Book Contract with Simply Read Books!

I’ve got some very exciting news to announce in today’s blog post. After much planning, dreaming, learning, promoting and waiting I have signed a book contract with Canadian publisher Simply Read Books for the first-ever Mr.Buttonman children’s picture book!

I first met the publisher of Simply Read Books last year at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair where I introduced my book idea to him. He was very open and interested in my character and embroidered illustrations and we immediately exchanged contact information. Now almost a year later, the agreement is official!

The story has been written by me and will be filled with 32 hand-embroidered illustrations. There is much work ahead before publication next Spring 2017, but I am so excited to get to working on it!
