Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum in a Dish is now available on my publisher’s website!

BLURB:

A dish of bubble gum and learning to count has never been so much fun! Match colors and watch the bubble get bigger and bigger as you count higher and higher. Chomp, chomp, chew, chew. Look at the bubble you blew! Suggested age range for readers: 1-6

I’m just a little excited. *you couldn’t tell could you?* I am hitting TWO milestones with this book:
1) This is my debut as an illustrator. Some of you didn’t even know that I drew. But I do.  😀  Over the last few years, I’ve been honing my craft and studying others work. I’ve been learning my own voice for my illustrations too. I post tidbits and sneak peaks over on instagram.
2) This is my 10th picture book! *wow-oh-wow* I’m humbled. Truly, I am. I’ve been published by two small houses. (I will be adding a third soon!) They are so supportive and believe in my work and in me. Small publishing houses have some mighty big ❤ s!

I tried something new with this book. I put a call out for people who were interested in being on my LAUNCH TEAM. I had an amazing response… about 20 people.  *wow, again!* I sent them an ARC (Advance Reader’s Copy) pdf and my cover art. What they will do in return is give an honest review *I don’t expect 5 stars and bon-bons 😉 *, and a shout out on social media. Will this help? I dunno! So we shall see together, okay? I plan on writing a follow-up blog post on the results I see.

Thank you everyone for following me on my journey here. Here’s to more posts and books!

CHEERS!

Happy BOOKDAY to Me!

So while I was being a busy bee last month, my editor surprised me. Book #9 has been released.

Let’s see… I’ve got cake. The confetti is popping. And I see you are here.  😀  YAY!

Book #9

Is taken from my very backyard…

100 Pecans for Tabitha

“Tabitha loves to make pecan brittle and pecan pie. She is on the hunt to find 100 pecans to make her favorite treats. She looks in the bushes, knocks them out of the trees, and more. Along the way she learns facts about pecans and why her grandmother has the trees in her yard.
 Teaches counting by fives, two recipes and educational pecan info. Suggested age range for readers: 1-10.”

Would you like to see the cover?

??? You would???

*\0/* Yay! *\0/*

Well, I won’t keep you waiting. I mean that would make me such a horrible host and I wouldn’t want you to think ill of me.  😉   😉

So without further ado, here’s 100 Pecans for Tabitha:

100 Pecans for Tabitha

Isnt the cover darling?

Along with the story I’ve included some ‘nutty’ pecan facts and two recipes using pecans.

One other awesome thing, November is Georgia Pecan Month! So grab a book and help me celebrate!

Until next time,

Happy Writing!
