Tyrannosaurus Rex Fight a Chicken!

20 May

It’s been a long time since I posted. It’s been a long time since I had much to post about. But things are picking up a bit in LitLand, and I’m sharing good news. MacmIllan has recently accepted my picture book text Tyrannosaurus Rex vs. Edna, the Very First Chicken. No word yet on who the illustrator might be. (And for those who don’t know the field, it’s the editor who makes that choice, a jealously-guarded privilege.) We’re looking at a 2017 release date, but picture books are dicey propositions. I’ve done two others, and one took nine years, the other took four. Here’s hoping this one goes smoothly.
