So much has happened over the course of the last few months! My father passed away in October, and because Paul has lost his job I couldn't fly home for the funeral. We have been living week to week and just making ends meet. Paul's searching for work but so far not a darn job prospect to be had.
In my ultimate wisdom I decided to open an Etsy shop. God just getting that off the ground was pure hell. Then add in the fact that I have to actually make all the stuff for sale and yeah you can see why I haven't been blogging.
But I also decided that I would go ahead and get my book published. So I started searching for an illustrator. Not an easy thing to find let me tell you! But I finally found one that not only will do the job, with the style I wanted. Phew! The only problem is, that because I am hiring an illustrator that means I actually have to pay him. Yeah so that is where I'm at now. I started a gofundme in the hopes that I can get a few contributors to help out with the funding of my first book ever! I figure with the many friends I have and with my adding my own money in maybe I can get the money to pay the illustrator and have the book published before I am too old and ugly to want to have a children's book published.
So here is a link to the gofundme. And if you feel generous, I'd really appreciate any help you can offer. Anyone who donates 25 dollars gets a copy of my book when it is published!
