I would like to make a request. As many of you know, I used the Hopalong Hollow Gazette to journal the creation of my latest book, Mamsey Bear and Mopkin. For 2 years I posted paintings, drawings and works in progress to inform and entertain you in the creation of this book. Creating a book can be a very lonely activity and it is only when the project is complete and sent out into the world and into the hands of readers, that opinions are formed and the author realizes, either to their delight or dismay, what the public thinks. Now, my friends, if you get this book, I need your feedback. Some of you have already contacted me with your reflections and I greatly appreciate that! I'm not looking for a pat on the back, (unless you want to give one), I simply wish to know your views, most particularly on the story, and also on the illustration. If you would be so kind, as to comment or send an email: OR better yet; the book is now available on Amazon and just waiting for your reviews. Customer Book reviews matter; Most of us trust a customers opinion more than an editorial review when researching an item. I realize we are all busy people with much to do, but if you have a chance to leave a few words it would be of great importance to me, as the author/ illustrator. Personally, this story is my favorite thus far... but my thoughts are not important, yours are. Mamsey Bear awaits your thoughts and thanks you in advance!
And Dimity thanks you too!
