Little update on @princessgenevievebook. I got my first draft of layout back from the printing company and didn’t LOVE the final look, which is a bit of a bummer.
So I went back to my amazing designer @fireflygraphicdesign (who did not do the layout, I must clarify) and she is creating some more images for the book and editing others.
I’m not going to rush the process and won’t print until I am totally 1,000 percent obsessed in love with everything.
There’s so much to think about when writing and self-publishing a children’s book. Totally different than when I wrote @trashthedressmovement. I’m learning as I go and will be way better prepared for my next book (cause you know now I must write one for Luca!).
In the meantime, we’re gearing up the website and I have been working on media mailers and THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who has submitted a quote for “What does girl power mean to you?” It’s going to help me get this project off the ground. I would still love quotes from women and also young girls! Will share more soon.
Email joelle @joellesperanza.comwith your response and photo.
Lesson Learned from this Story: Creating a children’s book takes vision for art and story…. and it might be smart to have your story finalized before you start the art process. ….
