The first 6 books in my new series, Danica Panica, will be released on Oct. 11, 2023, by Bakken Books, with a presale to take place two weeks earlier. Here's a quick overview of the series, which is aimed at girls ages 6-9:
Danica Panica has a problem that she’s afraid to tell people about—because being afraid is exactly her problem!
And here are the titles of the first 6 books:
Below is a rough sketch of the cover for "Danica Panica and the First Day of School," book 1 in a new series I wrote that's coming out this fall from Bakken Books. It's a humorous series in the style of Junie B. Jones written for girls 6-8 who struggle with anxiety issues. In each book, Danica strives to overcome a new fear as only she can. Books 1-6 will be released simultaneously, so you can binge them just like a Netflix show. Stay tuned!
It's based on a character named Danica Panica, and it's directed at girls ages 6-8, particularly those who, like Danica, struggle with anxiety. Each book contains a humorous story about Danica confronts and overcomes one of her many fears. The first six books in the series will be coming out this September from Bakken Books, the new publisher of the Milligan Creek Series.
The Danica Panica series will be illustrated by Hannah Doerksen, who has also done covers for Milligan Creek and my Uncanny Icons series as well as my children's picture book, Randolph the Yellow Snowman. To give you a sneak peek, here's one of the interior images from Danica Panica and the Big Fat Hen.
I always like to see where other writers work. Here's where I work. it's up in a loft above our main living area, so let's just say I have my Airpods in a lot of the time. And I've pretty much run out of wall space for all my comics, etc., but there's always room for one more cool thing . . .
The first six books in the Milligan Creek series are now available for pre-order from my new publisher, Bakken Books. Check it out!
Here's a brief quote:
There’s something about Kevin Miller’s middle-grade books that bring a giant grin to my face. It might be the nostalgia, the comedy, or the delightful Canadian read, but regardless these books are a hoot. It’s sometimes hard to believe we are seven books deep in this series, but they only continue to get more fun and better! The hijinks of this small Canadian town and its residents are absolutely hilarious and pretty relatable. Adults and kids alike will enjoy this book (and series!), which is packed with friendship, comedy, and adventures.

Doug Brode, the storyboard artist behind films like Looper, The Maze Runner, Iron Man, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek, Thor, and Pet Sematary, among many others, has just released Children of the Ship, the third book in his science-fiction trilogy. If you enjoy character-driven philosophical speculation in the midst of a gripping near-future hard sci-fi plot, this is the series for you.
