In a week my exhibition of picture book art at Newby Hall ends and I've just heard that the Seven Stories Children's Book Centre have bought the artwork of these three pages of Selkie.  I'm thrilled and will be donating the dummy and a sketch book to go with them.

  2. Thanks, Candy. And I'm looking forward to your great launch which isn't long now.

  3. That's wonderful news, Gillian. Seven Stories is magical, and will be all the more so with your artwork in place.
