Greetings my people.

I'd like to first thank all the people who have helped me with my book launch by spreading the word to the world.  I'd also like to thank those who have already purchased the book and pre-thank those of you who haven't yet but are considering.  If it's a question of rent or book...go with rent.  If it's a question between forgot and book...go with book when you remember.  If a question between some other thing I am unaware of for a plethora of reasons or book...again...go with book.  Click HERE to purchase.

The initial launch was good, that according to numbers and projections.  Of the many. many, many books available for purchase on Amazon, we hit #3048 in books.  That's quite good; however, there is much work to be done.  (That for another time)

The book, The Tree With No Branches, is my first published book.  It was a joy to write for many reasons.  One of the many reasons was the message...a small tree, not liked, ugly even, grows on the inside, what can't be seen.  He grows his roots deep which ultimately helps him in a marvelous and wonderful way.  It's a book about character, perseverance, and accepting others who are different.  Then, when the illustrator added the pictures...WOW...I know you and your kids and/or grandkids will LOVE this book.  The Tree With No Branches is a keeper.

For those of you interested in such things, The Tree With No Branches was actually the sixth book I wrote and took me about four hours over two days.  I'm so exhausted just thinking about it.  And now that I am thinking about it, my finger hurts.  Maybe that's because I smacked it earlier.  Either way, it certainly adds to the drama.  There are also twenty-nine varieties of tree mentioned in the book along with a bunny that might just appear in The No Fuzzy Bunny, coming out Feb-Mar of 2013.

I'd like to express my deepest thanks to all of you, I just don't know how without my favorite pair of socks on (in the wash) so I'll express my thanks in some other fathomable way.  You're the best...Thanks!

I bid you all good tidings and happy trails.  

Until we meet again,

Johnny Knew
