Fan ArtMy kids have enjoyed following along on my publishing adventure.  My son was very supportive.  When I showed him my book on Amazon, he said, “That’s cool, but I was published before you.”  (His short story was selected for inclusion in a children’s anthology.)  So, I guess this all old hat to him.  😛

My daughter, on the other hand, was more supportive.  She drew me this awesome picture.  (I love the thought bubbles.  One says, “I love this book.”  And the other says, “I wonder what happens to Addie.”)  However, I’m not allowed to call it “fan art.”  Because, according to her, she’s not JUST a fan; she’s my daughter.  Hence, this post is labeled Art.


  1. That is adorable! A drew me some artwork, too, and I hung it up in a place of honor in my office. I love how excited they get for their moms’ accomplishments. : )

  2. And how they let everyone know that their mom wrote a book. My daughter sold a copy to her teacher, lol. 😀
