“Squirrel Mafia”: Release has been delayed


Always order a proof of your book. Always. I just received the proof copy of Squirrel Mafia. The content, the front and back cover are awesome. The color version of the book is amazing but expensive hence why we created a black and white copy of the book. But in the black and white copy some of the pictures need to be fixed so we will be revisiting them.

So while the release was planned for August 12th, we are moving it a bit to get it done right. This probably involves going out into the wild to take more pictures of these little demons from hell.

I rather move my release date and have a product I can be proud off. Why would you not order a proof? I’m not sure but there are authors out there who feel this is not needed. I disagree. I will always get a proof of each book.

The good part of receiving my proof yesterday was the fact my in-laws were in town. One of the chapters is dedicated to my father in law’s mother. He said down and read it as he chuckled. They both love it. That made my day.

Soon I will be able to give them a copy, a decent copy, so they can read the entire book.

happy new year images 2013

Happy Happy New Year every one. It is officially 2013. A chance for us to start fresh one more time. It is to be filled with a lot of hope, good cheer and spirits. Let’s face it 2012 was rough for all of us. Across this great country people lost loved ones, workers got laid off or lost their jobs completely to those getting very sick  If that was not bad enough all one had to do was pick up the newspaper or watch the news to see the constant tragedy that plagues our world.

Each January however, many of us fill our hearts and mind with the prospect that this will be a better year. This includes me. Without hope where would we be? I am huddled in a corner afraid to look outside the window.  So Happy New Year every one, I hope 2013 is better for your families and yourself. Make a small list of resolutions or a million. Even if you fail at completing them at least for a small moment in time when you made that list you had good vibes for the future. I personally think that counts, a lot.

2013 here I come.
