Barnes & Noble will be printing an exclusive edition of Spy School Secret Service

Did you enjoy the B&N special edition of Evil Spy School? Or Big Game? Or Spy Ski School? Or Panda-Monium? If you did (or heck, even if you didn’t) here’s some good news:

There is going to be a special edition of Spy School Secret Service too.

I have just wrapped up work on some fun bonus features, and the fabulous Lucy Cummins is designing some great stuff for it as well. Like the others, there will be a special, extra-shiny book jacket with a secret surprise poster on the inside, along with lots of pages of bonus material.

And right now (July 24), the book is only $10.95 if you pre-order it on B&N. I have no idea where they came up with the price of $10.95, but if I were you, I wouldn’t question it.

All you have to do is click right here to pre-order it!

(In the past, some special editions have shipped up to a week early.  I can’t promise this will happen again, but it’s yet another bonus for pre-ordering it.)

    Also, I noticed a spelling error in my long comment. I meant then, not than. I’m kind of a grammar police, even though I don’t always catch my mistakes.

    I might make a book with a female protagonist. Keep your eyes on my blog for details.

    How can Ben go on so many missions in a year?

    First, a word about how publishing works. I write middle grade books. In middle grade, the character has to be a certain age. Once he ages up to, say 15, it is no longer really middle grade. So I have to keep my characters young for a while, which means compressing the missions they go on into a year. (If you were to argue that Harry Potter was allowed to grow up but stay middle grade, you’d be wrong. Harry Potter became YA, but it was such a phenomenon that no one cared.)

    1) If you are in spy school, you don’t get considered tardy or truant or even absent if you are on a mission.

    2) I take care to explain why Ben is chosen for his missions. He has so far only gone on missions that it makes sense for a kid to go on, and when it comes to SPYDER, the CIA is so compromised there is almost no one that can be trusted not to be a SPYDER agent.

    3) You’re right. These books are fiction. They are escapist. They are not to be believed as being even remotely realistically possible.

    Thank you for that explanation. It was interesting to understand a bit more about publishing, and it gave me a few more facts about your books to make my imagination of the book clearer. I really appreciate it.
