I would like to take the time to thank Tara for hosting my cover reveal for my next picture book GET READY, MAMA! I ‘met’ Tara a long time ago in 2014, when I first participated in PiBoIdMo (now known as Storystorm), and I appreciate the time Tara gives to support everyone in the KidLit community.

GET READY, MAMA! is a role reversal/how-to story, about a child who has to get her mama ready for the day. In particular the amount of time it takes to do this and the order of events.

Time is familiar to us all, but it is often hard to define and understand. For me it is easier to think of time as a sequence of events. What has happened (the past), what is happening (the present), and what will happen (the future).

In the past (2018) I wrote GET READY, MAMA! It took a long time to write, revise, and re-write my book. Then it took even more time to get a publishing deal (2020).

In GET READY, MAMA the mama is sleeping, which is in the past.

In the present (2021) I am doing a cover reveal for GET READY, MAMA!

In GET READY MAMA the mama is getting ready, which is in the present.

And now it is time for the cover reveal with art by Arielle Li…

Getting Mama ready for the day can be a challenge… you’d better watch out that she doesn’t sneak back into bed, try to distract you with cuddles, get breakfast all over her top, or… wait, is Mama watching TV?! Learn how to get Mama up and ready despite her mischievous delaying tactics with this essential guide to dealing with morning mayhem!

In the future (2022) GET READY, MAMA will be released. You will have to wait for that to happen. It may feel like a long time to you! So, to make the waiting easier here is a sneaky peek from GET READY, MAMA!

Best of all, you can pre-order it now in the present, and receive it later, in the future.
