Nice to meet you Jack!
Well done Maryann for creating a new character, and allowing him out to meet us!

Hey Jack! Welcome to te PBI blog! We are all eager to hear a lot more about you!!


Maryann, your not bad at this, Jack looks wonderful... well except I would like to see a closeup of his lovely green sneakers:)
What a terrific publisher you will be doing this with, I'm probably as green as Jacks shoes right about now:)
I'd love to know more about the story but I guess I will have to wait till next year huh.... RATS!



Thanks for all the nice comments. Yes- I'm excited to be working with FS&G, which is a relatively new publisher for me.

One thing intersting about FS&G is the art has to be in 1 1/2 yrs before it's release! (if I miss my Jun 1 deadline it will be on Spring 08!) Anyway- RE: Writing...I decided, after writing complicated story lines, that I would write some very simple books.

I'm hoping for good things...But who knows!


Jack looks like a fun character for us all to get to know, Maryann! Can't wait to find out his talent!



It's nice
