I met my publisher in the parking lot the other day to receive from her the very first copy of my picture book. It was a little funny....like a hand off of something illegal...LOL! We were trying to find a time in our mutually busy schedules to meet so she could give me the book to look at and approve. Since we were like two ships passing in the night she finally suggested a strip mall parking lot that was half way for both of us. There, under the light of the street lamps (cuz it's now dark by 5pm!) she handed me the first soft cover version of the book to come from the printer. It was like being given gold! It felt so special to me. I was incredibly pleased with the quality of the reproduction of my artwork. The hardcover version of the book is still being printed so I will have to wait till tomorrow or Saturday to see that, but if it's anything like the soft cover, I will be overjoyed:)
So here is a sneak peak for you all! Hope to see you at the launch on Sunday!
