It’s Out of Our Hands Now

July 6, 2010

The cover of Terra Tempo

Today we sent seven copies of Terra Tempo to our agent Mary Kole of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. She’s going to go to bat for us this summer and aim for the fences with some great names in publishing. It wouldn’t be prudent to go rattling off those names just yet, but we here at Craigmore Creations are pleased.

It’s been great to watch this project grow. From the initial seed of thought and inspiration, to the assembling of the team, to the many drafts, to anticipation of goals being realized! It’s quite a process.

I wish Terra Tempo well and pray that it find the right publishing house to settle in to! We’ve all worked hard on it and now it’s out in the world, off to make a name.

Here in Portland, we’re busy with Terra Tempo Two. Chris has been putting more detail into the illustrations and as a team, Erica, Chris and I have hit our stride. This next project will be awe inspiring, full of creatures from the Cambrian to the Cretaceous!

Good Luck to Mary and Terra Tempo! We’re cheering for you as we plow ahead with the next installation of the series!



  1. very cool! now did you guys do all the prepress work for this?

    we are doing a workbook that will use a virtual world for field trips and have the in-house skills to do it all in Illustrator and were curious of your experience!

    thanks and the very best of luck! your drawing style is awesome!

    • Yes we do! Any particular questions you have please ask. Thanks for the compliments! I’ll pass them along to illustrator Chris!

  2. that is phenomenal! i have been doing a lot of self-education – getting ISBN numbers, drilling and binding manually, and so on

    since it is a workbook to write in, coil or wire binding (not plastic comb) may be better suited. but their are so many factors involved

    online publishers seem okay, but costly and we don’t need many elements included in their packages (like layout, cover design, or even social media – we kind of have a pretty good handle on those issues)

    so how did you end up printing it? offset or digital and via an online publisher or straight to a printer?

    thank you for your insight and i wish you all the best in all of your endeavors =)
