Children's Book: My 2014 New Year's Resolution

Firstly, Happy 2014! I don't know about you, but I'm betting this year is going to be a fantastic one.

Now onto business. It was just the other day that I tweeted I had yet to decide on a resolution. While last year's was to publish The Nobodies (which I finally did!), I have no book ready for publication and certainly none of my novels will be ready until 2015 at the earliest.

While there are many things to be done, and many things I intend to accomplish during the next year, I wanted something important, something meaningful, to be behind my resolution. That's why, following a discussion I had with my cousin Michael regarding a desire to draw that sparked my own needs once more, my 2014 resolution is a fun one:

Prepare a query for my children's book and send it out to agents.

This seems simple and a no-brainer, but it actually requires a good deal of work, including finalizing the text and page count, sketching all of the pages, and completing the art on at least two. That's on top of finally getting my computer repaired, since my preferred method of artistry following basic design is digital. Until that's complete (who knows when that will be), I'll be doing pencil layouts on the comic boards I bought way back when for those few pages of The Nobodies I felt like drawing.

Bet you thought I forgot about this book, huh? Well, as they say, no good idea ever dies....
