New Books

Posted by pamela mccoll on Tuesday, December 4, 2018
I always love to work on Christmas books a good two to three years ahead of publication and the best time of the year to do so in during the holiday season. It is in December that the imagination soars. I am planning to publish new Christmas books for for 2020 and in order to do so I have to secure the illustrators within the next several months. That is how long it takes to bring a fully illustrated book to market. Haydon Sundblom was a wonderful illustrator that was secured by Coke for their ads during decades of promotion of their products at Christmas time. I am looking to include his work in a book I am currently developing. His work created an iconic Santa that has been loved for generations for the warmth and joy his Santa expresses. Finding an illustrator who can render such a merry Santa is no easy task but so worth the attempt and I am a getting close with one very special illustrator who is considering the project sitting on my desk. Fingers crossed this comes about in time for Christmas 2020.
