Hi everyone! I haven't been able to get a lot of book work done until now. I finally managed to get Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 5: Freckles and the Cost of Popularity online. The book is now visible and for sale on Amazon.com This will be the book's second edition. I still have to update some links and hope to soon. In the meantime, the link above will take you to the the purchase link.
Just a friendly reminder that I will be retiring book # 5 at the end of the month to make way for the second edition which will be published through 4 Paws Games and Publishing.
Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 5: Freckles and the Cost of Popularity
The book is finally out online! Amazon.com will be between 3 - 5 days on their system, possibly sooner.
The books are purchasable through Createspace which is an Amazon.com company. Below is the direct link to the books and below that, you will find a direct link to all of our books with their Createspace listings.
Rescue Donating Changes
We began helping rescue animals at first by donating $1/book to the Humboldt & Disctrict SPCA. We've donated books and packages as well as started placing the animals into books. Sherlock's write list all of the great reasons to adopt but this just doesn't seem like enough when trying to help animals. We are now also going to be posting events for these groups that we will be working with, whether they are in every book or just one.
Also, as all of the books mention, please read the Createspace page to find out who we are donating to. For some time we've donated sales through those links to the Humboldt & District SPCA and while it hasn't been much (most people don't use those links), it was some. Now we are beginning new things with the books. Kimberly from Majestic Waterfowl Sanctuary had planned to tell everyone about Rilo and Ranger being part of this book. Help with sales is always appreciated big or small but we feel that it wouldn't be fair to her or the ducks if we didn't donate $1/book to her group for awhile.
We would very much like to give everyone a chance so if any Humboldt & District supporters do wish to have their' $1/book donated, they just need to email me and let me know on either the Facebook page or from the website. Decisions like this are never easy but they have to be made.
$1/Book sold through Createspace will be donated to Majestic Waterfowl Sanctuary as of immediately. *Book pertaining to any Freckles the Bunny Series or Sherlock the Remarkable Cat Series book sold through Createspace links.

Majestic Waterfowl Sanctuary
As you know, we have been trying to help rescues like Majestic Waterfowl Sanctuary, in hopes of helping them find loving homes for the animals they care for. One of the new things we will now be doing is to help share some of their events. Below is their post:
"Duck-Duck-Goose" Blue Ribbon Photo Contest!
Our 6th annual Blue Ribbon Photo Fundraiser Contest is currently underway!
Enter a photo of your duck or goose today for a chance to win one of our GIANT & GORGEOUS prize ribbons!
Sorry! this was supposed to be out last month!
We've completed another rescue animal in the book. Pickles is from Running Rabbit Farm Rabbit Rescue and is looking for a home. You can find all of his photos on the Rescue Links page.
We're also sad to announce that Willy's Happy Endings will not be in this book as they have been quite busy and unable to send in the form. We do however hope that they will be in one of the upcoming books!
Meet Rilo and Ranger, two Pekin ducks from Majestic Waterfowl Sanctuary. Expect to see these two cuties in book 5 as well!
Stew's Anti-bullying Poster
Here is a sneak peak at book # 6's anti-bullying poster. For those of you unaware, Pawfect Place School has an anti-bullying contest going on. Freckles becomes very jealous of Stew when Stew's poster wins the contest. Here is the picture. The anti-bullying poster will be at the back of the book for you to cut out as well as online in the Downloads area for you to print.
This book will take you where the previous books haven't taken you before and you will see a side of Freckles and Stew that you never imagined possible!
Just a note: This was drawn special by my 10 year old daughter who also does the drawings at the back of the Freckles book. You know her from the pickle in book 2, carrot from book 1, etc.
Just a reminder that you can pre-order both books now! I am expecting to possibly sell all of my first order of book 6 when it comes out. These books will also be available online via Createspace ($1/book to the Humboldt & District SPCA) and Amazon.com once they are out.
