We apologize, but Tony Fly Tames The Sky has been postponed due to issues with Amazon Kindle. We will need to spend several hours redoing the interior of the book to make it acceptable for Amazon Kindle. We’ve received conflicting information, but will try to get the book The way it needs to be for publishing.
Thank you for your patience, and once again we apologize to all of the Tony Sly fans out there.
WE ARE LAUNCHING A Kickstarter campaign on 7-1-2020 to try and get our books into hardcover, audio books, possibly a movie/TV movie (which is still in the works), and a number of other things. We have lots of different pledges you can do to help out with. From signed books, signed original illustrations, merchandise, and some other special rewards for pledging some money towards the project. Go check it out and please please please share so we can try to hit our goal. With Kickstarter it’s all or nothing and we’re going big.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
Sorry I haven’t touched my blog in forever. I am working on a number of big things…. hopefully. I have been very busy with my electrical apprenticeship, getting married this past June, and buying a house this past May. Along with our new little puppy, Nala, and work on the house I haven’t had much time for books but I’m budgeting my time for that now.
I am finishing Tony’s Butterflies Italian translation thanks to Daniele Ridolfi. I am getting another book ready to be on Storytime Sandi, because we love seeing our books on her awesome YouTube show. I am getting two books written and edited to send out to agents this coming January 2020, but if I get rejected on them I will be sure to
self-publish them since I already have multiple people asking where they can buy them (I had to be the bad guy telling them that it’s not even a book yet). I also have another book being illustrated by Shanilee Fields about an elephant with superpowers. Aside from all of that craziness, I’m also editing and about to start illustrating the sequel to Tony’s Butterflies.
Lots of stuff going on!!!! I promise to blog more about what’s going on so anyone who wants to can stay in the loop. I’ll also try to throw some pictures up here too because I know I always love articles with pictures.
If any of you missed it, I was currently on Fox 31 (KDVR Denver) thanks to Jeremy Hubbard. I joined their feature “Serving Those Who Serve” with Rob Bingham, the president of the Colorado Veterans Project. Without spoiling too much, feel free to watch the segment at the link below or click here.
Back at the end of May 2018, I finished the book Tony’s Butterflies. Dedicated to the late and very great Tony Sly. A singer and songwriter for the punk band No Use For A Name, I handed over the rights and profits to the Tony Sly Music Foundation for Kids…for FOREVER! Actually the rights are in Tony’s daughter’s names, but close enough.
The Tony Sly Music Foundation for Kids has announced that from today through December 31, 2018….yes, that’s the rest of 2018, will be donating the profits from Tony’s Butterflies to Guitars In The Classroom. A growing charity that is located throughout 10 states (including my home state of Colorado). Guitars In The Classroom helps get music into classrooms and instruments in children’s hands. Why wouldn’t you want to help them? Everyone listens to music! Yes, I know everyone has their own genre(s) that they like.
So why not support both charities and get something in return? A children’s book that will make adults cry and kids will ask them to read it again. How will it make you cry? Just read it and find out. Go to Amazon and search “TONY’S BUTTERFLIES” or click on the link below.
