What do you think of the back cover of STINKIN’ THINKIN’ STINKS: A Kid’s Guide to the Lighter Side of Life?  Pretty nifty, huh?  You might think that this is a bit odd name compared to other books on positive thinking, but I think it’s STINKIN’ cool!

With peace and gratitude,

I am getting very close to finally finishing my latest book for kids, STINKIN’ THINKIN’ STINKS.  It teaches positive thinking in fun and humorous way.  We are now working on illustrations for each of the chapters and when that is completed, it will be off to book design for the final layout of it.  Each time I think I am done, I find one more thing to make it just a littel better.  I finally believe I am there.  We did finish the book cover but not quite ready to share with everyone but I can tell you it is AWESOME!  Keep checking here for updates on the book.  The book release is currently scheduled for a fall release.

With peace and gratitude,


Last week we moved the launch of my next book, STINKIN’ THINKIN’ STINKS, to the fall.  This will coincide nicely with the launch of school and allows us more time to do promotions.  The book itself is scheduled to go the final editor within the next two weeks.  After that is complete, the book will head to interior book design.  We completed the book cover last week and boy, it looks awesome!  We have a few illustrations to add and I recently decided to create a companion workbook for the exercises.  By moving the date, it allows me to complete the workbook by the launch date.  Will keep you posted as the book flows through the publishing process.

With gratitude and peace,


STINKIN’ THINKIN’ STINKS! is my latest book written for ages 9-13.  Although it is taking longer than I expected, I finally have a publication date.  It is scheduled to be released June 22, 2010.  We are in the process of developing the cover design and it is just about ready to go to the editor and book designer.  I have to say that this project has been quite a different one than any of my other books.  It mixes humor with personal development and provides some pretty cool exercises the younger ones will actually want to try.  I also see older children and adults checking it out because of its uniqueness.

Thank you to everyone who has provided me with encouragement on this book.  With 3 years in the making, it is certainly the longest project I have ever attempted.

Peace and gratitude,
