Epistle Extract (in which I find out I’m not very good at creating some things)

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

This month, I threw together the last of my pottery. Unlike the others in the class, I had very little experience and almost no natural ability. This was how things went:


middle grade kids chapter book about bullying and cyberbullying The second book in the FAB Club series about the friends who stand up to bullying

A more successful creative endeavour was the publication of the second in the FAB Club series. I’m more proud of this than anything else I’ve written. When my editor said it was the book she would have liked to have read as a child it made me feel I was producing something worthwhile (which is more than can be said for my pottery).

The chapter book is now on Amazon and if you are a member of that thing where you get to read free ebooks (Prime?) you can read FAB Club 2 – Friends Against Cyberbullying for free. If you do read it, I’d love it if you could leave a review. It’s the only way independent authors like me get their work seen.

This is an excerpt from my Illustrated Epistle, which goes out in the middle of the month. It is a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a cartoonist (specifically, mine). I’d love it if you signed up here:
