    Paola, I`m so glad I stopped by cause I wasn`t really tuned into the fact that these amazing pictures would be part of a book. It`s an awesome undertaking doing an illustrated childrens’ book and I can fully understand the butterflies. But looking at the pictures, I don`t see how it could be anything but a success. The characters look like they would appeal to generations of kids, as well as their parents, and your style and tasteful use of processing makes the whole series look compelling enough to me to ask you to please let us know when the book is published and up for sale. Lovely work, can`t wait to hear how it tuens out!

    Billy you made my day :)….thank you so very much :)…..I always look forward to your encouraging comments and support :)……this work has been going on for several months now…in total there are 26 images and 1000 words…..some of the images have been alot of work and many mistakes made along the way…..I see something in my mind and i play around with it until i can achieve in photoshop……some images took about 2 weeks to produce ….I was editing the story for a couple of months…trying really hard not to loose the story …..the ending has to get tighting up once that is done it will be finished…and then i will be able to submit..publishing houses want picture books full completed before submitting…i also have to sign a contract with the designer of the toy rocket…and i have come to dead end with Lilliputs copyright…i emailed several places to see who owns copyright..each one saying they did not and would pass me on to someone else…my last contact was in shanghai…i emailed them a few weeks ago but no response…i was told by many though that no one has ownership to his copyright…for now promising………and now i am reading and reading ….I have to read books from various houses and letting them know which ones i read and why i think my story would fit their criteria…….lots of reading…..:)…..the kids love it…we get lots of books (we are a family of bookworms lol ) …..there are some really good books out there…loads of humor in them….there is one Ireland and I read all the time “Oliver has something to say”…it is so funny….everyone thinks the child is introverted but really the family always speaks for him..so when he starts talking and stand up for himself he lets it out.. it is really funny…..anyhoo….i am truly excited about the book….and the possiblitiy of rejection is the only thing that scares me….I am hoping that they see it as a very strong book filled with imagination and fun of course :)….that any generation would love it….Lilliput has come back to life ….:)….crossing my fingers :)…..thank you Billy for your wonderful comments :) :)

    I just think these images are totally awesome! Ever since I saw the first one you posted up here. The little peace dove is perfect – it brings science and God together, uniting the whole world! Well done!

    I have to agree with everyone else… there is no way this book will not be picked up by a publisher. The illustrations are brilliant and the story sounds fantastic. There’s always the self publishing way, using a regular printer or Lulu or Blurb. But however Lilliput gets to print, I hope it will be a fantastic success and I wish you all the best!!

  • Thank you very much georgiegirl :)….i truly appreciate the support and encourgement!! :)….i am taking a writing course right now to improve my story…tighten it up…..and then i want to have a go at a publishing house…i was thinking about self publishing but my heart says to try a few places first….my fingers are crossed :)…
