Hatching books and buttons

Sorry I haven’t been writing much lately. I’ve either been busy with various projects or resting my eyes. Right now I’m getting ready to be part of the first Spring Book Hatching at the Vancouver Public Library (June 9, 1-3pm, Alice McKay Room). Over thirty B.C. authors and illustrators will be there presenting their newest books for kids. There will also be activities, prizes and treats (Purdy’s Chocolates is one of our sponsors!). I’ll be there with my two latest novels, Dog House Blues and The Truth About Rats (and Dogs). (By the way, I’m on the organizing committee for the Book Hatching and did the “chick hatching out of the egg” part of the design below (Kari Winters created the original background image and Kirsti Wakelin did the overall design, making everything work):

I borrowed a one-inch button-maker from Blim Gallery this week and have been making buttons to sell at the Hatching or to give away to anyone who buys one of my books. I’ll be donating the money from button sales to the SPCA. Below are a few of the animal-themed buttons I made for the Hatching. I’ll post some of my other buttons later (I love the button-making machine!)
