If I must say so myself, this cover is amazing! Thank you to Laurie and Lisa for capturing the feel with their creative collaborative art and to Christopher Berge for designing the cover. One of my life long dreams is about to come true.
I always wanted to write a children's book and here it is, well, almost. I am a kid at heart and have a heart filled with stories. But not being too well versed in my native language, or any language for that matter, the thought of being a published author was a pipe-dream. Any of you who have been around my blogs for any length of time, know I struggle in the grammar department. But I have never let my weaknesses define me. I have learned that it isn't really how much you know. What helps, is to be humble enough to know I am not smart enough to know it all and to surround myself with people who know more than I do. I throw my ideas out there and then have wonderful help to clean up my mess.
I don't have a release date yet, but it will be soon. As you can see in the image above, this is just a proof. A few minor changes took place and I am just waiting to get the second proof back. This charming story of my Appalachian Trial hike is sure to peak the interest of children grades K-4. Also available for purchase is the companion book for teachers and parents that complements the story book with lessons, fun facts, journal space and more. Both will be available at the same time on Amazon, on my website, and future book signings - all to be announced soon.
