Book Tour…okay not really

Emilita is kicking me out of the house, so I’ll be hitting the road to give her time to relax. Let’s hope she lets me come home!

The good news is, I plan on checking out some independent bookstores in my travels and would love to sign copies of my books for folks who live nowhere near New England. This is a completely unofficial book tour and there will be no events planned at any location, but if you pre-order any of my books from the following stores, I would be more than happy to stop and sign them when I get to the area. I’ve estimated when I will be at each location, so if you would like to support some great independent bookstores, get your orders in now!

Prairie Fox Books Ottawa, IL (March 1)

Prairie Lights Iowa City, IA (March 1)

Canvasback Books Klamath Falls, OR (March 4)

Northtown Books Arcata, CA (March 5-8)

The Bookworm Omaha, NE (March 11)

The Next Chapter Books and Gifts Omaha, NE (March 11)

These are just a few great stores that I found in my research that will be easy for me to get to on my route, but I hope to travel to many more on other trips. SHOP SMALL!

A Successful Launch

Thank you so much for all the support at the E.M. Sanchez book launch! For those who could not attend, signed copies are available at The Country Bookseller! Also, just a reminder that E.M. Sanchez and the Broken Bird Feeder hits independent shelves everywhere THIS TUESDAY (11/23/21)! If you don’t have a copy yet, Emilita strongly demands that you get one soon. Find your local bookstore through Indiebound or order a copy at bookshop.org.

E.M. Sanchez and the Broken Bird Feeder

Mysteries and tuna are two of P.I. Sanchez’s favorite things, but not necessarily in that order. Teamed up with her partner Web, the famous yellow bird, there isn’t a case in nature these two can’t solve. In the first of this new children’s series, the duo take on a case of a broken bird feeder in the community. Can they solve the mystery and still find enough time for E.M. Sanchez to nap? Find out November 23, 2021! Pre-order at your local bookstore today!

Coming Soon!

Shake up Shakespeare with this humorous tale of the human reproductive system. You may know the story of “two star-crossed lovers,” but you haven’t heard a “tale of more woe, than this of Juliegg and her Spermeo.” Characters from several different works by the Bard come together in this play that is not only witty, but educational. If you have ever wanted to know more about how babies are made (or not made), there is no better way to learn than through tragic characters and iambic pentameter. This is a tale, truly older than time! *Bonus material from Emilita!*

Napping Alone

The sun seeps through
and reaches my throne
so I stretch a little farther,
excited to be alone.
A let out a yawn
and crack my eyes
and twitch my whiskers
and continue with sighs.
A nap is always best
with lots of warmth and sun
and is even better
when I’m the only one.

Just When

Just when I figure it all out,
you go and change it once more;
don’t you know I’m a cat
and change is something
we deplore?

Just when I’ve settled
and got ready for a nap,
you tear apart my world
leaving chaos & destruction
leaking from the tap.

Just when I don’t think I could
hate you any more,
you prove that hatred
is quite lenient compared
to what I have in store.
