They're here!!!

The Katherine The Almost Great series books arrived today! It's always exciting to have a book arrive in printed form after waiting for months to see it. These were the first chapter books I have illustrated and they were printed with hard bound (library bound) covers. The colors printed really wonderfully. No scary color surprises. Yay! ABDO did a great job!

Here's a play by play brought to you by my photographer husband, Bradley Harris. :o)...

Ta Daaaa!!!!!!!

YAY YAY YAY!! What a neat set of photos and the books look fantastic! They would definitely grab my eye in the book store! Congratulations!

By the way, how early did they send your books? The official publishing date of The Little Green Pea is April, but I'm wondering if they will be sending my book package earlier than that. Do you know the typical mode of operation?
