The Scavengers Halloween

Ford Falcon from "The Scavengers"

Halloween costume: Ford Falcon from “The Scavengers”

Among the many things I never expected in this life: Young readers* turning a character from one of my books into a Halloween costume. There are honors, and then there are honors–this is a Top Fiver. To those who took the time and made the effort (and to the parents who sent the photos and messages)…thank you.

*And no, not my own children, although perhaps I shoulda thought of that. My status in the world of children’s literature was pretty much summed up by my youngest dressing up as a Harry Potter character. Nice try, Dad.

Birth of a Book Cover

The Scavengers was illustrated by Eric Deschamps. We’ve never met. I sent him some excerpts from the book, and he began generating ideas, as seen below. I’m fascinated by his talent (you can see more of his illustrations here).

Peeking Over the Stacks

This blurry photo represents that special book tour moment when the author peeks over the stacks to see if anyone showed up. Once in Memphis there were seven people there until the manager announced I would be reading, at which point they left and no one ever did show up. So I’m always grateful to see this sight, blurry or not:
