26. From the short story: The Boy In The Leaves by J.D. Holiday

The Boy  In The Leaves B&W FINISHEDFinal 3-25-13  JDHOLIDAY


A small boy laid there, motionless. Unlike the leaves around him he lay undisturbed by the wind gust.


Max stepped away. It was just a little kid. He looked asleep, his dark skinwas a shade of blue and purple, almost translucent. Thin parchment spanning a fragile frame.


The boy wore black jeans and an orange T-shirt with a ‘Save The Oceans’ logo across his chest. A crusted gash was on his forehead. Any time now he’d move, open his eyes and jump up, laughing.


“He’s dead,” Tony said again, this time contemptuously, his eyes wells of tears.


Max’s chest felt crushed like the time he’d fallen on his back from the school yardjungle gym and he couldn’t pull air in. He managed to say, “Maybe he’s not.”


Tony shook his head. “The little piss head. Dumb shit! He didn’t do whathe should have and now he’s dead. Stupid kid!”


Max stared at the kid. For a moment he sawTonylying in the boy’s place.Max choked. “He’s sick or something.” He hedged closer and squatted down, hesitantly touching the boy’s face. The skin was unusually cold, and the cheek dented in easily, like clay. Max jumped back falling on his backside.


“He’s dead. Can’t you see that cut on his head? They smashed him with something.Hard!” Richie loudly told him, his hands clutched at his side.


“No. Maybe it was an accident. Or a car hit him.”


“Grow up, Max. It happens,”Tony said softly now, grabbing Max’s sleeveand jerking him to his feet. “We have to tell.”


On his feet again, Max let Tony continue pulling him toward his own house. At the front door Tony using his key, lead Max inside.


They softly moved through the silent house to the kitchen in back, bright light from the many windows illuminating their way. Nothing was ever out of place there. Alwaysa bleachy smell in the air as if someone wiped off everything to disinfect and kill all the germs before they contaminated the inhabitants of the house. This house gave Max the creeps. There was something missing from it. What it was Max knew well, though things have changed since his stepfather now sucks it all up in their family. There was no love and what was there, felt like old toast taste; brittle, crackly and harsh. Most times Max could get Tony to come over to his house and hang out.When Max was here though, at Tony‘s, he felt it. Something always spooked him, only worse this time. Finding the boy did it, never having seen someone dead before.


He could almost see Tony getting beaten up here. Marus broke Tony‘s leg with thebaseball bat Tony usually kept leaning inside the garage door. Tony said he was batted to short stop, the patio doors calling him out. His parents told people he’d fallen from a backyard tree. Afterwards, Tony put the bat through the lattice work decorating the front porch, out of sight under the stairs so Maris couldn’t use it again.

27. What Magazine Editors Want (& Don’t Want)

What are editors pet peeves? What can you do to get more and more assignments tossed your way by editors? Do editors expect you to know SEO? (Do you know what SEO means?)

I was honored to be interviewed by Laura Pepper Wu, editor of The Write Life magazine, where we discussed many important topics that relate to freelance writers. It’s a lot of great info packed into a relatively short conversation, so it’s worth checking out (not to mention I look incredibly dashing in my bright blue headphones). Here’s the clip.

28. Great News from the NCBLA!



NCBLA Planning 
In Search of Wonder:
Common Core and More
Professional Development Day
October 17th, 2014 in Perry, Ohio

The National Children’s Book and Literacy Alliance is launching a new education initiative—In Search of Wonder: Common Core and More—in  Northern Ohio this fall! This inspiring professional development day is designed for teachers, librarians, and caretakers—any and all adults who live with and work for young people!

In Search of Wonder: Common Core and More” will take place on NEOEA Day, October 17th, at the Goodwin Theatre in Perry, Ohio and will feature authors Katherine Paterson, Nikki Grimes, Tanya Lee Stone, Steven Kellogg, and a soon-to-be named YA author! 

For more information and registration details, click here

We are working with Perry, Ohio School’s chief media specialist Jodi Rzeszotarski and the Cleveland Public Library’s Director of Children’s Services Annisha Jeffries to plan the day’s schedule so we ensure In Search of Wonder addresses the Common Core needs of all teachers and librarians.


