mayan city, throw you into certain doom, and keep you chuckling the whole way through.
