An Intriguing New Graphic Novel about Nicola Tesla

My multi-talented agent, Abigail Samoun, and fellow Red Fox Literary illustrator, Elizabeth Haidle, have an exciting project in the works!Their book, Mind Afire, is about scientist/inventor Nicola Tesla; and should appeal to children's book enthusiasts, graphic novel collectors, science geeks, steampunk fans, librarians, teachers and, of course, kids!  When Abigail and Elizabeth discovered they were both intrigued by the story of this eccentric, turn of the (20th) century genius, they decided his story would be perfect for a graphic novel. I think so too. I love Elizabeth's illustrations and can't wait to read the finished text.

Check out the book's animated trailer, introductory video by the author and illustrator, and sample pages from the book at Kickstarter. Abi and Elizabeth have already reached their initial goal, but are hoping for more pre-sales so they can make it an even more fabulous book!

Mind Afire: The Visions of Nicola Tesla is pre-selling on Kickstarter throughout March!
