Very excited


Hi all! :) I have some happy news to share. I have been contacted to begin work on my first children's book to be published late next year. I am still waiting on a contract, but they have offered me the job as we work out the details. I am super excited. I don't want to share the specifics until it is totally official, but here's hoping I can do so soon. :) Here is one of the little characters that I submitted for consideration. The character will not be this little guy unfortunately. LOL My work would have halfway done, but they want an older character...which I will be happy to create. :)

Congrats! This is great news. Would you be working as both author and illustrator on this venture or is the story written already and needing illustrations?

that's incredible! If the other character is as cute as this one, then it'll be fantastic! Congrats!

Thanks guys. The final character is still cute, but not as cute. LOL
It is more realistic and for older kids. The text is already written so I will just be the illustrator. :)

I am super excited. :)
