“Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught, we will realize that we can not eat our money.” Plains Cree Proverb
Hello all and welcome to my monthly journal. A place for me to share 5 points of interest. The quoted passage above caught my attention and resonated with me. In this month’s journal, book promotions, free ebooks and deep discounts. Musical performances that I’m excited about and more…
1.My newest book in the samba dog series Samba in Switzerland will be on sale in May. An Amazon timed sale starts May 24 -27 at sale price of $1.99 and goes up to $2.99 May 27-30, then back to regular price $4.99 after the 30th.
2. Samba on a Snowy Day, book 1 in the series, is part of a free promotion Clean Youth Fiction. There are some wonderful ebooks available for your children.
3. I am looking forward to the New Earth Love Festival and Artisan Market. I’ll be there on June 11 and August 20 with all my books and some prints from the books; illustrator Joshua Miller’s artwork is the featured photo for this month; this is one of the spreads from Samba in Switzerland. This is a great event featuring local artisan goods and it is a fun family event.
4.There are some amazing musical events happening in Toronto and Greater Toronto Area. I’ve got my tickets to Arturo Sandoval, Cuban trumpeter extraordinaire.
Another concert that has piqued my interest, The Garden Little Night Orchestra presents The Legend of Huli.
5. I’m working with illustrator Joshua Miller on my new middle-grade book. We have had a couple of meetings, our most recent just this last Tuesday. The book has a martial arts theme to it; all be it, one featuring forest animals.
This idea for a book came about many years ago. Inspired by my sensei at the time. Training with this master martial artist was what I imagined training with a bear might be like.
I can’t wait to share some of these stories with everyone. The anticipated release date, September 2023.
All of my books are now available at your favorite bookstores; support local bookstores with your online purchases. Make sure you get out and about but do stay safe. Visit a book store, or the library and pick up some books. If you’re looking for a great early reader chapter book get my book Scratchy the Squirrel: A Time for Friends. Or one of my picture books, Samba in Switzerland, Samba on a Snowy Day or Samba in Brazil.
Stay safe, stay well, stay strong and keep going.
