Well here it is. I been dying to release the cover for my book. I wanted to wait until I had the date in place before doing so. The cover stirs up a bunch of warm feelings inside. The picture of Jasper was sketched from a photo I sent to the illustrator. This is a pose he uses often making me wonder what he is thinking or maybe better yet plotting.
Jasper and I are almost there.
I have come up with a release date for my book, “Jasper, Amazon Parrot: A Rainforest Adventure”. The magical day is September 7th of this year.
Just typing that sentence and reading it out loud makes me all warm inside. I plan on buying every version of the book from ebook, to soft copy to hard copy. I want it all!
This has been a long journey and I’m now seeing the fruits of my labor of time, energy and endless meetings with fellow writers whether that be online or in real life.
I look at my bird Jasper and I tell him all the time, “Jasper you are going to be big, I tell ya big. Everyone will be talking about you.”
What he normally does is bend his head so I can pat him. The reward for giving me the material for the book. So long I give him plenty of shelled almonds he and I are good.
Now if I can only figure out how to get him to sign the book, then that be perfect.
