Dogman Update 10/15/2008

Hey there all you Dogman fans across Michigan and around the world!

WOW! Have we been busy so far this fall! The Little Blue Tent has been sighted all over northern Michigan! Stops so far have included Manistee, Grayling, Frankenmuth, St. Johns, Mackinaw City, and Charlevoix.

We've been surrounded by apples, cranberries, pumpkins, and corn stalks as the fall season is fully underway.

Stories have flooded in these past two months, including an episode from the 1960s in Pinconning, the annual midnight wolfman run in AuGres (based upon a monster sighting in the area), and a spine-tingling tale of a eerie howling creature from Dansville (which can be found in the local library archives, I've been told!). We'll need to hear more about these events and will be looking into the validity of them in the near future. Of course, if any of our fans have more stories to tell (or confirmations on these stories here), please email us immediatly:

Haunted Halloween Literary Extravaganza!

On October 31, Halloween Night, we will be haunting Horizon Books of Petoskey from about 4:30 pm until late at night. I have the honor and priveledge of hosting a young author's writing workshop at the bookstore and then reading scary selections from my books. Horizon Books is also hosting a costume contest based on literary characters and giving out delicious delicacies prepared by their Mad Scientists!

And best of all, Halloween Night will be the judging of the Scariest Stories in Northern Michigan contest in three categories: elementary, middle school, and high school/adult. All story applications are due to Horizons by Wednesday, October 29, and there are fabulous prizes including gift certificates and books.
