My blog intro

Hi there! I'm Julia but I also go by Jules. I am starting this blog as a place in cyberspace to share and express my passions for writing and illustrating children's books, character design, book covers designing, creating and developing interactive digital app books and surface pattern designs. 

I will be cataloging my progress and journey of obtaining each of my goals as I work on different projects.

I am also interested in networking with like-minded individuals who are involved in the publishing industry for children's books.

If you are interested to network with me, please do contact me. I'm always looking to share the latest news and updates of those in the industry.

Thank you for visiting my blog and hope you enjoy all the upcoming posts!

Dr. Mira Reisberg, the founder of CBA and literary agent, is running a new course, “The Pleasures and Craft of Poetic Techniques. She is giving special discounts up till May 5th.

When they gather in groups, their eyes ignite like blazing red spheres lurking out from the shadows. No one knows what the shifters do in their gatherings but many believe they are in search for a new victim. Children, like Hansel and Gretel, have mysteriously turned up missing.
