I'm Getting PUBLISHED!
I've waited so long to say this - and now I finally can - one of my stories is going to be published! WOOHOO!! My debut picture book, A Way With Words, will come out early 2022 with Australia's Ethicool Publishing. The release is set for February in Australia, but it will most likely be March here in the States.
Although I did not win Ethicool's author contest, the editors liked my writing style so much they asked to see more - and POOF! - they loved my lyrical story about a child who prefers to communicate in ways other than speaking!
On top of the awesomeness of signing my very first publishing contract, Ethicool also decided to run an illustration contest to find the perfect illustrator for my story. SO MANY talented illustrators sent in submissions, and the top five entries will be posted on Ethicool's website starting September 20th for public voting! Stop by and cast your vote - but, honestly, I would be honored to work with any of these amazing artists.
Thank you all for your continued support!
I DID IT!!
