I heard today that Sparky was sighted in Israel! He is also in Cozumel Mexico, Castaic CA, New York City, Miami Florida and New Orleans... Sonoma, San Luis Obispo, Santa Monica, Santa Clarita, Los Filez, Burbank, Pasadena, San Diego, Washington DC, Madison WI, Menlo Park CA, Nashville TN! If you see Sparky out and about, I would love to hear about it AND see pictures... You know like the gnome thing. All of this is very new and exciting for Sparky and me. Sparky is a thrill seeker who loves to go places and see things. So if you see him out and about PLEASE let us know!!!

The Barnes & Noble event at The Grove location was fantastic!!! (This is the Flagship Store on the West Coast) I had a video presentation on a big screen. I gave FREE Sparky the Wonderfish Stickers and Coloring pages and we colored Sparky! This B&N location purchased over 40 copies... All SOLD, except a few copies at this event!
*I have booked another event at this B&N Grove location, August 18th for over 100 Kids!!!
Ten time Emmy Award-winning cameraman, Jim Velarde shot my presentation as well as testimonials of the kids and my interview regarding my "Sparky the Wonderfish Gulf Coast Hope & Literacy Tour" plan...
Most important Q&A for me was the description of my passion for my "Sparky the Wonderfish Gulf Coast Hope & Literacy Tour" which is looking for a sponsor...
More information and photos SOON!

A friend of mine, Jimmy has a granddaughter who is obsessed (in a good way) with all things Sparky the Wonderfish! She has the book, pins, coloring pages, stickers, a T-shirt, a teddy bear wearing a Sparky the Wonderfish T-shirt and she wants me to get cracking on a Sparky PLUSH TOY asap!!!
*get your own Sparky swag at the Sparky the Wonderfish Shop!
She went to Circus Vargas last weekend and had them paint Sparky on her cheek! And this is her with her favorite performer. She had a great day!!!
Thanks to a little fish named Sparky... and the Circus!
Bye for now...

I had a meeting with the Customer Relations Manager Jon and the Greater Los Angeles Writers Society President Tony this weekend. B&N wants to work with Sparky the Wonderfish in a lot of ways. The Grove location is stocking 45 books at that location. We are partnering with The Wonder of Reading which rebuilds and restocks libraries throughout Los Angeles. We are also partnering on various outreach programs!
More information as I have it...
