The Metropolitan Museum, Anubis and Me

I really can't believe that I forgot to post about this but my wonderful editor at Boyds Mill Press, Larry Rosler, got Dr. Janice Kamrin, associate curator of the Egyptian Galleries at THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART to vett my upcoming Anubis book. 

(And yes, I know putting things in all caps is the equivalent of yelling, but seriously, that needed to be yelled because, uhm, THE MET!).

So yeah. That happened. She told my editor that she really enjoyed Anubis Speaks! and that the research I'd put into it really showed. Squeeeee!

Now I have fantasies of walking into the Metropolitan Museum and finding my book there. Swooooon. There's no guarantee, but still. A gal can dream.

I know one thing--it would make Anubis himself very happy. You can tell by that delicious grin reflected in the Tut mask via fab illustrator Antoine Revoy

I seriously cannot wait for this book to come out.  October--just around the corner!
