Happy New Year - News

Happy New Year - News

Hello there, I wish you an amazing 2013. Eight months have passed since my last journal entry, so I'm still alive and a lot of great things have happened last year. I got married and I finished a new book. I tried once more to find a literary agent and I wish I'm more lucky this time; if not, I will try to write another book until I find an agent and a big publisher and to pursue my dream. Stay tuned for more news and art! hugs, Marilena Twitter :http://twitter.com/marilenamexi My blog:http://marilenamexi.blogspot.gr/ FB Like page:http://www.facebook.com/pages/Marilena-Mexi-illustrator/14008017405 Copyrights Notice very very importan
