Dreams… Coming True?

I ran across this video today:

And it screamed at me, “Nick! See??? Dreams come true! And it NEVER, EVER hurts to ask!”

We’ve been doing a lot of asking lately. Sending out project ideas to different folks… seeing if anyone bites.

And of course we’ve been doing a lot of dreaming, too. Our next book, Casey and Callie Cupcake, comes out on Amazon.com this Friday. I’m hoping it all comes together, and with your help, it hits #1 on Amazon!

The response here locally has been great so far… here I am, appearing on the local news:

Keep dreaming with me…

7 Days — Visiting Schools, Eating Cupcakes…

What a great day! We visited two schools in Westland and Wayne, Michigan— in and around the hometown of co-author Joe Kelley. We can’t say enough how fortunate we’ve been for the amazing support displayed by these communities. Here are some photos from our day of promoting Casey and Callie Cupcake, which arrives on Amazon NEXT FRIDAY!

These are some loyal friends of Joe… including Paula, who is second from the left. She is the name behind Paula the Pretty in Pink Cupcake in the book!

And here I am, trying to look all cool leaning on the podium.

Going out and reading our books to kids is the highlight of what we do!

And getting them involved is great, too. Here, they are trying to remember three of the different kinds of cupcakes mentioned in the book!

All of the kids were presented with an official sketch from the book— which they can color or frame!

At our second school for the day, this student was selected as her classroom’s Crusty! What does that mean? She is friendly, helpful, encouraging, wise… and she tries to promote everyone getting along!

The kids love it when we allow them to do a “crazy face” picture!

 

I love these photos that people have been sharing on Facebook lately, “if I get 1,000,000 likes…” out of the pure ridiculousness of it all. Here is our version:
