The Three P’s of Publishing – Passion, Perseverance and Perspiration

I’ll read one of my picture books (your choice) and share how passion, perseverance and perspiration helped bring my books from idea to publication. Often, people don't realize all that goes into creating a picture book so, I'll give a behind-the-scenes look.

I’ll read one of my picture books (your choice) and share how passion, perseverance and perspiration helped bring my books from idea to publication. Often, people don't realize all that goes into creating a picture book so, I'll give a behind-the-scenes look including: where my ideas come from; the writing and revision process – including rough drafts; rejection letters; and the illustrators' sketches and final art.
