(I apologize if you’ve seen this at “A Grateful Man” but I’m excited and wanted to share the news!)

I just got a great surprise birthday gift: My first two children’s books, “Clyde and I” and “Clyde and I Help a Hippo to Fly” have already been listed for sale on, a week ahead of schedule.

My third children’s book, “Rusty Bear and Thomas, Too” is scheduled for release by September 30, and my fourth, “Grumbly Grumpadinkle”, before the end of the year.

I’m still having fun and learning a lot, so regardless of what happens to them commercially, I’ve already won.

With Love, Russ
