More of the process


I've had some obstacles I've gone through or around in the journey to publishing my first Children's Book recently. Mostly I sent out a lot of work, got some responses and offers back, some rejections too. Also i joined the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. Through there I was able to meet some folks in the biz. The more I try, the more clues I pick up. Thought you'd appreciate seeing a page that i sent out...This is a scene from my book..It's about the journey to a healthy food practice! The journey of publishing is full of struggle, but we as creatives must never give up.Ever.

Thanks! Its definitely a story that hasn't been told yet. Or at least i haven't seen a book like it on the shelves. Father+son, People of Color, healthy eating.....etc

maybe you can add something about the problems of the lack of healthy foods in the hood. i forgot what it's called...a "food desert"...well i say it's a damn good concept and it will be something fresh and original.

This story will be focusing more on an "action". But you are right, that is a super good idea! I hope to work w/ some organizations who are combating that like the CSA.
