JD’s Writer’s Blog.

This goes with a short story I’m working on.

A NEW SEGMENT ADDED TO IT’S STORY TIME: CHAPTER BOOK PREVIEWS

It’s Story time will have a show once every two months for authors of chapter books called: Chapter Book Previews. Authors who come on can read THEIR favorite passage from their chapter books: about a ten minute reading. The show will need a copy of the book in pdf or rtf to view and the exact passage specified as well as a jpeg of the book’s cover. 

 

WHAT I’M WORKING ON

Right now I’m working on a book of my adult short stories called, Short Stories and Other Imaginings For The Reading Spot. Some pictures will be sketching and some in shades of gray, (not fifty shades!) This one is for a story called Spiders, a short short, about two paragraphs long. In the story the woman is working an apple press while she thinks about the things that are happening in her life.

Another project I’m doing sketches for is a sequel for my children’s book, Janoose The Goose  called, Janoose & The Fall Feather Fair. The Fox returns to Free Range Farm and he wants something from Janoose!
This book I co-wrote with my grandson. It’s in the sketching stage as you can see by the picture. Hope you will come back to see how these two projects progress.
Thanks, JD
