Break down with yellow stickies

This week I am doing the story break down for one of my future books. I thought it would be good to lay it out all in one so I can see how the story flows. And use yellow sticky sketches to swap in and out.

The sketches are pretty rough!

Tour of Little Brown

I have just returned from a trip to Brooklyn and New York accompanying 3rd year students from the Alberta College of Art and Design. During the trip my Editor Connie Hsu and Art Director Patti Ann Harris gave the students a lovely tour of Little Brown and a great talk on how books are made. Thank you so much Connie and Patti!

My editor and art director at Viking had also generously offered to show the students Penguins offices too, but by that time the students were pretty exhausted exploring NYC for the first time - it's a big city! But Mike and I met up with them to talk about the new book I am starting with them, Boom, Snot, Twitty. More on that soon!

We are on twitter!

We are newly on twitter, not sure what we will talk about but you can follow us if your interested here:
