Dogman Update: May 5, 2011

Hello fans - happy Cinco de Mayo!

It has been a pretty busy winter season, and now we're ready to head out into spring and summer book-signing tour mode. So far, we've had some impressive shows at Kalkaska, Indian River, Clare, Saline, and Vermontville. We also had a fabulous day at Hope Middle School in Holt, where we shared the Dogman legends with students and staff the entire day.

Be sure to check out our website for all sorts of Dogman news:

Now, we're off and running, and hopefully haunting a town near you soon! For our complete yearly tour schedule, see the link below:

Our next few stops include:
May 7: Mesick HS, Mushroom Festival
May 14-15: Boyne City Morel Festival
May 28-29: Houghton Lake MS
June 4-5: Pinckney Art in the Park (tentative)
June 17-19: Frankenmuth, Zehnders' Park
July 2: Gladwin (tentative)
July 3: Traverse City, National Cherry Festival
July 4: Elberta


We are in the final stages of the production of 'Spirit of Dogman Country' an instrumental CD set performed by regional folklore artist, David Martinka. The pre-production sounds great, and we're looking forward to getting these CDs into our fans' hands early this summer.

ALSO: There is a NEW Dogman novel in the works! I hope to be able to debut it this summer, perhaps at Cherry Fest, where so many of my previous books made their star-studded debut. This new novel, the longest yet, incorporates science fiction and spy mystery as well as delving into the fantasy realms. So far, I think it's the best novel yet!

Of course, you will be able to see updates and advanced snippets on our website starting next month:

Steve Cook, our good friend, has recently posted on his facebook that there may be a Dogman movie in the works? I guess we'll have to (im)patiently wait to hear more on this front.
