Find the tour schedule here.





Title: Lucas Mackenzie and the London Midnight Ghost Show

Publication date: November 18, 2014

Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.

Author: Steve Bryant



Lucas Mackenzie has got the best job of any 10 year old boy. He travels from city-to-city as part of the London Midnight Ghost Show, scaring unsuspecting show-goers year round. Performing comes naturally to Lucas and the rest of the troupe, who’ve been doing it for as long as Lucas can remember.



But there’s something Lucas doesn’t know.



Like the rest of Luca’s friends, he’s dead. And for some reason, Lucas can’t remember his former life, his parents or friends. Did he go to school? Have a dog? Brothers and sisters?



If only he could recall his former life, maybe even reach out to his parents, haunt them.



When a ghost hunter determines to shut the show down, Lucas realizes the life he has might soon be over. And without a connection to his family, he will have nothing. There’s little time and Lucas has much to do. Can he win the love of Columbine, the show’s enchanting fifteen-year-old mystic? Can he outwit the forces of life and death that thwart his efforts to find his family?



Keep the lights on! Lucas Mackenzie’s coming to town.

My Publishing Journey or How I Became a Published Author 


Meg Cabot (The Princess Diaries and many others) is from here in Bloomington, IN, so I wrote and asked her about her road to success. She suggested that I purchase Jeff Herman’s Guide to Publishers, Editors, and Literary Agents and, from that, to pick an agent. I submitted drafts to various agents until one said yes, Anna Olswanger. Anna worked hard with me re editorial changes to the manuscript to make it saleable and then began submitting it to publishers. Although there were rejections along the way, I was impressed that the publishers took Anna and the manuscript seriously. Eventually Anna found the perfect home for this book, Month9Books, run by Georgia McBride. Georgia assigned an editor, Jackie Morse Kessler, and I worked with Jackie for nearly a year until the manuscript was in final shape. I am now working with a publicist, Jaime Arnold, and the book is due out November 18.
