I haven’t posted in a while because there really hasn’t been much going on to share with you! I’ve received a number of communications from agents, all of which have been encouraging but unfortunately none have led to a partnership. It really doesn’t matter, though — receiving ANY response from an agent feels like a win. It has taken me a long time to build the courage to write, edit, and market these ideas, so every communication feels monumental and special.
Announcement time! After hours of reading and research, conversations with a few people in the field, and thinking critically about what I envision for this project’s future I’ve decided to take Crybaby off the table for the children’s picture book market.
Since Crybaby is very special to me and a story with a message that I feel needs to be heard, I am going to release an illustrated version free to the public on my website within the next couple of months. I will be illustrating it myself and am so looking forward to the challenge! I’ll be sure to keep you updated and even provide sneak peeks from time to time. =)
Thank you for following my progress! I hope you have all had a wonderful start to 2018.
