While I've been proofing cute bebe feets, I've also been in the midst of editing another book...a longer book. It's a story I'd wanted to write & make real for years and years. I finally wrote it down last Spring, and my editor (who has been an important and dear and close collaborator on all my books) wanted to publish it and now I find myself at the end of a big round of revisions, and so pleased to be there.
It's my first proper novel. Though it is still short by grown up standards, it's quite a bit longer than Oddfellow's, which is really more a series of vignettes.
This one is a fairy tale.
And I will give you one hint: it's an expanded version of my favorite fairy tale. Some of you might know what that is, or might be able to hazard a guess.
It is scheduled for publication next year, 2016, and I will share dispatches and other bits as it gets closer!
PS: It will be illustrated! Mostly words, but there will be pictures too
