Nice Surprise

I received an exciting email last night. It was from Karen, the author of the ‘Scoot Scoot Bandicoot’ books I illustrated in 2006/7 announcing that our cover for ‘The Big Red Bucket’ has been nominated as a contender for the ‘cover of the month’ on the Independent Publisher’s Guild Blog site. Everyone can vote for the one they like best and the winner will be displayed on the site for the whole of February and have a review on POD People. There are ten other books in contention, but just to get noticed is nice.

Here’s the link: (scroll down to Jan 4).

The cover was a joint effort. Karen told me what she wanted, I did the illustration, then Nicki, the book designer did the graphics. We make a pretty good team, I think!
