second promise kept

Voila!

There have been snafus. Mainly, the printer is behind schedule, which meant rescheduling my local book launch party to the weekend before Christmas. Because life is getting hectic, I have taken a page out of my bloggy pal Jen's book: I began Christmas shopping this week. I know! But we artists, we must suffer for our work, right?

Available December 12th--$12 a copy! (And you know I'll post every possible link to help you acquire a copy just as soon as I can.)

And here

is

the

(drumroll)

COVER!


In a nod to theme and cover art, we'll be noshing chocolate chip cookies (and other stuff) at the book launch party. (Local bloggy pals, send along your email info and I'll give you the specifics if you'd like to attend.)

Spill it, reader. What's got you grinning this weekend?

  7. I can't wait to order it! My little girl is due dec 14th so it may be a while before I get a chance to actually read it. Things are changing so much for me the past few weeks and will continue the next month. My 2 boys just quit napping...it has changed my whole day! And 4 more weeks till I add in a newborn, crazy! :)

    Enjoy your success!

  8. How cool to see your own name there on the cover!

    I've started Christmas shopping too, actually. I have to send a box of things out to family, so I need it all tidied and ready to go early. Well, that's my excuse anyway.

  11. I'm looking forward to next week's holiday weekend, but not so much this weekend, as I have an obligation that will pretty much make Sunday suck.

    I'm in the homestretch for Christmas shopping. I'm not kidding. Pete and I have to decide on the girls' Big Gifts and then I have some other odds and ends to round up and that's about it.

    So... what are the details on your book launch party?

    I'm looking forward to some art time this weekend, I get happy just typing those words now.

  15. Congrats on the book news! I'm always happy to see an illustration on a book cover, too. :)
    This weekend I'm looking forward to ushering for my son's play - it means I get to watch it again. It's his first time doing community theater.
