I worked a bit on Out of the Ashes last night and today. Still on New Beginnings which is the fifth chapter of Out of the Ashes. I'll probably have to push publication of Broken Borders to next year and that means probably pushing Deer and The Tiger as well as Out of the Ashes back later. I'm also in a rut concerning illustrations for Deer and The Tiger. I cannot draw and I'm used to seeing books with characters in them as an American. In Islam we can't draw images of people, animals or birds as that could promote idolatry. So I need to figure out how to get my children books illustrated without breaking Islamic law.
