On New Year's Day 2014, while plotting out all my grandiose plans for the year, I jotted down 'Publish a book' amongst the long list of goals. It looked great in my list and my children were over the top ecstatic with the idea.
The next morning, I received a phone call from AuthorHouse, a book publishing company, enquiring if I would be interested in publishing some of my works. Ahhh...serendipity.
And so it began.
I submitted the manuscript for the first book I will bring to market, 'What is Growing Out of Your Ear?'. I wrote this story in 2006 in memory of my Grampsy, who always had a wise word to say about pretty much everything. I wrote this story for my daughter, Evelyn, who reminded me of myself when I was a little girl. This is a whimsical story of a Grandfather’s playful, good-humoured words to his granddaughter, foreshadowing what happens if you swallow a cherry pit.
The artwork is in the final stages before the book goes into production. Following is a sneak peek into the book:
It was summer and I was six years old.
My sister and I were in the backyard, eating cherries. They were so yummy.
When we finished, we brought the bowls into the house to give to my Grandma.
'What is Growing Out of Your Ear?' is expected to launch in the coming months. Stay tuned for updates and more exciting news.
