Yay! I received the new cover for my picture book, BEDTIME MONSTER, and can share it. It's light yet a little mysterious--see the shadow? I like the assortment of toys and, of course, there has to be a bed for the bedtime monster.
Raven Tree Press has chosen Bonnie Adamson to illustrate. She does wonderful drawings, cute children and adorable animals. She's already illustrated a few books for Raven Tree Press including I WISH I WAS STRONG LIKE MANUAL written by Kathryn Heling and Deborah Hembrook.
I wonder what the boy and the monster will look like. I'm sure it will be a while before I find out. Bonnie is just starting the inside illustrations and BEDTIME MONSTER isn't coming out until 2010. Still, it's exciting to see a picture book cover with my title and name on it and with illustrations inspired by a story I wrote. It's something I've been waiting for for a long time.
