Blog Writing Log

A Beginning...

Well, I finally have taken the plunge and have started a Blog Writing Log.  Blog has to to be the newest ugliest word in the English language, but I guess we're stuck with it.  I will be "blogging" (this word is as bad as "journaling") about the stories, maps, books that I am working on at any given time.  And, most likely, I'll moan and groan about the process of writing and getting it into print.

But, to get off on the right foot I will say that yesterday I made The New York Times Bestseller list for Sunday, 11 April 2010 with my new book OLLIE'S EASTER EGGS.  It only took 25 years to get onto the list and I finally got there.  I am patient, if nothing else.  And, I'm happy to report that the book will be on next weeks' NYT Bestseller list as well---moved up three positions! 

I really can't complain.  I'm grateful for the acknowedgement.

At the moment I'm working on the finished artwork/illustrations for the two newest books in the "Gossie & Friends" series: JASPER & JOOP and GIDEON.  I love the new goslings!  They are a hoot.  And, like all the other goslings they portray various aspects of my own personality in one form or another.  It's great to be drawing new goslings for a change.
