Rise of the Dark Wizard Press Release

Joshua Patrick Dudley continues to give a fresh look to the stories of Oz with the release of his second book, Lost in Oz: Rise of the Dark Wizard.

Nashua, NH —2008— Joshua Patrick Dudley, a 22-year-old New Hampshire resident, is gearing for the release of his second book, Lost in Oz: Rise of the Dark Wizard

Told in first person, present tense, Rise of the Dark Wizard picks up where the first book left off. Joshua, Tamara, Tommy and Laura have been trapped in Mifkets Asylum for some time and have been trying to find any means of escape. Unfortunately for Joshua, his friends find a way out but he must remain alone in the asylum while the others return to Oz in search of Glinda’s Great Book of Records which keeps track of every event that happens in Oz as it happens. Their goal is to erase the fact that they were ever in Oz by tearing the pages from the book that contain their story. The Dark Wizard, the newest and most evil villain to ever set foot on Oz soil is also searching for the Great Book of Records to set all of Oz’s most evil deeds into motion at once. Can Joshua return to Oz and aid his friends in destroying his prophecy or is Oz forever doomed?

Full of twists, turns and many unexpected plot points, Rise of the Dark Wizard promises to revive the Fantasy genre that has lost steam since the end of Harry Potter. The second book also boasts interior illustrations (photo-manips) created by the author himself!

The book will be available at all online book retailers beginning March 13, 2008 and is available for purchase online now at
