Today is THE day! The BIRTH of Ready, Set, GOrilla! written by Melissa Stoller, illustrated by (ME!) Sandy Steen Bartholomew, and published by Spork/Clear Fork Publishing.
I am SO excited, but I don't know what to do with my energy - just wandering around the Studio thinking how hungry I am and I need a Book Party and cake... maybe some balloons?
Melissa and I celebrated with Callie, our publisher, on Facebook Live - watch our video!
And we have already started to come up with more ideas for the characters and we need STUFFIES! Which characters would you want as stuffed animals?
Don't forget that you can get tattoos of them at www. Bumblebat.com
Yes - I'm all over the place. Sorry.
SO - a PARTY...
We'll be having a little Book Party celebration on December 1st, from 11am-Noon, at the Velvet Moose in Warner, NH. Kids are welcome - there will be coloring pages, tattoos, snacks. But I'd also LOVE to see you big people too. This is my way of celebrating a success (Hey! I have a new published book!) so please come and celebrate with me.
If you can't make it to the party, the books will also be available at the Pop-Up Holiday Shop on December 8th at the Simonds Elementary School (also in Warner, NH).
And you can order the book on Amazon and from other booksellers.
