My Picture Book

Can someone pinch me, please!!

Received word from my illustrator for my first picture book titled The Pea in Peanut Butter and the first sketches of the illustrations will hopefully be sent to me this week. I'm so excited to see them. I don't ever want this bubble I'm living in to burst! From what I've seen of her previous work, she is really talented.

I have a writer friend, Kelly, who is also getting her first picture book May The Best Dog Win, published by FutureWord Publishing and she is more then pleased with her illustrations. In the near future, I will be doing an interview with her about that book. Stay tuned.

Also, stay tuned for an interview I will be having with Courtney Rene on her new book Shadow Dancer for teens and YA. We will be giving away a free book so look for details soon.
