All in a days work! Almost three weeks ago I anxiously awaited the face lift to Johnny Green! Now - today the publisher says - it will be complete! I am so thrilled with the new cover and hope you will be as well. If you have visited my website, www.suzantylerdecker.com or the Xlibris bookstore website www.xlibris.com you have found out that the first edition of Johnny Green and the Little Green Man is 'currently unavailable.' Never fear! Johnny will be back soon and I will post again when that happens! Johnny and I met with a very 'green' lady yesterday and we are so excited. www.bonniecranmer.com She is connected with Natural Awakenings magazine, and as well as many other entrepreneurial ventures, and will be giving Johnny a glowing review but will be interviewing both myself and Julia (Johnny's illustrator) for the November magazine. And by the way, Julia now has her own blog now, so please take some time to check it out! http://www.juilamfloyd.blogspot.com Talk to you very soon!

Hoorah! This week Johnny Green will have a new look. The cover is being redesigned and as soon as I have the copy in hand (or email that is) I will post it for you to see! He should also be available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble within a short amount of time. Rolling it out just in time for school to start. Be sure to check in on Johnny on facebook - become his friend - and let your kids enjoy the interactive websites he directs you to! Surely some enjoyment on these rainy and hot days that left of summer. This is one that was posted today. http://www.dnr.state.wi.us/org/caer/ce/eek/index.htm. Enjoy!!!

Many things have happened since my last post. Most importantly, Johnny Green has his own facebook now! Just click on the link on the right to see daily Winks on Recycling, (well almost daily), tips on recycling and great interactive websites for children to learn more about our Earth! I have linked a website for readers that would like to network with other readers that enjoy reading and reviewing books, Goodreads.com. Oh and Johnny Green is on this website as well as myself. If you are writing, illustrating, review books, etc. there are other social networks that you can also join. SheWrites - only a month old - has gotten off to an incredible start offering all sorts of interaction on a group level for authors and more. JacketFlap again is an excellent social network. I'm finally starting to GET IT and hope to learn a lot from these people! I hope to start to Tweet soon! Last, but not least, I have decided to pursue traditional publishing of Johnny Green. I would love to share the WHY of this but might get in trouble if I do. Never-the-less, Johnny will be available through the Xlibris Bookstore, click on my website link on the right and you can get to it through there and will also be available on Amazon and Barnes and Nobles websites soon. We are redoing his cover, editing some internal things and will be better than ever. Such a great story, needs a great publisher!!! More to come on this soon! I will talk to you soon - Suzan!
