Introducing debut middle-grade author, Fiona Lloyd
I’m so excited to share this beautiful interview with debut middle-grade author, and girl&duck alumnus, Fiona Lloyd!
Fiona has been a Duckie and a Scribbler and I’ve loved watching her go from strength to strength, developing her talent, keeping the faith, doing the verk. 😉
This is a funny, engaging and super inspiring conversation that covers all the machinations behind getting your first novel out there. I know you will LOVE this, dear reader! Whether you’re an aspiring or established author, this chat will be your jam. You’ll get lots of giggles too!
PS For those in my current e-course, Rewriting Fiction, this interview is incredibly timely as we go deep into the process of working with editors and rewriting both for yourself and for a publisher.
Fiona’s beautiful book, Being Jimmy Baxter, will be released on July 4, 2023, Penguin/Random House.
Congratulations, Fiona, on keeping the faith, showing up consistently and going all in. I’m so thrilled for you.
Oh, and thank you for dropping by the girlandduck podcast!
