Supporting Friends Friday: Andrea the Illustrator’s Children’s Book

I should probably not trumpet so triumphantly and assuredly the death or hiatus of any given thing, especially as it pertains to this blog.  I’d decided to give Support Friends Friday a rest for a bit—and I did, for two weeks!—because I was running out of friends to support.  At least, I was running low on new friend-generated content to champion.

Then good old Andrea the Illustrator went and published a book with a bunch of contributors.  It’s called Creative Gems, Volume I, and it’s out in paperback, hardcover, and Kindle editions now.

The premise is simple:  back in March, Andrea invited readers to contribute short stories for a children’s book collection.  Andrea would illustrate the stories with her signature, child-friendly illustrations.

Response, it seems, was enthusiastic, with over twenty author submitting stories.  The eagerness to contribute looks like it will also result in a second volume, so unless Creative Gems, Volume I becomes like The Honeydrippers: Volume I (there was never a The Honeydrippers: Volume II, unfortunately), we should be seeing more from Andrea and her contributors soon.

That’s wonderful news.  For the lady that drew Oddish for me, I want nothing but the best!

Pick up Creative Gems, Volume I now in paperback, hardcover, and Kindle editions.
