Hooray for Masterpiece!

Only about a month and a half away from being released, the buzz about Masterpiece, written by Elise Broach, has already begun. I could not be more excited about it. It's my first illustrated chapter novel, and as I remember it, the action that occurred around us was insane, to be mild. It came to multiple hospital rooms, across oceans, in trains, while dog sitting... creating these illustrations almost seemed like the one thing that kept me grounded during a turbulent time.

And I cannot be more excited when the School Library Journal wrote these nice things about Elise's novel. Check it out. I really hope the best for this special book.

VERY curious about this one. I am in process of writing a chapter book and I can't stand the thought that I'd have to illustrate it with b/w line drawings on sandpapery paper. Your book sounds really cool!
