We would like to welcome our new illustrator Athena Whitbread. She will begin drawing Freckles the Bunny Series: Freckles' Short Stories, Volume 1 in January. Athena was asked to draw a bunny using Freckles' picture and this was what she sent in. We look forward to seeing the rest of her work!

Hi! I know I was supposed to post pictures of the two foster cats that we took in for the holiday. Between last minute Christmas shopping and a death in the family, I just never got around to it. Here are the pictures of the two cuties available for adoption at the Humboldt & District SPCA.
One Freckles website update:
We have also removed Erika-Elizabeth's Blog page. She is getting older and would prefer to not have it on any longer to keep some of her privacy. You can still follow "Craft Time with Erika-Elizabeth."
I am in the works of writing a new children's book entitled, "Through the Eyes of a Bunny." It will be less cartoon like then the other stories as it is meant to be seen with understanding and reality. The book will follow a rabbit's life through being bought at a pet shop to ending up in a shelter, to it's final home. I am hoping to not only teach children and parents about rabbits so that they think before buying but also teach them about the right way to care for them. Sadly, rabbits are often a discarded pet. I hope the book will be out for the New Year however I will be working out some of the details once the book is complete. I hope to have some news to share with you before the year is out.
Freckles' book should be coming out within a month or two. We've had to span them out due to Anastasia's schedule and my family moving back into our home. We plan to try and keep the books roughly 4 months apart as before. It will all depend on how long some of these are.
I am still planning on having a second book out early this year (at least I plan to try). It will definitely be out before the end of this year. Please keep checking his blog or Facebook page for updates.
A late Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all those who celebrate!
School & Library Readings
There is a new page on the website, "Story Reading and Fundraising." These files, locations and more can be found on that page. I am still working on the fundraising and other stuff but it will be available there as well. Event Readings has partially been added as well.
I am very pleased to be able to say this. As of today, I am officially a Saskatchewan Writers' Guild member. I am listed on their website so be sure to check it out! Just one of the exciting bits of news I had promised.
We are still taking in suggestions for the manners book as well! I am slowly writing this and Sherlock's book.
Website changes - The "About Us" area for Vickianne has been switched as well to match that of the Writers' Guild's website.
This will probably be the last posting for the weekend! If you are in Regina, Saskatchewan this weekend then be sure to stop by the Saskatchewan Writers Guild's table. I will be there on Sunday from 1 - 4PM. The animals will not be present but I will have their books. I will also be taking orders. Hope to see you there!
Lastly, just an update on the e-books. I am still working on formatting the other books so that they are available as well. In the meantime, book # 1 of Sherlock and Freckles is available and listed at the following places:
1. Barnes and Noble
3. Apple (Buy through Itunes)
5. Versent Books
6. Flipkart (so far only one is listed)
Other locations are still coming! A new page has been added and I have been updating them daily as I find my books in their search engines. There are a few that don't share their book listings, in which case I have listed them. If you see these and are a member but the books are not there, be patient as they are on their way.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Very excited to announce that I will be at Regina Fan Expo on Sunday, May 4th, 2014 from 1 - 4PM. You can find me at the Saskatchewan Writers Guild's booth! Follow the link below for details on the main event, location, cost and hours.
I was not expecting to attend and have been spending much needed time on catching up on work so I have limited books. I will be taking pre-orders though and selling what I do have. Come early!
Unfortunately, neither Freckles nor Sherlock will be able to attend. I hope to see you there and a very big thank you to the Saskatchewan Writers Guild for having us!
