I have also been thinking about endorsements related to Bats and Bones; one has to think ahead, you know. Maybe the time is right for a Frannie Shoemaker line of outdoor clothing. Or is the market ready for a Frannie and Larry limited edition travel trailer? Move over, Eddie Bauer. Other possibilities include a Mickey Ferraro CD of campfire songs or a Nancy Terrell organizer. Of course, none of you will know Nancy unless you read The Blue Coyote.
And a semi-commercial note: I owe my two sisters for the wonderful cover of Bats and Bones. The cover art was done by Gretchen Musser, wayward landscape architect and arborist, and the cover design by Libby Shannon, who actually does make her living from her graphics business, Goosetown Graphics. Thank you, girls; this has erased a lot of debts.
