It will be a children's picture book called, Janoose & The Fall Feather Fair and it's a sequel for my first children's book, Janoose The Goose. This book I
co-wrote with my grandson, Luke when he was seven year old. In the book, the Fox returns to Free Range Farm and he wants something from Janoose. All the sketching for the book are finished and just need to be painted.
I'm currently finishing a book of my short stories: Short Stories and Other Imaginings For The Reading Spot. The book is being edited now and next I will put it together and be designing it before it goes to the printer.
Then I'll begin painting Janoose & The Fall Feather Fair.

Thank you for asking! ~JD(less)

Character Quote: From Living In The Back Up Plan, Part 10-C

Just as Danie would have exited from the rack of clothing with the barrister in toe one of the G men blocked them. She darted in another direction but the other man appeared seizing her arm as he began to speak. She dropped her hold

Writer's block is a tough one. I experienced it after finishing a long novel that took me years to write. Writing is so much about the journey, but once a work is completed, I am very much with Truman Capote who said: "Finishing a book is just like y See Irma’s answer.

“I opened a book and in I strode.
Now nobody can find me.
I've left my chair, my house, my road,
My town and my world behind me.
I'm wearing the cloak, I've slipped on the ring,
I've swallowed the magic potion.
I've fought with a dragon, dined with a king
And dived in a bottomless ocean.
I opened a book and made some friends.
I shared their tears and laughter
And followed their road with its bumps and bends
To the happily ever after.
I finished my book and out I came.
The cloak can no longer hide me.
My chair and my house are just the same,
But I have a book inside me.”

“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for a bird to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”
