Jonah just wants to help. Crow ain’t havin’ it. Of course, let’s think about how much time Crow has spent alone… He might not be quite ready to deal with another human yet.
~ That’s a C-3PO leg. I have no idea where he got it. ~ Anyone remember what old 90′s modems sounded like trying to get online? THAT IS CROW’S VOICE RIGHT NOW. ~ Crow being protective of his smaller brother Tom makes my heart happy. ~ Those are not random 1′s and 0′s. He’s saying something.
If you like the Scooby-Doo-type story of four kids and a dog solving spooky mysteries involving monsters and ghosts, perhaps you’ll get a kick out of “Meddling Kids”, the new upcoming novel by Edgar Cantero!
It was all over the papers. “Teenage Sleuths Unmask Sleepy Lake Monster.” In the picture the gang (two boys, two girls, and their loveable weimaraner) pose before the old Deboen Mansion on Sleepy Lake in Blyton Hills, OR. All smiles, freckles, and bell-bottoms, they surround a hogtied Mr. Wickley in his salamander costume, his far-fetched criminal scheme foiled. “And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids.”
Flash forward. That glorious summer is long gone. And thirteen years of winter have followed. The gang’s grown apart. Adult life hasn’t been kind. One of the boys was institutionalized. The other killed himself. And Andy, their intrepid leader, is growing tired of not facing her demons. Too many things were left unspoken that summer. Not only her feelings for Kerri, the brains of the operation — there are also the relentless nightmares, drawing her back to that notorious night at the mansion.
In MEDDLING KIDS, it’s time to reopen the case, reunite what’s left of the gang, and return to Sleepy Lake. And this time, whether it’s petty villainy or an aeons-old primordial evil, the Blyton Hills Summer Detective Club will once and for all confront their fears face to face.
The teen detectives once known as the Blyton Summer Detective Club (of Blyton Hills, a small mining town in the Zoinx River Valley in Oregon) are all grown up and haven’t seen each other since their fateful, final case in 1977. Andy, the tomboy, is twenty-five and on the run, wanted in at least two states. Kerri, one-time kid genius and budding biologist, is bartending in New York, working on a serious drinking problem. At least she’s got Tim, an excitable Weimaraner descended from the original canine member of the team. Nate, the horror nerd, has spent the last thirteen years in and out of mental health institutions, and currently resides in an asylum in Arhkam, Massachusetts. The only friend he still sees is Peter, the handsome jock turned movie star. The problem is, Peter’s been dead for years.
The time has come to uncover the source of their nightmares and return to where it all began in 1977. This time, it better not be a man in a mask. The real monsters are waiting.
With raucous humor and brilliantly orchestrated mayhem, Edgar Cantero’s Meddling Kids taps into our shared nostalgia for the books and cartoons we grew up with, and delivers an exuberant, eclectic, and highly entertaining celebration of horror, life, friendship, and many-tentacled, interdimensional demon spawn.
I’m personally very excited to see what kind of commentary this book has to offer! I will definitely be getting a copy for myself!
happy 20th anniversary of the wizarding world. this universe has been a light to me in dark times, as i know it has been to many others, and it has a special place in my heart that i know it will keep place for another twenty years and more. also, thank you to all the people who have contributed to the fandom over the years and continue to do so; you have enriched what we were already gifted with.
I have now met Ngozi and she was so personable and so sweet and funny and everything you would think she was like after reading @omgcheckplease. Which I would recommend that you do if you haven’t yet.
And she signed my books from her Kickstarter which was just another whole level of AWESOME and I had to leave the artist’s tent and go jump up and down for awhile afterwards so I didn’t totally lose my cool in front of her. :D :D :D

My favorite character, Tokoyami, from “My Hero Academia”! He is so cool! I was trying to get used to drawing him, but my wrist still hurts. For now just a doodle thing. Sorry if it is too dark! I wanted to shape his eyes and beak correctly. I love this anime so much! I have only seen the anime so no spoilers please!
