Overview

I don't mean in any way to debunk or defame the story of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. But just for a moment, imagine the possibility, that maybe it was a little different than we've been told. In my rendition of the story you will find magic, truths, brotherly love, and the answer to the question that children of all ages have asked since the myth began:

" How do reindeer fly? "

My story consist of two young boys. The first boy is: 8-year-old Nathan, he is a boy that is full of excitement and joy and likes to have fun, a boy who loves his grandfather and is enthralled by the wonderful story his grandfather tells one Thanksgiving night.

The second is Bobby, a character in Grandfather’s story, who partakes on an exciting adventure with his truck driving uncle; an adventure that takes him first to a secret warehouse where his uncle picks up a most unusual load and then to the North Pole, where Bobby meets Santa and his elves and makes an incredible discovery in the barn where the reindeer sleep.

TEASE:

Eight year old Nathan awakes Thanksgiving Day morning quite excited about his grandfather coming to dinner.

At bedtime Nathans grandfather reads him a story from a book about a young boys adventure with his Uncle on a trip to the North Pole where he meets Santa Clause and discovers what make reindeer fly and other secrets.

After his grandfather leaves the room Nathan accidentally knocks the book onto the floor and discovers that the book his grandfather had just read from is filled with blank pages.


To whom it may concern:

I am trying to introducing quite possibly the most radical and conceptually different way of marking and publishing a book unlike anything that has ever been done. Coming from a complete unknown author it will be quite a challenge. (When I wish upon a star) I wish to find an agent and or publisher that is looking for something new and exciting and would pick up my story and marketing strategy and run with it.

This is the first of two books in English (Spanish version coming soon) with the same exact title. This book primary function is to be read by individuals of any age for their own enjoyment and or read it to a child and or children.

The second is not a different version but a whole new radically different concept.

The second books cover also in English (Spanish version coming soon) with the same title contains nothing but blank pages; its primary function is to be found by the child and or children. Should you have read the first version, you will understand how the blank version is marketable. The first version (including the text) is a stand alone item, it is an excellent tale. The second version (blank) needs the first to work. And obviously does not work in the ebook format; That is why it is not listed here.

I am also looking for an illustrator; obviously an illustrated version would stand on its own merit. Obviously both the text with or without the blank version as well as the illustrated version are extremely time sensitive. The end product would have to hit the shelves running on or before Thanks Giving Day.

Meet the Author

William Guy Thilgen Jr. (Billl) is a 64 year young retired former native of St. Paul, Minnesota U.S.A. commonly known as the Twin Cities. Now living in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico. William is the middle child of seven, with three older half- sisters, two younger brothers and a baby sister.

Prior to his retirement, he followed in his grandfather's footsteps as a professional truck driver. A career that allowed him to see parts of the country, taste various foods and to partake in a variety of adventures whenever he would happen across them. During those years he considered himself to be a professional tourist.

As an interstate truck driver he spent a lot of time driving from here to there and back again. He had many long hours with nothing to do but gaze out the windshield and watch the world go by. Some drivers, not all, would occupy their time by listening to the conventional AM/FM radio or their audio tape machines (CD players had not yet been invented). Some, not all, would spend time talking on the citizen band radio, aka CB. William was one of those drivers.

William attributes his imagination and story-telling ability to the fact that, like most children during his youth, he grew up in a large family in a small house with no room to play indoors. Most children of that era grew up playing outdoors. He and his friends would spend hours and hours outside finding things to do, and on occasion making up our own adventures.

As he aged he came to view life as series of adventures. It was on one such adventure in the winter of 1994.

He met Patte!
