I just wanted to take a moment to give you an update on my progress with Squirrel Picnic’s first book. My thought is that by making it a habit to keep you all in on the adventure of creating and self-publishing this book, I will be even more motivated to get it out on time (March 1, 2016). Just knowing you all are out there looking forward to it (I so appreciate your encouragement) will help keep me accountable. I’ll try to do an update post every month or so. That should keep me on task.
This past weekend, I was able to get a lot of work done. I now have a pretty solid story and even a title. Woohoo! Are you ready for this? Cue the fanfare! Here it is…
Squirrel Picnic’s Big Acorn Race
It will be a full-color picture book about Hodge and Podge and Eric as they compete to see who can get an acorn out of a tree without actually climbing the tree. They really have to put their thinking caps on for this one. And the whole thing, from backgrounds to the tiniest props will be crocheted. It will be a very colorful, yarn-covered feast for the eyes. Well, at least that’s my goal.
Okay, that’s all I’m going to tell you for now. You’ll just have to stay tuned to see where this takes me next. Until then…
