Thanks for stopping by my blog, Big Kids Writing for Little Kids! It's been a while since I posted so I thought I'd update you on what's new.
To close out this crazy and unprecedented year, I'll be taking some time to highlight my fellow kidlit creators who are working their tails off to birth their beautiful book babies into the world. With this in mind, beginning in October, I'll be starting a new series titled, "Rising Stars in KidLit." Every Monday, I'll feature a new kidlit creator so we can get to know more about them and their special projects. These interviews will cast a light on the wonderful work of these pre-published, unagented, authors and author-illustrators who are destined to be stars!
Stay tuned for our first interview on Monday, October 5th! Make sure to subscribe below to get updates on the latest new feature! I can't wait to share their awesomeness with all of you! :)
