Hello friends! Can you believe we’re well into October?? And do you know that what that means??? It is officially LAUNCH MONTH for my debut picture book, THE MONSTER ABOVE THE BED. Written by me, illustrated by the incomparable Steph Lew, this book is one of many layers. With a fun twist on a classic fear, Blossom will help you find out what the monsters under our beds think of US! You’ll see layers of courage, friendship, judgments/othering, and more. I hope this book brings joy to young readers everywhere!
Now… in the spirit of Launch Month, I am offering a MONSTERLY HUGE GIVEAWAY!
One grand prize winner will be able to CHOOSE between:
Mini PB Mentorship with Kailei Pew: two (1.5 hour each) zoom calls to discuss anything and everything publishing PLUS three rounds of extensive revision on one PB manuscript PLUS work on pitches and queries
