creating space for diverse books


Why we should write more diverse books

Today’s topic is creating space for diverse books in the market. And, we’re focussing on cultural diversity.  We’re going to hear two sides of publishing spectrum. We’ll hear from the authors of two amazing books about to hit our shelves, and the publishing staff who have signed on to work with these books.

Everybody please welcome, author Crystal Corocher, the publisher of Wombat Books Rochelle Stephens, Author Sandhya Parappukkaran, and editor from Hardie Grant Books Joanna Wong.

Introducing Bonus Episodes to the Tacos podcast. Episodes focussed purely on process.

Interviews with the best kids book authors, illustrators, and publishers!

All focussed on the craft of creating books for kids. We’ll give you all the tools you need to write books for kids and get published.

For 150 episodes now, I’ve put my heart and soul into a podcast, creating content to help or promote kid lit creators and their amazing work.

I will continue to provide up-to-date free episodes as I’ve always done, on all podcast platforms. That won’t change! I’ll continue to introduce and promote authors, illustrators, and their books, as well as episodes chock-full of kid lit information.

But for those people who want more on the process of writing for kids, for those who want to hone their craft, continue to grow, learn from others who have succeed, and want more of an understanding of the publishing industry, then Taco Bonus Episodes are for you.

Bonus Episodes are focussed purely on process, the tools you need, and all the support you’ll need along the way.   

The first three episodes are live and uploaded to Tacos Community. To subscribe, go to Apple Podcasts and subscribe to Reading with a chance of Tacos.
