The last several days have been stress-filled and busy, but the result of all the work and frustration was that yesterday the new edition of Cherry Blossoms in Twilight was uploaded to the printer! There will be a new and improved cover, more illustrations, more songs, black and white photos of Japan and a glossary/index. I was able to pull a more stories from my mother and added a lot more historical detail. This new Cherry Blossoms edition should be perfect for use in upper elementary through middle school grades yet still attract an older audience. I hope to provide a learning experience for children and young adults and a flame that will light the memories of older people who have their own stories to tell.
