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.
Some are probably wondering why this latest book is being released so late. Many know we had a fire last year and have moved back into the house. We lost some rabbits as well and settling back in hasn't been easy. I haven't been able to write for some time due to this. We are slowly working to get book 6 done and continue on with the series'. I appreciate your patience and continued support!
"Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 7: Freckles and the Big Book of Manners" is on hold for a short spell. The book is a bit time consuming and with temporary writing issues, this isn't the best book to be working on at this time. So that I am not taking 6 months to write (I've been on this one for at least 6 now), I've decided to do a short story book in between. I'd wanted to do separate books on some of the other characters before. This gives me the perfect chance to write on just her friends and their issues.
The upcoming book is called, "Freckles' Short Stories, Volume 1." The first story in the book is about Boots' family. Many fans know that Boots' dad has been dating Purrsia. You also know that Purrsia has an adopted daughter named Potato, who is a hamster. The first story is about Purrsia and Mr. Cat's wedding. It goes through the experience and feelings of Boots and Potato who do not want them to get married. The first story is called, "A Cat Family Wedding" and is 14 pages long. This is just the first story in the book. I expect there to be at least 1 more.
I haven't had much time to work on his books. They take a great deal of time, work and research to do. I do plan on getting his second book out this year. Hopefully this spring! In the meantime, I will share some photos of Sherlock and his new buddy Salem tonight. Salem will probably be written in to the Cat family at a later date or perhaps as a new friend. Be sure to check out the photo albums to view the photos. I've added 5 photos in the Real Sherlock album and 1 in his friends album for you. This is on Sherlock's website.
Personal Sherlock update. Our Christmas tree spent a lot of it's time lop-sided and rolling along the wall because of all the wrestling the two kept doing. There are plenty of Sherlock stories to share with you so I will try doing that until the next Sherlock book is out.
For big fans, be sure to check out Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 4: The True Meaning of Christmas and the upcoming book to see more of Sherlock and his family!
Well we have been really busy here this summer. We had to quickly move our stuff out so the house could get cleaned (which is why books & writing haven't gotten very far), re-cleaned some stuff ourselves & now our stuff. We have had people concerned, asking how it is going, how bad it was, so here is a bit to share.
Everything is taking quite a lot of work, time and energy to do. I haven't had much time or energy to write like I would like to. Hope you enjoyed the little look into our world and I hope it answers some of the questions some of you have had!
We had a fire in our home July, 20th. It was small but with plenty of smoke damage. We are still recuperating, not from the loss of our stuff which is trivial, but from the loss of some rabbits I was unable to save. We are currently staying with family and unsure as to when we will be back in our home.
Freckles stuff is a bit slowed down at the moment but we are working to catch up as we deal with things here. The reviews have been on hold as we try to mend our hearts. These pets were not just pets, item, but family. I know not everyone understands that concept and I've been judged because of that by some. We need time right now to understand and accept their loss as we try to prepare for what is to come as well. Thank you for your understanding.
In my grief, I've written a poem for their loss. I've shared it on this website and the videos that were once listed on the site are still there, just under the photos listing. Thank you to those that are understanding and patient! We hope to get back to things as soon as we can.
Reviews are on hold for the time being. I'm sorry about this but we are dealing with both taking care of the house and the loss of our "family" members.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
