After all is said and done....

It was worth it.  The whole "making a book thing"... yeah I'd do it all over again. :)

I've gone as an attendee to the Orange County Kid's Book Fest for several years, but this year I was an author/illustrator. It was exciting, exhilerating, touching, and although it was a lot of work preparing for it, it didn't feel like work. Must be on to something here....

Since it's #Inktober, my instagram account has been littered with drawings like these:

More to come.

Oh and the book is available online! Just head over to the shop if you want to pick one up.

Still working on the last pieces for the kickstarter folks. They get some extra swag and have to wait for their books, but I think it'll be worth it. The swag is starting to look legiiit.

Lots of love,

Annie
