Baby Moo's Release Day and Celebrations!



Baby Moo and I are back together to share the news of our release day! Doesn't Moo look thrilled? ;)

He may be kind of blase about the whole thing, but I'm thrilled because Baby Moo's Great Escape is officially out in the world today. Yay!




Blurb:  

Baby Moo has a dream. He wants to travel the world and sing on the stage of the Sydney Opera House! While he loves his home at Sunrise Sanctuary, it hasn’t been the same since a piglet named Nathan showed up and stole all the attention away from Moo. Jealous of the new baby, Moo decides now is the time to make his escape and pursue his dream.

But the world outside the sanctuary gates is not quite the fun and exciting place Moo imagined, and he quickly finds himself in big trouble. Moo's friends Missy the dog and Ruthie the cat rush to help him, and land in some trouble of their own.

Lost and frightened, Moo and his friends must rely on each other to find their way back home. Will they ever see Sunrise again? 

Fundraiser: 

I'll be donating $1 to Sunrise Sanctuary for every copy (print or ebook) of Baby Moo sold in September. If you're on Twitter and wouldn't mind sending out a tweet or two to raise awareness about the fundraiser I'd really appreciate it!

Baby Moo's Great Escape by @JulesFlanders is here! $1 will be donated to @sunrise_ohio for each copy sold in Sept.  http://tinyurl.com/gpuomwm


I'm celebrating a little early this week since it's Baby Moo's big day! The Celebrate hop is hosted by Lexa Cain and co-hosted by L.G Keltner at Writing Off the Edge and Tonja Drecker at Kidbits. Visit Lexa's blog here to find out how join in the hop yourself and to see the list of participants.

I hope everyone has lots to celebrate this week!
