If you had visited my website (www.briannacaplansayres.com) yesterday (or any day before then), you would have seen a beautiful blue sky with two lovely trees and one yellow digger busily digging away.
But if you visit my website now, you will see a beautiful blue sky with two lovely trees and one yellow digger busily digging away PLUS one fierce T-Rex putting her tiara on and off and one sweet steam train puff-puff puffing away. (Huge thanks to Jeffrey Duckworth for these awesome new animations!)
The addition of these two new animated gifs means a lot to me. It all goes back to my initial vision for my website...
When I first envisioned the site, I pictured a very happy "Briannaland". (Yes, I am silly.) Basically that beautiful background would become a home for little graphics related to all the books I would publish someday.
And so I started with a graphic for my first book, WHERE DO DIGGERS SLEEP AT NIGHT?-- a busy yellow digger. In one way, it looked perfect, but... in another way it looked sort of lonely.
Would my yellow digger ever be joined by other graphics? Would I someday have more books to make graphics for? I wondered and I hoped and I wrote...
So today I am super happy that that wonderful digger has two "friends" joining him on my website. The T-Rex with the tiara is for my upcoming picture book, TIARA SAURUS REX (coming out in February! Yay!) and the happy, puffing steam train is for my upcoming companion book to DIGGERS, WHERE DO STEAM TRAINS SLEEP AT NIGHT?.
The site is getting pretty busy! Yay!
But, like most writers, I can't wait to make it even busier! Definitely a fun way to track my writing progress!
