I'm bloggin'! So there must be a good reason, right?
The answer is yes. Yes, a very good reason, indeed.
And the reason is this:
"What is DPK?" you ask. "Is it a secret anagram? Or acronym? Does it stand for Dr. Pepper King? or Delicate Platypus Kingdom?"
"No, no, no, dear friend," I reply. "These are the initials of dear friend, David Powers King. The man. The myth. The legend. See."
"What a nice looking young man with an epic nickname," you say. "Tell me more about the legend of DPK."
"Where do I start? How about with bullet points?!"
- Once upon a time DPK wrote a fantasy book with a friend Michael Jensen.
- They sold the book to a small publisher who turned out to be unprofessional (i.e. unfairly discriminatory since they wouldn't publish Michael's biography to include his husband).
- There was public outcry.
- A huge literary agent heard the cry all the way from Utah to NYC and offered to represent DPK and Michael, and obtain a much, much, much better deal with the national and highly respected publisher Scholastic.
- The book, WOVEN, released last month and is receiving all kinds of amazing reviews like this one: "It’s not often that you read a fantasy that feels as epic and original as Woven by King and Jensen. Clever, well-paced, and full of intrigue, it’s a superb read. Highly recommended."
—James Dashner, author of The Maze Runner
