I hope the new year has gotten off to a good start for all. This year I am trying to be more diligent in attending to the tasks I have been wanting to accomplish. Working on my website. Writing and illustrating more. Trying to learn the complicated art of marketing! There is something that a mentor of mine once told me: In the book industry there is only one thing you can be sure of. If your manuscript is in your desk drawer, you will never have a published book. So true. So I would like to encourage all inspiring authors and artists to go out there and seek to accomplish your goal. Sometimes the prize lies in the journey itself.
