"Harvest Time at Sheldon's Blueberry Farm."

This weekend I finished up the editorial process with Karen Schader for the third story in The Blueberry Boy Series, "Harvest Time at Sheldon's Blueberry Farm." 


If you've read "The Blueberry Bandit" and now "Sheldon, The Antioxidant Super Hero of Jaloonsville" you'll be looking forward to the third story, "Harvest Time at Sheldon's Blueberry Farm."

Sheldon Bilberry's Farm is FILLED with ripened blueberries

Excerpt:

          Sheldon had just climbed onto his tractor when he heard an unbearable sound: the squishing of a blueberry.
“Berry Squad, I’ve got some serious business to take care of!” Sheldon shouted. He drove the tractor around the barn, over the hill, and through the open field passing the side of a pond, and there they were—squished blueberries scattered along a crushed row.
“Stomp … stomp … stomp!" Sheldon followed the sound of footsteps through the blueberry rows. “You’re breaking my heart. This has to stop!" Sheldon shouted.
The footprints were big, the stomps were loud, and all that Sheldon could ask himself was, who was this person and why would anyone squish blueberries?
The stomper was weaving in and out of the blueberry bushes. Sheldon's feet pulsed with a surprising burst of energy. Leaping over one bush to the next, he chased the stomper through the maze of blueberry bushes.
Who is this blueberry stomper? A big, brown, blueberry-eating grizzly bear!

You can be an Antioxidant Super Hero Too!


Your fingers will get really BLUE!


Grab your bowl and fill it with Blueberries right to the brim!
Take the Blueberries with your fingers and
drop, DROP, DROP...
the Blueberries right into your mouth with a grin!
Your inner Antioxidant Super Hero
will start to activate!
Non blueberry eaters will then begin
to realize what your Super Powers will be
when you keep on eating them!
They'll love blueberries too,
I    N     S    T    A    N   T    L    Y!
When you give a non blueberry eater a Blueberry to try they'll become a Blueberry Lover just like you and I!

ONE...TWO...THREE! BLUEBERRIES RELEASE THE POWER IN ME!

That's right!  Sheldon's penchant for Blueberries has saturated his tastebuds enough to reveal his Super Hero Powers. DON'T MISS OUT ON MY NEW CHILDREN'S BOOK! It's currently being sent to the printing press!
This is a part of a Series so I'm writing my third book now while I await my second book's release!

Professional Capes Sewn for the Plush Doll



I picked up the capes today for the plush doll of Sheldon, The Antioxidant Super Hero from the cleaners. Just in time for release of my new book. Let me know what you think! It has velcro in the front. I think it looks great! Job well done! :) I'm very excited!

Absolute Final Phase!

My manuscript and illustrations are in the hands of the graphic designer. This is the last phase before it will be available for sale on barnesandnoble.com and amazon.com! At that time, I will include a link from this website for purchase. I believe in evolution and the development of a Series.

I think that you will be able to see within this next book, not only the growth in me as a writer but my vision and ability to boost the main character. I think that writer's, especially of a Series, can gain that strength and depth which can result in each book advancing to a better and better than review and overall greater response.

I also have some capes being sewn. I will get them back next Saturday and post a picture of the plush doll with the cape professionally done! Look Forward with me!

Copyright Protected*

On a Super Soulful Sunday, I copyrighted my text and illustrations. Next up is work with the graphic designer to merge the text with the illustrations!

It's All Done on...Purpose!

The purpose of his cape is for ANTIOXIDANT PROTECTION!

Writer's Vault

It looks like I am going to register for The Television Writers Vault Membership today. Sell a TV Show Idea or Script Website

I really have to make my script longer. I'll have to work on that today along with applying for a membership to The Writer's Vault. I need a producer to finance my project.

The Sketched Illustrations are done and will now proceed to color.

Sewing is no joke... I can't seem to find my way around the machine at all but I'll have to sooner or later. The capes have to look like I've been sewing for centuries. Catch up with you Lata.

I have eighteen illustrations within my Sequel. Although there's already 4 done, I wanted to share my first one sketched out!

















Once my illustrations are sketched, they'll be done in color and then I'll be able to change the layout of my blog. I'll also make a Staples run to make new business cards to include both books and a photo of the plush doll with the cape! I'll be borrowing the sewing machine tomorrow and hopefully make cape after cape with pure ease!

Velcro for the Cape

I just took a picture of the plush doll with the velcro strip. I cut it and looped it around the opening of the top of the cape and gently stuck the two ends together! This is much better. I don't know if you can tell by the picture but it's a black strip of velcro. It also looks neater.

The Editorial Process is Complete-----Yes! The Illustrations will now come to fruition, no pun intended!


My editorial process is complete. I received a quote from the illustrator. I will begin the illustrations next week! A few events that I will be attending soon are Script Frenzy's Interest Meeting on March 15th at 7PM in Rockaway, NJ's Public Library. I will also be at the Women in Animation's Meeting with Bob Higgins, VP of Freemantle Media on March 19th at the South Street Seaport in NY. Stay Tuned!

Animasher.com is closing down.

The site that I created all my videos on is closing down. :( I'm so sad and I know a lot of other people are too. I had too much fun on that website. I was able to save all my videos just in time before they eliminated it all together. I used a recording software called Camtasia since all the videos ran off their server. I will now have all the videos I created permanently saved. Pheeww! I reposted each one but just in a different format of course. My site will look a little different but all you need to do is click on the hyperlink entitled Video to view. I'm keeping you posted!
