My Sister Has A Big Black Beard is finished!


And the winner is...........







Using this background and other odds and ends, the cover has finally been all put together and sent off...and approved...so now Duncan Ball and I sit back and wait to look at the final version of it and the internal illustrations before they are sent off to the printer who will go mad and make thousands of books.

It’s scary knowing that if there is a mistake, it turns into thousands of mistakes...so a this stage everybody is looking with eagle-eyes for anything not quite right. It’s still amazing how things can slip through, though.

So...although this is just a rough rough version and the writing on the back is not exactly what will be there and is all messy because it got wrecked with some sticky tape, here is the cover!!! YAY!!!!!
