Stroke of Luck

So I've had a few days off from blogging. Wish I could say I'm well rested and was on a beach somewhere enjoying a fruity drink with an umbrella straw. No, that unfortunately wasn't the case. I was busy stripping sheets, washing blankets, and disinfecting vomit filled cribs. And just when you think your day couldn't get any worse you realize, uh oh, I think I caught the same thing. As you're busy surrending you realize one more piece of information, tomorrow is the Valentine's day party at Preschool. But luckily, in my super mom fashion I had actually planned ahead and purchased the Valentines over the weekend.  Sometimes it's just crazy luck that you didn't forget. Other times like these, I know someone was looking down on me and saying, "Give this one a break....her head is in the toilet."

Enough about my stroke of good luck, I'm here to tell you about the Elephant. This is going to be the year. 2010. The year " Elephant in the Aisle Seat" gets published. I know I should be sleeping right now, building up my immunities, but I've been finishing my manuscript to send off to the publishing house. I've signed on with an extremely talented illustrator Deborah Melmon. http://blogdebsart.blogspot.com/ You can check out her recently published books, and even get a glimpse of the elephant.

To give you a teaser....this is for the back cover.

What comical mischief would happen if an ELEPHANT sat next to you on an Airplane? Let your child's imagination take flight on this laughable airplane ride. Find out why the passengers will want to hold on to their hats, bring some extra towels, and watch out for flying peanuts. Be sure to buckle-up, it will be a WILD ride.

Stay tuned for more info on my first children's book!
