I'm sorry that I posted such an inaccurate guesstimate re THT's publication date.
Short version? The complexities of GIMP--the graphics software for the cover--shut down my wild-eyed optimism. I thought I had two options:
pay lots to an expert GIMPer to resuscitate bits and pieces of cover
postpone publication until I had learned GIMP.
Do you remember a certain SF actor demanding, "I want that third alternative!" ?
Enter Grace! aka the superhero known as "The Third Alternative!" Yippee!
I'm not making predictions this time... Just looking forward to the moment Tree House Tales pops into existence!
