Humor Bible sources have uncovered that B.J. Rowling, cousin to J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame, has a new book soon to be released by Olympia Publishers of London. The title of the book is “The Misfit Tribe and the Secret of Mystery Island”, written by herself and her co-author, D. G. Lloyd. This is the first in a series of five young adult fantasy adventure novels.
We recently had exclusive access to B.J. Rowling and asked her a few questions:
Humor Bible: “Congratulations on your book release. When will the book be available worldwide?”
B.J.: “Thanks so much! it’s being released on October 25th and available through Amazon, Waterstones, Barnes and Noble and wherever books are sold!”
Humor Bible: “What is the series about? Can you give us a little info?”
B.J.: “Absolutely! The first book is really if you can imagine, a “Goonies” meets “National Treasure”. A group of best friends go geocaching on Michigan’s beautiful Mackinac Island and discover not only treasure but also the essence of themselves, special powers and deep family secrets”
Humor Bible: “Did you get any input from your famous cousin on your book series?”
B.J.: “No, but she knows about it and I really hope to get her involved at some point, maybe as an executive producer. Obviously, she’s quite busy with her own numerous projects. But, it would be fantastic! I mean, she’s so talented and has really inspired me to fulfill my dream.”
Humor Bible: “ I hear a rumor that you’re already in the works for a movie for the first book, “The Misfit Tribe Secret of Mystery Island”. Is that true?”
B.J.: “Yes! It’s a really exciting time! We have a movie deal in the works and plan to begin shooting in the Spring of 2019, with a release date of either Thanksgiving or Christmas 2019. My co-author, D.G. Lloyd and I also wrote the screenplay. We are currently in talks with some Hollywood top producers and directors. It’s been a long road for us to get to this point, but truly worth every harrowing day.”
Humor Bible: “Oh! That’s really exciting! I’m looking forward to the book and then the subsequent movie! Where can the public get a copy of your book?”
B.J.: “Well, as soon as it comes out on October 25th. You may also be able to pre-order it on certain websites. If the bookstore you go to doesn’t have a copy of it, let them know and they’ll order it.”
Humor Bible: “Thanks for taking the time out to chat to us today. I’m sure the book will be a new bestseller!”
B.J.: “From your mouth to God’s ears! D. G. Lloyd and I hope readers really enjoy the tribe’s magical adventures! And thank you very much! It was a true pleasure”
