Some success on the book cover for TWIN TAILS of Mason Beach...Take a PEEK!

Had some fun success working on the cover yesterday for my upcoming children's chapter book, TWIN TAILS of Mason Beach. I can only share the back cover right now so not to give away too much before the children's PREDICT ME contest kicks in (hopefully within a month or so). So here is the back cover idea (Not final art! Still need to purchase the bubble background! Bar code and publisher is still lacking as well.)...can you let me know what you think about it? Stay tuned here for the start of the children's contest and, finally, for the publishing of TWIN TAILS of Mason Beach!

AUTHOR VISITS to two elementary schools in Utah...

I just returned from Utah where I was able to give two author presentations on SOOTYcinders...A Cinderella Tale... while visiting and helping family members who are living there in Utah!  The children and their teachers were amazingly attentive and we had fun together.  I left them with a SOOTYcinders coloring page, a copy of SOOTYcinders...A Cinderella Tale... for their school libraries and had drawings for a free copy of the SOOTYcinders chapter book and coloring book.  I hope this helped to encourage these young students to enjoy reading, creating and writing!  :o)
