WHOOEEE!!!!!! Two Books for ZONDERKIDZ

Okay as I type this I am thinking I am crazy!! But. . .over the course of the next 8 months I will be doing 3 books!!!!!!! I cant' believe it!

A few days ago I was approached by Zonderkidz to do 2 books for them!!!! Yes 2 not just 1 but 2!! Can you tell I am jumping up and down!

I am just so darned excited I can't sit still. I have been dying to announce it and I just got permission today.

Zonderkidz is a Christian Publisher owned by Harper Collins Publishers!!!

My goal since I started this career was to work with a mainstream Christian Publisher! When I first started illustrating for kids five years ago I went into our local Bible Bookstore and looked at the children's books to see which books I liked and the names of the publishers who published them. Then I started including them on my list of promos mailers. I walked out the store that day with a book titled Who Made God? And of course it was published by non other than ZonderKidz! So working with them was definitely at the top of the list and a dream come true!!!!!!

Pardon my celebrating. . .but Wahoo!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS, SHERRY!

It struck me when I read your announcement that I illustrated a Zonderkidz book several years ago, but I can't even remember anything about it, the name or anything. I forgot all about that book until you mentioned Zonderkidz.

I hope you have a thoroughly wonderful time with the three books, and don't get too stressed and overwhelmed.

You are the best! Congratulations! This is a wonderful opportunity to realize a dream. You should really enjoy these assignments, especially with your wonderful new "toy".... (Cintiq).

We used a lot of Zonderkidz material in our former Sunday School. When you are finished, let us know the titles so we can put them on our bookshelves.
