Lost in Lexicon: Second Edition

The second edition of Lost in Lexicon, written by Penny Noyce, made its debut just this week. The book, featuring a new cover, is the first in a series of four "Lexicon" adventures that will be published by Scarletta Press.

It's been just about a year since I finished the illustrations for the first edition, which came out in Fall of 2010 under the Tumblehome Press imprint. It was an auspicious beginning for first-time author Penny Noyce; the book received glowing reviews, won several awards, and then, to top it all off, was chosen to serve as the debut novel for Scarletta's new line of books for children.

Now the fun begins again - we're off and running on the second installment in the series: The Ice Castle. Penny has turned in the final draft of the manuscript and I've finished the first round of sketches and have made a tentative start on the cover. The Ice Castle will be published in the Fall of 2012.
