For those of you who know me, you know I'm not super great at self-promotion. But I know people do like to hear about my upcoming books. There are some Christmas books coming out this year, which I'll write about in a few weeks.
But today I want to talk about Mommy Promises. I had such a great time visiting with my editor and the designer for this book last Friday. How cool is it, also, that the designer is expecting her first child? Anyway, this is a book I wrote last spring about all the promises a mom makes to her children. The CPH website says it'll be out on 12/15/05. It might be a nice Mother's Day gift idea for next spring.
The designer, Karol, did a terrific job with the colors and all the neat little touches that go into making a picture book. And the art is fabulous. There's no image available yet on the CPH website, but I can tell you that the book is filled with beautiful autumn colors, and the children in the artwork are precious.
