So, I'm sitting here surrounded by the copyedited marked-up pages of my first picture book. As I look at the red and blue pencil marks that wind their way through the text I get a shiver up my spine. There is even a mock-up of the title page with the copyright info and ISBN numbers. Whoo Hoo! It's finally becoming real. My editor wants it back ASAP so that the illustrator can work on the final pages. I'd better get to work!
Watch for Six O'clock in San Francisco at a store near you, Spring 2008.
On this date: In 1932 the Lindbergh baby was kidnapped.
