BREAKING NEWS: Daniel and I get a Picture Book Deal!

Today's Publisher's Marketplace announcement:

Lenore Appelhans writing as Lenore Jennewein and IS YOUR BUFFALO READY FOR KINDERGARTEN? illustrator Daniel Jennewein's CHICK-O-SAURUS REX, the humorous story of a little chick who proves his mettle to the farm's big bullies when he discovers that he has a very mighty lineage, to Alexandra Cooper at Simon & Schuster's Children's, by Stephen Barbara at Foundry Literary + Media (NA).


Yes - Daniel and I are finally able to share one of our picture book creations with the reading public and we are super excited!


We started on the picture book collaboration path way back in 2004 and it's just lovely to see this dream finally coming true.  Look for it in Spring/Summer 2013!
