On Monday morning, the plan was, to get the last few illustrations done for JJJ Explores The Ocean and then get it published...
However, for some reason, my brain decided to set me a creative challenge... To write, illustrate and publish a JJJ story with a Halloween theme, in just ONE WEEK!
It had to be done in a week, maybe 10 days, to ensure it hit the online shelves with enough time for customers to buy it and have it delivered before October 31st.
I thought about it... briefly contemplated the work load I would have to undertake... Writing the story... probably drawing 12-15 illustrations for the inner pages... designing the front and back cover etc and then obviously the listing stuff at the end.
It was definitely going to be a challenge but my thinking was, if I want to add a Halloween book to the range, I either rise to the challenge or wait for best part of a year and release it for 2023. Well, why wait, why not jump on the chance right now, while the ideas are buzzing about in my bonce and just do the damn thing!
So I did!
On Monday morning, the countdown began.... one week and counting.... tick tick tick...
It is now Friday morning, 4 and a bit days on from when I started... and IT IS DONE!

Oh, and here's the blurb about the book...
It was 31st October and that could mean only one thing!
Halloween was one of Jeremy’s favourite days of the year. The day was always filled with lots of exciting activities in preparation for an evening of spooky events. This year was going to be no different.
Join Jeremy and Sammy as they go Halloween shopping, decorate the house, carve pumpkins, create a costume for Sammy without even trying, go trick or treating around the neighbourhood and then find out just what was lurking at the end of the street, that made them run for their lives!
