Children's books, writing with my daughter this summer, and a little more

My oldest daughter is 9 years old.  Since I've been working harder at writing, she has expressed an interest in writing a book with me and then writing one on her own.  I am very excited about this idea.

This little lady has asked to write a story with me, then she wants to write her own book. She has contrived a fanciful story concept that she wants to explore.  So I'm encouraging her to think about the story, its conflicts, plot, and all the little nuances that go into writing a book.  I think she may be writing her first book this summer!  It makes me proud that she wants to try her hand at becoming an author.

As for me?

Art is well underway on the children's books.  My other literary projects are kicking off pretty well ( I just launched my first kickstarter two days ago for one of my role-playing titles. You can find it):  Here

I received an email from an artist who wants to work with me on some projects.  So for the first time I have more artists than I do books that need illustrations.  Nice thing about that is I can spend more time with my notes on titles I want to develop, which is a wonderful leisure to have.

I've got some ideas to explore that are very exciting.  Please do wish em well.
