I’m new to Blogging and the publishing industry, but I’ve got good reference books and sites on how to go about it.
I’m a 12 year veteran of the Navy, and have worked in the medical field for 17 years. Due to burn out and just needing a change, I’ve turned to writing and illustrating, as I’ve been told my animal paintings should be sold and not simply given away; Instead of just painting pictures and selling them, it seems more interesting to incorporate my animal stories and illustrations into a book.
My main interests are animals and farm life. The title of my first book, still in its initial stages, is Fowl Play at the Fair, involving chickens, ducks, goats and geese. It is based on a real farm on Martha’s Vineyard which streams during daylight hours. Almost all of them are named by my chicken chat friends and I.
I will post what I have completed so far, as well as other chicken artwork I’ve done for friends. More posts with images will follow as the book progresses. Enjoy!
