It feels a little more real, like they aren't going to mail the contract back with a big Roseanne Roseannadanna "NEVER MIND" written across the first page. Cover art any day...

The Bear in a Muddy Tutu (http://www.colealpaugh.com/indexBEAR.html), by Cole Alpaugh

Lennon Bagg’s daughter has been stolen away by his ex-wife, and he’s just learned the newspaper he reports for is bankrupt. While on his final assignment, Bagg knocks a policeman unconscious to save the life of a runaway circus bear, and suddenly finds himself responsible for a band of stranded roustabouts who’ve pitched their tents on a small island along the New Jersey shore. Eight hundred miles away, a young girl searches for her dead father on the beaches of Bermuda. Dead people, after all, become birds—a theory she derived from her mother’s explanation that when you die, you grow wings and fly away. A hapless cult leader and the sulking newspaper reporter hatch a plan to save the circus, which includes a plane ride into the Bermuda Triangle accompanied by a man who holds the record for being struck by lightning. And it’s starting to cloud up …


In The Bear in a Muddy Tutu, hope is something vigorously avoided because it usually means someone is about to be run over by a speeding car.

Thanks, Lily...you're very sweet.

Sorry, Regan, but I'm goin' with the rocker persona and will only sign boobs and girl butts. No books. Hope you still love me.

And thanks, Regdog!

Thank you...

The cover, was just a mock-up done by my daughter, although the pub is using a stock photo that's along the same lines.
