FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Joshua Patrick Dudley celebrates the release of his novel, Lost In Oz and
appears in the “got milk?” ad campaign!
August 1, 2007— Joshua Patrick Dudley, a 21-year-old New Hampshire resident,
has released his first book, Lost in Oz. Since it’s release on July 15,
it has sold over 40,000 copies. When four friends find themselves
lost in a mysterious place, their only goal is to find a way home.
When the only way home is through a young girl and
her magical shoes, how much are they willing to sacrifice to catch her?
The book is available everywhere now. Including all online retailers.
Recently, Joshua has been traveling around to New Hampshire schools,
speaking with students grades 3-12 about Lost in Oz and creative writing.
The response was overwhelming.
“The students really enjoyed Joshua and his presentation,”
Carol Soucey, principle of Hooksett Memorial School,
gushed about her former student. “They especially loved that Joshua created
a new short story in every class, with the aid of the students, of course.”
On the weekend of July 14th, Joshua appeared in Lancaster, New York
as the Lancaster Opera House hosted The Wizard of Oz Festival.
Joshua sold out of books, signed autographs and
discussed his thought process while writing the novel.
Joshua is also scheduled to appear at the Chesterton, Indiana Oz Festival
later this year in September. For now, he is busy with his new fame.
Joshua recently appeared in not one, but two, “got milk?” ads.
The first featuring him, Lost In Oz and a white milk mustache.
The second ad features a younger side of Joshua, up-close
with a chocolate milk mustache.
After appearing in the milk ads, Joshua decided to start his own campaign.
“got books?” Focuses on the importance of reading in a child’s life,
whether they read themselves or if their parents read to them. More information about
the campaign can be found the ook’s official site.
