A dream come true! : )
I wanted to share with you my very, very happy news that I am officially working with Lee & Low on two new books due in 2015! Today, I received the contract in the mail and it feels so great to be officially working on two picture books with such an amazing team. I am grateful for my agent's wonderful and hard work. Thank you Nicole! And I am so grateful to have this opportunity to work with my new editor, Jessica, and my new art director, Maria.
Something also very wonderful, too, is that the main characters are diverse children! I am truly honored to help support the efforts in bringing diverse books to the future generations.
Thank you all for supporting me through the years here at the blog..without your support and encouragement, my journey would be less rich, less blessed..so I thank you with all my heart.
The hard work is ahead, and I hope to share bits and pieces if I can (I'll have to get approval to do so), but I am so excited about it that I'm going to give it my all! ~ Shirley
