The campaign of Bob does not run smoothly. No, really. Did you think it would? Well, you are in the wrong place for things to run smoothly. Just saying. What? Did you think you had tuned in to an episode of Little Den on the Prairie or something?
No, this is panda satire! It’s hard! It’s gritty! We are endangered! Excuse me, now it is time for my nap. But first…
You would think that Mama Mei would be happy that Pinky is taking her little brother in paw to teach him a few things. Not to mention being proud that her little girl is so tech savvy!
Meanwhile, in other news, Amazon has opened a store in Seattle, and I am thrilled. I would be more thrilled if they actually put my books in their stores, but that may be too much to hope for. If you live in Seattle, and happen to drop by their store, put in a good word for pandas, okay? We are endangered, you know.
And progress on my coloring book is humming along. I hope to finish compiling it in the next week, so I can get it out in the world (via Amazon!) before the holiday shopping season. I am also working on a major revision of “The Case of the Picturesque Panda” so that it is a middle grade graphic novel. Some major changes are afoot (a paw?) and I can’t resist sharing one of the sample pages here:
I’d love to know what people think about the color, style of the illustrations, whatever you want to tell me. and I…um…promise I’ll read it and won’t ignore any negative things you might have to say. I might whimper a bit, but you don’t mind do you? This is a VERY long term project, so don’t be expecting this one any time soon, but you will be among the first to know when it is finished!
Well, pandas wait for no man!
Be the Bear!