Recently, I spent time with Jodi at the Perry Schools touring their beautiful facilities and had an inspiring afternoon working with Annisha and her talented and energetic staff at the Cleveland Public Library (CPL). 

As a teen working in downtown Cleveland, I spent most of my lunch hours at the CPL, so it was with special joy that I saw all the remarkable changes Annisha and her staff have created—a new teen room, the only safe harbor for teens downtown, a beautiful arts center for creative activities, and the huge reading rooms overflowing with books, looking out onto the city and the lake. Annisha and her staff have accomplished so much in two short years!

33. A Video Essay on Jim Jarmusch: "Dead Men & Ghosts, Limited"


As the silence around here indicates, I've been tremendously busy the past few weeks. One project I managed to complete was a new video essay, this one about Jim Jarmusch's films Dead Man, Ghost Dog, and The Limits of Control. It's now available at Press Play, along with a brief introduction.

34. O is for Overtaken--and a Free Giveaway

My recent novel, Overtaken, is a keeper because--I wrote it! Better yet, I want you to have a copy too! 

From now until the end of the 2014 A-Z Challenge on April 30, all you have to do is leave a comment on any of my posts and you'll be entered into a random drawing on May 1, 2014 to win your very own copy. This goes for everyone who's already commented on earlier posts as well. And if you're a follower of my blog who leaves a comment, it gets even better--I'll throw in a bonus prize! This is to thank all of you wonderful people for taking the time to visit, comment, and join. "O" is for overjoyed to meet you!

In the meantime, here's a little more about the book: Published in 2012, Overtaken is a literary Gothic fairy tale centering on Sara Elliott Bergsen, a portrait artist living in London. You can watch the book trailer here, and get some idea of the story settings from my Pinterest board here. 

I started writing the book as part of an exercise in a workshop I took at the International Women's Writing Guild Summer Conference at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. We were meant to try a visualization process to invite a story in that we could write about. We closed our eyes, sat in deep silence and meditation, and asked a character to visit us. That's when Sara appeared, climbing the stone steps to a mysterious mansion, on her way to being . . . Overtaken. I was equally overtaken, and for the next several years I wrote every day in my spare time to find out what happened to Sara and why she was at the mansion in the first place. I was as surprised at what I found as she was.

Now Sara and her story are so much a part of my life I can't think of what my world would be without her. One of the strangest things about writing, to me, is how our characters become real--imaginary friends that change our lives as much as we create theirs. What is real, what is illusion?, the exact dilemma Sara faces throughout the book, and questions I still love to explore.

How about you? Looking forward to hearing from you so we can discuss these questions together! See you tomorrow with the letter "P."

37. We Were Liars: E. Lockhart

Book: We Were Liars
Author: E. Lockhart
Pages: 240
Age Range: 12 and up

We Were Liars, e. lockhart's upcoming young adult novel, is fabulous. I couldn't put it down, particularly the last third. On finishing it, I had to go back and immediately re-read large chunks of the book. This is something I never do. Yes, it is that good.

Really, if you are an e. lockhart fan, or a fan of suspenseful young adult fiction of any stripe, that should be enough. You should stop reading here. Because this is NOT a book that you want spoiled. You want to go into it knowing as little about it as possible.

The protagonist isn't wholly likable. She's wealthy, beautiful and spoiled (with heavy parallels to the Kennedy family). She doesn't even know the names of the people who work for her extended family every summer. But it doesn't matter. She is compelling anyway - I promise.

The primary setting, a private island near Martha's Vineyard, isn't one that will resonate with most readers' personal experience. But that doesn't matter, either. Lockhart draws the island so clearly, and the characters so sharply (for good and ill) that you feel like you're there with them. 

In terms of mature content, there is some kissing, and some drinking, and some talk of (but no action regarding) sex. But this is a powerful book, and I would not give it to kids under 12. 

And honestly, that's all I have to say. Pre-order it, read it when it's available, and try not to read any detailed reviews in the meantime. Highly recommended for teen and adult readers, male or female. I won't stop thinking about We Were Liars for a while.

