I am excited to announce my second book submission has been accepted by Schiffer Publishing! The book submission was given the green light a little while ago, but I received the official contracts in the mail yesterday and wanted to share the news.
You may ask, “What’s next in the process?”
In order for the submission to be accepted, we only needed one full color illustration along with a storyboard of the pages. Now that we have been awarded the contract, Angie is going to paint the other 30 pages in the next few months. It is a big undertaking, but she is up for the task.
I can’t give too many details about the story—no spoiler alerts here—just know it is a story near and dear to my heart. This story touches on another childhood issue and one I faced myself. I think it is a story every child and parent will be able to relate to. I will keep you updated on our progress as I navigate the second book.
Oh, and if you’re wondering, the puppy’s name is Amelia and she is the mascot for the SchifferKids line of books.
