Spring has Sprung

The Ink Penn Newsletter
April 2018
News from the Royal Abode
Lord Banjo and I took most of the winter off. To kick off Spring, the Royal Pooch combined a book signing with a bit of barhopping on Saint Simons Island. Many thanks to Island Dog for hosting us and to Brogen's for the cold beer and sweet potato fries we enjoyed on the top deck. It's your guess as to who had what.

His big news items?
  • He now has his own newspaper column for the Highlands Newspaper--DogSpeak: Reflections from Lord Banjo. Read his introductory column on my blog site, and sign up to receive new blogs via email.  
  • His coloring book comes out in early May. 
For those who've asked when Milord will write another book, today's answer is he's working on it and has plans to publish a sequel in 2019. From time to time his newfound celebrity status seems to go to his head, and it's difficult to get him to knuckle down to write book two.

Meanwhile, you can find The Ink Penn: Celebrating the Magic in the Everyday and Lord Banjo the Royal Pooch on Amazon.
