Chicken Book about Courage belongs in The Family Project Hall of Fame!

Its been a long time coming, but the first batch of chicken books finally arrived at my door.  These aren’t just any chicken books.  Its a book I wrote but all family members contributed to every phase. The cover looks great.  The story is funny.  Its pictures are some of the best illustrations I’ve ever seen.  From the story’s conception, its been the genesis of more than a thousand family smiles. For nearly two years we laughed about it every day.

Inside the book the artwork is fantastic.  The illustrations are so colorful, the book is worth the price just for the illustrations. But the book is really hilarious and it eases you into the moral of the story.  Its a chicken book which teaches about courage.

The Case of the Plucked Chicken belongs in the Family Project Hall of Fame.

Did I mention its one of the prettiest books ever?

The Flatulent Pumpkin, where we trick children into learning, one story at a time!

Welcome to the world of the Flatulent Pumpkin. Its a fun world and magic. Of course there’s flatulence, but most of the time, almost all of the time, the huge orange vegetable did it, then did it again.

These stories are funny, unpredictable and more complex than your average child’s story. They are entertaining and captures the attention so well that children are tricked into learning lessons on character. Each story has its own theme. I’ll let you figure the theme to the first one. In the second story its easy to notice that the courage and responsibility of one individual saves the entire town. The third story has one of my favorite characters of all times. Since I’m trying to keep this the “no spoil zone”, I’ll leave you to find these lessons without me spoiling it for you.

These stories are not about human flatulence. They are more creative than that.

So let’s recap:

1. Flatulent Pumpkin stories are about magic!
2. Flatulent Pumpkin stories are entertaining!
3. Flatulent Pumpkin stories provides teaching moments!
4. Flatulent Pumpkin stories will make you laugh!
5. Flatulent Pumpkin stories are unpredictable!
6. There are three available and four more are planned.

These Creating stories about that would be no fun at all. Pumpkin stories are more creative than that.

One more thing! Here are one word titles of each story in order:

1. Pumpkin

2. Chicken

3. Fart

FUTURE TITLES:

4. Wind

5. Downwind

6. Cheese

7. ITS A SECRET FOR NOW!

All for now!

I’ll Fart for You

Message I received last Thursday:

Dear Mr. Rodney, Daddy told me you were writing a book about flatulence. I just wanted to let you know, if you needed someone to do sound effects, I’m a girl who can fart on demand. Daddy made me prove it twice before I could send this message. Call me 🙂

Don’t tell anyone, girls fart too.

No Time for Sleep

All of the first three stories have gone live in the ebook universes of Amazon and Barnes and Noble.  There’s still so much work to do. The next story in this series is “Gone With the Wind”. Right now the story is planted in my head and only 20% is on paper.

You writers know that 20% unedited work really means that you are 0% done, and I thought I’d be further than that now. I’ve learned that when launching a book, this self publishing thing is all-consuming and I launched three at one time.  *Kinda Kicking Myself* So this means almost no time to do anything else .

Let me take a moment to highlight something interesting. These pumpkin stories are humorous. The next one,  GWTW, continues the humor trend while moving further away from fartaculating. Those of you who’ve read the Chicken might understand what that means. GWTW is a funny thrill ride which tugs at emotions more than the other stories.

Outside of this series I’m developing my first full length book which happens to be the polar opposite of the pumpkin series. Although there will moments of humor in this book, its all serious.

Gotta get back to work.
