I love my Midsouth chapter.
I'm one of the full participants in this year's Create Your Best Picture Book Dummy with Guiseppe Castellano and Orli Zuravicky. We're starting with a PB manuscript and getting both editorial feedback and art direction along the way, from both our peers and our professional contacts.
We've just turned in our first manuscript and it's all very exciting.
Here, I've included a little character sketch of my big-eared bat, the main character for my submission.
Many thanks to friends Mary Uhles and Susan Eaddy for all the hard work they've given to this event!
