"Stories from the Spirit Guide Bar," a collection of seven stories from The Eight Fingered Criminal's Son and The Spirit Guide Bar, is sooo close to ready to roll. We have a front and back cover and the CDs have been created.
The release date is set for September 13th, and the collection will be available for download and in CD format. Details on the Arizona kick off event are coming soon.
You can listen to one of the stories at this link:
Teachers around the world have incorporated The Eight-Fingered Criminal's Son into their curriculum. Okay that was a stretch, but educators in California, New York, and Arizona are trying out the book in their classrooms this fall. A few Arizona college and high school teachers teachers are already using the book for independent reading, narrative writing, and journaling lessons.
Gary Gidak and Pred Perez work on the music for "General Grant."
Here's a wacky Eight-Fingered Criminal's Son project created by an Arizona high school student.
"Stories from the Spirit Guide Bar" will be available at The Book Frog in Rolling Hills, California on September 13th. Co owner Pete Ledesma has agreed do his Elvis impersonation, and his right arm hand man Jackie has agreed to wear a frog suit to help celebrate the CD release. Okay, I just made that up, but Jackie does have frog suit and Pete does do an Elvis impersonation. It wouldn't hurt to ask.
