The Mutant Mushroom Takeover releases in just three months!! To celebrate, I’m doing a giveaway for those who pre-order the book.
As a thank you for your support, I’ll send a goodie bag with a signed bookmark, a few creepy crawlers, mushroom stickers, and some colorful mini mushrooms. All you have to do to receive yours, is fill out this form with your name and address and upload a screenshot of your pre-order receipt.
To pre-order your copy, hop over to the Simon & Schuster website and select from one of the linked vendors: https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/The-Mutant-Mushroom-Takeover/Summer-Rachel-Short/A-Maggie-and-Nate-Mystery/9781534468658
Pre-ordering helps authors, especially new ones. Your pre-order tells bookstores and the publisher that people are excited about this book and improves rankings and how many books are stocked at stores. Both of which make a big impact for authors. You can also lock in to the lowest price. Sites like Amazon offer a pre-order price guarantee. Which means if the cost of the book goes down at anytime before the release, you’ll get the best price.
The Mutant Mushroom Takeover is perfect for kids ages 9-12 who love books with humor, mystery, and friendship.
A bit more about the book:
Stranger Things meets The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl in this lightly spooky debut about Maggie, an aspiring young naturalist, and her YouTuber best friend, Nate, who use their smarts and science to solve the mystery behind a mutant fungus that’s threatening the town.
Ever since Magnolia Stone’s scientist dad left Shady Pines to find a new job, Maggie’s been stuck in her gramma’s mobile home with her grumpy older brother, Ezra. Now she’s on a mission to put her family back together by winning the Vitaccino Junior Naturalist Merit Award.
When Maggie and her best friend, Nate, a wannabe YouTube star and alien conspiracy theorist, scout out a rare bioluminescent fungus, Maggie is certain she’s a shoo-in to win. But after animals around town start sprouting unusual growths and Ezra develops a bluish glow and hacking cough, Maggie wonders what they’ve really stumbled onto.
As things in Shady Pines become stranger and more dangerous, and conversations with her dad get complicated, Maggie must use her scientific smarts and Nate’s impressive knowledge of all things spooky to put things back in order and prevent these peculiar glowing mushrooms from taking over their home.
The Mutant Mushroom Takeover releases from Simon & Schuster on September 22, 2020.
