Today is the release day for Zetta Elliott’s A WISH AFTER MIDNIGHT (encore edition). Since I can’t be there (NYC) to help celebrate her at the launch party, I will have a cupcake here in her honor. A little background on the book, Zetta self-published AWAM in 2009 under her own Rosetta Press through Amazon’s self-publishing program. After selling over 500 copies on her own, she was approached by Amazon’s publishing company, Amazon Encore, to redesign and package the book and be sold through all Amazon avenues, Kindle, paperback, etc. As you may already know, I had the honor of illustrating Zetta’s first picturebook, BIRD, and helped design the original cover for AWAM (I say “helped”, because Zetta supplied the vision and pictures for the original cover). It has been a pleasure watching this book grow and I am looking forward to seeing how far Zetta soars~
