The most unexpected Peanuts book announcement

I swear, I seriously thought about writing this post for April 1st of this year, figuring all would quickly write it off as an April Fool’s announcement, and so I’d be able to tell the truth right in front of everybody and still keep the secret. But I held off, …

Snoopy Treasures reviews

This is my post for linking and quoting reviews of my book The Snoopy Treasures… and I intend to quote them all (well, not from mass-review sites, like Goodreads or Amazon), both the good and the bad. Only problem is, as of my initial post on Nov 17, I really don’t …
