Finally a Novel for Younger Readers

Some teachers and parents of elementary school students have told me that the content in my books is a bit out of reach for many of their readers. Now I have a new book for ages 8 and older that eliminates that concern. It’s called Wanted: A Superhero to Change the World. It’s a fun and exciting story that is perfectly appropriate for younger readers.

You can pre-order it from me or Amazon. It will come out in September.

Will You Volunteer?

I need a few volunteers.

I will be an exhibitor at five homeschool conventions in 2018, and I have no one to help me at my exhibit table.

I need someone who is familiar with my books to chat with and sell books to homeschoolers who stop by the table.

I will also be at the table except when I am speaking at workshops, which means that the volunteer will work the table alone for about an hour during the workshops.

The ideal volunteer is an assertive adult or older teenager who knows my books well and is comfortable speaking to people he or she doesn't know.

Here are the places and dates:

Greenville, SC - March 8-10 (This slot has been filled by a volunteer)
Fort Worth, TX - March 15-17
Cincinnati, OH - April 12-14
Ontario, CA (Los Angeles) - June 14-16
St. Charles, MO (St. Louis) - July 19-21

If you live near any of these areas and would like to volunteer, please send an email to me, and we can discuss details.

I wish I could pay for helpers, but I cannot. I am known, however, for giving books away. :-) 

Libraries: Do you buy ebooks from Overdrive.com?

If your library uses Overdrive.com to access ebooks, check out their back-to-school sale. You can get any of my ebooks for 25% off through the end of September.

If you know someone who orders for a library, please pass this news along. If librarians/media specialists could share this information with others, such as on a list-serv, that would be great.
Tour Scheduling Underway

I am in the planning stages for my next book tour for the 2017/2018 school year. If you are involved with a school or homeschool group and you are interested in an author visit, please contact me by replying to this email, and we can discuss the possibility.
Testimony Time:

Dear Mr. Davis,

I thought I’d take a few minutes to share with you the impact your books have had on my life. The first book of yours I read was Raising Dragons. It was probably at least 9 years ago, maybe more. I very quickly fell in love with your writing and characters, and flew through the entire Dragons in our Midst and Oracles of Fire series. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read through them since. I have such fond memories of waking up extra early to read a chapter or two before getting to my schoolwork, and finishing as quickly as I could so I could read the rest of the day. My brother got frustrated with me for reading all day and not wanting to play with him! 

Billy, Bonnie, and crew became my best friends. There was a time in my life when I didn’t have any close friends and was very lonely. Your books were what I turned to. They brought me such joy. I laughed and cried with them, felt their pain and loss, celebrated their victories as if they were my own. I immersed myself in their world and was able to forget about my problems for as long as I needed to. Bonnie taught me so much about faith, she has always been one of my role models. Because of her, Psalm 139: 7-12 became a favorite passage. Billy and Walter taught me what friendship is like. Most all of your characters taught me some important lesson about life. I will always be grateful for your books. 

Not only do I love the Dragons in our Midst, Oracles of Fire, and Children of the Bard (I always had faith you’d continue the story. I don’t think I’d ever been more excited than when you announced these books!) series, but all of your other works. The Dragons of Starlight and Tales of Starlight series are incredible. Tales of Starlight especially had an impact on me. Those books seriously upped my standards in reading material. The Time Echoes trilogy was a fun read, though hard to wrap my brain around at times! I generally don’t like dystopian-esque tales, but the Reapers trilogy so far is fabulous and I can’t wait to finish it. 

I want to thank you for everything your books have done for me. They were my comfort for so many years. While I do not read them as much as I used to, I still think of them often. They taught me so much and helped me get through some hard times in my life. I don’t know where I would be had I never read your books. Because of your influence, I discovered many more authors and series that I still love to this day. You helped feed my love for books! I discovered an intense love for dragons and fantasy novels. While I have read many a book about dragons, none have ever been quite as good as yours. Because of you and your books, I am a better person, stronger in my faith, and much more well-read than I was before! 

Thank you,
