Fantastic Flowers


Fantastic Flowers
by Susan Stockdale (Author / Illustrator)

Booktalk: With rhythmic, rhyming text and beautifully patterned painting, Fantastic Flowers introduces young readers to 17 flowers that resemble all kinds of things. Budding botanists will be amazed at how much they look like upside-down pants, wild monkeys and even tiny babies!


Flowers in shapes that surprise and delight.
Upside down pants,
a parrot in flight.
Prim ballerinas,
wild baboons.
Snakes standing guard,
and spiraling spoons.

Finish your next picture book draft before Memorial Day

Finish your next picture book draft before Memorial Day, Monday May 29.

Need help with your first draft?
Work with a developmental editor to write the first draft of your picture book in the April 5 – May 24, 2017 Intensive Picture Book Workshop –and revise it twice.

First draft already done?
Send in your completed picture book for a Picture Book WIP Critique or schedule a phone consultation to talk about your book.

A phone consultation costs $100 less than a written critique because as we talk you will be the one taking notes about the changes you want to make.

My writers come from all levels of the continuum, from beginner to already published. Some sold the books they wrote when we were working together while others continued to master their craft and sold their first book later. Are you ready to work with a writing mentor? Are you looking for a critique to help you take your book to the next level? Sign up for a first draft workshop or a revision critique so we can start working together!

I look forward to working with you!

A Book of Bridges

A Book of Bridges: Here To There and Me To You
by Cheryl Keely (Author) and Celia Krampien (Illustrator)

Booktalk: Bridges are some of the most fascinating structures in our landscape, and they come in all forms. From towering suspension bridges to humble stone crossings, this book visits them all with bouncy text and expository sidebars.

They can be wooden-covered,


or in London, falling down.
