Hey, folks.

Below is Tim Flanagan's Guest Post which now appears on my writing blog. It's always interesting to gain insights into the process a writer uses, especially in the children's book genre.

Nice artwork. I don't know the story very well, but it looks good.

This online bookstore invites authors and publishers from across the globe. Only thing is that the conditions for which to submit a book to be added to the site, differs depending on the country.

Many communities across the globe support writers and illustrators to soar...Below is one example, through the May Gibbs Trust. As a young immigrant child, I loved reading her books and soon became a voracious reader that saw me top the class two years running, despite arriving in Australia at age 4.5yrs.lol....I still find that funny, and I owe it to writers such as Ms Gibbs.

Hi everyone, I haven't been on here much over the last couple of months or so, with lots going on and beavering away at the final re-write of my first children's book. As a writer, I feel a huge responsibility to make every word count for the young reader. Then there's the job of finding the perfect illustrator to match the characters and their story.

When you have a few spare moments, please visit this new page, especially created solely for the two starring characters, Wiggly and Wobbly Wombat. Comments are most welcome.:)

What are the main things you look for in a children's book that would tempt you to take it off the shelf (includes online) and then to buy?

Introduction
So readers know they have the right Mena Bruno?? OK....I was born in Italy and have dual citizenship. I aim to divide my time between both countries. 

Full name: Filomena Bruno (it's more common than you think. Search FB!). Friends call me either Mena or Fil. I prefer Mena 

I love it when my dog smiles. It's infectious. Oh, and I sometimes share fish dinners with stray cats.:)

Bragging rights
Great cook with longevity genes! :)
