Racerdogs, the TV show



I got some very exciting news this week. A few years ago the multi-media rights of my book Racerdogs were optioned. I thought nothing would ever come of it, I was wrong. As it has turned out Racerdogs will be a TV show!!! It is scheduled to be on Saturday morning this fall. I'll share details as they happen. I'm just now being brought into the process.

I just found your blog, wow! congrads you are living my dream! Just curious did you option with rights to all merchandise made with your characters? I am in the field of licensing and started to branch into children's books and wondered if illustrators in this field are aware of how much money is made in licensing their designs.

Anyway love that you crossed over like William Joyce and Dan Yaccarino! congrads!

HEY - CONGRATULATIONS! That's exciting stuff! Love your art and it would be perfect to animate!

Thanks Ellen,
I know the big bucks is with the merchandise. But so does everyone else. In the case with Racerdogs, I won't get a part of that pot because it will be product based on the TV show and not on my book. I still do well if the show does well. I know that I gave up a measure of control, but it's not my money funding the project either.

Hi Bob,

ahh I wonder how others do it? I myself am in the licensing world and I am starting to cross over to the children's book world. I would love to be like William Joyce where the two crossover. To me this makes no sense since you are the creator of the whole idea. To me its a no brainer and do not see why they would not give you royalties. I mean w/o your story they have nothing and they can afford a 2-3% payout!

well congrads anyway at least you will have the major recognition! So the next time you can say
" pay up!!" he he.

by the way are you going to SCBWI? I am heading to NYC on the 7th for it, I wanted to see what its all about and to say hello to a fellow Pratt grad Robert Sabuda!

Ellen
