Yippee! It's published. The first copies of my book arrived today!
Okay, so this is shameless self-promotion of a sort, but look at it this way: the sooner we sell out, the sooner I'll quit posting about this project. Hint, hint.
What I really want to promote, though, is the art in the book. We utilized the talents of 18 artists, ranging from sixth grade through retirement years. The work by these folks is what really makes the book.
"Don't Pick Up The Ham With Your Fingers" is a little gift or novelty book; the subtitle is "A Little Book to Do Momma's Naggin' For Her."
This illustration is featured on the cover. It's by Austin Lane, a student at Socastee High School near Myrtle Beach.
It's a book filled with the humor and wit of a parent's nagging. So, why do the illustrations and caricatures feature a pig, a monkey, a ladybug and flip flops? Find out when you get your copy.
Below are the links to see more about the little book and about the illustrators, including Emily Lyles, whose art is on exhibit at one of the Smithsonian galleries 11/1/11 - 1/22/12.
