Another book being published!

Hello!  Just thought I would check in briefly and let you guys know what is going on in my life.  First of all, I received the fabulous news that 4RV Publishing is interested in publishing a book I wrote entitled “Pumpkin Pie Birthday Cake”, which was inspired by my foster son.  It will be my second published picture book, so it really excites me.  Now I don’t have to worry about being a one hit wonder!  I was very happy that 4RV liked the book because I have reviewed several books they produce and found the quality of the writing and the illustrations to be excellent.

As for my first picture book, I did receive a couple character sketches so I will share one here of the main character, who is a cat named Icky.

The book will be entitled “Ode to Icky”.  Again, it was inspired by someone I love…a big, fat cat of ours named Einstein who seems to have lost his ability to effectively clean himself due to his girth.  I can’t wait to hold both of my upcoming books in my hands!  Of course, for all my friends, family and fans out there, I will offer you the opportunity to buy signed copies from me if you so desire after the books are published.

The next 5 days I will be at family camp, so I may have time to post and I may not.  I am hoping to fit in a review or two, but sometimes the family camp schedule can be packed, so we will have to see!  Either way, I hope you will keep visiting my blog!  I love to get feedback, so feel free to chime in at any time!
