Since the Minx line is defunct, currently there are no plans for a Janes Book 3, although Jim Rugg and I would love love love to do one. We are hoping that DC Comics will collect book 1 & 2 into one omni bus and hope that then we'd be able to add a mini story. Feel free to write a post about it or write to DC Comics or to tweet them and tell them that you'd like a book 3! Every little voice helps to convince them!

And I'm so glad that you loved The Janes! Art Saves!

Hello, Edan!

Thanks for the great question. As many people know, I mostly write YA, but I have loved writing picture books. I can tell you that I am currently at work on a new picture book that I hope is as full of quirky fun as ODD DUCK is. More on that later in the year, but meanwhile, I do have another picture book called GRANDMA'S GLOVES. It's a delicate book about gardening and the passing of a loved one, so it's fragile and sad. But those kinds of books are sometimes needed too for our little ones.

I am so glad that your son loves ODD DUCK! I hope he's found a best friend like Theodora or Chad!

All best,

“Silent is the ruined land.
Man is brutal
and the rain does not wash away
the pain
or rid the distant memory.
It makes it glisten.”
Cecil Castellucci, Boy Proof

“I took that smile and I put it right where the hole in my chest was. It was better than coffee, or chocolate, or a perfect pirouette. I clutched it and held it tight.”
Cecil Castellucci, Rose Sees Red

“Non est ad astra mollis e terris via.
That's my philosophy. Its a quote from the past. "There is no easy way from the earth to the stars.”
Cecil Castellucci, Boy Proof

“Gentle reader, may you never feel what I then felt! May your eyes never shed such stormy, scalding, heart-wrung tears as poured from mine. May you never appeal to Heaven in prayers so hopeless and so agised as in that hour left my lips: for never may you, like me, dread to be the instrument of evil to what you wholly love.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
