[Updated December 23, 2012: I wasn't sure what was going to happen with this project when the editor, Maria Modugno, left Harpercollins to join Random House. However, a new editor has been assigned and I've been told that they still want me as illustrator (yay :)). Launch date is going to change, though. More details when I have them.]
I'm pleased to announce that I'm going to be illustrating the new RUBY ROSE series by Rob Sanders for Harpercollins. The first is titled RUBY ROSE ON HER TOES, and is tentatively scheduled to come out in 2014.
I'm feeling so grateful to the people who have supported and encouraged me during my publication journey (like Beckett Gladney, who first convinced me to enter that illustration portfolio showcase back in 2010). I'll be writing more about many of them but right now, I'd like to once again thank Justin Chanda and Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers. Justin was the first editor/publisher to believe in me enough to offer me a book contract (I'M BORED), and other exciting opportunities have come my way as a result.
