I’m happy to report that my illustrator is back from vacation and we are swiftly moving forward with laying out the book.
In fact, if I can keep the momentum going, I have a shot at getting Stinky Stardust Feet into the hands of many:
Some things I’ve learned through this experience:
1. I’m getting better with rejection. Ninety percent of my outreach is filed as spam. (Can’t I hire someone to take the rejection for me?)
2. If the book isn’t a success, I can live out the rest of my life as a soccer mom. NBD.
3. People’s generosity is amazing. I’ve been so humbled by how many have supported this book. From sharing it with friends to slipping me money at the bar– I’m touched by everyone’s kindness.
And more news: Stinkystardustfeet.com is complete!
(Please check it out, and if you have feedback, I’d love to hear it.)
Wishing you the best,
