Today I e-mailed my editor the changes we discussed for my next book. She says it's almost ready to send to copyediting. I can't believe I'm this far along with a new book so soon after the publication of the last one.
This book has an illustrator, Joe Cepeda, who sounds far more accomplished than I am. Among other things--many other things--he illustrated Nappy Hair, which some of you may remember. I am feeling somewhat intimidated.
I just looked up Santiago Cohen, who did the illustrations for my first and third books. He has a beautiful website that I don't recall from back in the day. And look! He remembers me! Bless his heart.
