Short post today! Two items.



First: why has the blog been dark oh these many weeks? Why, I’ve been busy finishing a brand-new manuscript! At long last, my second novel Bride of the Tornado is complete. I sent it off to my agent, the patient supportive superstar Tina Wexler, a few days ago.



Can’t wait until it’s published? At 7pm on Tuesday, January 6, 2015 I’ll be reading an excerpt from Bride of...

The Order of Odd-Fish by James  Kennedy
"This is an extremely strange book in a fantastical and entertaining way. It was the strangest, scariest, and most suspenseful book I have ever read. "
The Order of Odd-Fish by James  Kennedy
"A sweetly wacky kids story with a plucky orphan in peril who saves everyone. Doesn't make you think too hard."

Indi Killjoy Of course! And thank you so much!

James Kennedy That ostrich is fantastic! I'd love to feature it on my blog with the other Odd-Fish art I've received -- can you send a full-sized version of the file? I'm at kennedyjames@gmail.com.

With art ability like that, I'm sure the movie will be glorious!

Indi Killjoy Well, I drew a random Eldritch City Ostrich. It's my profile pic currently.

Homeschooled? Horseback riding? In beautiful Florida? You're living the dream! I can't wait to see this Odd-Fish movie. I recommend animation because many of the environments, costumes, situations etc. would be super hard to recreate via live action. Don't wory about getting an experienced animator, you're young, you can learn to animate just by doing it, and there's tons of software/online help for that kind of thing! Forward! Excelsior!

Indi Killjoy It's actually hotter in Chicago than it is in Florida XD But I'm still unpacking, and I'm taking a horse back riding class. And I'm going to be homeschooled, so that's a big change. I'm deciding whether to do animation for the Order Of Odd-Fish movie, or live-action. Animation would be easier because we wouldn't need as many people, but I would need help from an experienced animator. I could just do stop-motion, because I am slightly experienced with drawing digitally on a computer or tablet, but I'm not that great at it.

Great to hear from you, and sorry to hear about the buttbrains! You moved to Florida? How do you like it? I'm sure it's sweltering now but I bet you'll be glad to be there in December when we're all buried in snow in Chicago!!

Indi Killjoy Gah. I deleted my Lucie account, cause people were being mean buttbrains. Now I have a psuedonym! And I really need to actually own the book to actually write the script, and I'm probably going to get it later...But, yeah. I have a couple of people who want to help, but I just moved to Florida, while they still live in Illinois, so its going to be hard. I'm starting on the script using the little parts of the book I can find on google. Anyway, hello! How've you been?

That's so kind of you to say! I'm really happy you enjoyed the book! As for a movie -- of course I'd love for a movie of "Odd-Fish" to exist, but apart from the occasional 90-second Newbery film, I'm no filmmaker. Also, what I need to focus on right now is finishing my second book, which is really really really overdue! But if you ever wanted to make a movie of "Odd-Fish," or even film some scenes from it, or whatever, I'd love to help and feature it on my blog when it's done... Thanks again for telling me you liked "The Order of Odd-Fish." It means a lot to me.


Julianna Nobody ever spells my name right, but you did!

James Kennedy Thanks, Julianna!

It's my school too and it was awesome!

James Kennedy Thanks, Lucinda! I hope you enjoy the book, too!
