While doing a little research on the kids' book and online experience we're publishing through frank, Toe Jam and The Toenail Fairies, I encountered FaerieCon 2007. Billed as an event "celebrating music, art and imagination inspired by the realm of faerie," how could I resist?
So my daughters, my mom and I packed our burlap bags with a few hundred Toe Jam trading cards and flew to Phili to share our story and take it all in. Wow! Kids of all ages loved our toenail fairies and we were blown away by the colorful, creative, unlimited whimsy of all the amazing fairies we met. Heck, my mom and a tree fairy even shared a special moment.
Pungently produced by picklefeather press, a new frank imprint, the Toe Jam and The Toenail Fairies book will be out in early '08. But don't wait 'til then. Check out the story and bag some toenails now! - John
