Teasing the Fall/Spring Line Up
Oh! Have we got some good books coming soon for you! Let’s see now, there are at least 3 books for kids and big kids, one really nice work on the art of oral storytelling, a collection of off-kilter folktales. We’re making some editorial decisions about two more how-to books and we’re talking to new potential authors all this month. Along with new authors, we have two new illustrators who are bringing their time and talent to our upcoming books. You just have to keep your eyes open for fresh works, coming soon.
So! Add yourself to the mailing list over on that >>>> side of the website and we’ll keep you in the loop!
Ok! Fine, here’s a teaser of one of the new illustrations from one of the big-kids’ books. Think the moon over the Sonoran desert. . .
Mesa Book Festival 2017
We’ll be at the Mesa Book Festival on December 9th! We hope you’ll stop by our booth.
