This year we are fostering 2 cats for 2 weeks. Sherlock hasn't been happy about this because they've both hissed at them & he has to share his home. In protest, he won't hold hands with me & he has hidden all of his pompoms. We thought this was a coincidence at first until we put 2 new ones in his playroom (the bathroom). He then followed the cats into the bathroom & continued to watch them & kept eying his hidden cache (under the sink) to make sure they were still there. I will post pictures at a later date of the 2 cats looking for homes.
Well things are slowly starting to move along. Anastasia is back from her honeymoon and sending in book pages which look awesome! We have also had two rescues that will be participating in this book. Meet Jabberwocky & Yolanda. We hope we can help them find wonderful homes! I have been listening to updates on Jabberwocky's status as he went through eye surgery a while back. I was very happy to hear that it was a success! This is a wonderful rescue that goes all out for these animals. Right now all Createspace sales of any book I have written has $1/book going towards this rescue.
I am also currently working on an anti-bullying reading for the schools. This will become available once book 6 is out. I haven't had much chance to get one together and I am now sick but I should have it up and ready for the release date (or very soon after). I would also like to mention that I will visit libraries free in these areas providing they are during after school hours or the weekend and I can set up other locations around you to make it a day trip. If your school is not in the area and funding for a small transportation fee is not possible, please contact me anyways and we will see what we can do.
Lastly, we are looking at doing a story hour with milk and cookies to those that can come and attend. The location would be around where we are situated and reservations would be required as there would be limited spacing. The books are for children kindergarten and up. The story and visit is near an hour, so it may be difficult for some children to sit still in a small room. A parent will be required to be present.
I mentioned around a week ago that we were very pleased to be working with Majestic Waterfowl Sanctuary on finding homes for their animals. Here is a photo of Rilo and Ranger, two ducks who will be featured in Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 5: Freckles and the Cost of Popularity.
Rilo and Ranger are not only going to have their photo in this next Freckles book but will be drawn in as well! Anastasia has already done a wonderful job with their cuteness!
Here are some other places that you can find Rilo and Ranger:
1. On our Freckles the Bunny Series website under Pets and Rescues, then under Rescue Links.
2. Pinterest (Freckles and Sherlock's accounts)
3. In the album entitled, "Rescue Animals in Books" in each of the fan pages.

We hope these two handsome ducks find forever homes together!
A special thanks to Majestic Waterfowl for going over some of our ducky facts and for providing us with some information for Sherlock's next book! Also be sure to check out their website for useful waterfowl information including books!
Lastly, I am going to be slowly cutting out the info I am putting out on both pages. If you aren't a fan of Sherlock's fan page, you will begin to miss out on his updates and vice versa. Each page has it's own fan base, series, website and fan page. Please be sure to check them out as I don't want to bombard everyone with posts by doing both on each site/fan page. Thanks!
