WEE OO WEE OO! ALERT! Flash: The Litle Fire Engine is ready for pre order!

I'm excited to announce that my newest book, FLASH: THE LITTLE FIRE ENGINE is already on amazon for pre-order.

The story follows Little Flash who's about to embark on his first day on the job. He's SOOOO excited! Will he be able to pitch in and save the day?

This is a character driven story made for boys and girls who love emergency vehicles. It's action packed with loads of sounds and a quick plot.

When I wrote this, it took a long time for me to figure out what was going to happen in it. I knew I wanted to write about a fire truck simply because there's tons of dump trucks, garbage trucks, backhoes, trains, etc, but not fire trucks! You must write about things that aren't already in the market if you want to sell.

Since I didn't know much about fire trucks, I did a lot of research for this story. My son-in-law helped me, too. (A family effort since my grandsons adore fire trucks.)

If you want to know more about how to write a character driven story, read my article here: CHARACTER DRIVEN PICTURE BOOKS. Also, if you're a budding picture book writer and need to learn more, grab my button on the side of this blog and join others in doing the free workshop, PICTURE BOOK UNIVERSITY. I will be posting extra lessons in the future (so follow this blog or follow via email so you won't miss them!)

Have a little fire fighter on your gift list? Give her/him this cute story! You can pre order or put it on your wish list as it comes just in time for next Christmas (Ahh! It'll be here before you know it. 😅)

I'll leave you with a sneak peek inside (I'm so thrilled at what Jen Taylor, the illustrator did with Flash!):
