Hello Everyone,

To help celebrate the March 3rd publication of our new book, Special Delivery, Matthew Cordell and I are teaming up to give away 5 original pieces of art. It’s true! For a quick introduction to how this will work just press play on the video below.

Ten bucks and an email—it’s as easy as that!

Q: But wait, how big is the art? 

A: Thanks for asking. Each work of art is 5.5 in. x 8.5 in, much bigger than a real stamp.

Q: Art media?

A: Pen, ink, and watercolor.

Q: Do I need to show you a receipt for my donation?

A: Nope, we are working on the honor system here. If you tell us that you’ve donated $1000, then we will take your word for it and drop your name into the hat 100 times.

Q: Can I really choose my own non-profit?

A: Absolutely! If you have a favorite local, national, or global children’s literacy non-profit then go for it We would love to hear about all the great organizations out there that people are supporting.

Q: When does the raffle close?

A: Anyone sending an email prior to midnight, March 30, will be eligible to win.

Q: If I win, do I get to pick which stamp I get?

A: Yes, sort of. If you win we will ask your preference. The first name drawn will be given first choice. Then the second name, etc., etc.

Q: Is that you playing the guitar so badly in the video?

A: Yup, that’s me!

Q: I’m still confused. May I ask a question?

A: Of course! Send your question to: specialdeliverythebook@gmail.com

Now, for a closer look at Matthew Cordell’s beautiful artwork, and the corresponding stamps upon which they were based…

Fun fact: This is my favorite stamp in my whole collection. The back cover of my book, Hello, My Name Is Ruby, is based on this stamp.






Good luck everyone! And please keep an eye out for Special Delivery, on shelves March 3rd…
