April 24, 2010 - PRLog -- Joshua Patrick Dudley, author of the Lost in Oz trilogy, will be making two stops in the Syracuse, New York area this year! First in June, Joshua will appear at Chittenango’s Oz-Stravaganza from the 4th through the 6th. Chittenango is the birthplace of original Oz author, L. Frank Baum. Mr. Dudley will be appearing in the newest attraction at the event, the Author’s Alley. www.Oz-Stravaganza.com
The 24-year-old author will also appear at The Wonderful Weekend of Oz, in Fayetteville, NY, from October 8th-10th. He will be signing and selling copies of his first book, Lost in Oz, at both events. The stories follow modern teenagers Tamara, Joshua, Tommy and Laura as they make their own history in Oz after destroying the original story of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, simply by existing in it.  Both his first and second novel, Rise of the Dark Wizard, can be found online at the books’ official website: www.LostinOzBook.com or at other online retailers like www.amazon.com.
The stories have gained quite a following from middle-school students across the country, some of whom have even had Joshua teach in their classrooms! Joshua promotes his novels by visiting middle schools and teaching creative workshops with children from grades 3-10. The classes then create their own stories with Joshua’s guidance.
Now the author is holding a contest, he says, “to give something back to all of my young readers.” The contest is a chance to win a cameo role, by name, in the final Lost in Oz novel, Temple of the Deadly Desert. The contest is open to any age.
To enter the contest, you must write a 200-500 word essay explaining who your character would be in Oz. All entries should be submitted with your full name, age, email address, mailing address and essay, and should be sent to LostinOzCameo@yahoo.com. The winner will be selected by the author and will be notified by email January 1, 2011.
