I'm going to Miami! My awesome business partner and co-collaborator Mary Huckstep has been working tirelessly to promote our recent book, Mary Mary Quite: On Raising Children (And Other Mind-Altering Substances). And her efforts have paid off! The book has won a number of awards, including one that I'm particularly proud of: the gold illustration award at Reader's Favorite! They have a page set up for our book here -- check it out! There's a brilliant review by Cheryl E. Rodriguez and a silver medal for non-fiction humor as well. The award ceremony is in Miami. Mary and I will both be there. We'll be further promoting the book of course, in part by handing out the above postcard that I designed during a snow day off of work (still teaching art and loving it!). And if you're in the area, we'll also be having a book signing a local bookstore called "The Bible Emporium" on Saturday, November 21st.
P.S. This is my first illustration award and I'm pumped. If you see me, buy me a dirty chai (that's a chai tea latte with a shot of espresso) -- it's my favorite drink and a fitting congratulations. :-)
Good news! My newly illustrated book has now been recognized as an Amazon Bestseller in the categories of "Humor" and "Parenting and Family." To celebrate, we're having a 20% sale on all versions of the book -- from audio book to paperback to deluxe hardcover -- that sell from the author's website, Mary Huckstep.com. Sale ends on January 31st. To access that sale, just click on the above image, which is a closer look at the cover illustration of Mary Mary Quite: On Raising Children (and other mind-altering substances).
Also, thanks to everyone who helped our book become a runaway hit during the big giveaway event last weekend. We gave out over 6,000 free copies of the e-book version and have now received more than 20 wonderful reviews on Amazon! Of course, it's not too late to get a great deal on the e-book -- the Kindle version is less than $6 right now. Or you can click here and get a deluxe hardcover version of the book from the author's website at 20% off. Either way, it's a great read, makes a great gift, and is full of great art!
It's finally here... the three day free book event that will alter your mind with outrageously colorful illustrations and hilariously narrated escapades. Get your free e-book version (and free e-reader along with it if you don't have a Kindle or anything like that) of this lovingly crafted collection of mini-memoirs on the fun and foibles of family life. Author Mary Huckstep and I put a lot of joy into this book and you'll get a lot of joy out of it. Don't hesitate -- get your free copy before it's too late! It's on me! :-)
WHAT A STEAL! The book I illustrated, MARY MARY QUITE: On Raising Children (And Other Mind-Altering Substances), will be FREE ON KINDLE, Jan 9-13. I'll post the link THIS FRIDAY, along with a free e-reader app you can use on a computer, phone, or tablet (if you don't have a Kindle). All reviews, however brief, will be appreciated.
