Meet Frankie

He's almost here. Frankie. The star of my first picture book, Frankie's Perfect Home. Meet Frankie, a young armadillo looking for the perfect home.


The beautiful artwork is by Alexander Morris. Wait till you see inside the book. I've seen the galleys. And they're just perfect. Thanks to Lynda at Guardian Angel Publishing and to Alexander for bringing Frankie to life. Will let you know as soon as the book is available.

Also, a gentle reminder that tomorrow, June 15th, is the last day for Twilight Times' eBook sale. Over 50 books are available for $2.99. I have several to read and hope to go back for more, if I can find a spare minute. Check them out here: http://amzn.to/eYYy6s and Caves direct link is http://amzn.to/jrbVSO

Happy reading and writing.

  14. Thank you, Susanne. Frankie's based on an armadillo that was always digging up our yard. He doesn't know he's a character in a book. :)