After everything that has happened, Grace goes to the Everglades to live with her grandmother, Birdee. Even though she is now home-schooled by her bird-obsessed grandmother, the move gives Grace time to relax. She learns to scuba dive and starts boating with old man Rex, Birdee's casual friend/boyfriend. 

One day while out in the marshes of the Everglades, Grace rescues an abused Florida panther, currently on the endangered list. The more she dives into the animal’s horrific condition, the more she ventures into the underground world of the roadside zoos that run rampant in Florida with a total disregard for the law. Eventually, she stumbles upon one large roadside zoo filled with a variety of endangered and illegal animals. 

Before she can gather evidence and report her findings to the authorities, she is kidnapped by the ruthless owner and dragged deep into the Everglades for a hunting challenge. Only this time, Grace is the prey. 

During a sick game of cat and mouse, Grace is offered one chance at survival. With a one-hour head start and very little supplies, time and skill are now all that stands between the hunter and the hunted.

43. Calling the Cops on Conventions

Donna Barr has posted an item on her blog that I think is very important.  Why? Because more and more I hear female cosplayers and women attending US conventions report sexual harassment.  The organisers of events rarely even act when perpetrators are reported.

A woman wearing a comic or fantasy related costume to an event is NOT shouting out -"Hey, I'm a slu come and abuse me!"  I've heard of no incidents in the UK but cosplayers and fan boy geeks ought to read Donna's posting!

44. Shattering the Multicultural Myth of the Market. Let's go.

"A young adult book featuring a protagonist who isn't of European descent will never become a bestseller."

"The majority of readers won't read a young adult novel featuring a protagonist who isn't of European descent."

We imagine these kinds of comments, spoken or unspoken, governing the publishing industry. In our guts, we know they're not true. We gripe about this issue. We try to disprove such claims through social media and conferences, panels and articles, speeches and radio shows. Unfortunately, nothing so far has resulted in such a young adult novel breaking through into widespread success.

The truth is that, for all of our good intentions, publishing is a for-profit industry.

Money changes minds.

"Adults don't read books for young readers." Harry Potter shattered that one, didn't it?

"Boys don't read girl books." Along came Suzanne Collins with Katniss, and middle-aged men were tearing through The Hunger Games trilogy.

Yesterday I tweeted this:

I got several suggestions including books like Joseph Bruchac's Killer of Enemies, The Living by Matt De La Peña, Fake ID by Lamar Giles, and Prophecy by Ellen Oh.

But Ellen raised a good question:
I do think that film can take a book to the next level, but it must achieve some widespread market success before moviemakers begin to pay attention. There are two necessities to achieve this kind of success.

First, storytellers — RISE UP! Write a great story that rings with authenticity featuring a protagonist we love who is not of European descent (I know the label stinks, but you get my drift.) It must be a page-turner. It must knock our story-hungry socks off.  By the last page, not only are we are ready to read it again,  we are reaching into our wallets to pre-order the sequel. We are tweeting, texting, status-ing, and insta-ing that book until our friends are convinced they must buy it right now or their quality of life will diminish.

I may complain about the market and choose to blame my lack of breakthrough success on the r-word, but let's get real—I need to write an AMAZING STORY. Once I've achieved this (and the veracity of such a claim has been thoroughly verified by countless words and reviews of readers who don't know me), I might be able to question why it didn't become a blockbuster.

I know that one part of us believes our mothers and thinks our books are beyond incredible, but another part says, "Maybe it was good, but get better, get better." Let's listen to that—time is short.

Second, readers, be on the hunt for such a story. In the old days, we relied solely on publishing houses to put publicity and marketing big bucks behind fiction. These days, social media and virality are increasingly key to launching a novel into bestseller status, which feels like the collective "we" have a bit more power.  How can we use that power to get behind a title? Maybe we can add our small voice of influence to help it sell like crazy.

Who is likely to discover a young adult novel with blockbuster potential featuring culturally marginalized protagonists (gosh, I hate race labels—what do you think of that one)? I trust indie booksellers and librarians. That's why I tune into their voices on twitter (feel free to follow my lists of 197 booksellers and 359 librarians.) If booksellers like Elizabeth Bluemle and librarians like Betsy Bird, champions of "add-your-own-label-here" books for years, don't discover this myth-shattering story, nobody will.

