Happy weekend, everyone. I decided to take the day off and do some fishing with the kids. They had fun. We caught nothing.

Just before we made it to the lake I got a message from my illustrator. She had a rough sketch ready for my book for my son.

Good Knight Ricky and his dragon Colborn

He is almost 6, and a typical boy. He wanted me to write a book about him being a knight. I have had the idea for several months, but disappointing sales of Morgan Goes Fishing put it on the back burner as I tried to promote it some more.

I have sold 3 copies in the last 2 months. Createspace will be shutting down, so I will be looking for better options for printing.

The Lizzie Andrews Series series needs some serious help. If you are at all interested in genealogy, history, classic women, war, any of it. Stop by our kickstarter page. If it doesn’t get funding it doesn’t happen.

My partner is doing next to nothing to promote it, so I get to push for my own good. We will be offering a one hour genealogy help prize to any donors. This way we help them, for helping us.

Now, for my son’s book. It is called Good Knight Ricky and the Bad Joke Dragon. He is a 6 year old boy with his pet dragon set out to save the kingdom. It’s for 5 to 8 year olds, probably 4,000 words.

I will share little details over the next couple of months. It’ll be a slow process. I will have to get money up for the illustrations and go over all that. I am considering a kickstarter for that as well, but I am not likely to use it. It may be a good way to get a boost to Lizzie as they see both projects from me. So I don’t know.

These are all things I will have to get worked out. If I do it it will be a straight across the board cost for a copy reward. Basically treat it as a preorder setup.

Anyway, let me know what you think. I appreciate the support I get here. You all have a great weekend.

In the meantime, if you want to grab a copy of Morgan Goes Fishing, you can buy it here, in my book nook. They are for sale at $6.99, and I will send a coloring bookmark with all purchases when the shipment comes in.
