Update from Les Dabel

Hi all,

I had to wake up very early today so I could get my post in on the blog. It's been a while since I posted so I was really looking forward to it. We at Dabel Brothers have accomplished so much within the last 3 months, I mean LOTS and LOTS. Once we start putting out press releases of what we are doing and what we will be doing I think a lot of people in the industry will be shocked!!! I swear, we don't sleep. lol

I got to spend some quality time with Sean and Stacie Jordan and Matt Hansen at Book Expo America in Washing DC. I have to admit, I have some of the coolest people working with me. Hanging out with DB guys always feels like hanging out with Family. Over all Book Expo was a major success for us and I can't wait to do it again next year. We also got to spend some time with Sherrilyn kenyon/ kinley Mcgregor and her agent. sherrilyn is going to be lots of fun to work with I can tell.

Well I have to head out. Next weekend I will be at Wizard World Philly Booth 422, feel free to stop by. Currently I am listening to The Lord of the Rings sounds track. Later!

Post Office Day

Tuesdays are usually the day I use to go to the post office or Fed-Ex. So I will be heading there today after Ernst, David and I come from the YMCA. We've been going to the Y on Tuesday and Thursday mornings to play basketball. The 3 of us will pickup 2 guys to play on our team. For those of you that do not know much about basketball; you need at least 5 players per team. As of right now my brothers and I are on a 14 game winning streak. That's cause no one can stop David. We'll see if we can build on that, our goal is to win 25 games.

Also on my agenda today, I will be contacting Trent Zelazny, Trent is the son of Roger Zelazny. We'll be discussing an up and coming project that will be announced shortly. I want to also encourage you all to call your local comic retailer and reserve a few copies of Laurell K. Hamilton's "Anita Blake'. It's going to be a hot item.

Find your local comic book store: http://csls.diamondcomics.com/

I am out. Take care and God Bless.

Start of a new week!

Hi All,

Last week was a great week for us, we got a lot accomplished. This week, I feel is going to be an excellent week for us. One of my younger brothers; I won't say who yet is working on a novel and we have one of the top literary agents checking it out. If his novel is picked up he will have major bragging rights in school.

I was suppose to start work on my project last week but did not have enough time. I am going to work an illustrated Children’s book. It will be like “Red Wall” sort of but very different at the same time. My brother David will be helping me out on it and we have several different artists working on it as well. I think that's all but once again I feel really positive about this week so if anything major happens I will let you all know.

Currently I am listening to "The Lord of The Rings" Soundtrack. And by the way Magician_01 and Marshal_01 will be out in stores this Wednesday.

Take care and God Bless.
