Another Book Bites the Dust…

I just got word that my very first picture book, Two Tales of Hawai’i (Island Heritage Publishing), is going out of print. I’m saddend, but I know I shouldn’t be surprised. Given the current economy, book publishers are forced to take a much harder look at what they’re keeping in print and what they’re letting go. And Two Tales has been in print since 2003, so it’s outlived many other picture books.

But still…it was my first “baby” in print and I’m left with a hollowness inside, as I envision it taking wing and joining all the other out-of-print titles in “book heaven.”
