JEMTOYs at Gibbs Library

Gibbs Library in Washington, Maine has some of my Mythical Maine JEMTOYs on display to support the launch of my book, Snotgrass¬†which contains all kinds of strange critters that creep through the muck and mire of Maine. If you’re in the area, take a photo in front of the display case and tag me – I’ll click LIKE on it!!! Wa-Hoooo!

Philly Lou Bird is upset that he’s part of my book, Snotgrass. Don’t worry, I intend to donate half the profits to protect the endangered mythical creatures here in Maine. Be sure and do your part, download the Kindle version of Snotgrass today, and have a laugh or two. Here’s a preview from the book, a chapter called Side Hill Gouger.

Weird Critters of Washington Pond

Swamp Bogger, Philly Lou Bird, Yupapotamus in Maine

My family and I drove across country from California to Maine, and now Swamp Bogger, Philly Lou Bird, and Yupapotamus are home at Washington Pond, Maine. This is the lake I grew up on, listening to my grandfather’s old logging tales about these weird critters. Many of the old timers here know stories about these critters, and it’s fun to see the enthusiasm they have in telling them. We’re staying at my Dad’s house, looking for a home of our own somewhere in the area. I’ll keep you posted. Jay~

JEMTOYs at FOE

Kaijina the Bug Girl

Because I am traveling again this summer FOE Store & Gallery will be handling my handmade resin toys. I shipped a giant box of over a years worth of art work to Jim at FOE. I sent a ton of stuff, like the very popular 5 inch Kaijina the Bug Girl toys in various colorways. Also at FOE are my 5 inch “Big G.E.A.C.” toys named Sgt. Wilbur because everyone needs a big pig with a gun.

I am moving from California back to Maine to work further on my Mythological Maine series called Yupapotamus Pond. FOE has a couple play sets, and one is glow in the dark! Each set has a Yupapotamus, Swamp Bogger, and a Philly Lou Bird that are characters from old logging stories my grandfather used to tell me as a child growing up in Maine. The characters are old Americana from the North East, and many folk of the older generation know the tales of these and other strange critters that go bump in the night. My move to Maine is to work further on my research on these old stories. This project means a lot to me, and is very near and dear to my heart. For some reason it is so important to me to keep these stories alive, and I need to be back in Maine to do it proper justice. Each play set also has a Swamp Bogger necklace and comics!

Also in that mighty JEMTOY box are GID Gompers, new G.E.A.C.s, some way cool two toned opaque/clear Stompin’ Gompers, and a bunch of other surprises. It will take them a while to photograph and get all of it up on their web site, so if you are interested in purchasing any of these items contact the folk at FOE and swing a deal or click here to see what JEMTOYs are available at the ShopFOE.com site. Even better, if you are in the Northampton, Massachusetts area drop by and have a look first hand. Ask Jim or Nicole if you can see the JEMTOY box before the best stuff is gone.

I have a feeling it’s gonna be a great summer.

Thanks again for your interest and support, J.E.Moores.
