The Trumpeter's New Clothes! Warning: Not for those who lean Orange

FOR YOU, my Dear Sillies ~
buy my book HERE


"I'm the most top best," he blurted.
"I never get hurted!"


Another gloat-show had been botched.
Nobody cared.
No-one watched.
                                      
                              An uplifting, hopeful finale ~ a more beautiful world.

E-book is underway. Sorry I don't have link yet.
Paperback is HERE.


A collage of your comments during our Sneak Peek game:

Birgit These 2 ladies are the cheerleaders for games and hope their handkerchief will be picked by Sir Cops a feel.
Geo. "Who are these women?" They are victims of the upsidedown icecream cone fashion fad.
"What do they want?" To be restored to their former seniority over frozen confections.

The Silver Fox These ladies may have been the first groupies in history. As for the third woman? Well... Everybody's a critic! Pat Hatt 
A bad voice got the 2nd one in a snit.
Debra She Who Seeks That instrument is the trumpet sticking out of Donald Trump's ass. Elephant's Child What do the women want? The same thing that women have ALWAYS wanted. And the woman with her hands over her ears is not listening to those who say that she can't/shouldn't have it.
Anthony J. Langford I'll say it's a wedding that the 2nd lady didnt want to happen..kind of like Harry's ex. Joanne The instrument is a flugelhorn (very Dr. Seussian) and the porcu-bear had to save the damsel from drowning in a chocolate fountain.
Sherry Ellis The instrument is a shlongophone. My father-in-law plays one.

Connie I don't know what the missing word is, but I've been giving all these clues some thought. Is your book based on the story of The Emperor's New Clothes, and is it starring Donald Trump? DING! DING! DING! CONNIE WINS FREE AUTOGRAPHED BOOK!!

   As I not-so-subtlety revealed in the last post, the creature is in fact a porcupine. The women are Rushing Brides, and the instrument is a trumpet. (Yeah, Debra!). From QUEENS arose a King. The rest, you can find out on your own.
   This Orange babe, my contribution to the resistance, and my fuel to energize us in creating a more beautiful world, is thanks to two grand men: illustrator Steve Ferchaud, and my all-around lifesaver, Bryan Pedas. I’m also indebted to bloggy buddies, Debra, Janie, Sue-Elephant’s Child, and Connie; and to my good friend, Lara – all of whom put their obligations aside to purchase my book, write reviews, post about this, and support me through the finish line (and now, new starting gate).


Love, Love, Love!
One rainbow tribe. (You'll see these words in Trumpeter.)

    1. Got some orangies in the bunch, huh? That's okay. They've been warned (First page says: "Warning: Not for those who lean Orange.") But we all need a laugh, and we all need to hope for a more beautiful world. This one provides both. Thank you kindly, Sage!

  3. Okay, I just ordered it! So, why haven't I received it yet?!? I'm an American, dammit, and I expect everything right away!

    Actually, what it is to be an American seems to be changing rapidly lately. Maybe you've noticed? Oh, wait, you wrote this book, so I'm assuming that you have noticed.

    I can't wait to share this book with my sister. She was so upset on the night of the 2016 election, she had an MS attack that put her in the hospital, then rehab, for a month! I swear, it's even in her medical record that Trump's election gave her the attack.

    1. Oh, Silver, I certainly believe that, and I'm so sorry. Yet I'm elated she'll see this book. Virtual hugs to both of you.
      Thank you kindly for ordering it!

    1. Yeah, that behemoth is a curious one (to put it nicely). At least the paperback is out there. I frankly don't like ebook anyway, but lots of folks do. It might be available some time, or it might not. Thanks for your constant support!

    1. Ha! I know. I refrained from an inappropriate response, but you and I could take that shlongophone on the trip of its lifetime.
      Thanks and love.

  8. Another triumph for you, Robyn! And thanks for introducing us all to the charming illustrations by Steve Ferchaud! He must be of Quebecois or French heritage, I think, because his surname means "Hot Iron" in French.

    1. Oh yeah, he told me that, though I'm not sure of his heritage. His talents are truly magical. He's a great person too.

  13. Can't wait to read it! I've been distracted for the last month or so, but now I am happy to know that I understand the porcupine.

    1. Yes. That porcupine - he had a hair-brained view of it all. Poor thing, got no respect.

    1. Thanks, hon. I'm still waiting for the eversion too. I understand. At this rate, I can't tell you if there'll be one; navigating this through Create Space has been more than marginally stressful.
