Wordsmith Wednesday: Tales From the Toy Store

Happy Wednesday, everyone! This week I want to give you a sneak peek behind the scenes of bringing Tales From the Toy Store to life. The book has been written and just finished up some time with beta readers. I can't believe how close we are to publishing! So, what's happening now?

Art! Woot! I just sent the final reference photos for the illustrations to my artist, Eric Cockrell. He's going to turn real life toys into pictures for the book and I can't wait to see them. I'm incredibly excited to see what he does with them. I just know they're going to be awesome. Once that's done, it's my job to insert them into the book. We also need to finalize the cover which means I have to write the back copy. It seems like a lot but we're in that downhill slope to publication and I'm so eager to share these stories with all of you!

Before I get back writing, I want to give you a sneak peek at a couple of the characters that will be in the book:

Toby the Gnome

Edgar the Raven

Aren't they great? These are toys that actually live right here in my house and who I've written about for the book. They each have their own personalities and get up to all sorts of adventures!
