At last! I am very pleased and proud to unveil the artwork for the long-awaited (at least by me!) sequel to “Silver Shoes,” entitled “The Powder of Life.”
For those of you unfamiliar with the Powder of Life, it was originally introduced in L. Frank Baum’s own sequel to “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” entitled “The Marvelous Land of Oz.” It’s a magic substance that can bring inanimate objects … anything at all … to life.
As with the first cover, this image depicts a specific scene from the story, which picks up just two weeks after the events in “Silver Shoes.” Donald Gardner and his friends Jon and Chris are involved. So are his parents Ellie and Bill, George Clarke, Owen Zeller, the mysterious “sorcerer” in the woods, and many other characters—some very familiar and some new. There are more twists and turns, more adventures, more surprises, more Oz, more Baum, and more pages to turn to find out what happens next!
The image below is the 12×18 version of the poster which will also be used for the cover (hard cover dust jacket, trade paperback, and ebook).
Publishing is forthcoming with an estimated release in all formats of “Summer 2012!”
