Ladies and gentlemen, and children of all ages! May I please draw your attention to the center ring! (Spoken, of course, in the booming voice of the circus ringleaders of yesteryear...)
Anyway, enough with the fanfare and on to the good bits: Barnabas and Wilfred have some wonderful news. In fact, they've been holding on to this news for the past week. They've been biting their fingernails, sitting on their hands, hemming and hawing, pursing their lips shut, and shifting from foot to foot (not all at the same time, of course; that would be impossible. Perhaps two or three at once, but no more than that.)
All of that is beside the point, though. The point is that they have been incredibly excited, and have been bursting to share their news with you, with your friends, with your friends' friends....heck, they'd tell the Queen herself if they could catch a moment of her attention!
What they've been so very excited about is this: they've found a publisher, a forever home if you will, with Crooked Cat Books. They've got some work to do, still (wouldn't want them showing up for such an important event with any wrinkles in their trousers or their hats askew, would we?) so they will most likely not be ready to meet the public until October or November of this year. Waiting is so very difficult, but they shall do their best to be patient. As shall I. Sigh.
And of course Barnabas and Wilfred will remain hard at work on their next case (for a good detective must always carry on, no matter how very excited he might be!) whilst they make themselves presentable for their Fall debut.
Tot ziens for now!
