Lately, I have been busy working on a story for kids called ‘Happy Face.’ It used to be called ‘When We Were Three,’ and it was an original story commissioned by RTE, here in Ireland.
As a single parent myself I used to be frustrated when so many children’s stories had conventional sets of two sensible parents and few stories had characters who were suffering the trauma of a breakup where one parent decides to leave their family and just simply stop being a parent.
In ‘Happy Face,’ the father has gone to live in another country with a new wife and has had no contact with Samantha, his daughter.
Samantha is desperate for her dad to come back and when her cousin introduces her to a Ouija board she tries to use it to contact him.
‘Happy Face’ was only available to the public as a recording but I have been adapting it to publish as an eBook on Amazon and I am now at the stage where the editing and proofing is done, the cover is ready and so are the images.
In fact the whole thing is almost ready to go except for one problem…
You see I decided to commission some images for the story and asked two different artists to come up with a set of three images each.
Trouble is I wasn’t expecting to like both sets of images and I do! So now I am facing a dilemma. Which set of images do I use? It is not a case of mixing images from each set as they are very different styles and I need to keep it consistent.
I would love to get some feedback from you so I have included them below and called them images A and images B. All comments are very welcome.
Thanks in anticipation,
