Check out www.celiacwalk.org — 3/28/09 in Orlando, to support research for celiac disease. I’ll be out there with Danny t-shirts and all kinds of other promo. I hope all you fans out there can join us! Currently I’m still working a lot to finalize the research and text for my Gluten Free site.
I’m getting excited about the European Book Fair in Bologna, Italy!! Danny will be making his presence felt at the Fair from March 23rd through 26th. I sure can’t wait to hear the responses to this one!
Lots more to come for Danny! I’m in the process of creating bookmarks, stickers, postcards and promo items. Planning for lots of fun for kids and all of us kids at heart. Danny the Dragon contest being developed to.
My two puppies Bailey and Teddy graduated from their Canine Obedience class with flying colors! This is the first step to getting them to the status of “Canine Citizens,” which means they’re allowed to accompany me to schools, libraries and hospitals for book readings to children. I have an overall purpose with this: it gives me a chance to show kids how reading to their animals is a great way of improving reading abilities. It has been proven that reading aloud improves reading skills and speed.
Since we had such a successful debut at the Toy Fair, now I’m talking with my team about making Danny into a plush toy…the possibilities are seemingly endless! This is another idea that I’m setting aside though for the moment. For now, Rosie and I have other projects to handle.
Still anticipating an update on the book shipment to the Exhibit, but I’m sure that everything will work out just fine. In the meantime, I’ve been coming up with ideas for incorporating raw and dehydrated gluten-free foods into some darn good recipes. I have a special interest in gluten-free due to having been diagnosed as gluten-sensitive years ago.
I have so many fun projects in the works. I’m putting together more ideas and recipe developments for the upcoming Danny the Dragon cookbook and the Gluten-Free Help website. This is very much up my alley because I love to cook! I am continuing to develop and compile.
The books are slated to come off the presses some time in early January, with enough time to get shipped over to Combined Book Exhibits for the other Book Shows. I am enjoying all of this so much! The ALA in January is Danny the Dragon’s big debut!
