Name: M.D. Payne
What he’s doing: Monster Juice is a series of funny gross-out horror books for children aged 8-10. The first three books, Fear the Barfitron, Fartsunami, and Boogers from Beyond are available in stores now. Burpstronauts comes out this summer.
“My goal is to draw young readers in with outrageous horror humor and get them to read at a higher level without even knowing it”.
What he needs: “I really need promotion. The books are out there (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Walmart, Wegmans, Krogers, etc.) and the kids are responding really positively. But I’ve yet to reach a tipping point”.
How we’re helping: Dollar Shave Club is giving M.D. $500 to buy a fog machine and sound effects machine for school visits.
How you can help: Buy his books!
