I’m excited to tell you, I’ve been working on some other manuscripts while waiting for the final edits and book design for The Lullaby Monsters, a night time adventure about facing fears with Kelsey, Thomas and a bunch of cute monsters. This will appeal to 5-8 year olds and is divided into short chapters for beginning readers.
Today, I decided to do something fun; create some book swag for my readers! With the gorgeous artwork of Paula Nasmith, I’ve created some adorable stickers and book plates to go along with the book. And I’m giving you a preview right here, right now! Check it out…
I can’t wait for this book to be ready! We’re hoping for May or June. When it comes out I’ll be happily sending out books and stickers. I have a bunch more character stickers that I will reveal closer to the release date. Sign up for my newsletter and learn more.
Thank you for stopping by my blog. You are welcome here any time!
In this night time adventure, big sister Kelsey is always her brother’s hero. She bravely helps with lost teddy bears, scraped knees, and favourite picnic foods. But when Thomas can’t sleep because of the lullaby monsters, Kelsey isn’t sure she can help, especially since monsters are the one thing she fears. When Thomas’ precious lullaby box is stolen, Kelsey must face her monstrous fear and in doing so, she discovers that the lullaby monsters are a lot like Thomas.
After a delay in the cover design, we now have The Lullaby Monsters nearly ready for publication, thanks to Paula Nasmith.

Welcome to Monday! I know that Monday probably not your favourite day. But, as I’ve learned, it is all in your attitude.
Every Monday I’m sharing a little story about myself. You need to know that this is not an easy task for me as an introvert. Today, I’d like to share a little story about tea.
I’m a tea drinker. Black tea, green tea, rooibos tea, early grey, chai, chamomile, I like it all! I still remember my first introduction to tea. It was a little tea party held at a neighbour’s house. I was somewhere around 8 years old. There was a little table covered with a fancy cloth just for us kids. There was a cute little tea pot wrapped up in a tea cozy. I took a sip of tea. It was strong. So very strong. I couldn’t help grimace at the first sip. I added some sugar. Took a sip. More sugar. Another sip. More sugar. Another sip. Delicious!
Now I drink my tea with nothing added and find it equally delicious. If I’m in the mood for something stronger, chai is my tea of choice. When I want something good for me, green tea is my preference. A warm comforting cup to start my day or any time of day is an essential part of my daily routine. And when I’m writing? A cup of tea is usually close at hand.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you’ll stop by again. Why not enjoy a cup of tea while you’re reading. What’s in your mug this Monday?
