Winx Novelizations!

Back in 2013, I wrote two novelizations for Nickelodeon’s animated show Winx Club, each covering an entire season of the fairies’ and specialists’ magical adventures.

I was impressed with the storytelling and characters back then, and I was very pleased to watch the new Netflix show Fate: The Winx Saga, which was super fun . . . even if I like the original animated version better. The Netflix storyline is very similar to the plot of my novelization Winx Club: The Power of Dragon Flame, which progresses through Bloom learning to understand and control her powers while negotiating her relationships with the headmistress, her parents, Stella, Musa, Flora, Techna, Aisha, Riven, and Sky. The book goes further into Alfea’s war with the evil witches, though.

The second novelization I wrote was called Winx Club: Beware the Shadow Phoenix, which continues Bloom and her powerful friends’ adventures as they welcome a new classmate (Roxy) and battle a dark lord.

New Recess Heroes Cover and Spanish Version!

A major cover refresh for Recess Heroes Face the Moon Fumes, my middle-grade science fiction adventure chapter book with adorable art from original illustrator Rima Salloum, is in the works for release in the near future. I like that it shows more action than the previous cover — and shows Brett, the newest Recess Hero, literally facing a Moon Fume. I do miss all the guys being on the front, but at least the whole team is on the back cover.

In other exciting news, the book was translated into Spanish by Hernán Echavarría. The Spanish version, Los Héroes
del Recreo contra los gases de la Luna
, will be available soon from Brighten Press.

This Wonder Woman 1984 trailer released today looks so awesome.

Remember, my new book Wonder Woman: The Way of the Amazons was approved to tie-in to the movie, and the hardcover is available now. Discover the intense backstory of the Amazons and Themyscira that made our heroine who she is!

The hardcover history book Wonder Woman: The Way of the Amazons is available now on Amazon, of course.

Nice Early Review of Wonder Woman: The Way of the Amazons!

Great to see this preview video review from The Aspiring Kryptonian, Tasmin Humphries, on her YouTube channel, which I first found because she tagged me from her Instagram account. In the review, she seems very pleased by the beautiful art and comprehensive facts in my upcoming hardcover history Wonder Woman: The Way of the Amazons from Insight Editions, and she does a great job highlighting its best features. Thanks for your kind words, Tasmin! You definitely made my day.

Wonder Woman: The Way of the Amazons will be released officially on August 4, 2020.

I think we’re up and running! I’ve added all my children’s books over the past few days — quite an undertaking, given there were 106 to categorize on this site. I’ve written more, but those were under pseudonyms other than J. E. Bright, or were in online or app formats that no longer exist, or are no longer available for other reasons.

Please let me know if you have any trouble navigating the site. The book filtering system was the biggest headache in making this new home on WordPress, and I hope it works for you. Please let me know, too, if you see any weird transitions between desktop, tablet, or phone access. I’ve tried to make this site as responsive to different devices as possible, but that’s not always so easy.

Next up: moving my recommendations for other author’s children’s books over to this site, and reinstating my authors’ shrines.

Thanks for your patience during this changeover, and thanks for reading!

-J. E.
