@misstoogood @smartgiles Getting my oven cleaned was some of my most successful Twitter shizzle this year! (my mum bought me the clean as a birthday present, yes sir) - do it Giles.
🎺🎺🎺 NEW BOOKS 🎺🎺🎺 It's an all female affair, this week with stunners from @sarahhorne9 @JennyLovlie x 2 @Sally_Nicholls @bagleybooks. Huge congratulations to all, and to co-creators and publishers.
@tombonnick Yeah, I get that. A nice take-down of Pat was what was probably missing but we know she’s not entirely straight so would it be that much of a surprise? I just don’t want any of the three of them to be bent so I’m not sure anything else can be that shocking.
Like, “this shit will go on and on” - that’s right! The baddy was just a greedy git. Life! And Ted’s speech to Pat was a zinger - summed up the whole thing. It wasn’t full of dark, twisted surprises but it showed the goodness of our trio.
@JemmaWharton Tricky one. I had planned for it to be mostly about illustration, but I will doubtless talk about writing as some illustrators also plan to write, and also some advice is pretty universal.
These two beauts publish today! Huge congratulations to @_JimField and @PeterBently and their book-partners @RBrightBooks and @misspowellpeeps. Both have been firm favourites here for a few weeks now 🥳
Please can I draw your attention to my extremely clever pal/neighbour, Meg, who had to pivot her brilliant nails business in the pandemic and is now hand painting these incredible candles 🤩🤩🤩
@Louiestowell @SmritiPH @BZephaniah @dc_litchfield @nilaaye I know! That chart is like a bloody fortress for picture books so this is just SO GREAT.
It's not every day (or every year) that two clients break into the Children's Top 50 with stand alone picture books so excuse the 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 for @SmritiPH & @BZephaniah for 'Rain Before Rainbows' and 'Nature Trail' & the incredible illustrators of each - @dc_litchfield & @nilaaye
@philjanko Hi. All my details are on our website along with submission guidelines which vary slightly depending on the project. See you Thursday!
Just a little reminder of this for any new illustrators or students who might want to know a bit more about getting/having an agent. Can't promise genius, can promise swears. Next Thursday evening. Come if only to see what 2 kids and a pandemic has done to that fresh faced girl.
A goodgoodgoodgoodgood work day. Topped only by my child asking permission to go to the toilet in his own house because he was still in school mode at 6pm 🤣👌
@pixiecake I could literally never make sense of it in my head so it would be a moment of visceral pre-teen closure to see it manifested!
Well knock me down with a sanitary towel worn with a belt (?!) how did I not know this was happening?!?!
PSA! The @beautypie body cream is glorious! I hate sticky moisturisers that leave your skin tacky for hours - this is as non-sticky as my old fave Lush Dream Cream but richer and smells 👌
