A STAR (EN CAVALE) IS BORN!
Our newest graphic novel, Scarlett: Star en Cavale, (Star on the Lam) is our first book to be published in French before being published in English. It was published by Editions Bayard, in their BD Kids series. Bayard bought world rights, which means that it will not be available in English until they sell the English rights to an English or an American publisher. But in the meanwhile, you can read the first chapter in English here.
BIENVENUE, LECTEURS FRANÇAIS!
Malheureusement, notre site est tout en anglais, mais nous trouvons que le traduction de Google marche assez bien.
The Fog Mound Trilogy is now being published in Germany, where it is called Das Geheimnis des Nebelbergs. Susan finds this especially satisfying, because her great grandfather, John Schade, was born in Frankenberg, Germany. He came to America with his family in 1847, when he was one year old, on a sailing ship that took 35 days to cross the ocean.
We recently received an email from Samantha Bennett, who is a student in the education program at the University of Georgia. She said that she had been doing some research for one of her classes on our books, and was having trouble finding biographical information about Susan. Here is Susan's answer to that email.
NEW LONDON DAY INTERVIEW
This was our first multimedia interview! The reporter came to our house without any notebook, and without a still camera. She only shot video. All of the quotations in the print article, and all of the still photographs, were taken from the video. Since Susan Schade is highly allergic to interviews, let alone video interviews, Jon Buller got to play the windbag all by himself. Here is the link.
Susan is doing a new series of books for HarperCollins' popular "I Can Read!" imprint. The stories follow a crew of mouse pirates, led by Captain Riff Raff, as they navigate the waters of a maze of underground storm drains in search of cheese and adventure. They are illustrated by Anne Kennedy and so far are only available as ebooks. The first two titles in the series are Riff Raff the Mouse Pirate and Riff Raff Sails the High Cheese.
NEW EGG TEMPERA
The newest addition to the GALLERY is an another egg tempera painting -- ROMEO AND SCARLETT.
