It's been a few months since I posted an update but great things have been coming together!
I am getting incredibly close to making an official announcement about my next book, as well as some other cool things but, until that happens, I wanted to share a couple updates. First off, I can officially announce that my fifth book will be called 'It's Not Goodbye, It's See You Soon' and will address the fear of saying goodbye through the eyes of a young boy named Eddie. I am working with the ridiculously talented Baylee Mastrud for this book and, as you can see, she is a spectacular illustrator!
More about the story will be announced soon so please keep checking back! - N.D.
Thank you all so much for an incredible year this year!!!
2017 brought record sales, the release of a new book and comic series and much, much more. Word is obviously spreading as orders come in from around the world and I cannot thank each and everyone one of you for the support!!!
Here is a rundown of the latest N.D. Byma news:

Earlier today I was reminded by my old friend Facebook that my first book arrived in hardcover four years ago. While I usually don't pay much attention to these reminders of years passed, this one was caught my attention for a couple reasons.
First off, it was surprising to think about the four years between that book arriving and today. I never planned on writing anything besides that one single book but I am now seeing my fifth book come to life in as many years. Second, I never believed that there would be a demand for me to print a second hardcover edition of the book. It was just something silly to do so I could say I did it; nothing more.
What started off as a fun way to write a love letter to my son and other new and stressed-out parents became God's way of sending me on a path I had never dreamed. This silly story opened the floodgates for many more ideas and the incredible support I received inspired me to bring those stories to life.
Thank you King Boogie for being my starting point on this journey. Thank you Liam for giving me all the material I could have dreamed for when I wrote this book and, lastly, thank you to everyone who has purchased this book and told Boogie's story to your loved ones. You wonderful people are why a second hardcover printing was needed and is now available. Thank you!
2017 has been my most successful year as an author, and I owe it all to you...
Thank you so very much for the support, encouragement and continuous referrals that introduce more and more people to my books every day. I cannot begin to tell you how thankful I am for the awesome fans, family and friends who support my writing.
With that said, I have TWO awesome announcements to share with you all!
Announcement number one: Book 5 has been drafted and I have chosen an illustrator to bring this story to life. The title of this book will be "It's Not Goodbye, It's See You Soon." I won't say much more than that for the moment but I am incredibly excited to share this story with you when the time is right. I'm planning on releasing it late Spring 2018 and there will be many more updates between then and now.
Announcement number two: When I printed my first book King Boogie in hardcover years ago, I only printed 100 copies because I didn't expect many people to want it, needless to say, I was wrong. After selling out of the hardcover copies, I reprinted it again in paperback but always felt like it should be a hardcover book like all my others. Well, the time has finally come and I am very proud to say that my next - much larger - printing of King Boogie has been ordered and should be here by the holidays!!!!!
So there you have it! Great things are happening and I haven't even begun to scratch the surface! More announcements coming very soon!!!
The Rock that Rolled Across the Ocean is now available in eBook on Amazon and Kobo as well as in Hardcover on Amazon.
