Plague Days 2020: New book! Christmas is coming
These are my models for a new children's book I'm starting this week called "As The Sun Rises, Morning in Mazatlán". We did a photoshoot on the beach and I'll be drawing from the photos to give the book a realistic look. So no, this exact image will not be published.
I've started illustrating another new book as well. This one is called "The Gift From Little Raccoon, a Pandemic Story". Yes, it's set in the pandemic so I'm trying to get it done ASAP. Now that there are vaccines for COVID 19 I suppose I have another year to get it out and still be relevant.
The really exciting news is that my book "Fireflies" is now available as a hardcover and a paperback and on kindle.
"Sisters, Caitland and Cassidy take the ferry one summer night. Under the light of the full moon, the fog rolls in and tiny, glowing lights surround them on the upper deck of the boat. "Fireflies!" Caitland whispers in trembling excitement. "Get them!" Then they begin to make one of the biggest mistakes of their lives."
Anyway, I hope you'll check it out, especially if you have kindle unlimited!
Christmas is now about a week away and tonight is the last night of Hanukkah!
Now I must get ready for Christmas as I'm not prepared AT ALL, though I have been filling a lot of Christmas orders through my mask store on Etsy, so at least I'm helping others get ready for Christmas.
This year I learned that Christmas cards are not part of the culture here in Mexico. It's funny because it's the first time all year that I went to look for a greeting card, but, no they just don't do it except for as a novelty item in one store at the mall.
The big news of course is that there's a vaccine. The bad news is that it will take quite a long time for the whole world to be vaccinated (I also know there are some people that refuse to be vaccinated, but they are like the anti-maskers, they don't count to me.)
Anyway, I see that most of the Eastern United States are getting covered in snow as I write this. Thank you for sharing your beautiful snowfall pictures. I enjoy seeing them, but I don't miss shoveling. Today I'll be taking an evening walk on the beach. :)
