It's a book!

Usually the mailman brings things likes junk mail and bills, but today was different! An advanced reader's addition of Haunted Histories, Creepy Castles, Dark Dungeons and Powerful Palaces by J.H. Everett and Marilyn Scott-Waters arrived.



It came out great! The book designer did a lovely job of it. It's been a long, long time from doing the proposal until this day, hundreds of drawings and many, many hours of work. I am filled to the brim with delight.

I can't wait until July 17th when it comes out in stores.

This is me right now.






Making fiction for children, making books for children, isn't something you do for money. It's something you do because what children read and learn and see and take in changes them and forms them, and they make the future. They make the world we're going to wind up in, the world that will be here when we're gone. ~ Neil Gaiman
