Release date for the Brave Bamboo


I’ve loved working on this project! But to be honest, I’ve gone through a range of emotions┬ábecause while this is my second book, there is still so much I don’t know; so much I’m learning about the writing process, the publishing process, marketing, and business, too.

February 22, 2017

Well, all that aside, my second baby is coming into the world on February 22, 2017, coinciding with Walk Your Dog Day. I thought that would be the perfect day to celebrate this timid little pup named Bamboo.
You’ll be able to pre-order the book on Amazon in the next few weeks!

We have a book cover!

Laura the illustrator has been coming up with fantastic cover ideas, and a few days ago we chose the one we like best. Just like the rest of the images in the book, the cover art is really cute! As the publishing date approaches, I’ll start posting pictures,┬ábut for now, here’s a teaser…
5This is just a glimpse at the rough drawing. The final will be cleaner and in color, of course! I’m so anxious to hold this book in my hands and realize the random idea I had years ago is now an actual physical product. It’s probably the closest I’ll get to how a mom feels after she has a baby. However, I will not be burping my book over my shoulder, that’s just weird!

Hope you have a great week!
