Signed, Abiah Rose -- in My Hands

My first picture book, Signed, Abiah Rose, will be released June 8!
I had seen F&Gs, but knew there would be color modifications and other small changes and looked forward to seeing the actual book.  So on Friday, when my fabulous editor (Abigail Samoun) handed me an advance copy of my book in person it was quite a treat.  Abigail was passing through on her way to the Orange County writer’s retreat in Temecula, where she was a guest editor.  I had met her briefly at an SCBWI summer conference (before she had read my manuscript), but in the last year and a half we’ve just communicated by e-mail and phone, working together on Abiah.  It was fun to spend time with her, made even better by the surprise of having my very first picture book actually in my hands!  Thank you, Abigail!

  1. It was a pleasure to be able to deliver the book to you in person! I hope Abiah is the first of many stories we'll work on together.
