As many of you already know, my children’s book Panda the Very Bad Cat is coming soon with the start of my Chapters/Indigo tour across Ontario, Canada that begins on October 1st. A portion of the proceeds from every book sold will go to various animal shelters across the country. A big thank you to everyone who cares for the well being of animals and who donates their time, money and energy into giving them a better life.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to all of my readers on this blog, all of my followers on Twitter, my Facebook friends and LinkedIn connections as well as Google+ groups. Without all of you I don’t know if any of this would have ever happened.
I’d like to thank Chapters/Indigo and Coles for welcoming me into their locations and being so excited about the book. I appreciate all of their time, energy and marketing efforts to help spread the word about a little black and white cat named Panda.
A huge thank you to my award winning illustrator Jason Buhagiar, who has so much talent that it continues to astound me with every page that’s completed. You are truly gifted and thank you for partnering with me on this project. I think that we have a very bright future in children’s books together.
Thank you to my family and friends who have shown me tons of kindness, love and encouragement through this long process. And for the constant offers to help with every task. It’s almost time! I know that they are as excited as I am to see this dream come true.
Finally, I want to say thank you to my amazing husband for all of his love and support, not only with this project but also for his unwavering belief in me with every single thing I’ve ever done.He’s believed in me even when I’ve stopped believing in myself. He’s the encouraging force behind every flicker of an idea, every story and every possibility. Without him, none of this would be even possible.
