Something fun that happened during the release celebration...
     Janet had several friends and family stopping in and out during the release and birthday celebration. One of those special peeps, who happened to be her sister-in-law went out Sunday, Feb. 26 to get the paper from the end of the driveway.

     When she returned to the house and pulled out the paper, the headline that greeted her eyes was too funny! So out came the camera, and you will see the headlines for yourself in the photo below:

No, it wasn't for me, but it just so happened that the Daytona 500 and NBA All Star game were going on the same day as my birthday and novel release, which in turn made for a good laugh!

Ebooks Parts 1 - 2 - and 3: Coming Soon to Amazon!

It won't be long and the ebooks will be available! We're putting the finishing touches on the map's revision to meet the required size, and be legible. All three ebooks will contain an eastern region map and a western region map. Once the map has been revised and approved, the three ebooks (Part One, Part Two, and Part Three) will all be available through Amazon.

The ebooks will contain full color illustrations (all except the map which will appear in black and white due to size restraints). Each ebook will contain its corresponding "extras" such as family trees, Terrain Master badges and group descriptions, rules to a popular game played on Maycly, etc. along with one teaser recipe each.

Be sure to stay tuned to the blog for the release of the ebooks.

Thank You!

Where do I begin to thank the numerous people who have made Maycly possible? From family to friends, from social networking to those who have taken the time to stop by my exhibit booths and introduce themselves as future writers, from my fellow authors to my amazing fans who follow this blog - the JLB Creatives Facebook page - Twitter - and so many others, I don't think I have enough room on this post to list them all. Just know that without these amazing folks Maycly would never have been published.
