The manuscript and illustrations for Beyond Valley Ridge have been submitted, I'm hoping to speak to the publisher early this week! I'm so excited and nervous and exhausted and overwhelmed and in disbelief...talk about a wave of emotions. This is really happening. Glory to God for this amazing opportunity!!
I will update again once I get the final proof and the book goes to print.
After reviewing quite a few artist submissions, I've officially picked an illustrator for Beyond Valley Ridge! Sean Balsano is a freelance artist who has considerable experience illustrating children's books as well iPhone apps and an animated television show. I'm happy to welcome Sean to team and I'm eager to see him bring Beyond Valley Ridge to life.
Sean lives in Lisbon, Portugal with his wife Miriam...who is also an artist! Check out Sean's work at The Artwork of Sean Balsano. Production on BVR starts next month, so stay tuned for more updates! Until then, take a look at one of the concept drawings Sean has done for Beyond Valley Ridge. Keep in mind, this is a rough sketch so you'll have to wait for the book to see the real deal!
Beyond Valley Ridge just received it's first write up from an encouraging blogger. Our campaign is gaining momentum and parents, children's literacy enthusiasts and philanthropists alike are taking notice. Get involved and let's get this book published! http://hollyhousewife.wordpress.com/2012/03/06/support-reading-beyond-valley-ridge/
