Check out the book, Grumpy Ana and the Grouchy Monsters by D.Wallace Peach, as featured on the Myths of the Mirror blog.
My first children’s book is out in print. During my writing break over the summer, I tried my hand at illustration. It was hard and I learned a lot. I have a whole new respect for professional illustrators! You are amazing.
Thank you to all the authors who offered their feedback on the text (a simpler print and no italics). I realize it looks small in these images, but I did order proofs of the book (twice) and the actual size works fine.
I published this through Createspace, and it was a (grizzly) bear dealing with the images. Took me days and days and days to get the dpi right.
I was never going to subject myself to the agent-seeking process again, but I did, rather lamely, send queries to 7 agents in August. No takers, naturally, and I didn’t care a whit. This book was written for fun, illustrated for fun, and published for fun.
