My piece about Women’s Storybook Project was published on Motherlode, the New York Times parenting blog, a few weeks ago. I’ve been pitching to editor K.J. Dell’Antonio for a few years now. I think my first pitch was about conducting a successful kickstarter project to publish my novel while I had a toddler at home. K.J. has always been gracious enough to read my work and even when it was a “no,” her feedback was polite and prompt. For that, I’m grateful. Recently I got the “yes” I’d been striving for. I did a prison visit for Women’s Storybook Project, a program that connects mothers in prison with their children through recordings that the mothers make of themselves reading book.
