Nice Folks in Portland

Hey Jammy Adventurists, the Portland Saturday Market is the thing to see. We met and talked with lots of unique individuals as we strolled along there yesterday. We also met the purveyors of Bella Mi Soap; the most amazing fragrances and product presentation I have personally ever experienced. You've got to check out their Facebook page and see what they've got on offer.

We had a great conversation about entrepreneurism, and they were kind enough to take one of my cards. It's funny; everyone I talk to about this book gets instantly giddy about it--probably because I'm permanently giddy about it--but they seemed to be interested in starting a Jammy Adventure of their own. I'd say go for it. One is never too old to have a little fun.

Blogtalk Radio Appearance, Take 2

Giovanni had to adjust our scheduled time slot, so listen up! [why am I suddenly flashing back to USMC boot camp? weird...] My interview is now scheduled for 11:30 AM eastern time. For those of you in Rio Linda, that means 9:30 local. The cool part is that since it's on the Web, you can cruise on over to the link and listen even if you miss the live show. Don't miss it.

Blogtalk Radio Appearance

This Thursday at 8AM local (10 eastern), I'll be a guest of Giovanni Gelati for an hourlong interview about my book, how we did it, and some of my opinions on all kinds of inane babble. You should check it out, if for nothing else than the entertainment value of a writer trying to speak in coherent sentences. If you want a writer to feel utterly exposed, just take away his ability to backspace and/or delete. I suppose this makes me some kind of jet-setter now.

Thank you!

Jammy Adventurists, thank you so very much for coming out to show your support for our first book signing. Joey Zavaleta, the illustrator, was there signing books with me, which was a total blast. We connected with lots of kids and parents, gave out some crayons, and sold about 30 books. All in all, a respectable turnout. This is something that I believe will grow larger and more special over time, as so many parents and kids who have never met me or Joey before expressed their excitement and delight at our unique concept: the OK-to-color-in picture book.

I talked with Joey in between signings and sales about starting work on the next book in the series: The Great Jammy Adventure of Ninja Agent. We'll be introducing some new characters, a new hero, and some new villains (who will never win). Joey is very excited about getting going on this in the months to come, and so am I. The Great Jammy Adventures may soon be often imitated, but never duplicated! This is a great concept, and I'm convinced it's here to stay.

Again, thanks for all the love at the first signing, and stay tuned to this space for more events...coming soon.

We're scheduled for the first Jammy book signing! Mark your calendars for March 19th (next Saturday). From 10 AM to 2 PM, I'll be signing and selling personalized copies of the Great Jammy Adventure of the Flying Cowboy. Just Kid'n Around in Meridian has been kind enough to allow us to set up in the cafe area for this very special event. Come on out and buy a book or two, and bring the kiddos too, because Just Kid'n Around is a great place to play for kids of all ages. Here's the address:

2374 E. Cinema Dr.
Meridian, ID 83642

Just copy and paste it into Google Maps if you're not sure where we're gonna be. The closest landmark is the new Harley-Davidson store, right off I-84.

Our Jammy Menu is as following:

1 book for $15
2 books for $25
3 or more books for $30

We're able to accept cash and all major credit cards.

This project has been two years in the making, and we're really proud of our work and want more than anything to share it with all of you. Come on out and meet Chris the author, Joey the illustrator, and maybe even Noah and Jaden, the inspiration. We're excited!

Check us out on Facebook, check the Just Kid'n Around Web site for more info, and follow our blog!

Oh and one more thing: bring a box of crayons, because your kids are going to want to get started on this OK-to-color-in picture book right away.
