Drum roll, please…

Thanks to everyone who took the time to cast a vote in yesterday’s cover illustration poll. Option A2 was the overwhelming choice for our WriteShop Primary Book A cover. Just take a look at what a splash of color and a hint of shading can do to a simple sketch! And when Deborah’s whimsical artwork is paired with David Borrink’s delightful layout design, we end up with a most appealing cover for the first book of the K-2nd grade series.

So here it is…the unveiling of the cover for WriteShop Primary Book A!

It’s adorable, which doesn’t surprise me since my sister did the artwork ;). I’m thrilled to pieces that she’s gotten some work through CSP.
