Whoa, okay, that sounds like a lot bigger deal than it actually is. No big publisher has contacted me or anything that, I’m self publishing and it’s a purely for-fun kind of project. (Also, I really, REALLY want to be an author by the time I’m 24).

Okay, so the book! It’s a children’s book and it’s about a tree. A tree that tells stories and that’s literally all I can tell you right now. More details to come in the future, I promise. :) The current plan is to have the book finished, printed and available on the blog by Christmas but as I’m sure you know, things like this have a way of taking more time than expected.

Until then let me know if you have any questions about the self publishing process! I’m working with the very talented Lisa Naffziger as my illustrator and it’s been a crazy cool experience talking back and forth with her about the drawings, I’m learning SO much.

Is anyone else doing any writing? I’d love to hear about it if you are!

    Congrats! Sounds amazing. Ive actually always wanted to write a book….but I do so many other thing, I thought its best I don’t add that on the plate:)

      I definitely understand, it’s turned out be a lot more time consuming then I originally thought. A great learning experience though! :)

      You won’t have to, silly. I’ll be doing a give a way on the blog and I’ll be sure to rig it so you get one. ;)

    • Mollie, October 24, 2013 at 10:47 am:

      No way, silly. I’m going to do a give away several copies on the blog once it comes out but I’ll rig things so you win one. ;)
