Three quick things this week:
- By the end of today, I will have five book manuscripts in the market. They range from picture books to a novella to novels in verse. Yesterday I decided to start work in September on a new historical YA novel in verse. Timeframe: 1951, America.
- I’ve been thinking of unearthing the scads of picture book biographies that have been lingering in the drawer for years. Erika Dreifus mentioned her new mentor text this morning: a biography of Judah Touro, published by Kar-Ben in April 2020. What are your favorite PB bios?
- Writing Chai is going to gear up again on July 26. Unearth your creativity, meet the blank page with fervor, and turn your raw material into writing you love. If you’re interested in writing to timed prompts on Sundays, please send a note to me at barbarakrasner(at)att(dot)net.
Continue to be safe, wherever you are.
