WOW! You are such an inspiration! Thank you for not giving up on a dream- a powerful message to the kids we teach and to fellow teachers. I needed that reminder to "do the dream". Congrats on your success-well deserved!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! OH but you did it!!!! This is like the best news. I have to tell you that you are an inspiration and I hope that you will inspire more people to do what is in their hearts and souls to do. I am very proud of you and and you SHOULD be too!! I know the hard work that must have gone into doing this wonderful project! People often tell me that , " Children's book illustration? Oh you need to get real job! How hard could it really be??? I have a children's book that I would like to write and oh, could you illustrate it for me?" Most times I say nothing. They don't have a clue and I ain't got time to educated them so I let them think what they want too. I you and I know the truth. I hope that you will sell many copies and do very well. I now that this must have been lots of work to pull of, but you did your thing and it's wonderful!!! I wish you even more success through 2010. many, many, many more books on your desk to publish! Hugs
