At Last, "Hobbes Goes to South America" is finished!

Hobbes is very excited as he had a book signing at a local bookstore! As for me, I am relieved and happy that I did finish this project. But Hobbes will live on. . .perhaps go on trips with the grandboys, where they will take pictures. It's interesting, once you give a voice to a stuffed animal, or real animal, the voice takes on a life of its own. The website is and it is an amazing site. I had a bit of a learning curve, but the quality of the books from is excellent.

Finally, the first "practice" copy is at the printers!

Hobbes is very excited as the first copy of Hobbes Goes to South America is at the printers. This is only a practice copy as it stops at Valpariso, Chile. I wanted to see what it looked like in the 7 by 7 inch size--could be too small, so I thought I would order one, the only way to tell. It has been a true learning experience, trial and error on the web site. There are many mistakes, and it will be interesting to see how it actually looks in print. Unfortunately, I will have to start all over if I change the size, but I did save the text.

The Book is Underway!

I finally learned how to use the book website and now I am underway with "Hobbes Goes to South America." Have reached Costa Rica. Hobbes is very impatient and thinks I should write faster.

Finally, continuing Hobbes story

"After a three month hiatus, recovering from a total knee replacement, I am back to attempting the book I planned. But. . .having some trouble with the book publishing blog, called Hard to negotiate from one page to another, difficulty in transferring pictures, etc. But have not given up! It could be the computer, so I am having a computer expert come and check it out--it has been very slow lately, and that could be the problem. Might just put all of it on this blog which is easier and call it:
"Hobbes South American Journal."
