The Magician's Last Words

We enjoyed a very busy end of school year season where we were able visit many schools and talk about all the potential in the universe (which is quite a lot). We learned how to create a good story, how to live up to our own potential, and just had a great time. We loved that we were kept so busy, and loved meeting all those awesome kids. The only bad part of being busy was that we weren't able to do a proper launch party for Hazzardous Universe: The Magician's Last Words.

Book Two is out, it's available, and it's perfect for summer reading! We hope you enjoy the new book, because we're working feverishly on Book Three. I can't begin to tell you how many shades of totally awesome the last book in the trilogy is going to be. It's so exciting! But I better get back to work and get some writing done!

In the mean time--enjoy some of the pictures from our school assemblies:

A couple of schools have websites where we got to pose for pictures with students who'd done some pretty spectacular things. Go visit  at:
And yes, I do wear almost the same thing to school visits because I like that shirt a lot, but be assured I wash it after every visit because I don't want to make the kids pass out when I stretch out to let them talk into the microphone. Passed out kids due to stinky authors at school assemblies is never a good thing :)

Creature Creation Contest Winner!

We know you're all anxious to hear who the winner is, and we're anxious to tell you. We've had a few glitches because of the overwhelming response which gives us great difficulty in choosing a winner and also because aliens are a mischievous bunch and sometimes play pranks on us. But the results are in!
The winner is . . .
More drumroll
The drummer thinks he has a solo and is going crazy . . .
The drummer passed out over his drums due to wearing a too-tight shirt that cut off his blood circulation.
Though there is no more drumroll, there is a drummer being rolled off the stage which is kind of like a drumroll . . .

1st place: Draculous created by Rylan Chamberlain
Runner up: Auksigot created by Clayton Goodsell
We had to choose a runner up because there were so many great entries. The runner up will get a cool prize that shows we think he's awesome for creating such a great creature! Trust us . . . it'll be awesome.
Thanks everyone for the entries and fun!