I believe that changing the market can and will happen. And when it does, I promise you I'll say I told you so.

46. Marvel Month-to-Month Sales: March 2014 — the two types of All-New Marvel Now #1s

201404171543.jpg

By Jason Enright

Another month of All-New Marvel Now releases is upon us. Some books end, some books relaunch, some new heroes arrive on the scene. Let’s see what the numbers are telling us. First up a bit of a breakdown:

10 new #1s (not counting #1s from miniseries like Revolutionary War)
8 Avengers titles
7 X-Men titles (9 if you count X-Force and X-Factor)
10 titles that double-shipped.

Now before we get deep into the numbers, I want to point out a trend that I’ve been noticing, and would love to hear your thoughts on in the comments below.

So there are two types of All-New Marvel Now #1s. The first is something like Black Widow or She-Hulk, where the new #1 is a new series featuring a new or returning character and a new creative team, so basically a new book. The other is what I call the soft relaunch. They take an ongoing series with falling sales and they give it a new #1, but not much else changes, same creative team or if maybe the artists changes, the writer stays, and maybe a slight tweak on the storyline or premise. Examples of this are Secret Avengers or X-Factor.

Now the trend I have been noticing is that these soft relaunches might see the issue #1 get a big sales boost but then sales fall down very close to where it was before the reboot in the next few months. So I ask all of you fans, retailers, etc. who read this, what do you think is going on? Is the relaunch just not a big enough deal to catch reader interest? Is there not enough of a shakeup or new direction? Is this just relaunch fatigue? There have been a lot of Marvel Now relaunches. Is there just more focus and excitement on the new titles like Silver Surfer, Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight? 

So keep those thoughts and question in mind, and let’s dive in to the numbers.

Thanks as always to Milton Griepp and ICV2.com for their permission to use these figures.

Superior Spider-Man stays really strong as it heads towards its conclusion and the return of Peter Parker. The final issue should actually see a sales increase, and then rumor has it that the orders on Amazing #1 are going to be huge, like in the 500,000 range. It will be really interesting to see how much of that is hype and how much second and consecutive drop off after that. Stay tuned as we’ll be watching this series very closely.

Very strong issue 1 sales numbers for Daredevil, backed up by 5 variant covers. This book has always been a critical hit and while its sales were very steady, they were never HUGE. Hopefully this soft relaunch gives readers a good jumping on point for what is one of the best creative and best books in comics right now. We’ll be watching to see how much of this sales bump the book is able to hold on to for future issues.

Been a while since there has been a Silver Surfer solo series, but with the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, it seems time to bring in more of the cosmic characters. This is a pretty good debut and likely has a lot to do with the strong creative team behind this book. Again we’ll be watching to see how issue 2 -4 do. Hopefully, it will only see small drops and a lot of re-order activity.

A nice bump for the .NOW issue and its 3 variants, but the thing to watch for is if the series holds onto those sales or drops right back down to where it was for the next issue.

Final issue of the crossover with Guardians of the Galaxy sees only a slight drop from the previous issue. All said this series is still going pretty strong and the crossover did help boost its sales.

Uncanny Avengers gets a nice 10k bump from the .NOW and its 4 variant covers. Again we will have to wait until next month to see if it holds on to any of these sales.

15. SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL

Really nice numbers for the Spider-man annual coming in only 15k under the main series.

This is a nice number for the new Ellis/Shalvey/Bellaire Moon Knight book. Goes to show you that putting a strong creative team behind a lesser known character really helps drive sales numbers and build confidence in the book.

Just like All-New X-Men, this series sees some growth due to the crossover, and should get another nice boost from the ‘100th’ issue special next month. I wonder if many X-men fans discovered Guardians through this crossover or vice versa, maybe this will help both books gain some new readers.

19. Magneto

Nice debut for the Master of Magnetism. Again, we’ll have to see how steeply it drops in future months and how many reorders it gets.

