ABC Book Competition




Very exciting news!!! Author Summer K Hall, and myself are one of twelve finalist teams in this year's ABC Book Competition! I finally finished the illustration to go along with her wonderful story entitled "Bella Upside Down." A cute story of a girl who decides to trade in right-side-upness for upside-downess for a while.

Starting Sept 30th, online voting will begin. The author/illustrator team that wins the most votes by October 30th will win a publishing contract. This is the 5th year for the contest which is run by Rita Mills.

Fellow Stories for Children illustrator, Nikki Shoemaker, and author Gillian Colley who won ABC's 3rd competition with their book "What's Wrong with Mud?" just had it published! So exciting!

Hopefully, we'll be able to get everyone to vote once a day for one month, and be published too!
