SOLD! My New Character Driven series!


Just wanted to share that I will be having a brand new princess series coming by Two Lions! We finally decided on the name--don't get hung up on a character's name. Over the many picture books I've written, only one actually has the name I came up with in the beginning (Princess Peepers). 

So, it's entitled, BRIANNA BRIGHT, BALLERINA KNIGHT! It's about a spunky princess who's searching for her talent.Through lots of trial and error (re: much slapstick), she ends up with TWO! 

How did I get a new series? By holding onto the tenets I found by studying these types of books. I knew publishers needed them, and I set out to find a story that hasn't been written. UNIQUENESS is key! Plus humor helps. My spunky princess is funny and my editor wants more adventures. 

If you want to write a character driven story, please read my lesson on this topic and do the assignment! Character Driven Picture Books. Study these types of books!

And NEVER GIVE UP!
