Popular Reader's Choice Awards 2014

More news on the Danger Dan front. First up: Danger Dan Spooks the Peculiar Peranakan Pirate has been shortlisted for the Popular Reader's Choice Awards 2014!

This is a really nice surprise for us. We're so thrilled that kids have been enjoying our books! And now, it's over to our readers - do support us by voting for Danger Dan (you stand to win $50 popular vouchers too!) You may fill in the voting form found in the latest issue of Pop Club magazine or vote online here. You don't need to have a Popular card to vote. Closing date is 31 October 2014.

And if you haven't read Danger Dan Spooks the Peculiar Peranakan Pirate yet, now's the time to do so! From now till 30 November, you can buy the book at a 20% discount from all Popular Bookstores.

In other Danger Dan news, Danger Dan Traces the Perilous Poison is almost ready to go to print. We were at Epigram Books last week to do the last round of proof-reading. See the McDonald's bag? Since Lesley-Anne always has to rush over after school, inevitably it's McD's for lunch. Not her favourite but Danger Dan would approve!

Book 4 was the one we enjoyed writing the most. We love the storyline and had lots of fun with the action sequences and dialogue. But for some strange reason, it was an editing nightmare. Even at this late stage, we found many basic errors that had somehow eluded us and our editor in the previous rounds of edits. This makes us terribly nervous! Hopefully we've caught all the errors.

Meanwhile, here's a sneak peek at the cover. We adore the vibrant shade of lime!

Danger Dan Traces the Perilous Poison is scheduled to hit the printers this week and expected to be available early October. Stay tuned for updates!

I have been following your blog for a while. I just want to let you know that my 9 year son is absolutely in love with Danger Dan. We had borrowed Book 1 and Book 2 from the library but it seems they don't have Book 3 yet. He didn't want to wait anymore and asked to use the S$5 Popular book voucher received from his school for good results in his SA1 exams to buy Book 3. Mummy of course topped up the difference. He finished Book 3 immediately in one seating. Now he can't wait for Book 4 to be out!
