On Hiatus...

I realize I haven't posted in quite a while... but I became extremely ill toward the end of November, beginning of December and actually am now in California with family recovering. However, during this time, I managed to get my storyboards fleshed out to send to Charlesbridge and also land another contract with Downtown Bookworks, Inc. for another picture book. Unfortunately, my budget is not quite yet at a point where I could give up my day job, so I had to turn down another possible project with Greenleaf Book Company... a real pity. I was pretty heartbroken... I hope that I am able to work with them in the future though. Word of advice: do not use credit cards if you can go without.... When I was younger I managed to rake up a LOT of debt and now struggle with bills. But enough of that! Who wants to know?
Anyway!
More interesting stuff... I am enjoying my new projects though and recovering... so that is good!
The holiday passed and now it's a New Year!! I wish you all the best... and thank you so very much for reading my blog.
I hope to post images soon but I am not sure yet how much I am allowed to show here... ;)

I was wondering what happened ... it's become a daily ritual of mine to stop by your blog, so once it hit the 2 week mark and still no update ... well I knew something was wrong. Good Luck and get well soon =)
