My Book Is Selling!!!!


My book is now available for sale at http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/new, the Blurb Bookstore!or http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/3967201 If you just get to the NEW BOOKS put in the title of mine it pops right up when I wrote ONE...

It's been a heck of a ride, with lots of twists and turns, ups and downs, frustrations and joys! Right now I am in another hemisphere flying so high on my own adrenaline I won't be found for weeks to come!

I only just this minute posted the book for sale and before I could say "lickety split" I had three sales reported to me! Color me jubilant. So pleased that others want to hold my art in hand.

Carlos was here last night, AGAIN, making last minute edits, to make the final product as spiffy and perfect as it could be. Thank you Carlos. This would not have happened with out you on so many levels!!!!

 I am so proud! I've had several proud moments in my life, but this one now, at this stage of the game, is such a HUGE THING for me! I am sure I'll come down to earth before too long.

Thank you all for being here for me along the way. For your encouragement, inspiration, support, warm words, and friendships. I love you all!!! I appreciate you all!!!! I send you all a gillion hugs~!

    1. Thank you KJ, writing a book was a childhood dream, but I never envisioned illustrating one! Now I've done both! It's unbelievably grand! I hope it's still real when I wake up tomorrow!
