CJ's Treasure Chase-smaller

Book 1 – Coming 8/30/16!

YOU GUYS! I’m so so so excited to announce that I’m writing a brand new original series for Disney Press based on the hit Disney Channel movie, DESCENDANTS!

If you know me, you know I’m a HUGE Disney fan (see photo evidence below). So this opportunity was literally a dream come true.

The series will be called “School of Secrets” and the first two book covers have just been revealed! The first book, CJ’S TREASURE CHASE will be released in stores on August 30, 2016 (That’s like in a month!) and the second book, FREDDIE’S SHADOW CARDS will be released in stores on November 1, 2016!

The School of Secrets series of chapter books continues the story of Mal and her friends, plus new Villain kids and Auradon kids introduced in the popular Wicked World short form videos. Enjoy these all-new tales of mystery, magic and adventure from the world of the hit movie Descendants!

  2. Hi, Jessica —
    Congratulations. Speaking as a fellow Disney fan (who lives practically at the backdoor of DISNEY WORLD), I imagine you’re floating a few feet off the ground. Is it Marty Poppins? Tinker bell? No, it’s Jessica Brody!

    PS – Thanks for your writing productivity advice. It’s working!

    Best wishes for your continued success,

  3. I would like to get a Star Wars book I am writing to get looked at, and I would like to also know whether or not it would be considered canon. Could you help me with finding someone who has the authority to look at it and decide if it is canon?

  4. Hi- Jessica I’m a big fan of descendants and the books. I’m missing a lot of books from descendants.But, wow I’m so excited to read your new descendants book. I was wondering if you would let have book from your collection.

    • Hi – thanks for the nice note about the series. I wish I could spare a copy, but I don’t get many copies of the books. Maybe used book stores would have old copies of some of the previous ones. Amazon lists used copies too. Or try your library. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for reading the books!

  5. Thanks so much! I’m really excited!
