One of the things I love to do is write alphabet books. They’re so unique and have a structure and a voice all their own.
Sometimes, when I’m in the middle of a huge nonfiction project, I just like to do a fun little alphabet book or picture book on the side. It’s good for my brain after a day of intensive research. Or when I get stuck wading through years of facts, facts, facts I take a break and enjoy some light-hearted writing by working on a picture book.
This summer, I’m planning on taking an Alphabet Book Adventure. My critique groups joined in the fun with me last year. This year, I’m inviting you to join in, too!
Why am I telling you now? So you can have time to prepare. I got so many e-mails from writers when I launched the Book In A Month Club saying that many of you couldn’t join in the fun because you were already in the middle of another manuscript.
So this time I thought I’d let you know weeks and weeks ahead. Somewhere in the middle of the summer–just for fun!–I’m hoping to launch an Alphabet Book Adventure on my blog. I’ll invite you to join me as we target one specific publisher together and write a brand new alphabet book step by step that is designed to fit their market.
Get ready! It’s gonna be a LOT of fun!
