Introducing The Backstory
I am so excited to announce a new blog series, The Backstory.
This is the place to take a sneak peek into what inspires authors and their stories. In each post, a picturebook author will dish on the inspiration behind their latest story, as well as clue us in on how that spark of an idea transformed into the book it is today. Our authors will share what books have been the most influential to their writing and let you in on their must-haves for their workspaces, from snacks to reference materials to inspirational photos.
I have been overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness of the kidlit community. It is my hope that this series can be a small way of giving back and that sharing the inspiration behind these works will in turn inspire new ideas for you!
Be sure to check back here on Wednesday, December 30, for our first post featuring Jess Hernandez and her debut book, FIRST DAY OF UNICORN SCHOOL.
