THE TALL TALE OF PAUL BUNYAN Wins the 2010 Moonbeam Golden Award!!

THE TALL TALE OF PAUL BUNYAN has won the 2010 Moonbeam Golden Award for Comics and Graphic Novels!!

I can hardly believe it. After a zillion various award nominations I finally actually win one of the dang things. Amazing. Wednesdays, for some weird reason, are always nice to me.

Many thanks to artist Aaron Blecha, editor Donald Lemke, designer Bob Lentz, editorial director Michael Dahl, and Stone Arch Books for making this book a real winner.

Also, I need to mention that my soon-to-be eighty-six year old father loves this book (in fact, it's the only one of my books I'm certain he has read). He'll be very happy to hear this news from me, later today.

Lastly--thanks Paul and Babe! Since I was six years old, you've both always been there for me.

I'm Alive and Well at NYC Con...Sort of

Special thanks to my old friend, and BELA LUGOSI's TALES FROM THE GRAVE collaborator, Terry Beatty for his thoughtfulness in snapping this photo of some of my children's books at last weekend's New York City Comic Book Convention.

Good to know even though I couldn't attend this year, I was still there in spirit.

Last Friday while attending the book-signing at the MEMO conference, I learned to my great surprise that my THE TALL TALE OF PAUL BUNYAN is a finalist for the 2010 Moonbeam Children's Book Award!

Of all my children's books, now numbering over twenty volumes, my Paul Bunyan story is my favorite. Special thanks to artist Aaron Blecha, editor Donald Lemke, designer Bob Lentz, editorial director Michael Dahl, and Stone Arch Books for their help in making this such a beautiful book.

Sure hope we win!
