Rainforest Lullaby

Welcome to Sally's book-a-day-for-2017 blog. If unfamiliar with the blog, scroll down.

Rainforest Lullaby  (2014) Post 192

Rainforest Lullaby is the second in the "lullaby" series I co-created with Lisa Stewart. This one features a brighter palette than its predecessor, with the strong greens and blues and browns reflecting the rainforest setting. I love the green and gold cover with its textures possums and branch. This cover proved unexpectedly difficult to photograph, because the green reflected and bounced light. Finally some online friends did some lightbox photography for me. Rainforest Lullaby was shortlisted for an environmental literature award in 2014.

About the Blog 

Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service, leave me a message.
