The Sweet Smell of Jasmine
For years I wrote poetry. There was a time when I wrote 2 or 3 poems a week. I sent them to a group of friends which included my brother.
Last xmas my brother gave me the most thoughtful present. He worked with a friend of his to put a chapbook together of my poetry which she illustrated.
I was stunned and incredibly pleased.
Now it is for sale on amazon.
Not that I want anyone to feel obligated to buy it. It's just - I have a book out there in the world for sale.
HOW ABOUT THAT?!?!?!
The awesome illustrators name is Tracey Hudson Countz. (The link is to her facebook page. Not sure she has a website.)
Here are other books she has illustrated and co-written:
The Adventures of Kaylin and Sadie: The Case of the Missing Earring
by Author: Dana Hester and Illustrator: Tracey Countz Hudson
Violette: The Grandma Stories Volume 2
by Barbara Dolan, Tracey Countz Hudson and Peg Bala
The Adventures of SuperTwinz Zuce and Zena: The Bullies Learn a Lesson Volume 1
by Author: Annette N. Sikes and Illustrator: Tracey Countz Hudson
The Princess and the Pebble
by Sarah-Ann Pon, Linda Johnson and Tracey Countz Hudson
I will put up a poem or two from the book in the next couple of weeks. If I can figure out how, maybe even book pages so you can see the beautiful illustrations, too.
DO I HAVE THE MOST THOUGHTFUL BROTHER IN THE UNIVERSE OR WHAT?
