Gibsons Craft Fair Nov. 20-21

It was fun to be Queen for a Day (actually, it was two days)
at Sunnycrest Mall, Gibsons

Once again, I had a great time signing and selling Six Stinky Feet and a Sasquatch and my other books Nov. 20-21 at Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons, BC. Bought a crocheted crown from Ruby, the vendor beside me, and wore it both days. For people who prefer to buy online, Six Stinky Feet is available at Chapters/Indigo, Amazon.ca, and Peppermint Toast Publishing.

NEWS FLASH (Feb. 13, 2017): A Vancouver publisher wants to publish this book. Hurray! It all depends if their grant comes through in March. Here’s hoping . . .

I`m currently looking for a publisher for my new picture book Dirty, Smelly, Feet. It features the mischievous antics of little Annie and her sasquatch or Bigfoot pal.

Illustrator and animator Lillian Lai has done a great colour rendition of the book`s two main characters. Lillian did an excellent job of illustrating my first picture book, Gracie`s Got a Secret.

Unfortunately, the publisher of that book, MW Book Publishing, has ceased operations.

I don`t want to reveal too much about what makes this book special and different. If you know any publisher who might be interested, please let me know.

Despite the popularity of the Bigfoot on TV and in books for older readers, there are surprisingly few for young readers.
