Sorry that it's been a few days since I've blogged, but a ton of things have been going on. I am currently blogging from Williamsburg, Virginia, as I am on vacation. Let me just tell you, laying out in the sun today and getting some much needed fun in, was exactly what I needed. I got to drift on the Lazy River, eat ice cream, and even play ball in the pool! What a day! You know me, wherever the kids are, that's where you'll usually find me!
Some wonderful things have been going on with my illustrator, Amelia Grace, and we've been working on a few pictures for Book Four. She has been working on the chapter title picture of Maude. And I have to say, it took a while for my other illustrator to really get Maude the way I wanted to see her in the book. But not Amelia Grace. The first drawing she did of Maude was perfect! I was so excited! We also are getting started on the cover picture, and I can't wait to see the final project. So far, it looks amazing! Just what I was hoping for. Having such a talented illutrator really helps me as an author. I don't have to worry so much. Amelia handles it all. She even drew a necklace on Maude's title picture, and I didn't have to suggest it. She's reading the books, so she adds these little tidbits in without me even having to tell her to. Love it!
Well, we're off do do a ghost tour! I'll write more tomorrow, if I'm not scared to death, that is!! Agh!
