Jul 25, 2022 Books, Giveaway, Publishing, Uncategorized Comment

Today, we continue the countdown to the release of my upcoming picture book, BRAVER THAN BRAVE, illustrated by Eunji Jungand published by Capstone Editions, a Capstone Imprint. I present Days 18-20 of 26 Days of Facing the Chicken Exit!

DAY 18: Angie Lucas, author of MY BIG, DUMB, INVISIBLE DRAGON 

“I rode the roller coaster of infertility for 12 long years. After three consecutive losses, I gathered every remaining ounce of courage to try ONE more time. And that’s how I got my wonderful son, Wyatt, who just turned 5.”

A white boy with brown hair in a black shirt and camo pants stands in a doorway with a rollercoaster in the background. Above the doorway is a sign that says "Chicken Exit."


DAY 19: PB Character, Morah

In MERMAIDS DON’T WEAR FLOATIES, Morah faces a chicken exit when she elects to learn to swim instead of keeping her floaties on.

A cartoon girl with red hair and light brown skin, wearing a blue shirt and red striped pants and holding a wrapped present, stands in front of a real life door with a rollercoaster in the background. Above the door is a yellow sign that reads "Chicken Exit"


DAY 20: Gabi Snyder, author of COUNT ON US! 

“As a young adult I went skiing for the first time with friends who were seasoned skiers. They said they could teach me to ski and we got in line for an intermediate slope. I could barely stand in the skis. The idea of starting with an intermediate slope terrified me. Even the chairlift terrified me! So another friend and I happily took the chicken exit and spent the afternoon taking lessons on the bunny hill. The chicken exit was definitely the right choice!”

A light-skinned woman with blond hair in a dark grey shirt stands in a doorway with a rollercoaster in the background. Above the doorway is a sign that says "Chicken Exit."
