To my surprise he is leaving me in a bit of a bind where as the new Christmas book is concerned as he has decided not to complete the illustrations, which is leaving not only myself in a bind but printers and publishers whom have already extended his deadline. As well he has mentioned that he has no plans to fulfill our already booked engagements.
Although his presence will be missed we will press on and continue to make a difference, changes for our young and our not so very young for the better. Everything happens for a reason I continue to believe. I am taking a telephone conference with Derek at some point today to wrap up any loose ends that I can have him commit to.
We have Veronica The Storyteller and her three brand new children's books to look forward to soon, so brighter days ahead for Angels of Inspiration!
