After all the edits, rewrites and struggles involved in writing, it is so rewarding to watch an illustrator bring your characters to life. You might even call it the "fun part" of writing a children's picture book. The illustrator that I am working with, in addition to being extremely talented, is also a wonderful lady and we collaborate well. Here is the sketch we have landed on of Molly & Polly, the two main characters of my first picture book, The Cherry on Top -- coming this Fall! Let me know if you want me to keep the sneak peeks coming,
or what other parts of my self-publishing journey you would like to hear about!
