Book launch for the Adventures of the Belmonsters is on in November. I am very proud to have been a part of the talented local collaborative of Bemontites who came together every week over three months to plan, plot, write, and draw the characters for this book. We had a wonderful time pulling this together and enjoyed the many writing and design lectures by Cam and Bailey who wrapped the whole thing up in the end, working their magic to turn this into a wonderful children’s book.
(That’s my monster–the orange one on the right!)

And yes, the City of Belmont did make a typo below! And yes, I have let them know, because no one can proof-read their own work well, but after my editing unit at uni, other people’s mistakes glare into my eyes like sunlight off asphalt on a hot day in Summer!
