Illustrating My First Book “Secret Under the Apple Tree” by Heather Stinnett


This is my next adventure! I’m illustrating my story, Secret Under the Apple Tree. I’ve mentioned this on my about page, and now  I’ve started the expedition!  I’m very excited to be sharing this project with you!  I’m planning on self publishing it. I’ll let you know what company I use. This first illustration here will be my front cover. Any tips on illustrating or publishing would be very appreciated!
