a new adventure

I have always had a passion for the written word. But it was not until my two wonderful little girls were born that I was more inspired to write. So I am writing a book to hopefully begin a series of books based on my children. The book is titled
*Aisley and Ala* When I Grow Up

and it is about a common argument my daughters have about what they are going to do when they grow up.

I have enlisted the help of a new friend and fantastic artist named Natascha Artworx to do the illustrations for the book. She has already completed a rough draft that looks amazing. Take a look at her other work at http://natascha-artworx.webs.com/

Be looking out for a sneak peak of the book in this blog. Let me know what you think, follow / subscribe the blog and tell your friends to visit the site as well.

We need your feedback and your help to get the word out! Thanks!

Plans for the Next Step

Natascha and I have decided to somewhat finish the book and print out a few copies to see what people think of it. We want to show to anyone who will read it. So if you are part of my family or circle of friends, you might be called upon to read it and tell me what you think!

We are very excited to see what the finished product will look like. Natascha is going to redraw the illustrations in more detail and paint them in watercolors. I am finalizing the text and we are going to design the layout together. This might take a month or so because we do live on different continents! But look out for new posts as we progress to the finish line.

Once we finish the book and have a better idea of how it will thrive in the marketplace, we will probably look to get it published professionally. Again, we are very excited! Tell everyone you know to follow the blog. Help us get the word out! Thanks!
