Too Many Months.....
I finally arrived at my website to update and tidy up. I cautiously, with great guilt and fearing, clicked on the blog page and alas, the blogger had been missing for some time!!
So today, after completing two nine hour days at the illustrating desk in a desperate race to meet a deadline, I find myself blogging, because, well, to be honest, I've gone a little cross-eyed and the paint brush started to waver a little. Back to the desk tomorrow.
If you ever walk into a house that is in chaos then you will know it is managed by a creative person. Which deadline should I complete first, the book contract or the bathroom?......Well, occasionally I delegate, though no one is too keen on the book contract so someone else has to do the bathroom.
So this blog will be brief. It is to introduce you to the new love in my life, my new book (drum roll please)..... Too Many Sheep. It is being released on May the 1st and will be available at a bookstore near you. Scholastic is the publisher and it is my first illustrated book completed graphically on the computer.
The picture above is possibly the end paper (it is yet to arrive from the publishers so it isn't definite until it is here in my hands) and if you managed to miss it, there is a trailer on the Book Trailer page I'd love you to check out.
No need for me to count sheep at the moment, this month is certain to wear me out enough to create perfect sleeping conditions. Two festivals, an overdue deadline, grant applications, a novel to complete and books to read. Notice I don't mention the house work... that's because we are all boxed up after a flood so it's unpacking time now the house has been repaired. Whew, March will fly by, no need to count sheep but I certainly let too many months go by without writing in my blog.
Happy reading, stay creative, visit me at a festival or two and see you at a book launch in May!
