Thank you so much for visiting. This is my first book! I am like a Rainbow
I am so excited to say I have published a book, and no I don’t have an agent or a publisher but I have done all the work myself and I am proud of that. I am still looking for an agent/publisher while I keep working on self-publishing my rhyming picture books as well.
It is designed to be bright and colourful but to help children (and their carers) accept themselves just as they are. having emotions is not a problem, it is what we do with our emotions that matters.
I want my son Luca to know that I won’t be angry with him if he feels angry (or at least I will do my best not to show that I am angry, I am only human and it is hard being a parent!). But I won’t be happy if he hits or throws for example. The book doesn’t just talk about ‘negative’ emotions because I think that would reinforce the stigma of certain emotions being bad. It looks at being happy and sad and thoughtful and friendly and loud (not all emotions or who we are but also how we are).
If you want to have a look inside, these are some of the interior pictures.
Thank you from the depth of my heart for joining me here and reading this and for your support along my journey. I find it hard posting about myself and my work because it is hard, but I do it anyway because I have faith in what I am doing and in myself and I want to be a good role model for my son. And hey, what’s the worst that could happen? You don’t like the book? You don’t like me? It isn’t going to be a best seller, it isn’t going to change the world, but it is my little contribution. Feel free to share and if you do buy a copy please please give a review on Amazon if you can, it makes such a huge difference to how Amazon deal with my book.
