Boy I feel like it's been forever since I posted anything. Yeah I know I've goofed of
from time to time, but that was all he he he! Thanks to each and everyone of you who came by
and left encouraging words and comments. Let me tell you they helped me get
through a lot of rough days! Words are so very powerful and I appreciate your
words from the bottom of my heart. Well, here is one of the projects that
I have been working hard at. "Let Freedom Sing" this book is one of
the first children's picture books I've ever done. Yes the very first.
"Ruby and the Booker Boys is for older children and not considered
a picture book. The book is written by myslef and Harriet Ziefert.
The Book is about the civil rights movement
and the people who brought change by letting their light shine.
As a matter of fact it was written to a tune that most of us learned
in Sunday called, "This Little Light of Mine" It
takes us right up to today with Mr. Obama as President of the United States.
This book is published under Blueapplebooks.com
It is the brain child of Harriet Ziefert. Harriet is brilliant!!!! The staff
over at Blue Apple Books is amazing! Each person is so talented and helpful.
I just didn't illustrated a picture book, I got to see how the whole thing
comes together. It's a lot of work that goes into creating great pictures
books for children. There are lots of people behind the scenes that work
to put the whole thing together. I was blessed to have the chance to
sit with these amazingly talented and gifted people for almost 3 months.
I learned so much from all of them. I'm working on my second book now
to be released in the winter. I will share pictures and updates with
everyone as we go along. To everyone of you,
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
