Three stories in one fun book!
Silver and Gold by Heather Starnes
THE DOG HAIR MONSTER DID IT! by Paige Miller
Princess Practice by Julianne DiBlasi Black
Both were amazing to work on and inspired a whole new wave of collaboration projects – both as an illustrator and as a co-writer. One of which is a graphic novel with the amazing Angela D’Onofrio!! We are both kind of artsy-fartsy-halloween-y-weirdies so here comes a new creation and something totally off-menu from what I’ve done so far. EVIL. Evil like there has never been. A darkness that claws from the shadows of your stretched and cracking mind that will never-ever leave you! Woah. Fuzzy bunnies, baby, fuzzy bunnies. Look for it. If you dare, of course.
Oh- also! I was asked to be on the Story Monsters Ink Magazine staff as a book reviewer! Stacks and stacks of lovelies are on their way to my PO box as we speak! Can’t wait to have the opportunity to give some shout outs of great upcoming kids books :)
Kingdom of Cool is in full swing!
If you aren’t familiar with my Kingdom of Cool characters or the story behind them, please see my Patreon page here: https://www.patreon.com/julianneblack
The Princesses will be my focus for this year’s Camp NaNoWriMo! If you are camping this year, look me up so we can bunk!
And… oh right. Moving again. This will be my third time applying for a FL drivers license. MA, FL, CA, TX, CA, FL, CA, FL is, I think, the score so far. Should be interesting. I continue to exist as a digital entity for the most part, but if you need my mailing address the current physical mailing address of http://www.JulianneBlack.com is 1497 Main Street, Suite 191, Dunedin FL 34698. Leaving Monday for the next new adventure. And reviewing. And graphic novelist, and so much more!
