GOOD NEWS NELSON Launch Parties!

Two launch celebrations coming up - one virtual and one in the flesh!

Physical Launch - Saturday December 8, 2012
11:00am to 1:30pm

At The Montague Bookmill

I am celebrating the release of GOOD NEWS NELSON! Join me for snacks, questions (and answers), signings and readings of the book. Browse the Bookmill and pick up some lunch at The Lady Killigrew while you're there. Then roll on over to visit the Dakin Pioneer Valley Human Society's Leverett Adoption Center!

The publisher, Story Pie Press, is donating 30% of proceeds to the National Humane Society and I will be donating 30% of my proceeds at this event to the Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane society!

For those of you who may be travelling to get here the Bookmill is at 440 Greenfield Road in Montague, Ma. and if you are interested in visiting the Dakin shelter they are at 163 Montague Road in Leverett and they are open Saturday from noon to 4:30.

I will also be reading this Friday, November 30th in Northampton for the Family Community Service Night organized by Hilltown Families. I look forward to bringing GOOD NEWS NELSON to that atmosphere of community service and to hearing how kids and families experience this cool first-time event. You can find out more about it at

There's lots of new reviews up on the Story Pie website so check back there if you haven't been in a while.

If you have any questions please feel free to send me an email.

P.S. Please plan on bringing cash or personal checks - I am not credit card equipped

Good News Nelson

Written by Jodi Moore and Illustrated by Brendan Flannelly-King (me!)

Coming out December 4 2012!

I am happy to announce that the first full-length picture book I have illustrated is coming out very soon! It is written by Jodi Moore and published by Story Pie Press. You can preorder right now through Amazon!

If you live in the my neck of the woods you can come to a book release party to get a signed copy. I will post the details of that, as they arise.

My thanks to Mary Rand Hess and Amber Leberman for working with me to create the best illustrations for Jodi's lovely story.

Oh yes, the story - neighbors helping neighbors, youth empowerment, animal rescue, compassion, friendship and adorable little kitties throughout. You can read more about the story at the Story Pie Press site and you can read some reviews at the book's Amazon page. I'm also excited that a portion of proceeds from the sales of Good News Nelson will be going to the Humane Society!

It's been a fun project, and I am happy to share it with you all.
