Octavio & the Lotus page 1 Ernest Samuel Llime

Excerpts from Octavio & The Lotus - The Addendum

The book was published over the Christmas season and it did fairly well. Dougie's mom had some pretty good connections. Royalties started coming in so Dougie and Petunia opened savings accounts. His mom wanted them to have a book signing session as well as present copies of the book to all of their teachers, but they decided to wait until spring break. It didn't quite work out like that. There was a little bookstore in town and somehow the owner got word of the book and she featured it in her window. It only took a couple of days before word reached Mr. Andrews, their principal, and he called the two of them into his office on a Friday morning.

 "I read your book," he started, "it is actually very good."

 "My mom helped with editing," replied Dougie.

 "Still, it is the two of you who wrote it - very imaginative and well researched. There was however one little problem that she may have overlooked. Somewhere in the chapter about Doodletown, there was talk about an Appendix - I didn't see one."

 "Actually, that is my fault," replied Dougie, "I wanted to explain everything, but I didn't quite understand it all. So I convinced Petunia to try and experience all of those things. I was also not strong enough to accomplish some of those tasks. So we postponed the Appendix. We will spend a part of this coming summer vacation trying to live in the wilderness of our parents' plots. We will document it all and hopefully, by the end of the vacation we will have a good Addendum that will go with the book and will also be available for free to anyone who had previously purchased our book."
