I can't hold in the secret any longer: I'd Rather be Short is going to get published! When I was in Kindergarten, I told my teacher that I was going to write and illustrate books when I got older. It's actually here. I can hardly believe it. My agent has been amazing and landed us several bids. I am thrilled to have Plume (imprint of Penguin) as my publisher. I have a few IRBS drawings posted, but there are many many more to go. I have learned a ton through this process and I can't wait to write more about it in the next few days. Thank you for all your support with this series. I don't want to take for granted all of the people who have helped me along the way. I am so blessed to get to do what I love so much.
The book will be released Fall of 2013, but I need to have it complete in the next few months. This is my official warning to the locals: you may not see me for a little while.
(This is why I said I was looking for help yesterday. Please feel free to contact me if you want to contribute to the blog — I'd love to feature essays, art, music videos, opinions, rants, raves, style collages, etc.)
