Happy Holidays from Blissfully Bookish!

Posted on

Hello world!!

Thank you for being a loyal reader of my blog, Blissfully Bookish. I’ll be hosting a special giveaway soon just for my blog followers, more details to come right after the holidays.

In the meantime, YAY!!! My new STEM book DEEP, DEEP, DOWN: The Secret Underwater Poetry of the Mariana Trench illustrated by Juan Calle and published by Capstone Editions, a Capstone imprint, sails into our universe on January 1! This book was a labour of love, and combines my two biggest passions: science and poetry.

Here’s a summary:

Deep, deep down, at the very bottom of the ocean, lies a secret world. Through lyrical narration, this spare-text STEM picture book takes readers on a journey to a place very few humans have ever been–the Mariana Trench. The imagined voyage debunks scary myths about this mysterious place with surprising and beautiful truths about life at Earth’s deepest point. DEEP, DEEP, DOWN: The Secret Underwater Poetry of the Mariana Trench shows a vibrant world far below, and teaches readers how interconnected our lives are to every place on the planet.

Happy holidays!!!

I’ll be back in early January with my special giveaway.

Love & Light,

    Looking forward to receiving your book! It’s been preordered for some time. I think that Laura’s tip about putting structure before beauty is currently apropos. My critique from CF pretty much hit this nerve. I’m now changing the PB’s structure (while keeping some of the beautiful words, LOL). Cheers!
