Big BIG news!

Especially for everyone who has been suggesting that I write a book. I have done it!
I wrote this story almost ten years ago, a little story in verse about the mysterious disappearance of a beloved performer from a circus sideshow.
Then for the next ten years, I worked in my spare time, painting the 30 illustrations that are featured in this book. I hope you will like it. I worked very hard to bring this work to completion. I think if you have liked the dark humor in some of my other works, you will enjoy this book. I am very pleased that the illustrations have come out so well, they are very colorful, very vivid, and faithful to the paintings.

And because as you know, I am but a mild-mannered homemaker with no budget, it is going to be exceedingly difficult to get the word out about my self-published verse. If my blog readers would be so kind, and if you feel that this work is something you could support, please put a word or link in for me. I would be forever in your debt. You might want to hint that this book would make a nice gift!

shhhh! I'm sneaking on at work to say: AWESOME. How much and could I get an autographed copy?

I can't wait to get my book. The pictures were great, especially when clicked and enlarged. The poem is delightful. Can't wait to see how it ends. Like 5thsister said, how can I get an autographed copy? Probably impossible since the company is in San Francisco and you're in PA.
