Thursday Read-Throughs with Maryna Doughty

My friend and critique partner, Maryna Doughty, has begun a new blog series called Thursday Read-Throughs. This week I’m excited to join her!

Picture books are meant to be read aloud, so it’s important for authors to hear their work read aloud. A recording of a first-time read-through can give a writer insights into the flow of the story, as well as any spots new readers may stumble.

I’ve always loved reading aloud. When I taught elementary school for ten years, my favorite part of the day was shared reading. Now I read aloud to my own little ones multiple times a day, as well as reading the stories of my critique partners.

Would YOU like a recording of your kid lit material (1000 words or less)? If so, please subscribe to Maryna’s blog here, subscribe to my blog, and retweet Maryna’s pinned tweet on Twitter

We’ll draw SIX winners this week. Maryna will record three stories, and I’ll record three stories. I’m honored to read other writers’ work and am looking forward to this fun opportunity!

Here’s me reading aloud my poem “Rainbow Dance” from Hop To It: Poems to Get You Moving
