One Word


2011,  I can't say I am sorry to see you go!   You were a sucky year career-wise, filled with a lot of frustration and  disappointment.  You took all the joy out of the publication process for me.

But 2012 is going to be different.  I can feel it.  If I have to pick one word to encapsulate my vision for 2012 it is PSYCHED.

I am feeling very optimistic about 2012 sales and super pumped up about my upcoming Fall release!

For a sneak peek at THE THREE NINJA PIGS and several other amazing 2012 picture books, check out this trailer:




2012, the adventure begins!!!

I know it's silly, but I love even years. It's not that I believe in luck or anything...I just like even. So I too am looking forward to the adventure of 2012!

Aw, Corey! Sorry it was a sucky year for you. Glad you're psyched now. You SHOULD be with a book coming out this year! Love the trailer. YOUR BOOK LOOKS FANTASTIC! Yay!

I would be thrilled to have a book contract this year.

Sounds like 2012 is starting off well. Have a great one.

When our latest collaboration sells, perhaps you will look back and see 2011 a little differently.

Are those the coolest ninja pigs in the world or what??? OMG! I want to get my hands on it right now!!

Do you know the release date, yet?

And for the record, I am kind of glad 2011 is over, too. Stressful year, full of too much change.

Take care,

Shelley

I hope 2012 rocks your socks off, Corey! And I hope under-appreciated masterpieces get the accolades they deserve! ;)

I cannot agree enough with this post. 2011 was rough. But 2012 is shaping up to be a mighty fine year. :)

Sorry 2011 was such a rough year for you. :( I know you are going to have a great year this year...full of book launches and signing. :)
