I recently wrote two children’s books. Here are sample illustrations, and excerpts of the text for the first one. One is scheduled for release via Amazon.com and others late in August and the other two months later. I’m working with an illustrator, interior layout and cover designer, and self-publishing consultant, all of whom have been wonderful to work with. I’m learning a lot and loving nearly every minute of it. I plan to work with an editor next week.
An excerpt from “Clyde and I” is at the end of this post.
The second book is about my carved redwood bear and my grandson Thomas (an older version of him because he is only 14 months old).
Both books will both be full-color.
I love forward to writing books about my other grandchildren too!
Other project updates:
For a variety of reasons, I’ve put the two children’s song projects on hold.
In the meantime, I’m writing two more children’s stories while I’m working on bringing to life the first two books.
An excerpt from “Clyde and I”:
Clyde and I
I went to say “hi” to new neighbors next door
And saw something I’d never seen before
When I say what I saw please don’t laugh
Because what I saw was a green giraffe!
He was standing on his head out in the rain
And the poor wet guy seemed in a lot of pain
His body swayed way up high
And his feet were stuck straight up in the sky!
I just stood there not knowing what to do
As he ate a banana that was bright blue!
