Ever since I was little, I dreamed of becoming a starving artist, and now I’m finally pursuing that goal!!! 😛 This is my last day working at the Southwest Oklahoma City Library. From here on out, I will be trying my hand at being a full-time author. I don’t have any misconceptions about the future. I know it will be hard, and it may not work out forever, but I’m grateful to have this opportunity. Here are some pictures from my last day:
My debut middle grade novel, SKELETON TREE, came out with Scholastic on September 26th, and I had an amazing fall filled with fun book signings and events. Here are some photo highlights:
My awesome editor, Mallory Kass, recently sent me some advance final copies of Skeleton Tree!!! They are so beautiful! The cover has a unique, pearlescent finish that I don’t think I’ve ever seen before. The artwork by Lisa Perrin is amazing, especially the skull butterfly on the back. If you take the dust cover off, you’ll find an imprinted butterfly, complete with tiny skulls on a seafoam green background with vibrant pink text.
And there’s a big surprise on the inside as well. Skeleton Tree has a hidden flip book!
