A milestone

I use to work as a designer at Scholastic book clubs years ago. As I worked on these book club catalogs, I had a dream that one day, one of my books would be in them. My name would be in the illustrator by-line.

That dream finally came true.
Here is the October Firefly book club catalog, where The Mixed-Up Alphabet, a book I illustrated, is on page 4. It means alot to me because I know I am moving ahead towards all the goals and dreams I've set for myself. I better take a moment and acknowledge it.

A special thanks to Kritty who told me she saw my book in the catalog and ordered it! I can't begin to express how much it means to me.

And Tracy, who is a teacher, recommended it as a book pick in a newsletter she sends home to the kids. Holy smokes! WOW!

Thank you so much.

This reminded me of my newsletter to my kiddoes' parents last week. I'll have to send you a copy of it! (I sent the book orders home with the newsletter and your book was one of the "favorite picks" I suggested they buy!) I hope one day I can look in the book orders and find the book I hope to write/illustrate (OR both!) I still need practice practice practice! Congrats on the book...I know it has to make you feel SOOO wonderful!

Hi Jannie. I've been keeping my eyes open for this one. Do you know when it will be available for purchase? I missed it in the mailer and have looked at Scholastic's website but cannot find it. It's too cute not to have, my kids need it. Ok, maybe mom their mom needs it. :)

Congratulations.

Chickengirl said...

Jenny: thank you! This book was out last year, I'm not sure if they will have it in the clubs again. But I have copies available if you are interested: $3 (+$2 US shipping). Its also available from third party sellers on amazon!
