Howie Monroe and the Doghouse of Doom
My editor asked me to write a third book in my series, Tales from the House of Bunnicula. And did I have trouble getting started! I was afraid I used up all my ideas. But faster than a writer can say "What if?" I came up with a story! It's about a lovable and smart (not to mention cute) orphan wirehaired dachshund puppy named Howie, who has a mysterious pain in his leg and is mysteriously invited to attend the Dogwiz Academy for Canine Conjurers. Together, Howie and his best friend, the very, very, very smart Delilah, who speaks in a British accent in this book for some reason, discover they must fight a sinister foe...The-Evil-Force-Whose-Nam-C'not-Be-Spoke!!!
Uncle Harold (who wrote a bunch of books about our friend Bunnicula), says my story is a very funny parody. Delilah says she likes the accent, but thinks her character doesn't get to speak enough.
I have no idea what they're talking about. I just hope you like the story.
