The first few weeks since Love Is in the Air published have been super fun, super exciting. We receive great pictures texted to us from friends and family around the country who have so kindly ventured out to bookstores to pick up a copy. Here’s one from our dear friends, the C—– family who may or may have not engaged in a little “criminal reshelving.” That’s the practice of artfully promoting your loved one’s books to the front row. Ahem, totally not condoning the practice but….thanks ya’ll!
Other Fenske news: Jonathan heads into the studio tomorrow with Room 214 for some visual scribe work. That’s where he sits and draws and they take like a million pictures of him and then editors stitch it all together into something really cool. He’s also doing painting commissions, per usual. He’s currently working on a commission of an Andy Warhol portrait and the other day, Jonathan had a slip of the tongue and called it an “Einstein portrait.” We both giggled because there’s kind of a big difference.
Jennifer (that’s me!) is scheduling children’s book blogger visits for Jonathan. Jodie from the awesome young readers blog Growing Book by Book has graciously agreed to post about Love Is in the Air; writing coach and all-around awesome author Rochelle Melander will also have Jonathan do some guest posts in February and then again in May.
I also work on Fat and Appy each day. Still find it crazy that we have an iPad app for sale on the App Store. Wild! People ask me what our next app will be and I think definitely ebooks. We both love children’s books so much and it would be a cinch to take Jonathan’s orphaned books and turn them into digital wonders. First, though, we have to get through promotion for Guppy Up! which comes out next month.
