Like most things in 2020, Kitty O’Meara’s publishing journey has been anything but ordinary. She lays out how her simple Facebook post evolved into a viral post and now a children’s book. Listen to this very inspiring interview on today’s episode of the Journey to Kidlit podcast!
Interview with Debut Children’s Book Author, Kitty O’Meara:
Kitty O’Meara never thought a simple Facebook post meant to encourage some friends during quarantine would take on a life of its own. But when Deepak Chopra shares your post, you know you have something special on your hands.
AND THE PEOPLE STAYED HOME is the new children’s book that came from this inspiring story. Kitty O’Meara explains how this journey unfolded, plus helpful tips for any other aspiring children’s book author.
A wonderful story to encourage you to just put things out there. Not just dream about it or wait until it’s perfect.
