I'm sorry I haven't had as much time to update on here. I've finally got a little free time (business has been keeping me busy) so I have been getting Freckles' books re-edited and placed through 4 Paws Games and Publishing.
Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 6: The Freckle Monster is now available on e-book in many locations. It is also available as Paperback on Amazon, Chapters/Indigo and McNally Robinson. You can order in the book at the last two as they have it listed online, but it is not stocked in the stores.
If you haven't heard, we will be doing a story reading (Freckles will be there) on Wednesday, August 10, 2016 and the library in Humboldt. I will be sure to add this to the events page here soon!
Lastly, I've removed the sales page. To make it easier for taxes, all books and products will be purchased through 4 Paws Games and Publishing's store only. This is the same for Sherlock's website. You can find some great items like calendars, posters and so much more! We are re-ordering his books too.
One last note. Once I get these re-edited and have a little free time, you can expect Sherlock's next book to be in the works. Yes, finally!
Have a great day everyone!
You can now order some of Freckles the Bunny Series & Sherlock's paperbacks on McNally Robinson's website!
Hello everyone! It's been awhile since I've posted. A new Freckles book is still in the works but it is slow coming. This is my fault. A lot of my time is being spend on the new business and getting it going. My efforts haven't been in vain though and I am getting it moving forward. I've also begun taking some classes online so I am spending a lot of time learning. I just wanted to let you all know I haven't forgotten about you.
In fact, Freckles and Sherlock have new merchandise out and online through the business website. I also have the books retiring in the systems so that I can put out new editions with better editing. These are slowly coming. Freckles' sixth book is out and on Amazon. Freckles and Stew are doing well as is Sherlock. We are hoping to begin attending events this Spring and by next year, I hope to contact schools for readings once more. I will try to post more regularly and get to updating the websites soon. Thanks for being such loyal fans!
Oh!! One last note. Freckles' book # 5 & 6 will be online soon as e-books. You can pre-order until then. Keep an eye out for them on Barnes & Noble, Apple, etc. The price is $2.99 USD. You can pre-order now on Smashwords. These are the new and edited versions.

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!
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!
I've added a new photo set to the website. It is called, "Make Believe Recurring Characters." Take a look & meet the mean weasels. You will find them in books 5 & 6. Find them on the "Photos, Videos and More" page.
The school proposal is online. If you didn't see it in the last blog post, view or download it on the "Story Readings & Fundraising" page.
