The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark

The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark  (1988) Post 407

 The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark is one of a couple of books I did about animals being afraid of unlikely things. I have never seen a copy, so have no idea what the published text is like, but in the manuscript copy I have little Owl wants to fly with her friend the barn owl but- she's afraid of the dark. Moon helps out. 

Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.
