Sheep instead of Bears

I was all set, this morning, to post that the new Bakery Bears book (Waiting for frank-bear) is finished, and to post a couple of happy snaps to mark the occasion. But, no . . .

I decided I needed to tweak the covers a little bit more. Waiting for frank-bear is really very close to complete in it paper book editions – hard and soft covers. I haven’t thought too much about a digital version, yet.

In the meantime, I had a chat to my local bookstore proprietor a few days ago. The local bookshop (Beechworth Books) changed hands a few months ago and I haven’t been out and about much, so I hadn’t caught up until Charles dropped me a DM note and invited me to chat.

They have a cute new logo that an artist friend designed ofr them:

We had a fine natter and I left him copies of my books to have a peek at and see what he might like to stock. I learnt a couple of interesting things during our conversation, one of them was that hard cover copies (of my work at least) are unlikely starters for a bookshop. Soft covers are the preferred format. That was helpful to know.

In any case, I have a hunch that he might be interested in stocking a few copies of Sheep On The Somme, so I thought I should order a box to have on hand. While I wasn’t looking (due to stirring soup for lunch on the stove), they magically turned up on the back verandah.

So. Instead of me sounding off about the new Bakery Bears book, what I can share with you is that I still find Sheep On The Somme a little bit amazing. Here are today’s pics.

Sheep On The Somme is available worldwide through vistually any of the online booksellers, and I notice that the Amazon Australia Bookstore listing – Amazingly – seems to have a hugely discounted price on the hardback edition. Very cheap indeed! If you ever wanted to get a copy, today would be a good day to do that, I think.

Unfortunately I don’t seem able to post a link to the Amazon store today, but this universal link should lead you to it if you’re interested.

Happy shopping!

  1. It is amazing what you find while stirring the soup, or even just the pot. Thanks for sharing the info for any would-be writers, Im am looking forward to meeting the Frank bear character.

    • The 2nd Bears book is nearly done, Robbie. I keep tinkering with the layout, but really need to stop now. I think the latest e-proof shoudl be done today and I expect to ok it and get another physical proof.

      I’ll ponder what to do about a digital edition now, as well. The Kindle Kids Book creator is easy enough to do, but I’d prefer to create a proper epub edition. I really need all the images to be in portrait orientation to do that well.

      I’ll see.

      Hope you enjoy Sheep On The Somme. I get a touch of the awestruck each time I look at those images.
