I'll keep this short and sweet. Today, I hit the send button on my first picture book submission, PIG TAIL BLUES AND UGLY SHOES. It's the poetically humorous story of a 7-year-old African-American girl, Lulu, who wakes up on the first day of second grade to a hair disaster and the ugliest shoes she's ever seen. Can she live up to the "big girl" hype and get her hair done before her mother threatens to take over? Will she really have to wear those ugly shoes? Did her bed really swallow her barrettes? And will she make it to school on time?
Want to read more? Then start praying for the publishing gods to show mercy on an aspiring author, or Lulu might not see the light of day!
