After three weeks of tissues, hot tea, and cough medicine, I am finally able to sit upright and breathe through both nostrils.

It’s the little things, folks.

I knew I was definitely on the mend when yesterday I started pulling out half-finished novels and mapping them in Scrivener.

Novels

I haven’t talked about my novel writing in a while.  It isn’t because I’ve forgotten it or put it down forever.  The reason is better:  I started writing children’s books.

Children’s Books

Last year, I offhandedly mentioned wanting to write some children’s books. One of my yoga friends who is an illustrator mentioned that she wanted to draw some children’s books. It seemed to make sense that we should work together.

So, we did!  And, we do!

Thank you, Susan!

 

Our next book is coming out April 1st, and it has DINOSAURS!

Shoot her! –Jurassic Park

*Don’t worry:  No dinosaurs were harmed in the writing of An Eartha and Audi Story.

We have another Fernando book slated for this year as well, and perhaps a few more.

I want to work some longer form stuff into my calendar which is really what I am supposed to be doing right now. 

I’ll go do that now after I warm my tea.

Hey, thanks for reading.
