A Sketch of a Possible Cover Idea


My Illustrator Josh McGill is creating a cover illustration for my next children’s book, ebook, and audiobook, all titled The Ducks Who Flew Every Which Way. I thought you’d enjoy a peek at a concept sketch for it.

With love,

      I know what you mean. Mae has it the worst. When she flies her flight path is like being on a roller coaster she can’t she. She never knows what direction or height she’s about to fly next (kind of like my storytelling.)
