Both books will be illustrated chapter books geared for children, but of course they can be enjoyed by all ages as the love of pugs has no age limit. The story will follow a mostly fictional account of Sunny's and Rosy's sibling rivalry adventures. And I know what you're wondering and yes, there will be plenty of drumstick attacks in the books.
I know 2018 seems like forever away. It feels like that for me too! But, on the other hand, I'm grateful for the time to work on these two books as they'll involve a lot of illustrations. A LOT.
The official announcement can be found in Publishers Weekly with a photo of me (I know, I know. I'm no longer anonymous). I tried submitting a photo of the pugs instead of me, but that didn't fly.
The first book will be coming out in spring 2018 and the second one will be coming out in fall 2018. The deal is for two books, but if these two do really well then future books in a continued series could be a likely outcome. And doesn't the world need more pugs and, specifically, more Sunny and Rosy?
I'll continue to post my drawings here on this blog, but both real work and now book work has been taking up a good amount of my time. I'll also post some progress posts on my social media accounts if you want to discover this process with me because all of this is so new and exciting and terrifying for me!
Thank you to everyone who visits this blog and for your continued support. It's been a long and interesting journey!
For the sake of nostalgia, look at how much my drawing style has changed from my first post here on Bah Humpug.
My pugs have definitely gotten "fluffier" since then.
