NEW MUSIC - "Photocopied Conspiracy"

You know what's almost as cool as releasing a new book?

I AM DRUMS Read Alouds For E-Learning!

Dear teachers, parents, and students,

With the support of my publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and my agent, Eddie Schneider, I am thrilled to share read alouds of my debut middle grade novel, I AM DRUMS.

TEACHERS -- it is 100% okay to share this video with your students for e-learning purposes via Google Classroom and/or any other online learning platform during the COVID-19 crisis. 

I am hoping to post one chapter per day, so feel free to view/listen at your own pace. A playlist of all chapters posted thus far is embedded below. Closed captions seem to be working as well, so students with hearing impairments can turn them on if needed.

Please excuse the backwards front cover -- it's a side effect of selfie camera mode! :)

Stay chill and rock out,
Mike
