I wish you all a happy holiday season and hope in the next year you are fruitful in all your endeavors.

The season is well underway, we’ve been so busy with life that we forget other things, like updating our web pages.

Publishing is a tedious process, and it seems things don’t move as fast as they should. Who am I to stifle the process by tapping feet, and emailing Ingram, constantly, thereby causing more delays, albeit inadvertent. So until all of that is resolved we are considering the book in “soft launch” status.

My Brother’s Stinky T-Shirt is now available in print from Amazon, and will soon be available at any bookstore and library. If you buy the print edition from Amazon, you get the Kindle ebook version free. This offer is exclusive to Amazon customers.

There remains a free unillustrated version wandering around ebook sites, but I assure you it won’t be around much longer. So get it quickly. Who am I to take it away without warning? The free version was a great validation of my writing ambitions, it hit bestseller status the first day, and returned to the number one spot regularly. Availability will continue until mid-January when it will go to that writer’s colony in the sky with many of my other darlings.

So what’s next? I still have plans to release two more children picture books in 2018 and 2019, but not focusing solely on them.

I have an adult pulp fiction series in the works. It isn’t super risqué, but definitely not for the kiddos. The installments will be in ebook format and come available as they are produced. They should sell for 99 cents each. After several are released, I intend to make them available in print as a compilation.

And those who have been waiting for the supernatural thriller, I work on it often and should make an announcement in this regard sometime this fall.

Thank you for your continued support.
