"The Sick Bug" has hit the web


To say that I am excited about the launch of one of my new children's books upcoming is to put it lightly. I am actually ecstatic and can't wait for its release in the beginning of Sept. The book titled "The Sick Bug" was a great collaboration with author Susie Bazil and has continued to keep the excitement growing. With this, Susie sent a link over this week of the official "The Sick Bug" website. How cool is this. I have had pages on websites talk about a new book, but never an entire website dedicated to one book. And on top of that, there are free coloring pages for the kiddies to download and try their own hand at coloring in the book.

Please if you have a moment and are curious about the new book, check out "The Sick Bug" website and drop a line of what you think. I will be sure to fill you guys in as we get closer to launching the book and if there are any bookstores near you that you would like to see the book in or even have Susie and I come out for a booksigning, by all means pass the info on and let us know of the stores name! Hope all of you have a great start to your weekend and will be back with some new and fun news soon.

Congrats on being published again, Shawn! The book looks great, and the website is freaking awesome! I'm very excited for you.

You two should come out to the Valley Bookseller in Stillwater sometime. And check out the Red Balloon in St. Paul, they always have a ton of events.

Thanks Janet. I am hoping to put coloring pages from a number of my books in my free section of my website. It is about time I add something there too. Thanks for checking out the book website!
