Cute dog? Well, it has more meaning than just that. Last Friday, that picture and four others were mailed off to the artist to begin sketching for Spring with the Moodys. This picture of “Maple” (actually Lady in real life) will be used by the artist for her drawings. For each chapter of a Moodys book, we decide what we want for the illustration. Then we need to get a photograph of what it should look like so the artist knows what to draw.
The basic text is in, and I am working on revising and editing before the book goes to the proofreader. I’m hoping by the middle of next year that Spring will be out. Your prayers are greatly appreciated, as I’ve found this book to be the most challenging of all four thus far.