So this is the first comic in an interesting trend we’re starting with some of the Marvel Now relaunches. Books that aren’t new series but simply renumbering of existing series seem to have a strong debut issue but then immediately start to drop back down to their previous numbers. Before this soft relaunch, this title was selling around 35k, now on its second issue of the relaunch it is back down to 40k already. So what is going on here? Has the bloom come off the All-New Marvel Now rose? Or is this relaunch just not enough of a shakeup, sure it is a different creative team, but is still a very similar premise. You have to wonder if instead of helping the book find new readers, did the relaunch just give some people a reason to drop the book from their pull lists? Could this relaunch actually result in lower sales than it was doing before the new #1?

The .NOW issue gave a great sales bump but since that issue, numbers have been dropping even more rapidly than before. Although, historically the Avengers seem to live in the 50k range the last couple years, so maybe it is getting close to leveling out.

25. ORIGIN II
09/01  Origin #1 of 6    - 135,561 
10/01  Origin #2 of 6    - 131,582

02/14  Origin II #3 of 5 -  53,640  (-17.0%)
03/14  Origin II #4 of 5 -  50,210  ( -6.4%)

Seems to be leveling out and the series will probably end at 45 to 50k. They didn’t quite catch the same zeitgeist as the original series, but this would probably still be considered a success, and will likely do well in a collected format.

26. ALL NEW GHOST RIDER
03/09  Ghost Rider v6 #33 -  21,344

---
2 year  (265.0%)
10 year (134.6%)

When you compare this to Ghost Rider’s sales historically this is a very strong debut issue. The real test for this series will be how long it can hold on to these numbers and where it will end up stabilizing. It seems like reviews and general internet chatter have been good for this series, so I hope it finds its audience and sticks around for a while.

Deadpool is coming off the .NOW issue high, and seems to have held onto a good number of those readers. With the wedding issue coming up it will likely see another sales bump and continue to hold steady in the 40-45k range for some time.

This .NOW issue does not get a very big sales bump, and if the trend from other series is any indication, the next issue will actually see a decent decline.

This series is an odd duck when it comes to sales numbers. It has a very vocal and passionate fan base, but it never does great in terms of sales. You would think that this new issue might perform like Daredevil and pull in big numbers as it gives all the curious readers a new jumping on point and yet looking at these numbers that didn’t happen. Which makes me wonder if we aren’t seeing the full picture here? And by that I mean digital sales. Perhaps the passionate fan base of readers are buying this book digitally? I also will be interested to see its re-order numbers or if there is a second printing, which may indicate its performance was underestimated in the initial orders. Still this book is a bit of a conundrum and I’ll be interested to watch the variation in sales over the next couple of months.

This book continues to slide down little by little, but those drops seem to be getting smaller, which may indicate that it will start to level out between 35 and 40k.

The .NOW issue sees a very big increase which leads to the big question: will this series hold onto any of those new sales or drop right back down to where it was around 29k?

So issue #1 saw some good re-order activity (see that second # in brackets, that is the orders including re-orders). However, this is another one of those Marvel Now relaunches where very soon after launch we see it starting to sink back to pre-relaunch levels. If the old series was at 31k, and new series is at 40k for issue 3, then how successful was the relaunch? Is this Wolverine fatigue or relaunch fatigue? Hopefully those re-order numbers mean that we might see a sales increase for issue 4 or 5 as more readers discover this series.

41.  NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEADPOOL
01/14  Night #1 of 4 - 47,596
01/14  Night #2 of 4 - 40,241  ( -15.5%) [42,333]
02/14  Night #3 of 4 – 37,974  (  -5.6%)
03/14  Night #4 of 4 – 38,457  (   1.3%)

This mini-series ends on very solid footing with an increase in sales for issue 4 and extra re-orders of issue 1. Deadpool is a very solid franchise for Marvel these days.

42. Ms. Marvel
02/14  Ms. Marvel #1 -  50,286 [57,249] (  --- ) 
03/14  Ms. Marvel #2 -  38,357  (-23.7%)

So almost 6k in re-orders for issue 1 and only a 23% drop for issue 2. I think we may actually see an increase in sales by the time we get to issue 4 or 5 as more readers discover this book and stores restock the early issues. Not to mention this book is said to have done very well digitally, which sadly we don’t see numbers for. All of these indicators seem to point to this new series being a big win for Marvel.

