ABC OAKLAND: Sneak Peek!

A silence fell over Wertz's social media presence. For months.

What was it? What was happening?

What is the sound of one page turning?

It is a book. This book. ABC OAKLAND. A new kids' book for Heyday Books, written and illustrated by yours truly. It's been a long time in the making, and it's getting close to being finished.

Here's a sneaky peek at a few of the images. I'm excited about this.
