Trockle Is Upset!!!
Topic: Blog Tours

Trockle was all excited about talking with you guys yesterday and today and is very upset that Tripod made it impossible for most of you to ask him questions.  His Mama told him that he will have a chance to talk to you guys at the following tour stops:

October 7:

Janet @ Janet’s Book Nook

  October 8:

Kimberly @ All About Kimberly

  October 9:

Jen (Pantheistic Mom) @ My Terrene Reality

  October 10:

Elysabeth Eldering @ the Junior Geography Detective Squad

  October 11:

Ron Berry @ The Surreal Writer

  October 12:

Lynne Thompson @ La Vida Es Un Sueno

  October 13:Wrap-up by Holly Jahangiri and Jordan M. Vinyard


and you would still have the chance to enter this contest:


Grand Prize:

A customized Halloween short story featuring your child (or grandchild, niece, nephew, or friend) with Trockle - written by Holly Jahangiri and illustrated by Jordan Vinyard. 

Second Prize:

A $20 gift certificate to To enter, complete the following steps: (1) Purchase a copy of Trockle directly from 4RV Publishing ( ) between 12:00 AM October 5 and 11:59 PM October 13, and

The winners will be chosen randomly from all correctly completed entries (see "To enter" above) and winners will be notified by email. IMPORTANT NOTE: The Grand Prize winner will need to work directly with the author and illustrator to create a memorable gift for that special child. To include the child's likeness in the illustration, you will need to provide a digital photo upon notification that you have won. Every effort will be made to deliver the prize prior to Halloween, but circumstances beyond our control may prevent that and we do not guarantee that it will arrive by October 31


He still wanted everyone to have a chance to get pumpkin-carving stencils, coloring sheets and a chance at a book packed with Halloween recipes and crafts. He was so upset he was biting his green fingernails and they were becoming all worn down :-( Trockle's Mom talked to me and asked what I could do.


Anyone who emails me the rest of this month with the words "Trockle's Mom says" is the subject line, will receive the coloring sheets and pumpkin-carving stencils--and will also be entered into the drawing for the book of Halloween crafts and recipes!!  In addition, I'll include a booklet of pumpkin recipes! 


Please visit the above store stops and let Trockle cheer Trockle up!!

Awww, poor Trockle. Well, Tell Trockles mom to have people use Firefox as the browser and you can read the comments. Until then, just give him an extra Taco-choco.

It's a shame that people couldn't read and/or comment the past days.

Do we want to still have the Midnight Hours Tour stops on this blog site?

Oh, Ms. Joyce, I was just worried that people would come and think the porch light was off. You know that's against the rules - can't knock on the door during trick-or-treat if the porch light is off! But Mama says it's okay; if they can see the porch they'll knock. She and I are so glad you're letting folks email you - but what if they can't read THAT?

You know what? I think maybe those folks at Tripod never got to go trick-or-treating when they were little!

Joyce, I've enjoyed your Trockle stops. It's been fun, when technology worked. *laugh*
