I was super excited to talk with my new illustrator today! I met her at a local event for authors and artists this past December, and I think we will work very well together! We have batted around ideas for another new book I am thinking of starting, but today, we talked about working on the fourth Wonky Witch book together! And let me tell you, this is going to be epic!
Amelia Grace has a knack for giving me exactly what I'm looking for, so I can't wait to see how she draws some of my new characters in Book 4. It is so important for an illustrator to also be a good listener, so they can really understand the characters and what the author has in mind. Amelia Grace really hears what I'm saying and works so hard to make the drawings exactly what I'm picturing in my WONKY head! Haha. We will meet this week to chat and start working! I also have to give her copies of Book 1, 2, and 3, so she can catch up on the story and see what my previous illustrator did with the characters. I have a feeling this is going to be the beginning of a wonderful new partnership!! I'll let you all know how our meeting goes, and keep checking back on the website for sneak peeks of her drawings!
