Where’s my Caterpickles?

Hi all,

The Ten-Year-Old was lecturing me the other day about how I haven’t posted nearly enough interesting stuff on Caterpickles this summer. Apparently, she has time to read Caterpickles now, and was disappointed to find I haven’t answered her question about which modern instrument evolved from the sackbut yet.

She wanted to know what I’d been doing instead, and when I told her, said, “Mommyo, you should let everyone else know that, too.”

Ok. Here’s what I’ve been doing instead.

That’s right. I’m having a book. It’s about how even artistically inept parents like me can use public art to nurture their children’s love of art and to get them engaged with their community.

If you’re thinking, that’s a weird size for a book cover, you’re right. The cover isn’t finished yet, so this is a peek at one of the proposed interior spreads.

While The Ten-Year-Old has been off at summer camp, I’ve been working like mad to finalize the copy and book design with my design team. We’re almost there. You’ll be the first to know when the book’s finally out later this summer.

In the meantime, thanks for your patience with the intermittent blogging here at Caterpickles Central.

About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, muse about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
