Next week I have an author appearance to make at a local Library in Yackandandah. Not far from where I live. The topic will be two-fold - my 'a love poetry trilogy' of books (which has never really had an airing in public) and to talk about self-publishing.

It’s my pleasure to invite visitors to my blog to pop over to Robbie cheadle’s place – Robbie’s Inspiration.
Today I’ve chatted with her and her vistors a little about The Bakery Bears, and why they engage me so much that I’ve written two books about them, now, with Waiting For Frank-Bear just about to be released.
Robbie has also posted her review of the new book and it is just lovely to read.
The Bears will be delighted when I mention it to them!
Robbie has also featured another collage of Bakery Bear photographs with the article.

I finally finished what I think I needed to do. Yesterday's post was a bit of a fib, in that I ended up doing another 3 or 4 iterations of the Waiting For Frank-Bear book before I felt I had it as good as it was going to get this time around. I've just sent … Continue reading ARCs away !
Waiting For Frank Bear digital edition cover - 27/11/2021 <phew> I think I've managed to convert Waiting For Frank Bear into a digital edition successfully. It has been a heck of a job because of the way text has been dealt with in the paper editions, but I won't bore you with the details. I … Continue reading Waiting For Frank-Bear – digital edition
Have just finalised the release date for the Bakery Bears book 'Waiting For Frank-Bear'. The two editions (hardback and softcover) will go live on 12th November.
