So, did you know that most teenaged boys will not read a book by a female author? What's up with that? (except for JK Rowling, that is) So my publisher suggested we use the name M. J. Cunningham as my name on the book since the targeted demographic is mainly boys. (maybe that's why JK Rowling did it too.)
Girls will read anything by anyone and don't care whether is seems "male" or "female." That's good. So, if you happen to walk past a book store and see a book with the name M. J. Cunningham on it, pick that dang thing up and give it a read!
My editor also told me with as fast as I seem to be able to write and edit, that maybe we can move up the publish date! How cool would that be? I've been beefing up the fight scenes and adding more meat and I like the story so much better. Most editors tell their authors to cut, cut, cut! With me, they're constantly saying, "More, more, more!" I have to laugh. What a fun journey though. I LOVE it! Thanks to everyone for your support!
