I sometimes feel like I'm going in twenty directions at a time. Make that twenty five! I reviewed Stephanie Lisa Tara's lovely book I'll Follow The Moon on blog talk (and she credited me with helping her achieve #1 in edownloads in her category-- WONDERFUL!). Still learning Photoshop, nearly finished with Will Terry and Jake Parker's FABULOUS Visual Storytelling course (final critique to do), and I can see an improvement in my work, ALREADY and I'm STOKED.
regularly on eblog, and slowly building my readership. Reviewing books
every week, adding a coloring page, and writing about my process of
thinking, illustrating and writing.
I'm often also wondering if I
should be Tumbling, Twitting, Wordpressing, Behancing, and Pinteresting
and wondering further, when I'm supposed to have the TIME, lol, because
I still write and illustrate BOOKS and make images for my various
online stores (new venture is offering my images as downloads for people
to put on their own favorite things, for dollars, on Etsy). Anyhow, I
neglect this. But received another wonderfully nice review on Nana's
Gift and thought I'd share here. Especially as I have no idea where to
post reviews of my books...
In a related question. I'm
thinking of publishing the blog I write on Eblog to my Goodreads, Tumblr
and Wordpress accounts. I know different people catch different posts.
Would it be offensive, or good sharing practices/marketing (how do you
know who I am and what I do without the blog?) Please feel free to
contact me with your thoughts here or on FB or through my Eblog, firstname.lastname@example.org, I'll be publishing this post there as well.
ANYHOW, (and a mighty wooohoooo!) via Michael Strickland and the Young People's Pavilion:
In this heartwarming, touching, and beautifully written picture book by
Agy Wilson, Darlee Sims is left at Nana's for the weekend and at first
is not happy with it. But having fun with Nana, Pasha and Honey, Darlee
learns about her family, and best of all herself. With wonderful
illustrations that have a hand-drawn look, Nana's Gift offers a timeless
message about intergenerational family relationships.
