I'm so grateful for your post. Just happened upon your blog for the first time, due to your post at Eric Carle's..... and this post is your gift to me. Thanks.

Last week I received my first national award for a picture book that I created, author/illustrator AND publisher -- due to rejection letters. So we just made it happen ourselves. Needless to say I'm a happy camper.


My book is a tribute to the spirit of 9-11 and all things Americana. Giving away 11 signed copies to those who leave comments in the next 24 hours on my blog. Come take a look!
