It's been a couple weeks ago now, but the Savannah Children's Book Festival was an incredible event! Here are some photos and videos from the event that might not be out there yet. A lot of the photos are from school visits leading up to the event.

Hey hey y'all, just dropping a line to let you know about some great upcoming events. I'll be at the GA Literary Festival in Augusta on Nov. 7th, and then I'll be right here in Savannah on Nov. 14th for the Children's Book Festival- which just happens to mark the year anniversary of Heave Ho!!!!!! It's been a great first year as a DIY publisher, and the Heave Ho! crew and I are so incredibly grateful for all of the support, encouragement, and all around good vibes that everyone has been providing. We've moved a whole lot of books, traveled all over the eastern U.S., and shouted "Heave Ho!" with many a group of youngsters. Now as we approach a year in action, we've just signed with Small Press United (a subsidiary of Independent Publishers Group) for distribution- which will greatly broaden our reach and accessibility, and I'm already digging into the next book- so be on the lookout for some teaser posts in the coming months.

...and here are a few shots from the Early Learning Conference in Spring Hill, FL a couple weeks ago.
Wowzers, what an incredible honor to have Heave Ho! voted "Best New Local Book" by the readers of the Connect! The fine folks over at the Connect threw a big party for all the BOS winners at the Charles Morris Center, and it was a blast. So glad to have been a part of it, and yes, that's "yours truly" on the cover seated with my lady, Maggie, who got "Best Actress" again!

We'll be on tour from April 7th to April 26th, spreading the good word or Heave Ho! Come out tomorrow, wish us luck, and pick yourself up a worm sticker and one of the new Spaceboy postcards.
There's a great blog here in town called SouthernMamas that is all the rage for mamas. I found out about it through Scribble Art Studio, since they post events and promotions on the blog quite regularly. Since it's such a great resource, I asked about getting Heave Ho! featured on the blog, and Anne Hart got back to me and said we could indeed get the book on there, but we should first feature it in her Hart To Heart column in the Savannah Morning News. This was, of course, an incredible added bonus!

Heave Ho! is officially out and in the world! The 2014 Savannah Children's Book Festival on November 15th was its debut, and quite a successful debut I must say. We sold a lot of books and gave away a ton of Worm stickers. Now it's time to plug away online and try to spread Heave Ho! all across the interwebs.
