1469 Days Later….

YES! It is one thousand four hundred and sixty-nine days since I got the idea for my novel! Here I am – driving to meet our printer with the first shipment of the books!We met in an undisclosed parking lot. I pulled up next to him, looked both ways, and whispered, “You got the stuff?” He said, “It’s all in my truck.” He assured me it was good stuff. After examining a sample, I agreed. After one more glance around, we began the transfer. No one seemed to notice even though we were on a busy street. How to fit them all in a PK Cruiser? Hmmmm… The rest had to go in the building. But now I can have a mobile bookstore and can open shop in parking lots everywhere! Here is the happy author excited to hold the FIRST OFFICIAL COPY in his hands! WARNING: Shameless Promotion Ahead! The PRE-ORDER SALE ends midnight Friday, so this will be your last chance to get 11 copies for only $9 each, plus a signed copy. AND FREE SHIPING! There will never be a sale like this, this is to help with the initial printing cost. (every order is greatly appreciated …

A Mad Scientist Party! (it runs in the family….)s

No, not being mad, but being creative. My neice, Tricia, just turned 8 and her birthday party (as usual) was one of the most creative I’ve been to. (see last year’s Western theme pics) My sister, Melissa (above), goes ‘all out’ and creates the most fun birthday parties for her kids. This year was no exception as Tricia chose a Mad Scientist theme. The best compliment I heard was when one dad at the event said, “This party is like the ones you see in movies and you think, ‘no one has parties like that’, but I’m at one!” Of course, I came and got into the spirit of things as the Wacky Professor Wipplestowski. I was in charge of the Sandy Candy lab. I actually didn’t get to see everything due to workin’ my lab, but the kids rotated through several labs doing really cool and fun experiments. Wonder what these kids are cookin’ up? Looks kinda GOOOEY to me! You gonna actually EAT that!?!?!?! Future food scientist in the making. (that’s what his dad does for a living!) (The Birthday Girl) I wouldn’t drink that if I was you! CAREFUL THERE BOY! You might blow up the house! …

A "Remnant Club" Down Under??

I just have to share a really really COOL e-mail from a ten year boy ‘down under’ who wrote to me this week about my novel, the Order of the Ancient. He was given the PDF version from Kidology.org (PDF version no longer available) by his children’s pastor and read it. He writes: Subject: Hi Man! Your Book Rocks! Hi! My Pastor Printed Me A Copy Of ”Order of the Ancient”, And I Am STILL Reading It! It Is By Far On My Top 10 List Of Books.(Published Or Not!) Hey! I Was Thinking, My Name Is Jordan, Yes I Am A Christian, And I Am 10 Yrs Old, And Thought, Maybe We Could Start ”Remnant.org”, And To Sign Up They Need To Tell Us The Very Important Parts Of Their Lives, So We Can Tell Them Their Name E.g. Josiah, Jeremiah, Shaphan , Rahab etc. It Would Be Real Nice To Know You, Your Obviously A Very Strong Christian,….(info on how to chat online and his MSN name)…. You Probably Don’t Have Time Now For Someone You Don’t Know, But It Would Be Great To Get To Know You. Jordan Here is the Icthus he sent me to complete: …

I Kid U Not, we had a GREAT TIME!

Last weekend was the Kidology University in Appleton, Wisconsin, and it was a HUGE success! Here are just some highlight pictures…. it is in no way complete, and please no one get your feelings hurt if there is no picture of you. :) I just want to get some up due to the flood of emails pouring in demanding pictures!! This should satisfy both of the them. This was our second year doing Kid U Wisconsin. The staff at the Appleton Alliance Church are amazing and were the secret to our success! (along with the beautiful and sweet Kid U Conference Coordinator, Sara!) The secret to staying awake and alert after three hour drive, late night pizza party (the pizza guy got in a car accident and kept us up for an hour and a half waiting, and arrived just as we were about to finally cancel the order… at least it was free!), Creativity Blitz on Friday Night, and alllllll day Saturday, then looooooong drive home and gettin’ ready for church on Sunday morning! Whew! What a weekend! (but I’d do it all over again!) Friday evening Preconference Creativity Blitz was a ROCKIN’ GOOD TIME! The Appleton J.A.M. team …
