I’ve been staying up late and working really hard trying to get everything done before the NESCBWI.org Spring Conference coming up in just a few days. I was hoping to have my new web site created (check), my Facebook fan page created (check), refined and practiced pitches for four books (nope) and have a meaningful display for my clay illustrations (nope). Since I’m trying to accomplish a lot with not enough time and not really knowing too well about putting such things together, I think I’ve done fairly well, but I’ve fallen a little short of where I hoped to be.
I would really appreciate it if you would take a look at my Facebook Page and let me know what looks good and what doesn’t. I read up on image size and figured out most of it, however, the image for my clay alien letter B is slightly blurred. I think this is due to Facebook re-sizing the image even though I created it in the dimensions and file size it needs to be. Oh well. At this point I’ve got about a day or so to try and print some business cards and post cards, and I also want to make a couple of iron on decals so I can wear my work while I meet people. I’m really looking forward to making new friends at the conference and trying to absorb as much knowledge as possible about writing for children. I’ve really worked hard with my writing, illustration, and my platform this year. I can’t wait to listen to what other writers and illustrators are working on, and share my story with them.
If you’re going to the conference please by all means tap me on the shoulder and introduce yourself. I really enjoy making new friends!
