My First Trade Book!



I resisted putting the title for this post in ALL CAPS, even though that's How I Feel. It's a bit like a first child.

Kim and her paintbrushes are happy to announce to the world that her little bundle of joy True Blue Santa has arrived, healthy and happy, weighing just under 5 kilos for 10 copies.



Gah! That's my name on the cover! And it's a real hard-cover-like book that's going to be in honest-to-goodness bookstores. neato mosquito.

I'm sooooo happy with how it turned out.

It will be on the shelves here in October, but you can go here to pre-order, if you're into that sort of thing. Not sure if that is for Australian customers only. I have my people working on world domination, so I will let you know.
