Poppy Mayberry: Return to Power Academy Book Tour, Guest Post and Giveaway for a Kindle Fire!


Poppy Mayberry: Return to Power Academy
(Nova Kids #2) by Jennie K. Brown
Publication Date: October 10, 2017
Publisher: Tantrum Books

Finding out you were wrong about something important can be a letdown. But Poppy is pleased to learn she's not just a Monday. She's a Cusper -- a weekday lucky enough to have TWO powers. Poppy's elation is short-lived when she, Ellie, Logan, and Sam return to Power Academy as camp counselors, only to find themselves out of their element and struggling with the new drama teacher and his disaster of a school musical. When some campers go missing, Poppy and her team of weekdays are on the case. Soon, Poppy begins to realize that much like her powers, the seemingly perfect town of Nova has some flaws, and the origin of her powers is as questionable as Headmistress Clothes-too-tight Larriby's choice in outfits. If only there were more days in the week!

Guest Post by the Author: The Road to Publication

My road to publication was not smooth. When I first wrote POPPY MAYBERRY, THE MONDAY six years ago, I had no idea how the publishing business worked. I thought you write a book, pitch it to some editors, and then eventually get a book deal. Boy, was I wrong! After joining and attending a few SCBWI events, I realized that if I wanted to get a traditional book deal, I’d need an agent -- the gatekeeper to the publishing world. After a few months querying agents, I got my first agent. She was amazing and loved POPPY just as much as I did. However, the editors she pitched to didn’t love it as much as we did, so I revised the manuscript. Right after the revision was complete, my then-agent announced to me that she was leaving the industry. So I was back to square one. After more rejections over the next few months, I landed a book deal for POPPY and an agent. It took another two years until POPPY MAYBERRY, THE MONDAY even published! I know now the road to publication is definitely a bumpy one.
