I couldn't be happier to announce another manuscript has been accepted by Sparkhouse Family to be published as a board book in 2019. The title is (tentatively) HUGGLE WUGGLE, BEDTIME SNUGGLE. 

Some of you may remember that an earlier version of this story was accepted by Rising Moon over ten years ago, but was cancelled when Northland Publishing dissolved.  I was so bummed at the time, but recently pulled it out and revised for Sparkhouse.  So thankful for the happy ending!

So great when the old stuff can get new life! Was it a contest entry over there? We were hoping for a Blue Board winner.

Thank you, everyone!  :love5
Barbara, I like the way you shortened the title to HUGGLE WUGGLE! What do you guys think? Is a shorter title like HUGGLE WUGGLE better than a longer one - HUGGLE WUGGLE, BEDTIME SNUGGLE? Of course, I'll see what the editor says when the time comes, but I'm curious what you all think.
And Debbie, this was more of a board book ms, so I didn't enter it in the PB contest. But I've been crossing my fingers, too, for a Blueboard winner.

I like the full huggle, wuggle, bedtime snuggle--so you know from the very start it's a bedtime book, though you should be able to have a huggle anytime,  no? Love the image it creates in my head. This is going to be such a favorite for kids and parents.
