Ahhh, I love it, Jan. Congrats to the artist who was able to make a dead frog look cute! I'm sure your debut children's mystery novel, 'Dead Frog on the Porch' will be a run-a-away success! Congrats to you! Keep writing!

Congratulations! How exciting!

The cover is pretty sweet (I'm a book cover snob), I especially like the font. Yes, I am weird.

So, it's a series then??

Thanks Jade! It is the first in the Megabyte Mystery series. The second, which I am working on now, and which is slated to drop fall 2010, is called Dead Bird Through the Cat Door.

Cheers, Jan
