Come out and join our author when your child is off from school - October 14th!

No school for your children on October 14th? 

Bring them to the


to meet our author!


Neighbor Girl will be stopping by the library at 11AM  on Monday, October 14, 2013 to discuss our book, sign copies and answer questions. Do you want to motivate your child to read and write? Our super, human friend, Neighbor Girl, will help you with that!

She will have copies of our book available for purchase and you will be some of the first humans to see our print book, The Perpetual Papers of the Pack of Pets, with the new cover, added interior illustrations and a sneak peek to our second book (due out in 2014). 

You may also enter to win tickets to the Miller Center production of Bunnicula on 10/26 while you are there!

Neighbor Girl might even bring Stanley's dog house with her - you never know.  


Can't make it? Why not ask your local library/school to bring her in to visit!

New Cover Reveal for our First Book, The Perpetual Papers of the Pack of Pets

It is here! It is here!

The new cover to our book, The Perpetual Papers of the Pack of Pets, is here. It is not live on Kindle or in print just yet  - Cool Mom has a few hours of work to do to make that happen. Leanpub, however, has been updated and we are able to give you the sneak peek now.

The goal was to keep it simple and fun.  What do you think?


We adore the work of artist Miro Chun who created our likeness using wire. Yes, wire!
She deserves a big bowl full of treats.

Thank you for reading and sharing,
