First of all, it’s been literally over 2 years since I have posted anything here. It took me until the last part of 2020 to get my creative juices flowing enough to act on them. Why you may ask? 2019 was probably the harshest year of my life. My dad died in March; my mama died in June. I instantly became a Pseudo-Mom to my autistic sister. I lived in two states for while. Had to find a a new place to live. Then in 2020: The Pandemic started in March. I had my first major surgery in July. Recovery took a few months. But anyhoo, it’s now 2021, so Happy New Year! Today we changed Presidents. And we have our first woman Vice President! Historical! That’s all I am going to say about that.
A New Children’s Book!
I am super excited to announce that Drawkcab Brown Meets Yuck Mouth Pete is available for pre-order. It’s the sequel to my first Children’s book, Drawkcab Brown Stops a Bully. In this story, Drawkcab travels west and encounters a mean outlaw named Yuck Mouth Pete. It’s up to Drawkcab to stop Pete from terrorizing his new friends, the citizens of Cloverville.
Will Drawkcab save the day again? Or this time will the villain win? One will triumph; One will retreat, when Drawkcab Brown Meets Yuck Mouth Pete!
It’s a rhyming good time with a western twist and some fun surprises along the way!
An Audiobook too!
Also, I just finished approving the master copy of the audiobook. This time I waited until the project was in post-production to announce anything about it. Not to repeat what happened with my novel, The Wages or the Gift (Audiobook still to come.) The audiobook is Narrated by James Cogan also known as Storyteller Jim Cogan, who has a long career of reading books to children. He even does workshops on bullying. Which is awesome, because thwarting bullies is Drawkcab’s favorite thing to do! Jim was awesome to work with, and he did an excellent job on the book. Stay tuned for more information on the release.
To the Drawing Board!
This month, I am working on the pictures for Drawkcab Brown’s Astounding Defeat of Peg Leg Petey and His Pirating Keet! It is the third Drawkcab Brown book and the first Drawkcab Brown Musical (Produced in 2015 by Spotlight Children’s Theatre in Tulsa, OK).
Also, Sharon Howard, my aunt and an amazing artist, has been working diligently on the pictures for yet another of my children’s books: Lucy Meets a Stinker. Lucy is a Luvbug, and she is pretty adorable. Her bug sound is, “luv, luv, luv”, her head is heart shaped, and she is super kind and sweet. Luvbug’s are loving by nature, of course. 😉 I will have more information on this book and Lucy after the illustrations are done.
