Allyn Johnston on picture books: ✨ “At its very best and at the top of its game, a picture book is what I like to call a page-turning-meant-to-be-read-aloud-theatrical-extravaganza that casts a spell on everyone lucky enough to be present.” #SCBWIBigFiveOh
Well, Twitter fam. I DID IT! I submitted my first ever query to be represented by a literary agent thanks to SCBWI. And now... let the waiting game begin! I’m excited either way because it’s a huge step, and I am proud of myself for simply taking a chance. Yay! 😊#SCBWIBigFiveOh

Here are the August giveaways from my @PBLaunch2022 group…enter to win critiques from our talented writers!
@aj_irving Thank you for this!! The illustrator is just as much a creator of a picture book as the author, and deserves the same credit--as you obviously know, but many don't seem care.
Fellow text-only PB authors! I love to support your books with quote tweets, but I often have to spend a lot of time tracking down the illustrator’s handle. Please include the illustrator in your posts! If they aren’t on Twitter, you can hashtag their name! 😊 #kidlit #kidlitart
On days when it's a challenge staying positive, I try to focus on passing on good karma instead of bad. What also helps me (in case this helps others): seeking out those who inspire me to be a better person instead of those who seek to pull me & others down.
🌟"A magical, philosophical tale rooted in Mexican lore that will hold readers from beginning to end with its verdant language and setting." A starred review for LOTERÍA from @sljournal! Congrats @KV_Writes!
