Just one more sleep!

Sometimes it amazes me how quickly things happen.

Last Wednesday, during #kidlitchat on Twitter, the lovely Karen Collum asked if any picture book authors would be interested in a Twitter chat for picture books only. I was… (she knew that) others were… (we hoped so) and now it’s happening (amazing!) – tomorrow! (If you want a job done, get Karen on board. She is ‘D’ynamite.)

I was delighted when Karen asked if I would co-host the #pblitchat with her. It’s something we’re both passionate about. And it’s also a natural extension of our growing communication about kidlit, picture books and life in general. (It’s really NOT just another excuse to tweet and email. Honest!)

If you’re a picture book author or illustrator, you are invited to join us. It gets a bit tricky advertising the times (because the chat is world wide) but check out the Picture Books Only web page for more specific times around the globe – and coming discussion topics.

One hour of chatter about picture books – the craft, the market, the passion… Count me in!

Just one more sleep…

Tuesdays at midday Queensland-time. On Monday for those in USA.

I am an aspiring picturebook writer with some magazine credits just no picture book contract yet. I know it is coming and I am more than willing to work for it.

My Favorites:

I love the children's movies Wizard of Oz and the Neverending Story. Both movies make me feel the lesson that hope is alive and well. After seeing UP this past week, it just might have a chance at being added to this list.

I love the cool colors of blues and purples.Those colors are peaceful for me.

I love The Velveteen Rabbit. Even as an adult, I still feel the urge to cry when he becomes real. I know, silly, but a good book can make me laugh and cry as it takes me on a magical journey.
