Coming soon, Soon, SOON! (Yes, Book 3.)

This is your Narrator here, and I'm as pleased as one can be while wearing a bathrobe in the summertime. I've been watching Michael Reisman for some time now and, quite frankly, I was getting rather frustrated waiting for a certain thing that starts with the letter 's' and rhymes with teaful (which isn't technically a word but, as all tea-drinkers would agree, should be)(let's be honest, how many words out there Really rhyme with sequel?)(I suppose Flangelo would suggest 'beakful', but for those not of the avian persuasion, teaful will have to do).

I'm happy to say that progress has been made: the  release of the 3rd Chronicle of Simon Bloom and his friends is now in sight! There is still much for that ol' Reisman fellow to do (including various adjustments, inputs, reformatting, and a fair amount of napping...he's quite good at that last one). Nevertheless, all major obstacles and issues have now been cleared up. It is officially, as someone less proper than me might say, 'gonna happen'!

I can't give you a date Yet, but I can tell you it will be released as an e-book. Michael hopes it will be within the next month or so, though he cannot be sure. To give you something, however, here is what the e-book's cover will look like:


As your Narrator, I feel I must apologize for your having to wait. There are still some potential (minor) delays, so he and I both hope you can be a bit more patient. I can assure you, however, that the book will be available - as the title of this post implies - as soon as possible.

More information will be posted as it is known. (And, if you'd like, please spread the word!)

My son and I are both excited to read it. I think we will have to get two copies just so we can read it at the same time.
Thank you so much for such great stories.

Finally!!!!! I will have a very excited little boy when he hears the news! Michael is so in tune with kids who love science and interesting and imaginative characters. He is the author who turned my non-fiction loving son into a fiction reader. After Simon Bloom, my son began to enjoy fiction and his reading skills just exploded. The backpack is still full of physics manuals and invention books, but his reading world has opened up to Simon and other wonderful characters. Thank you Michael!

Will there, someday perhaps, be an audiobook version? Our whole family loved listening to the first two on car trips. The reader was quite good.

Our family is very excited as well about this announcement and we are very happy that this is finally happening for you... I'm sure your wait was worse than ours (although my oldest son would disagree!) We look forward to reading this- but we also hope it is published in audio book for those long car trips!

Oh my goodness!! My children (ages 18, 17, 15, 10, 6, and 4) and I were waiting and waiting for your third book! We are so happy that Simon, Owen, and Alysha get to continue their adventures. We love Greygor Geryson, too! I also hope you can publish it in a paper version. I'd like to have the whole series for our family library!

So.....I made the very bad mistake of telling my son about the third book coming out. He is asking about it all the time. PLEASE release it soon!

I can't wait! I've been trying to get my friends to read your series and hopefully this will finally get them to try. Also, yellow is my favorite color and I'm loving the new cover.
