  • Ready for the @penguinbooksaus open house! 👯‍♀️💕 Did we both intentionally plan on: - Wearing black? No
- Wearing our zodiac necklaces? No
- Wearing the same shade of lipstick? No
- Curling our hair? No
⠀⠀
This twinning stuff just happens on a regular basis! Sometimes it feels like we share a brain, which is probably a good thing considering we’re co-authors! 😂👏🏻 ⠀⠀
The Penguin Random House open day last week at @writingnsw was amazing and gave us a really insightful look into the publishing industry! 🤓📚 We learnt so much, from what an acquisition meeting is like to the process of selling world and film rights to a book! We also had a manuscript assessment with a wonderful @penguinkidsaustralia editor who gave us some killer feedback 🙌🏻
⠀⠀
Q - Which publishing company’s open house would you LOVE to go to?? ✨

  • The release date of our picture book is fast approaching (7 days to be exact but who’s counting) 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ and our publisher has informed us that it is officially available for pre-order with a few online retailers! 🤗 
If you’d like to pre-order a copy, head to our website (link in bio) and follow the links on the ‘books’ page. Quite a few of you have asked us what the book is about so we have included the blurb below ✨💕
⠀⠀
‘Meet Harlow, the cheekiest fairy in all of Happily Hollows. When her mischievous tricks become too much for Fairy Godmother Mae to handle, she takes Harlow’s laugh away. Join Harlow and her little dog, Dixie, on their adventure to find Harlow’s laugh and discover the true meaning behind friendship and laughter.’✨💕🌈🍄🌸🦄🧚🏼‍♀️

  • HAPPY SUNDAY from us 💕👯‍♀️
⠀⠀
#NaNoWriMo week one update:
We have officially passed the half way mark for our 20,000 word goal! This project is the sequel in our junior fiction series - which would probably fall into the ‘funny book’ category which basically means we just laugh the entire time we’re writing at all our crazy stupid ideas! 😂✨
⠀⠀
We are roughly around 12,000 words into this draft and so far we are really happy with the progress. We have now hit quite a difficult part in our story - a point when we’ve realised we need to make some more character bios and do a little more planning - so are preparing ourselves to remain around the 12,000 word mark for the next day or so! 💻✨
⠀⠀
Q - How is everyone’s writing going this November? Does anyone else like adding humour into their stories? 💕

  • It’s official! Wally is copyrighted as of 12:32am this morning! 😴 My non author friends are thinking—MEGHAN you’re such a big deal! My author friends are thinking, 👊🏻one more “to do” crossed off your never ending list. 
Turns out, all you need for a copyright is $55 and a file to upload. 😂
•
Can I still be a big deal?? (This reminds me of when my husband and I tried to invent a product while in grad school. We were “patent pending” for a whole year and felt like bosses. Same deal though, no approval or any big wig telling you yes or no, just click—SUBMIT!) —correct me if I’m wrong, but this is the vibe I’m grabbing!

  • B is for Boat - Sink Play 🚣‍♀️ We were so thankful to receive this beautiful book - W is for Wapiti! An Alphabet Songbook from @secretmountainpublishing.

This is a beautiful Alphabet book that contains a music CD.  This week, we explored the letter B.  We read the story and listened to the music.  B is for Itsy-Bitsy Tiny Boat.  For our book play, we made paper boats.  I added blue food coloring to the sink so they could sail their boats in our ocean.

Scroll the pictures to see more of this fun book.  We will definitely keep using it for our alphabet activities.  You can purchase the book on Amazon or through their website.  Go follow them at @secretmountainpublishing to see more of their books.  You can also follow them on YouTube to hear their stories read aloud. ❤️

  • What Should Danny Do?

I am so excited to share the book, What Should Danny Do? by Ganit and Adir Levy.  This story teaches an amazing lesson to kids.  It shows them that their choices can have a positive or negative impact based on their decisions.  There are 9 stories in 1.  The reader has the ability to make decisions for Danny and the story will change based on that decision. 
My kids absolutely loved it.  The first time we read it, they wanted to make all the right decisions for Danny.  They were eager to read it again and change the choices to see the different outcomes.  It’s great that we can keep reading it and it’s a new story each time.

Slide to see some of the beautiful illustrations.  Go follow them at @elonbooks because they have even more awesome books being published.  I went on their website and their is an abundance of resources as well.  I gave my kids these coloring pages that they enjoyed because they have fallen in love with Danny.

Check them out on YouTube and you can see the Author reading the story.  I definitely recommend this book.  You can find it on Amazon or where most books are sold.

  • Obsessing over the new @amitycreated collection ✨These mugs are pure magic! ✨
⠀⠀
We purchased both the clarity mug and the strength mug from the ‘Soul Whispers’ collection and they are amazing! 😍 The watercolour art is so enchanting and even prettier in person! There are also some gorgeous quotes from the creator, Daniela, on the back that are incredibly inspiring to read while sipping your favourite brew 💕💭
⠀⠀
We have been writing non-stop this week, so it’s incredibly important to slow down for a moment and enjoy a cup of tea ☕️☺️
⠀⠀
Q - What have you done to take time out for yourself this week? ⠀⠀

  • Last weekend I attended the @scbwi BI conference in Winchester. It was a weekend full of joy and learning with fellow children’s authors and wonderful friends, that fill my heart and make me smile.
.
I live tweeted a lot of it (the first photo is of a sketch @imogenfoxell drew of me live tweeting. .
The second photo is of @candygourlay in conversation with Nicola Solomon of the @society_of_authors.
.
The third is of me and @camcauthor dressed as Little Red Riding Hood and Puss in Boots (I thought my disguise was so good, no one would know it was me, so I allowed photos to be taken! 🤣).
.
The rest of the photos are uploaded as a reminder to me for when writing gets tough, and are in response to a pitch I did of my forthcoming middle grade novel. I didn’t think I’d be so nervous when I got off stage!

  • 🙋🏼‍♀️Big fan over here of getting kids off screens and using their brains. (Bc how did “sure for 30 mins” turn into 2 hours yesterday??🤦🏼‍♀️) The gift of imagination can’t go to waste at such a young age! This is a BIG reason Wally is coming—get those 🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️kids wiggling & giggling! 
I made this I Spy quilt a few years ago and it does the job wonderfully! It has been worth every plea for scrap fabric with random images. 🤪My fave: sushi or ritz crackers. Any quilters out there?? 🤞🏻
