Talking sheep...

OK I've cracked it - the sheep were in a strop that they didn't get to speak. So... several days in the sunshine with pencil and paper, followed by a rainy day sat at the computer and, barring any last minute tweaks I have my story!!
Now to pencil in the last few illustrations and get the paints out.

Sheep trouble...

They say never work with children and animals; does that apply to fictional one as well I wonder?
I'm still working on my picture book, and for once the words are putting up more of a fight than the pictures. You wouldn't think that a book with so few words could cause so many problems. It's those pesky sheep again, maybe it's because the don't get to speak...

Another article published!

I have an article published in this month's Self Publishing magazine. This was an article which the editor approached me about in the autumn and asked me to write a piece about book signings and launches, for a special feature. It was interested to read about other authors approaches to book launches.

New outlet

I'm always on the lookout for new outlets and my books are now in stock at: Knaresborough Bookshop, an excellent independent bookshop on the High Street in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire

Rounded up

I've rounded up the characters and they now appear on the right pages, though still refuse to be moved around on the page to where I want them. Maybe that's why some books have their pictures clustered together, no, it's nothing to do with saving on printing costs, it's simply the characters escaped to that part of the book to have a party!
