IBPA award

I am so excited and honoured to share that The Body Book has been named the winner of the IBPA’s*  Benjamin Franklin Gold Medal Award in the children’s picture book 0-3 category!

In the indie book world, it can feel hard to gauge the response to your work sometimes, since everything happens on a smaller scale, so recognition at this level is a very welcome cause for celebration.  Unfortunately I was unable to attend the awards gala in Portland, but was lucky that my fellow Promontory author, Pearl R. Meaker, author of her own award winner, The Devil’s Music was able to accept on my behalf.  Thanks Pearl! I’m very very excited about the gold stickers.

Music video and song!

So excited to announce the release of ‘I Love the Shape of Me,’ a song to accompany The Body Book! I dream of kids (and parents) getting this song about loving their own unique bodies and shape stuck in their heads.

Thank you so much to Corinne Hansen for her amazing vocals, the talented Dario Scaramuzza for animating, and Julian Marrs for instrumentation, recording, mixing, and mastering!
