Diane and I headed out to Alto Vineyards last Friday night, for a glass of wine, and more importantly, to say Hey! to our friends Cindy and Kirby Pringle. I blogged about them before, when they published their first book, Happy Tails: Earl and Pearl on the Farm. Cindy and Kirby have just published their second book featuring Earl and Pearl, titled The Call of Nature.
According to the website,
In “Happy Tails: The Call of Nature,” Pearl Barker buys her first computer and cell phone. Soon, she’s an addicted tech-hound. The Barker farm is falling apart and her husband, Earl, decides it’s time for action. He takes Pearl on a vacation to visit his twin sister, Earlene, in order to get Pearl disconnected from technology and reconnected to nature.Sounds like Cindy and Kirby might have followed me and Clint around for the last year or so to get the storyline for this one. Here are the happy authors at the signing:
As luck would have it, one of the models for the book showed up at the same time we were there. Charlene Anchor, pictured below, portrayed Earl's twin sister, Earlene. Pretty big gig, a starring role!
Here she is as Earlene. Look how convincing she is; she's clearly a natural. Her cat, Andy, on the left, is also looking very dapper, on this page.
Share the love, people, these books are adorable. Cindy and Kirby will be at Pages for All Ages on Saturday morning, from 10:30 to noon. Stop by, say hello, take a gander, and start some early Christmas shopping. You'll get your book signed by Cindy, Kirby, Earl, and Pearl.
You can also order the books, or any of their photos for framing, online: www.dogtownartworks.com
Seriously, each precious page is a work of art that is going to put a smile on your face. You're gonna love it!
