Back in January when the wind was blowing strong and the temperatures dropped into the minuses, I braved the cold to hang out at my adopted* parents
house and write a book about (what else?) the Ice Age.
Actually, it’s about the animals of the Ice Age. I learned so crazy much during the week. My lovely parents had already done all the research for the book and it was my job to help decide how to tell the story. Plus of course I threw in my cool (< haha) little ideas about the book having a cave bear showing up throughout the book and doing things like drinking hot chocolate. (Really, you’ll just have to read the book for yourself when it’s released…)
All work and no play? No, never! 🙂
Believe me, people, there were some crazy animals during the Ice Age. Armadillo-like creatures the size of a small car? Yep. Wooly Mammoths found standing upright? Not even kidding. Saber tooth tigers? Those things freaked me out as a child, much the same way as monsters do the average kid. But they were real.
So, why am I brining up the subject of the book today? Of course it could be just because I’m a random little thing. Or maybe I couldn’t think of anything to post today. Or maybe it’s really hot here today and I’m trying to forget about the heat by talking about the Ice Age. Or maybe…
WE SIGNED THE CONTRACT FOR OUR ICE AGE BOOK THIS WEEK. Um yeah, I think that just might be the reason. Can y’all believe it? I’m so excited! (And goodness, aren’t I good at not telling the news until I’m allowed to?)
So, who’s publishing it? Master Books, which is a part of New Leaf Publishing and also the world’s largest creation-based publisher. Master Books has been around since 1975 and has published a lot of Answers in Genesis books. I’m so very happy about this!
I can’t hardly wait to share the title and the cover of the book with y’all. The book is supposed to be released sometime next year, but we’re not sure about the exact dates yet. My dad did the illustrations for the book and they’re really cute! Here’s one, just to kinda tide you over until I have more I’m able to share with you. 😉