43. THOR: GOD OF THUNDER

Another series that doesn’t hold on to the sales boost from its .NOW issue, and instead drops back to below its previous sales numbers.

Another Marvel Now soft relaunch that doesn’t earn much from its relaunch. On issue 2 it is only 10k above where it was before the relaunch, which is not very promising.

Hawkeye is very stable in the 35k range, despite an erratic shipping schedule.

39.  AVENGERS WORLD
01/14  Avengers World #1 - 86,727
01/14  Avengers World #2 - 53,693  (-38.1%)
02/14  Avengers World #3 – 39,999  (-25.5%)
03/14  Avengers World #4 – 34,397  (-14.0%)

I am honestly very surprised that this book is dropping so much. Even if there are a lot of Avengers books, this is so closely tied to the core Avengers book that I’d think it should have captured more of that book’s readership.

56. SECRET AVENGERS

This is not a very strong debut issue at all. Whereas other books double or triple their numbers with a enw #1 this book gets a boost of 75%. If it drops 30 to 40% like other books do for their second issue then it will go right back to where it was before the new #1. I think stores and readers are starting to lose confidence in Marvel with these faux relaunches.

Issue 18 had two variants so perhaps that accounts for the slight increase of 300 copies sold. Perhaps also retailers ordered a few more to have when the movie came out. Still it is somewhat disappointing that the film has made 160 million dollars yet the comic can’t sell more than 35,000 copies.

Two issues in and only 6000 copies above where it was before the relaunch. I don’t think readers are buying that direction is very all-new.

So Undercover is the new series that follows the teen Avengers from Avengers Academy as well as some other Marvel teen characters. It only gets a 50% boost above where it’s previous iteration ended, but historically these books have always sold between 20 and 30k, so I guess this is on course. Maybe this time it will hold onto some more readers.

Historically the last couple of War Machine/Iron Patriot/ Iron Man 2.0 books have sold right in this range of 20k – 30k, so again this series seems to be doing just what is expected of it and no more.

Hulk is leveling out a bit before its soft relaunch. Will it fall prey to the same trend that we’ve been seeing with other recent Marvel now relaunches or will it see a big sales boost like Waid’s other book Daredevil has? We’ll have to wait and see.

69. PUNISHER
03/04  Punisher v7 #4  – 47,096

---
2 year  (  34.0%)
5 year  ( -20.3%)
10 year ( -36.4%)

A drop of 5% might mean this series will start to level out around 25-27k, which would be a decent number for Punisher historically.

73. CATACLYSM
07/13  Hunger #1 of 4    - 70,835
08/13  Hunger #2 of 4    - 44,929  (-36.6%)

02/14  Cataclysm #5 of 5 – 25,752  ( -2.3%)
03/14  Survive (One-Shot)- 28,782  ( 11.8%)

Survive is the epilogue to the Cataclysm and bridges the gap between the new Ultimate universe books coming next month. Hopefully, more people will be reading those then picked up Survive.

70. Loki
03/11  Loki #4 -  12,055  
---
02/14  Loki #1 -  41,921  (  --- ) [44,259]
03/14  Loki #2 -  27,968  ( -33.3)
---
3 year  (132.0%)

I’ll be keeping an eye on this. Issue 2 sees a drop in orders but issue 1 had some strong re-order activity so we may see this book’s sales grow or at least start to level out. Still it is doing much better than the last Loki series.

78. BLACK WIDOW
01/14  Black Widow #1 - 53,879
01/14  Black Widow #2 - 31,260  ( -42.0%)[33,603]
02/14  Black Widow #3 – 28,127  ( -10.0%)[30,187]
03/14  Black Widow #4 – 27,378  (  -2.7%)

Very small drop this month plus good re-order activity is promising for this series. I wonder if we’ll either see it flatten out more, or even get an increase in sales. This series isn’t that far off in sales from other Avengers movie stars like Cap, Hawkeye, Thor, and Iron man, so maybe a solid 30k is really good for solo Avengers books.

