Questions about Maggie

Last December I signed a book contract for my picture book.  I'm so excited!! Friends and family are genuinely interested and have been asking me all kinds of questions about the story.

Here's a sampling of some of their questions followed by my answers:

What age is it written for?  The age group for the book is 4 - 8.

Are you going to illustrate it?  No, the publishing house will select the illustrator.

What is the title?  The working title is MAGGIE AND THE SUMMER VACATION SHOW AND TELL.

When will it be published?  The book will be published late July or August of 2017.

What's the story about:  This picture book is about an adorable dog, a poison dart frog, a set of dentures, and a little girl with a big school problem.

Can I get an autographed copy?  Of course:)

Is there a book two?  Book two is in the works.

What was your inspiration?  Six years ago I met a special dog named Charlie.  Trooper, Maggie's dog is based on this real life canine who was rescued by a friend of mine.

Do you have a question about Maggie?  Please leave a comment.

    Randi, I stumbled across your blog, by way of another, and clicked until I discovered the Maggie Project. Congrats on your contract! I missed out on the first leg of your journey, but I am very much looking forward to following along now. I'm looking forward to learning more about your projects! I'm just starting out... sounds like my blog is much like the original Maggie Project. I sure hope I find the same success!
