What a process getting a book ready to publish! My new children’s book, “Hug a Slug, Scoot a Newt, Making Friends with Nature” has about 8 reincarnations by now. My editor and I asked various people to read and make comments (suggestions or questions) about it. Then we make the necessary corrections or changes.
My daughter noticed that the docent figure didn’t change her stance throughout the story. And, yes, I had made the children have different poses and just put the thought aside of changing the docent. Originally each figure had only one stance. Now I’m changing the docent.
Which means changing seven pictures and photographing them again.
Also, several readers mentioned the need for a glossary. So I need to create that. I will used a cloth background to type on. I have to figure how the computer can do that. I photographed two sections of a possible background cloth. I am now figuring out how to make a sheet of paper out of it so I can type on it.
Below are pictures of the characters:
By making a new set of children I had a chance to have several skin colors.
