You think you know the story of the ark? Think again.

You already know about Noah.

Just wait until you read the animal’s story.

“I found the pages flying by…”

“a breath of fresh air…”

“not just for children…”

Thimblerig is a little groundhog with big problems.

He’s a loner con-artist who’s losing his mojo; the wild dogs who run the forest harass him at every turn; he’s having vivid nightmares of apocalyptic floods; and worst of all, he believes he sees unicorns when everyone knows unicorns are only the stuff of legend.

But what one animal might call a problem, Thimblerig calls an opportunity.Thimblerig's Arc_3 (1) copy

In a moment of inspiration, he comes up with the ultimate con: persuade as many suckers as he can that a world-ending flood is coming; the fabled unicorns have told him where the only safe place will be; and only he can lead them to safety.

All for a reasonable price, of course.

When the flood really does come, Thimblerig has a choice: either save the ones who trusted him, or lose everything.

And that’s when he discovers that his problems have only just begun.

Thimblerig’s Ark’s first headline

My upcoming booksigning was mentioned in our local newspaper, the Martinsville Bulletin, today.  This is exciting, because it’s the first time the novel has been mentioned in traditional print media!  Hopefully it won’t be the last time.  Next up, New York Times?

Book Signing at Bookworks in Staunton Virginia

Enjoyed the booksigning at Bookworks bookstore in Staunton, Virginia this past Saturday.  It was rather hastily thrown together, and so we didn’t have much time for promotion, but it was still a fun experience, and was still able to sell several copies of Thimblerig’s Ark.

My next booksigning event will be in Martinsville, Virginia on July 17th at the Binding Time Cafe.  Should be fun, too!  If you’re in the area, plan to come by!
