Dewey In The News
Things Have Been Busy - But Exciting March 13, 2009

Been a very busy time for me. We were on the road for a month in Florida, London, and Lisbon Portugal. Great trip but too much at once. We love Portugal and want to go back someday for vacation. The Dewey book is still #3 on the NYT Bestseller list and on the 24th of March, it will mark 6 months on the list in the top 5. Yeah!!! we have staying power. I am so happy to be home but no rest here. We are still completing the first children's book to be published in September and working hard on the young adult version of Dewey. I signed the film contacts yesterday so that should move along faster now. I still don't know when the filming will begin but signing the contracts means the script writer can officially begin writing. We are also working on photos, calendars, postcards, and other Dewey merchandize. It will be awhile before it is widely available but I will keep you informed.

I have an interview with a Montreal newspaper tomorrow and finished one last night with a Korean magazine. We are selling well in other countries also. The book was published Feb. 19th in Britain and within 5 days was #3 on their bestseller list. Sales of other books seem to be dropping in this economy but not Dewey. People need a feel-good read right now. I am getting letters and emails from all over the world every day. My next signing is in Sioux City at PetSmart on Saturday March 14th at 4 PM. PetSmart is now selling the book in all their stores nationally. I am also going to try to set up another signing locally for all the folks that are begging for a signed book and didn't get it done earlier. It will be added to my schedule of events on this site when I get it settled.

Heather Beary has completed the bronze sculpture of Dewey for the library. The statue was commissioned by Tim Clifford (former Spencer resident)in memory of his parents. It is absolutely beautiful. I will send photos of the art piece as soon as I can download them from my camera. I am thrilled with how it turned out. If you get a chance to visit Spencer Public Library, you need to come in and see it for yourself. That's the latest news. Talk to you all soon.
