Finally!! The illustrations are done and the book in mock up form. For the first time in a long time I am solidly happy with the work!
Now comes the hard part... finding a publisher.
Well hard I suppose as its new and new things can be a bit scary, especially when you are putting yourself out there with something close to the heart. At the least, I've begun to research into Canadian publishing houses who do release children's titles - a start :)
I'll give myself a week to research and then begin cold calls and emails for submissions.
Here is the final illustration
