Hello everyone! It's been awhile since I've posted. A new Freckles book is still in the works but it is slow coming. This is my fault. A lot of my time is being spend on the new business and getting it going. My efforts haven't been in vain though and I am getting it moving forward. I've also begun taking some classes online so I am spending a lot of time learning. I just wanted to let you all know I haven't forgotten about you.
In fact, Freckles and Sherlock have new merchandise out and online through the business website. I also have the books retiring in the systems so that I can put out new editions with better editing. These are slowly coming. Freckles' sixth book is out and on Amazon. Freckles and Stew are doing well as is Sherlock. We are hoping to begin attending events this Spring and by next year, I hope to contact schools for readings once more. I will try to post more regularly and get to updating the websites soon. Thanks for being such loyal fans!
Oh!! One last note. Freckles' book # 5 & 6 will be online soon as e-books. You can pre-order until then. Keep an eye out for them on Barnes & Noble, Apple, etc. The price is $2.99 USD. You can pre-order now on Smashwords. These are the new and edited versions.

Retiring a book isn't easy and that is what I am going to be doing. I've already begun the process for book # 5 and will soon retire the others as well. I want the books to be the best that they can be. Part of that was finding a new editor. A new editor isn't going to fix everything though. I want my books to be published in Canada, with a Canadian ISBN because I am from Canada. I want my books to feel Canadian and that is why I decided to retire my books.
They will be online once again soon. I already have ISBNs available for them and they will slowly be removed and released. I will keep updating you on which books are going down. I don't think they will take all of the old reviews and place them on the new books so I will be sure to move them to the reviews page.
This is an exciting time as I start a new company. Unfortunately, it also means my books will slow down for awhile. I know what some may be thinking. It took you a year to get this book out so how much slower can they be? I promise they won't take this long again. I needed time to heal and get used to living in this house once more. I am mostly my old self again and I can write so they will be sooner than this next book was. I haven't forgotten about the other books I was writing either. I plan to fit it all in the best that I can.
We have some new book trailers done through 4 Paws Games and Publishing. I hope you like them!
There is a lot to tell. Each series now has gift certificates made for us. They are available for sale on each website as well as 4 Paws Games and Publishing's website.
4 Paws Games and Publishing posted a new video introducing Freckles the Bunny Series. This is the best one yet.
My other works will be going through this company only. I am currently working on a new children's book about how to care for a bunny. This one will be done with real photographs. The company already has much of my other works up for sale from photographs to books. Please take a look and see.
We are pleased to announce that Vickianne and her books are now under a publishing company. The company still leaves full rights and ownership to the authors while publishing them through the company name and website. Nothing much has changed about the books but there will be some new creations added to the books thanks to this company, which Vickianne owns. The company is currently working on a visual novel game app/program for children to learn about animals and the books while playing for free. If things go well with this release, we will be looking at some paid apps in the future. We look forward to working through the company!
Should a different publishing company come along down the road and shows interest in our books, we will happily see what they have to offer. In the meantime, be sure to check out the company's website (click the image) and like their Facebook fan page!
Lastly, please make sure you are not a contest winner. If you are then please contact us about your book/e-book. We usually do not wait over a month for winners to contact us about their books. We still have one e-book and 2 books waiting to be claimed. We have contacted the winners by mentioning them on the site as well as by Facebook (though it may enter the "other" area of your messages). We would like to hold another e-book contest soon so please check and see if you have won. Those e-book winners will now have to receive a new coupon code as the previous one has expired. Simply contact us for a new one. Thank you!
