10.11.2019: How to Critique on the Moon

New article! And new picture book!

I wrote a piece for the November 2019 issue of The Writer magazine (on newsstands now) called How to Be a Good Critique Partner. It’s full of best practices to apply when you don an editorial cap—strategies and approaches that will improve how your feedback is delivered and received. I hope you’ll take a look.

Those who follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook may have already seen this news: Illustrator Mika Song and I have a new picture book coming in spring 2020, and I am bursting with love for the art. Love, Sophia on the Moon is a mother-daughter story about anger, imagination, unconditional love, and moonicorns. It comes out on March 31, and it may be the best thing I’ve written.

If you’d like to preorder a copy (thank you!), please request it at your local bookstore or library, or follow one of these links: Indiebound | B&N | Amazon | Target | Indigo | Book Depository (ships worldwide) | BAM. Learn more about the book here.

Life on earth isn’t fair, so Sophia is off to the moon…
