seven days is real
Hooray! At last, my picture book Seven Days of Daisy is REAL! Thanks to lots of work and island inspiration, back burner, blather, more back burner, and a recent blast of determination, my story written and (mostly) illustrated seven years ago is now for SALE.
I immediately brought a copy to the Peaks Island Library, where I was instantly invited to read and do an activity of book-making. Next Tuesday!
I brought some copies to the Gem Gallery, which is a hot spot for new shows all summer. And tomorrow I will be at the Art on the Porch, an event/fundraiser for the Fifth Maine Regiment Museum on Peaks Island.
As a member of the Fifth Maine board, I am co-chairing the event with the lovely Monica Dominak, and praying for sunshine. I will share a table with my favorite muse and daughter, selling prints of our work, and the picture book she inspired. Here we are last year. Imagine us almost the same; Daisy is about a foot taller and I am a foot wider.
I also brought a copy to my favorite book babe, Kirsten Cappy, on her way out of town.
That girl gets around: my book is just so colorful and portable, she stashed it into her groove bag on the spot!
Get your copy at Art on the Porch, and I'll sign it for ya.
