I am so excited to announce that I have signed a contract with Sylvan Dell Publishing for my first picture book! The title is The Sparrow and The Trees. It is a sweet story based on the Native American Cherokee folklore about Why the Trees Lose Their Leaves. Publication date is set for 2015!!! Come celebrate with me and read more about how just one week ago, I embarked on many firsts in my writing in a single day on my blog http://sharonchriscoe.wordpress.com/2014/02/18/149/
 
Thank you wonderful friends, CP's and BB'ers. Never give up on your dream, I have been subbing to Sylvan Dell since 2009 and almost a dozen PB's but I never gave up. I love their books!

 :thankyou :flowers2 Thank you for celebrating with me everyone!!!! And for reading my blog!
 
Whooo-hoo! Sarah(ButterflyGirl)! Thanks for being there for me this week :) And YES finally the real :snoopy :)
 
Vijaya, me too! Sylvan Dell books are so wonderful. I have loved them ever since I read Blackberry Banquet at my library in 2009. That is the first Sylvan Dell book I read and I was hooked!
 
Marcia--I am so glad I didn't give up too. If you want something bad enough, you just can't surrender. In fact I am working on something right now that has been ongoing back and forth with an editor for a year now. She has already said she wants it once all edits are done. It's not a PB, it is an article in a really cool book! More later on that one since I am getting near the end :)
 
Thanks again BB'ers!
