Pre-order Your Copy of Snoballs for All; Release February 2015

Snoballs for Al Cover

Alex McConduit is teaming up with Pelican Publishing to re-release Snoballs for All in February 2015!

The best part of a hot, humid New Orleans summer is slurping up a big, round, icy-cold, brightly-colored snoball. That’s exactly what Paul wants to do, but he can’t find the snoball festival! He searches all through the city for just one snoball (although two would be better, and three would be best). Where will Paul find snoballs for all?

The new version, written by Alexander Brian McConduit & illustrated by the talented Paulina Ganucheau, includes an updated story and all new illustrations. The book also marks McConduit’s first book brought to market outside of the self-publishing world. Pre-order your copy NOW!

W.R.I.T.E. & Uptown Music Theatre

write - Copy

This past summer I had the pleasure of bringing W.R.I.T.E. to 13 wonderful young ladies of the Uptown Music Theatre. We met once a week for six weeks as the girls wrote, edited and shared their stories. This is the third time I’ve been able to work with students in the W.R.I.T.E. program but this is the first time that the program has been fully realized. When I started this idea, the whole point of it was to help kids publish and sell their own books so that they would receive the same sense of accomplishment that I did after I wrote and published The Little Who Dat, Who Didn’t. Finally, with the help of some amazing online artists, we did just that. Stay tuned! We will be setting up book signings around New Orleans and hopefully we’ll be able to get them some media attention as well. Great job girls! You can order their books from Amazon.com below.
