Spotlight on Tamara Botting…Author Bio

June 12, 2017-Hi Friends! As you’re well aware, Pandamonium Publishing House is thrilled to announce our newest author Tamara Botting, who has written the fabulous, middle-grade novel Unfrogged.

Unfrogged is slated for release on July 1st, and I know that you guys are going to love it! I’m also sure that you’d like to get to know Tamara a bit better too, so here is her official author biography.

Somewhere along the way, Tamara Botting heard the phrase, “If you can’t find the book you want to read, write it yourself.” Apparently, she couldn’t find a book about a princess who was a hot mess and a sarcastic frog, which is why you’ll soon be holding a copy of Unfrogged. When she’s not writing or reading books, Tamara is Auntie to a whack of nieces and nephews, a reporter for a community newspaper, and a vocal defender of the Oxford comma (because without it, the American flag would be red, white and blue (also known as periwinkle).

 

Hope That You’ll Join Us!

June 7, 2017- The week is marching on and before we know it, Saturday, June 10th will be here! That means that you can catch us at Concession Street Fest from 11 am to 7 pm at our booth with my book Panda the Very Bad Cat. You can even win 2 passes to FLYING SQUIRREL TRAMPOLINE PARK in Hamilton by entering a draw when you see us on Saturday. Looking forward to seeing some old friends and meeting some new ones. Oh, and one more thing, Panda the Very Bad Cat is going into the Pandamonium Publishing House vault on October 1, 2017! That means that you won’t be able to get it after that until I decide to re-release it! Get your copy this weekend if you haven’t already. A portion of the proceeds from each book sold is donated to animals in need. See you soon!
