Jacob Wonderbar for President of the Universe



Coming on April 12th... JACOB WONDERBAR FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSE!!

(And yes, that's a space monkey in the top right corner)

Presidential campaigns are all fun and games until someone threatens to blow up your home planet

When Jacob Wonderbar receives a message that he's been nominated for President of the Universe, he, Sarah Daisy, and Dexter immediately return to space. But Jacob's archnemesis, Prince Mick Cracken, is running as well, and his campaign tactics involve kidnappings and rogue space monkeys.

After surviving corndog-eating contests and insult debates, Jacob discovers the stakes for this election are even higher than he imagined: A military group wants to destroy Planet Earth, and the President of the Universe is the only person who can stop them. Hold on to your space helmet!

I'm so grateful to Christopher S. Jennings for his amazing illustrations and Greg Stadnyk for the cover design.

OMG. I could drown in the awesome. Is that a MONKEY at the upper right corner?

magpiewrites said...

Wow, Nathan. It looks so amazing! Congratulations.

Munk said...

Power tie.

Sommer Leigh said...

This cover is fantastic :-) I love covers like this over stock photography.

I love the Jacob Wonderbar font. It's a ridiculous notion, but I can't help but judge covers by their font.

Emily Hill said...

Hilarious Fun...Your posts and progress brighten the day of sooo many writers. Congratulations on being so clever! ;D

Stephen Parrish said...

I love it. And the title too.

Looks great!

Ishta Mercurio said...

Very cool! Congrats.

Anita Saxena said...

Congratulations! LOVE the cover and the space monkey!

Katherine Hyde said...

Congratulations! I feel like I know exactly the tone of the book from seeing the cover. Would that all covers worked so well!

Josin L. McQuein said...

Is he still running on the corndog ticket, or did he change his platform to quantum bananas to increase popularity with the space monkeys?

Looks like you got a great illustrator, Nathan. Congrats.

Nate Wilson said...

Hooray for space monkeys!

Translation: 'Tis a wonderful cover, Nathan.

D.G. Hudson said...

Congrats,that's a perfect cover. Doesn't every young boy want to be president of the universe?

Makes me wonder what's left for Jacob to conquer after that? (hope he doesn't go for an empire next. . . a la Star Wars)

Best wishes for your success as an author, Nathan.

Sara said...

Awesome!!

Matthew MacNish said...

Very cool, congrats Nathan!

Yat-Yee said...

Monkey!

Love the cover. This is the first I'd heard of your sequel. Congrats!

Bryce Daniels said...

Congrats, Nathan! This looks like a great read! (Already looking forward to snuggling up with my grandchildren over it, showing them what wonderful worlds the written word can create) Forgive the alliteration.

The Pen and Ink Blog said...

Wow! I love forward thought. I only wanted to be Queen of the World

Jennifer Jackson said...

How wonderful for you! How long have you known?

Rebecca Stroud said...

Just curious, Nathan...with all you know about electronic publishing, why you didn't do this book "yourself" rather than wait for it to debut a year from now?

Jenny Maloney said...

Josin: Is it bad of me to say that I'd totally vote for a guy running on the Corndog Ticket?

Marilyn Peake said...

Cool! Congratulations!

L.G.Smith said...

What a fun cover! Very nice. Congrats on book 2.

Nathan Bransford said...

Rebecca-

Lots of reasons, but I'll plan to blog about that at some point.

jesse said...

Congrats, it looks fun - though I wunder, is the universe ready for a German president?

Kaitlyne said...

Congrats. :D

Michael G-G said...

It is a great cover!

Kristin Laughtin said...

Great cover! Congrats!

Jen said...

So cool! I also love the unenthusiastic guy in grey!

Sean said...

Looks awesome! I was thinking the same thing as Rebecca. Going to be a long wait to hit shelves, but you know what they say...good things come to those who waitress.

Kristi Helvig said...

I can't believe you have a space monkey on the cover of your book...you really can't get much cooler than that. Congrats--it's awesome!

Michael Offutt said...

LOL despite being what I think is way too old to read these books and having no kids, I'm going to buy them just out of principle. Good job Nathan and your cover artist rocks.

Tana Adams said...

President of the universe has always been my dream. Excellent work my friend.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Awesome cover. I'm waiting for the first one to come out so I can read it.

Cheree said...

Oh cool. Anything with space monkeys is definitely worthy.

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

So. Awesome. :) Can't wait for #1!

Laura Martone said...

Congrats, Nathan! The cover looks terrific. Of course, anything involving a space monkey gets my vote. :-)

ashelynn sanford said...

love the cover and title!! I can't wait for Jacob Wonderbar #1. :)

Congratulations!

The experience of seeing a new cover never gets old. :-)

Can't wait to get the book for my grandson, he's 4.

Congratulations!

Hugs,
Tambra

Neil Larkins said...

Okay. Because I like you I'll withdraw my candidate, Richard Moberly, the hero of my soon-to-be-epublished "Mouse Hole." I'll nominate him for president of the parallel universe instead. Good going!

Sally Hepworth said...

Awesome. Jacob has my vote :)

Marian Pearson Stevens said...

Completely awesome, Nathan! Congrats! I have a nephew in mind for this!

I dunno people, I hear there's already a controversy about hanging chads in Alpha Centauri, and allegations that Jacob was really born in an alternate Universe.

Maya said...

Congrats, Nathan! Can't wait to check both of them out!

Adam Heine said...

"(And yes, that's a space monkey in the top right corner)"

Writers helping writers.

Awesome! Congrats, Nathan!

Meghan Ward said...

Congrats, Nathan! Will you be doing any Bay Area readings? I can't find events listed on your website or the book's FB page.

Nathan Bransford said...

Meghan

Yep, 4/13 Books Inc. Opera Plaza. I'll be doing invites/announcements soon!

Marilyn Peake said...

Congratulations, Nathan! Just in time for Jacob Wonderbar to set out on his own Presidential campaign trail. :)

Mira said...

Oh how wonderful! You have the best cover artist ever - perfect.

I've already pre-ordered it - I can't wait to read it.

Major congratuations, Nathan! :)

Marilyn Peake said...

Whoa. I think Jacob Wonderbar really did break the universe. Not only did I find my comment from today in this thread, I also found my comment dated 2011...and then discovered lots of comments from 2011. Is the universe broken? Are we in two dimensions of time at once? Apparently, your book has superpowers. :)

Kristi Helvig said...

You had me at rogue space monkeys--congrats!

Ryan said...

Congrats man.

Writing posts for this blog seems like it would be a full time job. Don't know how you managed another novel and have a day job. Oh yeah...I don't think you have kids!

D.G. Hudson said...

Congrats, Nathan, but I'm confused why some of those dates on the comments show 2011?
Blogger problem?

Best of luck with 'President of the Universe', hope Jacob's platform is better than most politicians.

Nathan Bransford said...

Oh - sorry for the confusion, this is an old post I updated with new info and republished.

D.G. Hudson said...

Thanks for the explanation, Nathan. I thought maybe Jacob had caused a time travel problem. Hmm.

Nicole said...

Congrats Nathan! It's gotta feel great to see this one come to life.

wendy said...

Wow - so exciting! Congratulations, Nathan. Could there be Jacob Wonderbar the animated movie coming our way soon? And why not? Kids love this story with its brilliant and original mix of fantasy, humour and loveable characters.

Bryan Russell said...

I just told my daughter, and she's pretty excited!

Naja Tau said...

This is so cool! You are my inspiration, Nathan Bransford. I just published my first novel on Kindle and I hope I have absorbed your blogger/author/agent wisdom well enough to make it a decent read!
