Good News & Bad News

The good news is that my new book "Parade" is at the printer and getting proofed. It is being printed in Hong Kong and if we are lucky it will be done by mid February. In Hong Kong everything shuts down for 2 weeks for Chinese New Year and hopefully we will just beat it. The book is 64 full color pages filled with comics, paintings and photos. Many classic strips including a section dedicated just to Shaky Bacon. As a bonus I did a series of new mulit panel strips just for the book. It will be a great book to introduce people to Mr Toast and a must have for all long time fans.

The bad news is that the Mr Toast children's picture book I have working on with one of the big publishers has died. That is the way it goes so it is back to the drawing board ....

Sorry about the Mr Toast children's picture book. Perhaps if you went to another publisher?

Could you please sign me up for a first run of your new Parade book. It will be great!

yeah I think I am going to refine my idea and go to some other publishers about it. It will happen when it is supposed to.

The Parade book looks like a lot of fun, so I can't wait!

Those darn publishers! I guess that one just wasn't the right publisher for Mr. Toast. You'll find the right one or they'll find you!!
