I just got this lovely note of support from a Facebook friend after I wrote in response to my efforts on my work-in-progress graphic easy reader: I will be the first person in line to buy the easy reader graphic not a novel for my young readers who love this format. Thank you!

For writers, we who peck away at our stories in isolation and quiet, it is so gratifying to get notes like this!

This particular project is very challenging – it’s a completely different mindset than doing a picture book. Every moment can be illustrated, like frames in a movie…I find it much more difficult than picture books – and there are zillions more illustrations! I’ve finished the writing, but I need to illustrate it fully before submitting it to an editor and keep getting stumped.

So thank you for the input!
