It has been a wild & crazy summer so far; I hope some of you made it out to the shows I’ve attended this year and got to say hello!
I just wanted to post a quick-update to let you guys know I’m totally spread all over my work like a fried egg. Er– well, maybe not the best of analogies, but I hope it kinda gets the point across. Here’s the run-down:
Recently Completed Projects
Jug band jamborees started long ago in the mountains of Tennessee. Musicians gathered in the moonlight to make joyful noise on washtubs, washboards, kazoos, banjos, tambourines, and drums. Bug Band Jamboree follows the musical adventure of one such band, Wilhelmina Jean and the Thumpers. Bug Band Jamboree captures the loose, foot-stomping rhyme scheme and lyrics of traditional American jug band music. Readers will love the exuberant pace and delight in the folksy atmosphere of the Deep South. This is a lively, lyrical story about the power of music and the power of compromise.
A 32 page children’s book written by Precious McKenzie with artwork by Maegan Cook.
(MY FIRST CHILDREN’S BOOK! WHEEE!)
Steven Universe Bust set:
I’ve got all the main gems, but I feel like Lion, Connie, and the fusions might need to be added one day. Lol. So many characters!
Yes, this counts as a project. I went through and updated the galleries so they’re better organized, as well as separating the published/project section so if you’re looking for particular work I’ve done, it should be easier to find. I’ve also launched a mailchimp account, and you can sign up for updates & newsletters to be directly sent to you from the Contact Me! page.
Projects In Progress
Yes, the novel that consumed my November last year is still not done. It’s sooooooo close though. So close! I’ve finally reached a point where I can reschedule working on it between other freelance projects. Then, out to my eager beta readers for a draft overhaul, and onto editing.
This is something I’ve been on the fence about announcing, but it’s getting close to publication time, so I’ll throw it up: look for some upcoming announcements as my work has been accepted in a few publications that I’ll be able to share when they come out!
In an effort to boost my writing, I have started churning out some short stories. A few of them will be available on wattpad for reading, as well as a couple that will be published by the end of the year. :3
Art, Art, and more Art!
On top of all that, there is more! Hahaha. I’ve also been working on some commissions and client work that while I can’t share yet, is pretty cool. Hope to making a lot more announcements soon!
P.S.– if anyone is wondering, Chapter 5 of TWND is in progress at last, subscribe on tapastic for updates!
That’s all for now! Good luck to those going back to school already, and happy remaining summer to everyone!!! *begins to dream about pumpkin spice and s’mores*
