A special thank you to the Reid-Thompson Public Library in Humboldt, Saskatchewan. We all had a lovely time reading to the children and look forward to doing it again. Last but not least, a thank you to the Humboldt and District Kinettes for sponsoring me for the TD Canada Trust Summer Reading Program.
School & Library Readings
These are the areas we will be visiting. Please note a few more locations have been added. These visits are free as are our Skype visits. If however you are outside of these locations, a small fee to cover expenses can be arranged to visit your location.
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.
It's that time of year again. School is starting and so much more! Sorry I haven't blogged updates here in a bit but we've been rushing to get back into our house. Some things have been moving far faster then we planned. We are hoping for everything to slow down after next month and for us all to be settled in. In the meantime, here are some updates now & some to expect over the next month or so for all 3 websites: Now:
I have finally managed to fix those pictures on Freckles' website.
2. School Visits in Your Area
I've already posted which areas we will be looking at visiting. The school proposals will explain more but it is free even if we have visited your school before. Feel free to contact us for more information. The areas include:
3. Erika-Elizabeth's Blog
As many know, Erika-Elizabeth is my daughter. She does the crafts for the books & video records them for children to do with her. She also does book reviews for me in her spare time (book reviews are on hold until we can get her computer down here). She has finally posted a second post and will continue to do so as the week progresses. Erika-Elizabeth has also co-authored Freckles' book # 6. Find her blog on Freckles' website & her review's on mine.
4. E-Book Sales
We currently have most books down for sale at $2.99 USD. Check them out on Barnes & Noble or Apple/Itunes.
5. Book Reviews
We have some new book reviews up for each series. Be sure to check out Sherlock's 1st book's review as well as Freckles' 4th & 5th books. You can find the reviews from here:
Expect new photos to be up & posted over the next while on the websites.
2. School Proposals
I still need to update proposals for both series' for the schools before I contact them again this year. You will be able to find them on both websites soon.
3. Freckles Book # 6 Pre-Order Special
A pre-order special for Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 6: The Freckle Monster, is being put together as we speak. This is the bullying book I have been talking about. The release date has yet to be decided but it will be out before Christmas.
4. Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 6: The Freckle Monster Preview & Trailer
We will be working on the trailer and preview for the upcoming book very soon so keep an eye out on the website & Youtube channel.
5. Freckles Bundle Deal
A special bundle deal where you can buy a few books at a special price will be coming soon!
This is just some of what is to come!
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!
