A New Year and new projects

Hello! Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year. I had Christmas off and some time over New Year to rest and relax but have mostly I've been working on lots of lovely things.

One of them is a new book with a top publisher and something I've been working on for months now. This was mentioned in my last post and got the go ahead after it was shown at the book fair in Frankfurt last year. It's been a very challenging project but I'm sure will be all worth it in the end! The style is different for me but it's always fun to do something a bit different.

The other project I've been working on is Busy Ant Maths for Collins Education (a division of HarperCollins UK). This has kept me extremely busy working on several briefs a week. Drawing lots of different things and lots of kids too!

The first years are due to be published soon (eek) and I'm waiting on the next years to start.

I've also been asked to sample for a project which I would love to be involved in. It's definitely right up my street and with a publisher I'd love to work with. So keep everything crossed for me!

If I have time I might even work on my chapter book idea in time for the book fair in March. So this year has started out quite good for me so far. Looking forward to what the rest of 2014 will bring.
