In addition to word finds and crossword puzzles, we now have two new online 42 piece jigsaw puzzles based off of the awesome paintings (by Tanja Bauerle) for the Wright on Time book covers! These are so fun to do. I especially enjoy how they magically turn into pictures after the puzzle is solved.
If you have ideas for new games for us to add, please let us know. More puzzles for the Utah and Wyoming books are in development right now. So are trivia games for the first three books in the series.
As the new print date for Wright on Time: ARIZONA gets closer and closer (if all goes well — and it should– the book should print next Friday, August 14th), I’m happy to announce the release of my new book trailer.
A book trailer, like a movie trailer?Yes!
Book trailers are becoming more and more common in the fiction world. They are usually 1-2 minutes long and give a teaser to what the book is about, as well as a bit of information about the author (sometimes), and how to find out more information about the book. I’ve loved watching these so much I knew I had to have one for my first book.
I’d love to hear what you think of it! Please leave a comment and/or e-mail me through this site. One free book to the 100th person to comment (offer expires August 22, 2009) on Twitter, Facebook, personal e-mail, or on this blog (I’ll be keeping track and I’ve already had several comments directly to me).
We’re in Benson! Today we took a tour of the throne room in Kartchner Caverns. It had lots of freaky cool speleothems like soda straws, cave bacon, curly fries, and cave popcorn. Aidan says that sounds like we went to a restaurant. We didn’t go to the big room, but it has turnip shields and a strawberry room. That’s a lot of cave food! Apparently the throne room has one of the world’s largest soda straw stalactites (21 feet 2 inches). The coolest thing in the whole cave is Kubla Khan (58 feet), the tallest column in Arizona!
It was a lot different going to such a large cave compared to the smaller salted cave we mined in south of here. It was fun going on a tour with lots of people. I even earned a really cool Girl Scout badge!
