I’m going to my first children’s book fair on 4/16. It’s in San Jose.
I’m also going to my first book readings on Tuesday. It is at a school in Moraga and will be in two sessions, Pre-K through 1st Grade, and 2nd and 3 grade, followed by a school-wide book sale.
My children’s book A Day in the Shade of a Tickletoe Tree is progressing well. The draft has been edited and storyboarded. The illustrator and I have discussed how he’ll depict each scene. I’ve reviewed and approved some initial sketches and he’s working on the full-color illustrations.
Tickletoe Tree Poetry is also coming along well. It’s an experimental mega-project and may end up being about 80 pages long. I may have to shorten it if the printers balk or if the cost to print it makes it cost-prohibitive to sell at a reasonable price. The draft has been edited and storyboarded. Now I need to determine which illustrations to use which best depict each page of text.
“A Day in the Shade of a Tickletoe Tree” has to be my favorite title of all time. 🙂
You sure know how to put a smile on an old author’s face! Thank you for your kind comment, Lori!
Hey Russ, I just finished Palpable Imaginings. Great book!! Left a review at Amazon for you guys.
Thank you x 3, Lori! I greatly appreciate your purchase, kind comments, and Amazon review. Since you enjoyed Palpable Imaginings I believe you’ll enjoy “Touched” a book of fiction stories and flash fiction written by me.
