- ON IT'S WAY -
THE BIG OL' BIKE
Oliver is a smaller than average kid, with bigger than average dreams. When his grandfather leaves him an old bike for his birthday, Oliver is on top of the world. Unfortunately, the biggest bully in school doesn't approve, and Oliver finds himself challenged to a race. Somehow he'll have to be bigger than he ever imagined to prove heroes come in small packages too.
A longer than average story for this age range (meant to be transitional between chapter books and middle grade novels), for readers between 7-10 years old.
The official cover reveal is right around the corner!
NOT THE FINAL COVER
The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.
- Pablo Picasso -
You're only given one little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it..
- Robin Williams -
My little spark of madness shows itself in many different creative forms - and perhaps a smidge in my sense of humor too. It causes all kinds of wonderful mischief in my life. I absolutely love the quotes above. I encourage everyone out there to find your own unique spark. When you do, embrace it, nurture it, and let it grow - for it makes us who we are.
THE CONTEST STARTS OCTOBER 25, 2020.
