Bedtime Kiss for Little Fish and Rotem Moscovich!

Before I post my roundup of Miami, I have to post this!

How cute is that? Thank you to illustrator Debra Ziss! I've seen a few interior spreads and just can't wait to hold the entire book. Launch date is June 1. Title and bubbles will have foil.

And who else do I have to thank? First, my fab agent Elizabeth Harding from Curtis Brown, Ltd. (No photo of Elizabeth. *sigh* We have not yet met face-to-face!)

And then Rotem Moscovich, Associate Editor at Scholastic! She's been awesome to work with through this process. Together we brainstormed the title. Look how adorable she is:

I haven't met her either, but Joan Holub found this photo on Publisher's Weekly for me! She's the best Grouchy Ladybug ever. :~) I hope to work with her on many more projects.

So that's the news for today. *do a little dance*

Yay for an awesome team and a new book coming soon!

Sorry the cover isn't showing in Internet Explorer, everyone. It's clear as day in Mozilla. *sigh* As soon as it loads at Amazon, I'll try again!

Okay, so I scanned a cover, and the quality is much lower and darker, but everyone can see it at least!
