A Werewolf Named Wayne

Years ago I wrote and published a book for kids. It was called A Vampire Named Fred. I was so sure it was going to be a big hit that I wrote a sequel called A Werewolf Named Wayne. The publisher, however, a small Texas press, didn't have the muscle to make the book a national success, and in fact no longer exists. So the sequel languished in my files.

Until now. It's available for the Nook, and it a day or so it should be available for the Kindle. You can be sure I'll let you know.

I'm pretty fond of this one, and I hope it finds an audience.

BARNES & NOBLE | A Werewolf Named Wayne by Bill Crider | NOOK Book (eBook): "Al's new next-door neighbors have just arrived in a smoke-belching DeSoto convertible. They may travel in style, but there's more to them than meets their strangely eerie eyes. Things are going to get hairy as Al gets to know these new additions to the neighborhood. He's ready to face any challenges they bring--secret construction projects and cravings for canned dog food included. But first Al may have to answer a tough question: is it harder being friends with a werewolf, or a girl?

Hermie, Al, and Carl from Bill Crider's first young adult novel A VAMPIRE NAMED FRED, are back in action for another adventure in A WEREWOLF NAMED WAYNE - published for the first time ever."

My copy of "A Vampire Named Fred" is on the top of the book table right next to my recliner.

I read AVNF about two weeks ago and loved it, especially the mega-junk store owner named Cap'n Bob.
