Off In The Mail
Some of you know that I wrote a children's book a few years back, detailing some memory/bed-time imagination while I was in Switzerland. I have had this on a list of things to do for a long period of time. I found a local, independent publisher that seemed like a good fit for my book. I sent off a packet last wk which included a manuscript and 3 sample illustrations for my book: An Old Hag's Summer Night. At this point, I am just excited to get it in the mail - it seems it took far too long to do this. As is par the course, I'm not expecting immediate groveling over my book. In most cases, writer/illustrators have to solicit many publishing houses before an acceptance. We'll see what turns up. At any rate, I thought I'd share the first page illustration of my book and let you get a feel for it. Guaranteed: I will be letting EVERYBODY know if/when this is accepted.
