Easy Listenin’ Kid Lit…
Hey. Check out this new podcast I’ve discovered about picture books, called Picturebooking, by Nick Patton.
I had a new app on my laptop and phone. While searching to add a podcast to the one other kidlit podcast I love (see Brain Burps About Books, by Katie Davis…link next door), I discovered Picturebooking.
These are two totally different podcasts.
While Katie’s podcast revs me up, Nick’s calms me down. What engages me so with Nick’s pocast? Maybe it’s including his baby daughter in the process, maybe it’s the slow and easy, simple focus of his approach.
At any rate, I like it. It’s filled a spot.
Not Katie’s spot, mind you. I need Katie’s full-of-life go-get-it cheerleading style in my writing life as well. For an old guy needing motivation, spurring on, and a swift kick in the but every other episode to keep me moving, writing, and marketing, Katie, my friend, is the key.
Meanwhile, I also need the stroking, calm, encouraging affirming smile that comes across through Nick’s moments when he shares himself as a writer, through interviews with generous published guest writers, and directly to me, the listener.
Wow. What a balance.
AND, check out the CONTEST going on now.
