I have just finished a book with my publisher, Beach Lane Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. The book is called, Tell Me About Your Day Today and it is written by Mem Fox. I will write more about this book in future posts, closer to when it comes out next September, but right now all I want to share is my love for Beach Lane Books, a studio where two California editors work. It is a magical place where pictures and words come together to become gorgeous picture books and sometimes adventurous chapter books. I visited there last January and this is what I saw:
|A pail and shovel on the steps to the studio.|
|A cozy entryway with an excellent message|
for everyone in the publishing biz.
|A table for work with colored chairs that seem to say:|
"Sit here!" "No, here, sit here!"
and a window to see the sea from.
|Shells on the windowsill.|
|A bike and books, lots of books!|
|More books and a bulletin board just waiting... |
for the perfect pictures, quotes, and postcards!
|Flowers, hummingbirds, and yellow finches!|
