MONSTER WAR is out in the UK!

MONSTER WAR (book 3 of the NIGHTMARE ACADEMY series) is finally available on store shelves in the UK. This completes the first trilogy of NIGHTMARE ACADEMY books and fans of the series will see many things wrapped up, as well as the direction of what I hope will be a second trilogy at some point. If you enjoy reading the books as much as I've enjoyed writing them, please tell your friends. Also, if you're interested in ordering online, I have some links on the home page of my website.

MONSTER WAR will be out in the US in the summer of 2010 and, later, in the over 20 countries where NIGHTMARE ACADEMY is published. Believe me, I'm VERY eager for everyone to get their hands on the book. I love all the books but, between you and me, MONSTER WAR is my favorite.

I get a good deal of email asking me to make sense of all the different editions of the various books between the US and the UK. If you're interested in that, you can find a guide to the various editions after the cut.

Okay, NIGHTMARE ACADEMY book 1 was originally published in the US under the title NIGHTMARE ACADEMY and it looked like this:

A year later, a new edition of the same book came out in the US and was retitled NIGHTMARE ACADEMY: MONSTER HUNTERS. It looks like this:

In the UK, book 1 is called NIGHTMARE ACADEMY: CHARLIE'S MONSTERS and it looks like this:


As for book 2, in the US it is called NIGHTMARE ACADEMY: MONSTER MADNESS and it looks like this:

In the UK, book 2 is called NIGHTMARE ACADEMY: MONSTER REVENGE and it looks like this:

So, again to sum up, NIGHTMARE ACADEMY: MONSTER MADNESS and NIGHTMARE ACADEMY: MONSTER REVENGE are the same book -- book 2.

Now, on to book 3! In the US, when it comes out in the summer of 2010, book 3 will be called MONSTER WAR and it will look like this:

In the UK, where it's currently out (as of today -- yay!) it is also called MONSTER WAR and it looks like this:

Whew! I hope that clears up any confusion that people might have over the various editions.

One last thing -- I thought I would mention that, in addition to writing and producing 'TIL DEATH, I started work as a writer/producer on a new TV series for the Fox network called BROTHERS. It stars Daryll "Chill" Mitchell, Michael Strahan (yep, from the NFL), Carl Weathers and CCH Pounder.

They're all terrific folks and I'm having a blast working with them. Look for the show on Fox this fall.

So, busy times but a lot of good stuff. I hope you all enjoy MONSTER WAR. Also, if you haven't seen it yet, scroll down to check out some great new NIGHTMARE ACADEMY art by the brilliant J.P. Targete.

Take care...

Giorgio suggested I talk with you about a possible audition one of your seven television shows. I am willing to do nudity.

That's not a selling point. :)

that's clears my confusion so thanks, but what i don't get is why can't they have the same version sold all around the world, instead of all these different versions when it just confuses people.

Well, there are different publishers for the series in each of the different countries that it's published in, and they all like to do their own thing. :)

Publication of your book in Italy
Hey Dean, can you please tell me the name of the publishing house that is caring for the translation of Monster War into Italian? We are fond of your books but we haven't seen the third published in Italy. Please let me know. Thank you.

Re: Publication of your book in Italy
Hi there! The Italian publisher is Mondadori and they certain put out beautiful editions of the books. I don't know when MONSTER WAR is scheduled to be published there. If there's an Italian Amazon, they might list it. If you find out, please let me know! Take care...
