YAY!! I've been waiting and waiting for you to post the big news and nearly let the cat out of the bag on my blog. SO very happy for you Janee! I can't wait for halloween to come along!!

WOOHOO!!!! Yay, Janee!!! I'd like to place a pre-order, please. :-)
Also, love your "How-to" list! Too funny!

How wonderfully exciting and incredible (well not incredible since you are so talented). Congratulations!

Yay Janee!!! I'm so excited for you!!

Congratz! Janee! I am so happy for you! Now, tell us how you did it. Did you sell them on your dummybook with art? Did you sell them on a written manuscript? You say, "adopt." What do you mean by that?

Oohh! Congrats! I do some design work for Patti Ann and she is so wonderful. I would love to hear about your process- and your ghost is just too cute!!!

Congratulations!! That ghost is SO cute! So...boo! ;-)

That is so wonderful! Many congrats to you! I love the instructions. :)

YEEEEHAWWWW!! I'm so proud of you, Mother Hen! You are my role model!! I wanna be just like Janee. Love that little Ghost. He's the cutest thing ever! Teach us, oh wonderful author/illustrator genius. You go girl!!!

Congratulations. How exciting. I've been dying for cute, new Halloween books to come out for children.

Have your publisher drop me an email and I'll review them.


oh Janee this is just wonderful, I'm so happy for you! I can't wait to read them!!!!

YEAH!!!! This is just wonderful news. Congratulations!

WAY TO GO, JANEE!!!!!!!!! But, I am not surprised!

I know you will be famous!

This is great! Congratulations! The character looks so cute.

Congratulations, Janee. That's great news!!!

My imagination is already spinning, wondering what happens when the ghost eats it all (I'm picturing an increasingly large ghost, which leads naturally into the next book where he/she/it discovers a need for a new wardrobe.)
I love the titles, I love the art.

Way to go Janee,

Sooo proud of you, and no you didn't tell your critique group to soon. We were chomping at the bit and crossing our fingers.
Two fingers crossed, 2 books, maybe we should cross our toes too. Then you'll sell 2 more, and you can buy the lattes and the biscottis.


Ha Ha! The instructions cracked me up!! 2 books! I must of missed that, I thought it was only 1. Way to go you deserve it!! Can't wait to get my copies!

Congrats! That's wonderful news! Cute character too.

Janee...the little ghost guy is adorable! No wonder they want to contine his saga! And we know which way YOUR saga is going, too...up, up, UP!! Congrats!!


That is so great, Janee - congrats and many, many more. I'll look for these on the shelves.


Hi Janee,
I just dropped by to check out your blog, and found this wonderful image of the new little Ghost character. He is so cute and friendly. Congratulations on the two books, and what fun to be working with such nice folk.


YIppeeeeeeeeeeee!!! COngratulations! loved your suggestions for celebrating....how fun!
Have a blast on your journey.

That's fantastic, Janee! Congratulations!

Oh my goodness, Janee, that is extraordinary! Wonderful! Happy noises from here too! Yay!!

Yay Janee! Now the world knows! : D

What booootiful news! Congrats. Now stop reading these and get to work!

Thanks for the sneak peek. Boo to you too girl!

Jumping up and down for you! This is so exciting! I can't wait for them to come out so I can read them to my kids! Congratulations!

I've been reading your blog for a while and have found it such an inspiration! I'm SO pleased about your books and hope they are a huge success, as I'm sure they will be!
Take care and best wishes.

Janee, I screamed when my book sold, too. Then I babbled incoherently on the phone. Something about needing a new fridge.
But anyway, C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S !!!
I'm excited for you, and looking forward to sharing marketing ideas.
Get back to work. :)
