I mentioned it before, but here it is again: unless something terrible happens (and terrible things do happen all the time), Verena and I will be writing & illustrating a Greek children’s book for a small but dedicated Greek publisher. I don’t want to go blathering too much about it before all the details are certain, but I’m incredibly excited about this project. It won’t bring a lot of money, but it will give us the chance to reach an audience and affect them, and the challenge of telling a story that children and adults will both be able to enjoy is one that I look forward to.

I already know the basic story and structure. Yes, it’ll be set somewhere in the Lands of Dream. It’ll involve… I’m not actually telling. Read it when it comes out. Probably this Christmas.

Wait, you don’t speak Greek? Well, I’m sure that in time a translated edition will appear somewhere.

    Aha! In only the last post you mentioned people had said Verena should illustrate a picture book. This sounds like a wonderful (if unexpected) use of the Lands of Dream; I wish you the best of luck.
