Several people have been emailing me about my 52 Crows project from 2018, so here's a quick update.
When I started the 52 Crows, I never dreamt of turning it into a book, the whole project was just about connecting people (and as I was new to Twitter), I wanted to see if it would have a positive impact. Needless to say I was overwhelmed by the response. Lots of people, not just writers suggested that I should look into turning the project into a book, which I did.
Unfortunately I quickly realised that a book of 52 stories with illustrations would be extremely expensive to print - theres just too many pages!!
But not wanting to give up on this idea I have started to consider a slightly different approach, just 12 stories (1200 words) or poems with 24 illustrations - it makes the project a lot more manageable.
I’m not romantic about this, the book might take years to complete, after all I still need to eat etc, so I have to be very careful about the stories I include. Having said that I’m very excited and keep on drawing pictures in my mind, desperately trying to find the time to get them down on paper.
Will keep you all posted.
