Publishing


It's now February and I am still waiting on my book. I started this journey back in August 2013. Publishing a book takes patience. It takes many cooks in the kitchen to help publish a book. Even more for a Children's picture book.  You need to have a publisher willing to work with you, an editor, an illustrator you work well with, a marketing plan, you need to have connections. I'm sure there is more, but I'm still in the middle of how this all works.

My illustrator is wonderful. Because she is wonderful, her plate if full with projects. Around Christmas, there was no way she could even start working on the illustrations until she met he deadlines with other clients.  This past January I met up with her to take photos of the guitar I wanted to use, my son and husband for imaging proportions. Trying to draw a child without an image can be difficult.

Can you tell I'm excited? I keep reading my manuscript and imagine what my book will look like. I can't wait to start to see it all come together.  I know this is going to be such a fun book to show my friends and family. I have something proud I created!  I'm going to be a published Children's Author!  Part of me is hoping this is my path to career happiness.  I'm not looking to get rich, but I would love to write books, work from home and at least cover my current income with something I love to do.  If it doesn't happen, I still have a neat book to keep in the family. Win Win!
