Wow, there is so much that I need to update you about. First of all, thank you all for your patience over the past few months for my lack of updates. I had been spending the summer at the Sudbury Market in downtown Sudbury! It was such a great experience . I loved the interactions I had with each and everyone of you who stopped by as the summer went by. For those who are not aware, I will not be a regular participant for the Winter Market as I have elected to focus more on my work so I can continue to produce new books and other content for all of my fans.
New Book Launch!
Speaking of new books….. I am pleased to announce that The Adventures of Rabbit Girl: Clever Jinny is finally done!!! Launch date to be announced. I am working with the printers right now to get the earliest launch date available. I will be updating you as we move forward. In the meantime, please feel free pre-purchase your copy of the Clever Jinny!! I will add a local delivery option in the coming days and will have a signing party in Sudbury, Ontario for you to pick up your copy of the book. Details to follow!!!
On your left (or above on mobile devices) you should see a picture of the cover. Yes, it is true. I am the one who illustrated the cover. The interior was done by the talented Raisa M Salvador. Moving forward we have agreed to part ways. This means that I will be illustrating my books for the foreseeable future. I am really excited to get back into artwork, and I feel I have found myself again.
This also means that there is a lot more to come in the future as I continue to develop new work in addition to completing the Rabbit Girl story arc. Here’s a little hint…. The story is starting to heat up in Clever Jinny. I hope you all enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed working on it!
Tommy and the Christmas Coal Anniversary
About a week and a half ago, the first anniversary for my first book, Tommy and the Christmas Coal passed. To celebrate I knew that I would need to do something super awesome (yes, I did say super awesome). Can I get a drum roll please?
Hard covers!! Yes, that is right, I have partnered with a new on demand printer that does hard covers!! Woohoo! I am so excited that I will get to share my work with you in hard cover.
When I first started this journey I thought I was destined to be a paperback writer. Now that I will join the ranks of the hard cover club, I may have to up my game. Does this mean that I will need to smoke a pipe and write in a satin pajamas and a suede smoking jacket? Only time will tell!!!
That is it for what I can announce today, however stay tuned. I have dedicated myself to spend more time on my work and will have much more to share in the near future. Thank you all for joining me on this journey as I continue to develop as an author/illustrator. Without you and your support I would still be a guy plucking away at the keys without a direction to write in.
