    Really?

    I'd read your book, Rank.

    It was a kids book. A friend did the illustrations and another friend came up witht he story, and I was brought on to do the actual writing.

    It was self published and kind of a failure, but it was never meant to be a huge success, more of a "let's see of we can even pull this off" sort of thing.

    And we did, and it was cool.

    But that was a long time ago.

    Also, we did a book signing in a Seattle-area mall once.

    On the day that one of the Harry Potter books came out.

    We sold zero books that day, but there was a line of probably two thousand people that went past us and were all, "Well, that's really cool that you guys did this! Way to go. But, um... I'm not buying it, my kid would get super pissed of I didn't get him the Harry Potter book."

    But there are copies of it in all of the independent bookstores around here still, and most elementary school libraries around here and stuff.

    That's kinda cool Rank

    but did you plan it on the day that Harry Potter came out, or was it just a horrible, horrible coincidence?

    ahaha wow its still on amazon, available used for, like, three bucks.

    man, I still hate the title of it, though. Joe refused to change the name of the place the little girl goes to, even though I told him many, many times that it was terrible.

    A Most Excellent Book For Any Age, June 17, 2000
    Reviewer: Leon Fulginiti (U.S.A) - See all my reviews

    This book expands into the minds of your children, and even your self. It was brilliantly painted to appeal to any audience. A Friend writes "Joe and Nate are Amazing. Accomplishing so much at such a young age". All in All this book is a book of love for children. It is something that you will want to keep and pass on for generations to come..

    Hey Bob -- can you hook me up with a job in Hollywood, or what?

    I am not the lead actor in doctor who

    A few months back there was a bit of a joke that I looked like David Tennant. That, and I went to a fancy dress party as Doctor Who.

    Yeah I know, I was joking, and if I watched Dr. Who I might be able to have a more informed opinion on that costume.



    But still -- job in Hollywood? Anyone?

    A bunch of comments praising your art, Mr. Tremlin:
    The pictures in this book were phenomenal. Nathan Tremlin is a very talented artist. The use of bright vivd colors and distorted imagery really keeps the adult reader and child captivated. It will be very interesting to watch his career unfold. Mookie is a definite must have.

    that would be really nice if I were mr tremlin

    but I didn't do the art

    the art is really the only real good part of the book

    Did you ever hear the story about how this dude wrote a book, The Education of Little Tree, all about a young Native American boy and how he learns all his Native American tradition from his family, and doesn't belong in the white state schools, and it's very touching and was very popular with the liberal set, and was being sold in Native American gift shops and shit, until they found out that it was actually written by a rather prominent white supremacist? It's a pretty funny story.
