I am proud to announce that I have finished my children's book dummy!
These color images are from my dummy titled Will You Be My Friend? Much time and effort went into this project and I'm so proud of it. There were many revisions, but it was exciting to see how the story improved with every change.
Receiving feedback from my critique group was very helpful and helped me grow as an author and illustrator - I highly recommend it!
The dummy is available upon request.
Here are some pages from my dummy and some final color pieces (You can see some changes from the dummy drawings to the final drawings - can you spot them?). Note the piece with the flower is not sequential with the other two images.
My complete book dummy - 32 pages!
My next steps include reaching out to publishers and attending the New Jersey Society of Children's Writers and Illustrators conference in June. I'm really excited! I love children's books!
