It's exciting to finally introduce you all to Larry the Liger: his father was a lion, his mother was a tiger! This is the new project I am working on with Fergus. Larry makes his debut in the first story in the Larry the Liger Series called The New Home. This story is free until the end of today so get it downloaded and spread the word!
In The New Home, Larry drinks too much of his mother's milk, leaving little for his brothers and sisters, and ends up abandoned outside a zoo where he is fortunate enough to be taken in by a zookeeper. Larry's adventures begin and we meet some other characters along the way.
I love the story of The New Home and I hope you all do too. Downloads are going amazingly well and clearly Larry is making his mark in the world. Feedback has been excellent so far and I look forward to reading lots and lots of reviews ;)
I would have posted this blog a lot sooner however family circumstances have delayed it somewhat. I don't want you all to miss out though so am doing it now. Hopefully you'll have a read of this blog post before the free promotion finishes at the end of Tuesday 11th December 2012. If you don't read this in time then consider buying Larry for a child you love or a friend who has young children. The whole family can enjoy this story and there will be more to come.
I found a fantastic illustrator called Des Campbell through Peopleperhour.com. That is where I got my first paid writing job with Fergus so was happy to use it to get myself an illustrator. If anyone needs an illustrator for any project they are working on then I can highly recommend Des. He was efficient, both in time and cost, and captured Larry's personality brilliantly.
Thanks for reading and I hope you all love Larry. Please leave a review once you have read the story and/or click on the 'like' button on the book page for Larry the Liger on Amazon.
If you have children and they enjoy the story then ask them to draw Larry or a scene from the story and send it to me via my Facebook page www.facebook.com/rachaelphillipsauthor. I will publish the best ones on my page and on my blog.
I hope you all have a good week :)
