Paper Moon

Some pictures you have seen before, a little more fleshed out and decided. I am projecting this project will be finished by mid-summer. I think I have broken the story down into 35-38 illustrations. I may change it a little as I go along. I am furiously querying agents and hoping that someone may be able to place my story, or any of my stories, with a publisher. Keep your fingers crossed for us. If nothing pans out, I will still have this story available for my ardent admirers!

I don't like to post a lot of private information but maybe a little bit of back story might be appropriate. We have had a rough few years, my husband lost his job, then we lost our home. Now my husband has found a job, but at a very reduced salary. I have been a stay-at-home mom for several years now, and with the meager skills I have, it is hard to see how I will be able to contribute to our economic picture. So I am doing the only thing I'm even a little bit good at, and I'm going to keep doing it until it works! If you are a new reader, I hope you will be my fan and cheer us along. I'm doing this to get a better life for my children, and I think that is something a lot of people can relate to.

looking good. it's so nice to see the works in progress. I find it's the doing that is more satisfying than the result. although looking at a creation in its completion is always a pleasure.

hope you have a sweet day.
