PUG PALS: TWO'S A CROWD COVER REVEAL!!!

I'm so excited to share the cover for my first book, PUG PALS: TWO'S A CROWD, that will be published by Scholastic in Spring 2018.

As you may recall, almost a year ago I posted my book deal announcement here. The series has been renamed from Pugling Rivalry, but the story has remained the same. Part of why I haven't been posting as much on my blog is that I've been super busy putting together the story and illustrations for my book. There was a steep learning curve in this process. Illustrating for a chapter book is very different from illustrating for a blog or social media posts. And I also was learning how to use Photoshop and a Cintiq, as all of the final illustrations were done digitally.

So you can imagine how rewarding it feels to finally see it all coming together at long last. And without further ado, the cover!



Tada!!!!

For those of you who have followed me for a while, you'll know how true to life this cover is. Well, at least it was pre-Monkey (my new and third pug mix puppyI'll post more on that soon). 

So what exactly is PUG PALS: TWO'S A CROWD about? Well, I'm glad you asked. Here's the blurb:
Two pugs. One beloved toy bunny. What could go wrong?

Sunny's new little sister, Rosy, is getting her paws into everything. When Rosy takes Sunny's favorite toy, Mr. Bunny, and loses him, Sunny is barking mad.

But when Rosy sets off on her own to find and rescue Mr. Bunny, Sunny starts to worry. Rosy's never been outside by herself before. Sunny will have to gather all the canine courage she has and go after thembefore Rosy and Mr. Bunny are both lost fur-ever!

And don't you worry. There's going to be plenty of familiar Bah Humpug goodies like drumstick attacks, pug yoga, and even ninja pugs.

PUG PALS: TWO'S A CROWD goes on sale January 30, 2018.  Mark your calendars!  It will be followed by a second book in the series that will be published later in the year. 

And as a thank you to my followers who have liked, commented, and supported me, Sunny, and Rosy (and now Monkey!again, more on that later), I'd like to do a GIVEAWAY!!!!

Giveaway Details

I'll be giving away five signed copies of galleys of the book. For those who don't know (as I didn't either up until this book-making process), galleys are bound editions of the book that are used to sell the book and publicize it before publication date. The galleys for my book contain mostly unfinished art, as I'm still in the process of finalizing a lot of it. I'm going to have to limit the giveaway to the United States as I'll be the one doing the mailings (sorry!).

To enter, please post a comment below by 5pm ET on Friday, June 2, 2017, and I'll pick five commenters randomly (I'll either assign numbers to each comment and then use a random number selector or I'll put names in a hat and have Sunny and Rosy pick them). If you win, I'll contact you and ask that you privately email me your mailing address. Good luck!

And, in case you were wondering, yes Sunny is still very much attached to her Mr. Bunny. This is a sixth or seventh generation Mr. Bunny, recently bought.
And this is an older Mr. Bunny, who's seen better days.
I'll even throw in a pug drumstick for your viewing pleasure.
Sadly, now Sunny has to share Mr. Bunny not only with Rosy, but also with Monkey! (Again, I'll tell you more about Monkey soon.)
PUG PALS!!!!!!

  1. Wow! So thrilled about this — and of course, already looking forward to the sequel, starring the irrepressible Monkey!

  2. I love seeing your posts on Facebook and reading your blog. I have two girl pugs of my own, so the sibling rivalry is definitely something that I can relate to, although my girls are littermates, so we didn't have the adjustment issues like you did with Sunny. Monkey is adorable, too, and I hope she makes her way into future books that you do!

  4. Great cover!! I can't wait to change one pug into a grumble--hope Arya's okay with that :D Will pre-order it as the date gets closer (pre-orders are a great way to show publishers that a book is wanted, if anyone's wondering: ).

  5. Such a great cover!! I'm sure Sun Buns, Rosey, and Monkey are very proud of their momma. Congratulations!!!!! Can't wait to read it.

  19. Your art and stories perfectly describe my 12 year pug, Pickles. I have been enjoying the tales about your grumble for years, because I can really relate. Can't wait to see this book and the next one, Three's a Grumble, that will include that cutie, Monkey. I also love getting that cute puppy fix by seeing all the Monkey posts on Facebook. Thank you.

  22. SO excited to see this! I'll definitely be buying copies for my little cousins (because I've made them pug crazy) when the book is released. If I won the galley, I'd actually mail it on to my sister who lives in Sydney. She misses my family's pug, Henry, and, in addition to sending her snaps of Henry, we always laugh about Sunny and Rosy (and now Monkey!) whenever we talk. I'd know she'd love it! Congrats again!!!

We look forward to reading it to our baby girl with all the pug illustrations and comparing them to her brothers. Kudos to you for learning how to design on these computer applications and staying true to your hand-drawn sketches!

  142. How exciting to be publishing your first Pug book! And then your second! I'll be buying copies for gifts and of course myself. Anxious to hear about your new addition (I've had 3 senior black pugs). Congratulations!

  145. Oh man, we have a 6 y/o (Jeff) and will soon be adding a puppy to the mix. I think Jeff will relate to Sunny!

  146. Congrats on the grumble, on Monkey! Liam & Jack'son remind me of my fighting brothers when I was young but in Chicago last month I saw how bonded they really were in a strange place, among a throng of new people and other pugs. Your writing sounds fun, I did not know. I want a grumble too, preferably a girl because I'm outnumbered, or 'my third son'. Hopefully that will happen soon though I'm kind of over the potty training stage, my boyz are 12 and 21 months old, 'Irish twins'. I'm so happy for you!

  147. I am so excited about this book! Seeing the stories about Sunny and Rosie (now with added bonus Monkey!) brighten even the darkest of days. I am so happy to are able to share your stories with the world. Can't wait to read this to my niece. Good luck with the launch (you won't need it, these will sell themselves). It's going to be a long wait for your fans! Hurry up January!!!! 😍

  149. For years I have arrived at work and would anticipate an email from Bahhumpug waiting to be opened. What a perfect way to start the day reading of the antics of Sunny and Rosie. The recent drought has been sustained by the thought of the book that is coming. My first pug came into my life at 4 years of age. You intimately understand the pug and bring joy to my life. It is lovely to put a name to the talent. Thankyou Flora. I would treasure a signed copy of your book. Deirdre

  160. Plush toys can help you whenever your child has tantrums because he is too familiar with the toy and he feels secured with it. pug stuffed animal
