Dear Reader,

Do you remember a few years ago when the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots were approximately half a billion each? My family got swept up in the frenzy and we had a blast imagining how we'd blow through our millions if we won. An around-the-world vacation topped my spending list. My new novel, MILLIONAIRES FOR THE MONTH, grew from these fun conversations.

In the book, an eccentric billionaire challenges two kids to spend $5,368,709.12 in 30 days. While the boys certainly have a good time with their new found (temporary) wealth, I loved exploring the things money can't buy: true friendship, more time, a dog's love.

So, how would you spend $5 million in a month? I hope you find the story to be both thought-provoking and daydream-provoking.

Over and out,
Stacy McAnulty,
Author of The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl
