New Year, same vision
Aerial Tram Dominica's Rain Forest
Today is New Year's Day, and I am very grateful for the past year and looking forward to a great 2012. There have been many changes taking place in my life as well as my family's life, including the journey to publish this incredible book. I have met quite a few people along the way, who are dedicated to making this project a reality, especially my partner in crime, illustrator extraordinaire, Haily Cryan. Her commitment to the project, professionalism, and reliability has surpassed my expectations, and I am so grateful for her never ending focus to bring this book to press.
I have been quite behind on posting, not because I am not drowning in material, but rather the last month has been quite hectic. My mother-in-law who lives with us is a bit more ill than previous months; we traveled to the beautiful Nature Island of Dominica for the holidays to spend time with my parents and my husband's parents, as Stew wanted this trip to be an extented celebration of his milestone birthday; the kids were out of school from December 16th. Things just got a bit more challenging. Thanks to Haily, there area few beautiful images to compliment the book. I can't wait to share some with you in my next post. Rebecca is also working hard on choosing fonts for the text, and trying to fine tune the cover layout.
Please stay tuned, we are trying our best to be on schedule. The year has just started and we want to start it off with a bang.
