Ramone's ABCs on Mars

Just in time for summer reading, I have released my third Rocket Team book featuring Ramone and his robot pal, Pip.

Ramone is a young astronaut that roams the solar system as part of the international Rocket Team.  Rocket Team astronauts need lots of training, and this ABC book is a good start for future Mars explorers. At the end of this book, you’ll find some activities to get you ready for more astronaut training.

Paperback: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1097465357

Kindle: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07S6CB48K

Unlike the rhyming, sing-song structure of the first two books, this is a narrative ABCs book suitable for grades 1-4.

Also, I'd like to acknowledge Andy Weir, author of The Martian.  You may remember they made his book into a movie starring Matt Damon.  Andy helped me kick around some ideas for some of the more difficult letters.

Your Free Poem: Flint




Flint

Those million patient raindrops
at last unearthed a broken flint
crafted with skill and care
by an ancient hunter's hands.
It hangs on my neck now, 
imperfect and magnificent. 
A reminder of things broken,
a reminder of eternity.

Become a Rocket Team Patron

I am starting a new Patreon project for book publications for the Rocket Team series of children's easy readers. 

More here: https://www.patreon.com/RocketTeam

Encyclopedia.com says:

"The patron served a fundamental function in the development of art in early modern Europe. In addition to being an active consumer of art, he was its initiator, often dictating form and content."

Patreon is a platform that allows me to connect with patrons. With a subscription-style payment model, you pay a tiny monthly amount in exchange for exclusive access, extra content, and special yearly publications with free shipping.

You can rest easy knowing that your money goes directly towards creating more of what you love. Take a look and please consider becoming one of my patrons.

Georgia Highlands College

To celebrate National Poetry Month, I was invited to Georgia Highlands College on April 23.  The library staff at this lovely campus had prepared a corner overlooking a nice pond and, better yet, loaded a table full of pizza for the attendees.

Check out the Georgia Writers Registry to book me for your next author event.

Here are a few photos of the day.
