Hello, readers. Paul here today. I’m not sure if I ever announced the fact that Lionel’s Grand Adventure: Lionel Goes to Camp is now available in paperback. Things have been so hectic around here, I might have forgotten. My new full time job keeps me busy enough that I can’t seem to get a lot done during the week, so I’ve been trying to get most things done on the weekend. Before I get too far into the post, I’d like to remind you to check out and enter the Escape From the Past Blog Tour hosted by I Am A Reader Not A Writer. You can read my review and enter the giveaway here.
So, back to Lionel Goes to Camp. You can order it via Createspace, Amazon, or autographed copies from my personal website. That’s right; you can personalize an autographed copy with *FREE* shipping to the U.S. Perhaps a loved one has a birthday coming up, or is experiencing back to school blues. Whatever the reason, head on over to paulrhewlett.weebly.com to check it out.
Another fun note is the fact that I will be appearing the 2nd Annual Angel of HopeFest in Downtown Utica, IL on Sunday, October 4th from 12 to 4 p.m. I’ll be at my booth with all my Lionel’s Grand Adventure books. My entry fee (along with all the other artisan vendors) will benefit Relay for Life. So, if you’re anywhere near the area, stop by and check out all the great artisan vendors and support a great cause. Oh, and you’ll be literally minutes from Starved Rock State Park, so you can plan a wonderful day of fun and adventure.
Thanks for all of your support! I hope to see you October 4th. Now I’ll leave with the blurb for Lionel Goes to Camp:
Lionel is dying to go to summer camp to try to learn more about his dad. But did his mom even sign him up, or is the joke on him waiting for a letter that will never come? Lionel has never met his dad, and his mom never talks about him, but Lionel’s magical Three-Toed-Potbellied Walbaun foot has him convinced the answers are at Camp Bonine. Lionel does get his letter during a disastrous trip to the Post Office; he’s going to camp! His excitement for camp is quickly doused when he learns he’s rooming with the biggest bully in school—Tad Winters.
After being tripped, pranked, and set up by Tad, Lionel finds himself stuck doing dishes with Martha the kitchen lady. Lionel finally gets his chance to get even when the day of the big scavenger hunt arrives. The boy and girl winners get to spend the day at Lake Yellowhorn. Will Carrie win for the girls? Will Lionel beat Tad and get to go with her? Lionel will have to endure Martha, wander through the desert in the old west, find his way through the woods, escape bad guys, and collect all the items before everyone else if he wants a chance to spend the day with Carrie at Lake Yellowhorn, survive summer camp, and find out the mystery of his dad. Luckily, Lionel has his magical charm to help him out, or will it land Lionel in a mess-and-a-half he can’t get out of?
