The book is needed even though you are reading the book yourself on the show to see the length of the book, scan and display 4 to 5 pictures from it, one being the cover, and have it in case we have technical problems to finish the show. (It does happen! 😀 )
Books given the us are sent to the Children’s Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Memphis, TN.

WHAT I’M WORKING ON

Right now I’m working on a book of my adult short stories called, Short Stories and Other Imaginings For The Reading Spot. Some pictures will be sketching and some in shades of gray, (not fifty shades!) This one is for a story called Spiders, a short short, about two paragraphs long. In the story the woman is working an apple press while she thinks about the things that are happening in her life.

Another project I’m doing sketches for is a sequel for my children’s book, Janoose The Goose  called, Janoose & The Fall Feather Fair. The Fox returns to Free Range Farm and he wants something from Janoose!
This book I co-wrote with my grandson. It’s in the sketching stage as you can see by the picture. Hope you will come back to see how these two projects progress.
Thanks, JD
