I thought the book was ready for a September launch, however, upon further critiques and edits, I will be tweaking the text a bit more.
Further, though I love the illustrations digitally done for this book, my illustrators will not always be available for future books. Therefore, after some soul searching, I am currently learning to paint with watercolors. I love it! So, the book may be further delayed as I will probably be using the current images and redoing them in “my” style (yet to be determined) which would continue on through the series.
Winter is probably a better goal for the launch, given these new developments.
Keep you posted.
