A short little post, as this week has been all about getting ready to celebrate my daughter's 2nd birthday. If there's one thing I've experienced being a parent, it's that it's hard to find a good birthday gift for your child. Something that means a lot to you, something that shows them you love them more than anything and something they will have forever.
I wrote this story for her birthday last year but didn't have a chance to finalize it and at the time, I didn't have all the other skills or know-how to finish it. Fortunately, I've learned a lot over the last year and was able to format the print book, design the cover, and insert the illustrations all by myself, which was awesome!
It's a tiny book but it has a special place in my heart and so I'm super happy to share it with you (it's free to download on my book page). It also has a nice little message about Treaty relationships, which we felt was important to teach our daughter about from an early age.
I put the book in the bookstore yesterday (which is when her birthday was) and the print version came today, so we'll give it to her at her party this Saturday. It's very exciting! I'm super happy with how the print version turned out and I absolutely love that the tools are now available to make projects like this.
Finally, a I'd like to say a very special thank you to my husband who did three of the six illustrations for the book. If you have a chance to check it out, I hope you enjoy it.
In the meantime, happy writing everyone!
P.S. You can also see the proof copy of The Skeleton Key which comes out next week!
