Spoke too soon. The book is now available a week ahead of schedule. The official site Aardvark Tongue.com is fully operational and ready for your perusing and purchasing needs. Head on over and checkout some of the pages, download a few clips from the audio book (read by Bob himself) and read up on what the book is all about. There is also a nifty subscription feature that sends samples of the book to your inbox every week, which I would recommend for anyone not to sure if a book about decadent household items made out of endangered species is right for them.
I’m excited for the launch, as this is really the first time I’m officially published as an illustrator. Technically I have a few illustrations published in textbooks before on a freelance job back in college, but never have I been the official illustrator (with full credit) before. So I’m thrilled to see my scribbling in print. This has been a long time coming, and I’m glad that Bob was able to finally get all the loose ends wrapped up and get this thing published.
So please head on over to the site and see what we’ve put together, and let me know what you think. Remember if you pick up a copy, you will not only be helping out the animals of the world (a portion of all profits goes towards the World Wildlife Fund), but you will also help Bob put a dent in the printing costs on this self-published venture.
