Hi, fellow SVS peeps~
My debut author/illustrator picture book, BLUE CAT, is coming Oct 1st from Boyds Mill Kane/Starberry Books.
I can't believe it is almost here. Target, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and some local bookshops will carry it.
If you happen to preorder and get a copy, reviews are always much appreciated. MEOW
My two spring 2020 books as an illustrator are finished and off to the printer. One with Page Street Kids (picture book) and the other Amicus Ink (Board Book).
I am trying on my marketing hat and it is making my head hurt, lol! Any tips would be much appreciated.
I am doing storytime at a local bookshop and will be signing and selling BLUE CAT at the EPA SCBWI chapters Fall Philly Fest in November. My publisher and one of their editors will be there too. Anyone here going to it?
I may also be doing an event for a local preschool. BLUE CAT is for kids ages 2-6.
I also have a request from my editor for some art samples for a PB manuscript of mine she recently read. Working on that this week, here is to hoping it makes it to her acquisitions team.
I have been watching @Will-Terry class with Brian Ajhar called Building Backgrounds and it is excellent! Check it out if you haven't had a chance yet. Plus his podcast with @Lee-White and @Jake-Parker is so awesome! I look forward to hearing it every time a new one drops. Fellas I would love to hear a podcast on podcasting, positives/negatives, struggles and successes with it. Also, how it is factoring into your marketing for the school and your own projects as well as lessons you learned along the way while producing it.
Anyone have any book news or projects I should know about, post them here! Let's fill the shelves with books by SVS creatives!!
Happy creating all!
