Wordless Wednesday: Beginnings of a book

It's starting to look like a REAL book! I'm proofing the manuscript this week.

This is one of my FAVORITE parts!

(Not so wordless information: SURE SIGNS OF CRAZY is a coming-of-age story in which a precocious 12-year-old writes letters to Atticus Finch for help understanding her mentally ill mother, her first real crush, and life in her small Texas town, all in the course of one momentous summer. The book is scheduled for release in July 2013)

    1. Hey Christie,

      Thanks for stopping by! I'll have more updates on the book as it gets closer to the 2013 release date. The story is about a 12 year-old girl growing up in the shadow of her mentally ill mother. More to come!