79. ALL-NEW X-FACTOR
03/09  X-Factor #40    - 31,883

1 Year  (  30.6%)
2 Year  (  15.0%)
3 Year  (   8.2%)
5 Year  ( -14.3%)

Adding to the trend I’ve been mentioning. Here is another series that is already getting very close to where it was pre-relaunch. The good news is that each month its sales drops are getting smaller, but it still seems on track to fall right down to where it was pre-relaunch before long. This leads me to think that if you were reading X-factor, you kept reading it, but if you weren’t reading it, the new direction didn’t really draw you in and keep you interested.

80. ALL-NEW INVADERS

01/14  All-New Invaders  #1 - 55,167
02/14  All-New Invaders  #2 – 32,293  (-41.5%)

Still dropping but slowing down some.

82. She-Hulk
03/04  She-Hulk v1 #1   -  34,499  
02/13  Red She-Hulk#63  -  15,941

02/14  She-Hulk    #1   -  41,921  (  --- )
03/14  She-Hulk    #2   -  26,675  (-36.3%)
---
1  Year  ( 67.3%)
10 Year  (-22.7%)

Now I didn’t see any re-order activity on this series, but it did get a second printing of issue 1. Maybe we’ll get more numbers and some re-orders next month to get a better idea if these numbers are on track. If they are, this series isn’t doing as well as some of the other new offerings like Ms. Marvel and Black Widow.

85. New Warriors
03/09  New Warriors #20 -  15,081
---
02/14  New Warriors #1  -  45,765  (  --- )
03/14  New Warriors #1  -  26,006  (-43.2%)
---
5 year  ( 72.4%)

That is a pretty big drop. I’ve heard good things about this series, but the numbers seem to suggest that retailers aren’t buying it and without a lot of re-orders it doesn’t seem like there is a lot of reader demand either.

90. MIGHTY AVENGERS
03/09  Mighty Avengers   #21 -  71,322  
---
09/13  Mighty Avengers v2 #1 - 101,921

03/14  Mighty Avengers v2 #8 -  24,933  ( -6.0%)
---
6 Mnth  ( -75.5%)
5 Year  ( -65.0%)

This book continues to drop and will probably slip under 20k shortly which is historically where Marvel either relaunches or cancels a series.

91. Winter Soldier Bitter March
03/12  Winter Soldier #3  - 34,923
02/13  Winter Soldier #16 – 20,973
---
02/14  W. Soldier BM  #1  - 31,137  (  --- )
03/14  W. Soldier BM  #2  - 24,831  (-20.3%)
---
1 Year  (  18.4%)
2 Year  ( -29.0%)

I’m not really sure what they were going for with this series. It is a Winter Soldier story timed to come out at the same time of the movie but doesn’t star the Winter Soldier or Captain America. It doesn’t seem like retailer quite knew what to do with it either.

93. SAVAGE WOLVERINE
03/13  Savage Wolverine #3  -  50,310  (-13.6%)
04/13  Savage Wolverine #4  -  45,933  ( -8.7%)

03/14  Savage Wolverine #16 -  24,008  ( -4.7%)

Continues to drift downward even with this issue having a variant cover.

96. MIRACLEMAN
01/14  Miracleman #1 - 52,313
01/14  Miracleman #2 - 36,927  ( -29.4%)
02/14  Miracleman #3 – 25,970  ( -32.6%)  
03/14  Miracleman #4 – 23,557  (  -9.3%)

Okay issue 4 seems to be leveling out a bit which is good. Maybe Miracleman will just be a steady 20k book, which maybe is good a recolored rerelease of an older book.

97, 98. NOVA

Nova is getting awfully close to dropping below 20k. Perhaps a reboot is in store for this title soon?

The numbers on this aren’t great and are trending towards cancellation or relaunch, but it is getting a new writing team with issue 27, so maybe that will help give it a boost.

There was no solicit for this series in June, so not sure if it is totally cancelled or will be rebooted o some sort of Amazing Spider-Man team-up. The sales would indicate that it is time for some sort of change however.

Final issue.

131. GEORGE ROMERO EMPIRE OF THE DEAD: ACT ONE
01/14  Act One #1 of 5 - 24,515
02/14  Act One #2 of 5 – 17,624 ( -28.1%)
03/14  Act One #3 of 5 – 15,720 ( -10.8%)

The drops are slowing down a bit.

6 Mnth  ( -47.6%)

Looks like April’s issue #12 will be the last issue of Avengers A.I. with no relaunch in sight.

80. Captain America Homecoming
02/14  CA Homecoming #1 – 15,379

Not a lot of orders for this miniseries featuring Captain America. Not sure what Marvel was going for with this series, but retailers didn’t order it, and I don’t recall seeing any press about it.

147. MARVEL KNIGHTS: X-MEN
11/13  X-Men #1 of 5 - 30,214
12/13  X-Men #2 of 5 - 22,549  (-25.4%)
01/14  X-Men #3 of 5 - 16,581  (-26.5%)
02/14  X-Men #4 of 5 – 15,014  ( -9.5%)
03/14  X-Men #5 of 5 – 13,294  (-11.5%)

Hopefully, these Marvel Knights book will do better in trade than they did as floppies.

166. MARVEL KNIGHTS: HULK
12/13  Hulk #1 of 4 - 22,169
01/14  Hulk #2 of 4 - 14,568  (-34.3%)

03/14  Hulk #4 of 4 – 11,363  ( -7.7%)

6 Mnth  (-39.4%)

Dropping pretty steeply.

186, 195, 197. REVOLUTIONARY WAR
01/14  Alpha                - 16,788
01/14  Dark Angel           - 14,083
01/14  Knights of Pendragon - 13,440
02/14  Death's Head II      - 11,310 
02/14  Supersoldiers        - 10,310 
03/14  Motormouth           -  9,355
03/14  Warheads             -  9,249
03/14  Omega                -  9,820

Again, we don’t see the whole picture for these Marvel UK books, since we don’t get the UK sales numbers, but the sales for the US weren’t great.

199. Brilliant
02/14  Brilliant #5 – 9,239

This oft-delayed book pops back up with numbers that are low for Marvel, but standard for an indie title.

222. DISNEY KINGDOMS: SEEKERS OF THE WEIRD
01/14  Seekers #1 of 5 - 24,910
02/14  Seekers #2 of 5 –  9,182  ( -63.1%)
03/14  Seekers #3 of 5 -  7,887  ( -14.1%)

This Disney marvel crossover is dropping down fast.

47. Setting the Scene for My Next “Scary Tales”: The Importance of Place

I’ve had a semi-solid idea for the next “Scary Tales” book (number 6, untitled), for a while.

But nothing real specific.

I’ve been fleshing out characters, still debating the introduction of a third character, wondering if she’s necessary or not. Definitely going with twin boys.

As for place, I always thought — without giving it much thought — some kind of swamp. Down south, I assumed. Had to be, right?

Lately that notion of place has gotten more specific. I’m zeroing in on Southeast Texas somewhere. Still have more research to do, more looking at maps, more figuring and fact-checking. And, of course, all that in turn effects my characters. How they talk, how they live.

I recently spent time on Google, looking at images, checking maps, gaining inspiration. It seems to be something I’ve been doing of late, part of my writing process.

Here’s a few you might enjoy . . .

And last but not least . . .

I made it to the Amazon bestseller list for Children's Literature & Fiction today!  There I am! I'm right there WAY down at the bottom, right after Dr. Seuss.  I took a screen shot before it disappeared. :)

50. Laura Hillenbrand’s Unbroken is Being Adapted as a YA Novel

unbrokenLaura Hillenbrand’s bestseller Unbroken: An Olympian’s Journey from Airman to Castaway to Captive will be adapted as young adult novel. Delacorte Press, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books, will publish the work on Veteran’s Day 2014.

Hillenbrand adapted the work for young readers. “The saga of a man’s bravery, ingenuity, and unwavering will in the face of almost unimaginable challenges, Louie Zamperini’s story is spellbinding to people of every age,” explained Hillenbrand in a statement. “At the urging of librarians, teachers, and parents, I’ve created this edition specifically for younger readers. I’m delighted to bring Louie’s inspiring, exhilarating story to a new generation.”

The first printing of the YA adaptation will be a 200,000 copy run. The original book has sold almost 4 million copies and has been on the bestseller list for more than 160 weeks, with 14 weeks at No. 1. The book has also been adapted as a film starring Angelina Jolie, which is slated for release on Christmas Day 2014.
