Grumpy Ana and the Grouchy Monsters
I am in awe of Diana (author D Wallace Peach) at myths of the mirror. She took some time off over the summer and created and illustrated a children’s book. So impressed.
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.
