Book Update! 1/28/19
It is almost here! Can you believe it! I am so excited!
I have seen glimpses of it on West Margin Books' twitter and on a display at the ALAMW '19 conference. I want to hold one in my hands!
My book was listed by Publisher's Weekly in a sneak peek of books coming out in the spring of 2019 (February 19th). Scroll down to Graphic Arts Books to see Pedro's Pan and other Alaskan authors.
I had an awesome time this summer traveling around this summer getting photos and information for my website and book release. I was able to take my wife on a quick tour of Fairbanks and was able to get out and do some panning myself.
We also had a great trip to Los Angeles where we spent some time exploring Disneyland as well as attending the annual Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators conference.
We had a great time relaxing and getting inspired!
We are getting ever closer to the release of Pedro's Pan. Jacob Souva has done an amazing job with the illustrations.
As we get closer, join my twitter feed @Lasley_Matt for details, information and giveaway announcements!
