The Invincible Voices Collection – The covers are here!
How do you like the look of the book covers for the Invincible Voices short stories collection? I am busily working together with Matador (part of the Troubador group) on these publications (currently at the typesetting stage). The three books should hopefully be out by January/February 2017. I think Athena Estrada’s illustrations look fab!
The stories are for children by children; they contain first-hand concepts that children want to read about because children have chosen to write them. With a skilled teacher to guide them (that’s me!), the children are inspired to come up with their own ideas, then helped to shape, structure, organise and develop them so that they evolve into more professional pieces. The result of such an approach is a unique style, a hybrid product of adult and child’s voice. The stories possess the spirit and originality of a child’s creative ideas, but with the polish and flair of an experienced writer (me again!).
