A New Little Friend

In my last post I mentioned that I had a big surprise and a special new someone to introduce.
The time has now come!

I would like you to meet Annie.

Annie is the main character of a new children's book that I am working on with my daughter and super talented illustrator, Neesha Hudson! The story is titled Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf and is about a little girl who faces the challenges of learning to knit.

What a super exciting project this has been thus far! It has been so much fun to work on this with my daughter. As you might remember, she is six years old and is learning to knit herself.. and it is pretty obvious that the character of Annie is modeled after her. :) You may even recognize Annie's sweater too. :)

I hope that all of you will visit Annie's brand new website found HERE and enter to win a free book!
I am hoping to open up pre-orders sometime in September if everything goes as planned.

I have lots of special surprises in store.. I know that it will be a fun-filled next few months for us as we get everything together and finalized. This is obviously our first time working on a project of this nature and we are really enjoying watching this take shape.

I can't wait to release this book!
