Each week I will blog on the progress of Holly Wild, the characters, the setting, the plot and how this indy book will be put together. So after twenty plus revisions, my editorial team decided to go with the new ms. (manuscript). And let me tell you how many gazillions of illustrations that girl HW (Holly Wild) has me doing.
Who is Holly Wild? Well, if you haven't heard or seen hints of her by now, she is a feisty, earthy (muddy, dirty, scraped-up), ten-year old, in hiking boots and auburn hair (she hates being called a red-head or maybe she hates it when her ultimate enemy, Ivy Buckthorn calls her that).
|HOLLY H. WILD: Curious, mischievous and always at my side. Did I mention annoying? (But, only to me.)|
|HOLLY H. WILD: Brave, creative, inventive and knows no danger--or at least doesn't recognize it.|
|HOLLY H. WILD: Determined and focused (for maybe ten seconds)|
Look out Michigan--this is one kid to watch for this September in HOLLY WILD: Bamboozled on Beaver Island. She just might have your kids getting dirty, poking things with a stick and searching for "herps"and asking, "What does the H. in Holly H. Wild, stand for?)"
