Hippo Proof Has Been Ordered

I just ordered the physical “proof” for “Clyde and I Help a Hippo to Fly” about 4-6 weeks ahead of schedule. That means the first copy of the book itself is being printed and will be mailed for my last review. If it looks right, I will then begin ordering copies of it for my backers, and it will be available for sale via Amazon.com and elsewhere.

Hopefully my first two titles books will be available within days of each other, versus a month apart as per the original plan.

I also just requested two more illustrations for “Rusty Bear and Thomas, Too”.

With Love,
