Book News, Everybody's Favorite Book

And The Winner Is…

At long last, it’s time to find out who will win the bestest holiday and/or non-holiday gift ever.

It’s the amazing picture book that has it all—and more.

It’s the ideal story for the reader who has everything, the non-reader who has nothing, and the sometimes-reader who has some things.

You guessed it, we’re talkin’ about…

Everybody’s Favorite Book!

So! Let’s get started!

The ballots have been made.

They have been dumped in the Santa Hat of Gift Giverishness.

We’ll pick those ballots off the floor…

And Our Loyal Judge (a judge I probably should’ve fired by now) will select the winner.

(And since Christmas is a bit too close for comfort, Our Loyal Judge has been firmly instructed to stop wasting everyone’s time by endlessly mixing the ballots—which he is wont to do. In the spirit of the holiday, he agreed.)

And heeeere we go!

And the winner is…

How did that get in there?

Select again! And the winner is…

What did you do, Judge? Come on, let’s go!

And the winner is…

I will kill you.

STOP WASTING EVERYONE’S TIME!

PICK A BALLOT!

And the winner is…

Patricia Tilton!

 

Congratulations Patricia! To claim your prize, all you have to do is head over to the “Hire Me!” menu item and send me an email!

And to all you fine folks who didn’t win, fear not! There’s still time to buy a copy of Everybody’s Favorite Book for yourself, your child, a random child, your significant other, your insignificant other, your friend, frenemy, colleague, mailman, plumber, and/or the nice fellow who picks up your recycling.

It really is the perfect gift for everyone. Order it HERE, or buy it wherever fine and/or subpar books are sold.

Happy Holidays, Everybody!

Everybody's Favorite Book

Pie! Oh, My!

Cath Carroll, the charming  proprietor at Celebrate Picture Books, reminded me that today is National Pie Day.

In honor of this occasion, I give you a character from my new picture book, Everybody’s Favorite Book:  Behold Everybody’s Favorite Villain, Corky!


Corky, in case you don’t know, is part robot, part dragon, and part pirate, making him a Robo-Dragon Pie.

Corky is holiday-adjacent.

Heck, Corky should be the holiday’s mascot.

So be sure to cut yourself an extra wide slice of the sweet stuff today.  Let’s make Corky  proud.

Everybody’s Favorite Book is here!

It’s October 30! That means BIG NEWS!

Very big. Mastodon-sized guinea pig big!

Everybody’s Favorite Book goes on sale today!

Get your copy here!

A few people have asked me what I plan to do to celebrate this occasion. My answer, I’m afraid, is: Cut My Weed-Choked Lawn. There is nothing quite like a weed-choked lawn to keep a person humble.

That said, if you’re in New Jersey this weekend, come visit me (and get a signed book)! I’m appearing at The Bookworm in Bernardsville on Saturday, November 3, at 11 am, and Little City Books in Hoboken on Sunday, November 4, at 11 am.

Hope to see you there!
