  1. delightful work–she captures the word shark essence perfectly. 🙂

  2. Love seeing two talented friends in the same post!

  3. I’ve only ‘met’ Janice on fb, but she’s been warm and charming, and is obviously very talented! I felt an immediate connection to her, as she lives in one of my very favorite spots on earth (I spent summers as a kid in Harbor Springs, and still get there as often as I can–and particularly love autumn up there). Gorgeous shark, Karen!

  4. Some of my virtual friends are the warmest, most supportive people I know! Thanks, Vaughn. One of these days, I hope to get to your neck of the woods. I have never been in your state.

  5. Thank you, Karen, for this lovely post and providing links to Mark’s site and mine. I’m so glad we have connect over our mutual love of books, writing, and editing.

    Vaughn, what a kind comment! You might already know that Mark and I just moved to Harbor Springs this past April. (Mark spent many happy summers on Drummond Island, so we were drawn to this area.) If you ever get up this way, please let me know. We’d love to meet with you. Same goes for you, Karen. We could have a happy meet-up!

  6. Shawn, thank you for your comment. I’m about to peruse your delightful site! Wow!

  7. What a treat to “meet” so many talented people through your site, Karen. You are a master connector! Janice, I’ve started an Evernote note on book designers (with your name first) so I’ll find it again if I ever get that book out of my head.

  8. I just love connecting people that can help one another … writers, editors and proofreaders, connectors, illustrators, artists, musicians…it gives me the warm fuzzies.

    I really love this shark and the letters.
