Bilingual Bedbug Book is in Japan

In my last post, Japanese-English Bilingual News, I mentioned that a book shipment containing the Japanese-English Bilingual version + Bedbug toys was being readied to be sent to Japan.

The shipment has arrived and the Bedbug Who Wouldn't Bite is now available to Japanese readers who will enjoy it as a bedtime story and/or use it to learn English.

With "Bedbug's" arrival in Japan, information has begun appearing across online sellers such as Amazon Japan and Japanese sites such as Amelia Network.

The Bedbug Toy is also available via Amazon Japan.

It is exciting to see book I going out to a larger audience and it is my hope that sleepy little Bedbug, who says please in each story and who chooses not to bite, will strike a chord with and capture the hearts of Japanese readers.

"Don't jump on the bed, I'm a sleepyhead, and I want to snooze tonight."

Whirlwind Week Following Publication of Book I--Sleep became a distant memory. No doubt about it, I was as busy as a bug.

Bedbug Talks About Making of Book I--Oh dear! Living as I do in children's beds makes life rather challenging. What's a bug gotta do to get some sleep?


Bedbug Books & Toys in Grand Forks--Upon reading the Weekender Newspaper article, the owner of Soul Creations in Grand Forks, B.C. ordered Bedbug books and created a window display.

The recent release of the film version of Where The Wild Things Are is testimony to the fact that a simple concept, if well done, can create a global phenomenon. So it is with the children's book written by Melody Rhodes - The Bedbug Who Wouldn't Bite. Webphemera

Amazon Author Page

Bedbug books appear across a number of sites online, and now, my author page has been added at Amazon

My new author page has been created at Amazon. My Tweets will stream there, as well as posts from this site, so Amazon visitors can stay updated about Bedbug news.

What I like about Amazon Author Pages is that they include multiple features, such as photos and a listing of all an author's published books available via the Amazon site.

Authors can also include a feed URL, which means that snippets of their latest posts will also be included. For those with book-related sites, this cross-syncing is a great offering.

Authors are given an author URL they can post to Facebook and Twitter right from their author page and which they can embed in email signatures.

Received My Copies of Coloring Book II

I received my copies of coloring book II. We've all been working hard to see publication of this second  book in the Wonderful Wishes series of coloring books.


Final adjustments are in the works, but soon... soon...

We have actually decided to release two versions of this book, one in a coloring book format and the other in a picture book format.

The highly detailed and amusing illustrations are almost too cute to color, some have said.

After consideration, a decision was made to make both a:
  • COLORING BOOK: a version for kids to color in
  •  PICTURE BOOK: a pre-colored version, hand-bound with ribbon and straw for those who want to keep this story to read and as a keepsake.  
The story spotlights making humane eating choices, so that no animal is harmed or endangered. Wolf is a thylacine that was hunted to extinction. Other animals depicted in the illustrations also were/are endangered. Bedbug teaches Wolf and the three pigs that peacefulness and cooperation can have lasting rewards.

Hurrah! Let's celebrate!
