It’s been a LONG time coming, but my second children’s book, Steven the Vegan is being sent to proof this week. This was the first book I used Kickstarter to raise money for, and it was successful.
I’ve already got 2 book signing events planned, and a prospect for another.
I am currently also writing for 3 more projects and working with my illustrator on getting them brought to life.
It’s important to keep writing … always write down your ideas.
I’ve decided to take a different approach to writing. Instead of just working on it in private, I’ve made my progress public.
I created a blog where I will post updates as I write. I know there will be changes, and edits, but at least I get the story out. With a blog format, people can comment and give ideas and feedback.
What do you think?

I have been volunteering my time at a place called Panther Ridge Conservation Center in Wellington, Florida. Not only have I had the pleasure to make friends with cougars, leopards, ocelots, jaguars and a cheetah, but I’ve created an adoption program for them, a donation web site, and I have arranged photographer tours.
I may not be doing the hands on part, but I think this still qualifies as helping to save animals :)
