And another title

This book arrived on my doorstep last week, the third of four illustrated children's books published within a year's time.

A new title

A new illustrated book is at the publisher's right now, and ought to be in print this summer. It's a comforting story about a girl who has a chance to reconnect with her memories of her father. – lec

At work

My son shot this photo for a promotion featuring WendyLynn's illustrators. The book I'm working on in this small studio should reach its conclusion in the coming month. Four illustrated children's books were produced here in the past year, and all four should be in print by summer. I'm grateful to the authors who believed in their project enough to commission the illustrations and to Wendy Mays, who helped each partnership get off the ground. And I'm especially thankful for my family, who has encouraged me at every step. – lec

Lucy is making her rounds

"Lucy the Baby Deer" has been released and is getting into the hands of young readers. The author, Robert Maunus, is encouraged with the initial response, and we hope to expand its reach into more bookstores, libraries and children's bookshelves soon with a second printing.
