A Long Time Coming...

Well, after months of being away what can I say?  I can tell you the truth.  I've been busy beyond words helping to develop my website for children's books.

I think that most of you know about six years ago I sold a book (and a series of ten more) to a publisher in Canada.  The books were based on my horse Tango.  The series was my heart.  I was excited beyond belief.  Then the illustrator and the publisher got into a legal battle that could not be resolved. I got my rights back just after the first book was illustrated.

I won't go into the long saga again, but for those of you who don't know, my book was stolen.  I found out when someone said, "My granddaughter loves your book."
"Which one?" I asked.
"Tango and Tilly," she replied.

My book was being sold all over the internet.  I contacted an attorney who said it would cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars to pursue legal action because the layers of the internet are so deep.

So I moped around for a very long time.  Then, with a little help from my friends, I decided to try to develop a website based around Tango and the stories that almost write themselves.  The website is for kids who love animals. The website comes from my heart.

Please take a minute and visit Tango and Tilly at www.tangoandtilly.com

If you don't have a Kindle or an e-reader you can download one for free and your kids can read the books right from their computers.  Here's where to get the free e-reader devices:

This has been a long time coming.  I can't tell you how much your support means to me.

I ran off and forgot to tell you that I ordered 3 of your books and am planning a give away on Sasha's blog if you don't mind. I would also like to mention you when I do. Please let me know if that is ok. I don't want to do anything without telling you first.

PS. I am so sorry that those people stole your book, but I'm glad to "see" you are no longer moping around!! Take it from a Drama Queen who struggles with her own share of mood swing-infused pity parties. Moping around is not good!! ;)
Again, welcome back!!

Your positivity is awesome Raelyn. I'm doing this on my own this time without a publisher. I think through networking it will work. And I DO want to share Tango with the world. Anne is right. Tango rings me so much joy!
