HAPPY FATHER'S DAY Since I didn't get this Fly Pulse out at the beginning of June with the hustle & bustle of the school year end, I thought it was fitting to send one on Father's Day. This one is special since our third kiddo, Zander, just turned one, and we're reliving the magic of seeing a little one go from crawling to walking in just weeks. To my own dad and fathers in our family, friends, and beyond, we love you for all that you are and all that you do!
NOVEL NEWS Speaking of dads who are characters, I just received the FINAL DRAFT and review copies of Salmon Survivor in the mail this week from my publisher, Relevant Publishing LLC. After two years in planning, it's amazing to see the product that's come to fruition. Thanks to Sharon (Relevant Editor), Linda, and the whole editing team of Relevant. Though it's available for PREORDER on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indie Bookstore, and Bookstop, I'll be having a book launch in August when it will be shipped and available at bookstores and online. Stay tuned as I'll share more details at some of the events I'm hoping to have in August, September, and October to kick off the book and would love for you to be a part. I'm looking for my readers to offer a review to share the book and their thoughts on it with others!
BOOKMARKS I'm also honored to feature Joseph Tomelleri's sockeye artwork on the Salmon Survivor bookmarks. You might recognize him from the Trout calendars we trout-bums purchase each year! Check out his work at www.americanfishes.com. On the front, he allowed me to share the fresh Sockeye (Red), and on the back, the Spawning Sockeye. This has a lot of meaning to the story since salmon go through a journey, change their forms, and weather many obstacles to getting where they need to be by the end. I hope you're as resilient as a salmon in whatever you do!
P.S. - If you already preordered a book, I'll be sure to get you a bookmark when I see you again! I hope it's sooner than later. Happy June!
Our trifecta of A
I love opening a brand new book!
It's funny to see their salmon heads pop out of the book.
