Pelican Publishing is publishing my book, Camels HO! Ships of the Desert in Texas.
It's creative nonfiction detailing the Great Camel Experiment in the 1860s. Camels were purchased in Turkey and Africa, shipped to Texas and lived at Camp Verde, Texas. They were to help open up the Wild West of the United States.
You'll have to read the book to learn more, but it's a fascinating tidbit of Texas history.
I'm not sure of the publication date, but will be sure to let you know!
I continue to be on the search for author school visits and hope you consider me, if you are a teacher, librarian or writing coach in an elementary school.

Promotion for two new picture books sure is fun. The best part is reading to the kids at a presentation. Talking and signing books afterwards is GREAT!
Promoting four picture books is GREAT!
My school visit at Moreno Elementary in Houston was fantastic. They made me feel like I was the most important person they had ever met. There were posters, flyers, excited students, and a fabulous introduction. The students were great listeners and very polite.

Foster Elementary in Kingwood, TX sure knows how to greet and treat an author. What a surprise to drive by and see my name on the marquee in front of the school.
