Yes, I am still here! I am working through a pretty extensive 'to do' list, but thought I'd better stop by and let you know that I am still around!
Ella Diaries news:
Here is the latest release for the Ella Diaries series. It's a wonderful tale full of all the usual craziness and antics you have come to expect from Ella and her friends, all centered around the School Play.
Here's a bit of an exclusive look at some of the internal artwork:
The latest edition (May 2016) of Total Girl Magazine features your chance to win a copy of this new Ella Diaries book through their COMPS CLUB.
Otherwise, it hits the shops on the 1st of May, so be sure to grab a copy, or order one online here.
I have also completed the next book in this series (!) and have started the cover art for the following book, so there's LOTS more to come in this gorgeous series.
I have been meaning to share this one with you for AGES!
This was the very first book I created on my wonderful journey with the team at Scholastic.
I will always have a soft spot for this book and it's just been released as a BOARD BOOK! This format really suits this book, and it still includes the music CD of Peter Combe's hilarious songs! This one is also due for release on the 1st of May. Here's one place you can order it.
On my desk:
A brand new picture book! Yay! I have missed working in FULL COLOUR and I am delighted to be working on my first sketches for a fun new book.
Of course we also have a several new Ella and Olivia books on the go, and I am desperately waiting to see the first proofs for another brand new (still Top Secret!) book due for release in September.
Phew! That's it for now. We are off on a very long overdue family vacation shortly, so we are counting down the sleeps until the big day!
Check back soon for more news....there's still a couple of things brewing behind the scenes that I hope to be able to share soon. x
