It’s finally here! Come and check out the trailer for my new picture book, «C’est chouette, une maman!». Directed by Ian Partridge (thanks a bunch!)
Having fun in my new home studio!
Today, it came! My brand spanking new voice-over kit. I’ve upgraded my home studio with a new SL 300 condenser USB microphone (sounds great!), a wind-screen (no more popping “P”s) and new portable vocal booth (it’s so shiny!) The second I laid eyes on this baby, I knew it was the one for me!
Set up was a breeze and I just can’t wait to fire it up. Bring on the VO gigs! I’m ready to take your breath away!
I got some great news today!
Every year, the Ontario Library Association (OLA) has a wonderful literacy program called The Forest of Reading where young readers from across the province read a selection of books and vote for their favourite. This culminates into a massive celebration at Harbourfront in Toronto in May where thousand of kids come and meet the authors they’ve read. Since 2010, Forest of Reading also has French categories. In the past, I’ve had the pleasure of having two of my books, Tous les œufs dans le même panier and Coup de théâtre à Stratford, make the cut and be finalists for this award.
Today, I got the news that not one but TWO of my new releases are in the running! Fatima et les voleurs de clémentines is a finalist for the Prix Tamarac Express and Chapeau Charlotte! is in the running for the brand new picture book award, Prix Peuplier.
If you’d like more information about the Forest of Reading program, or if you’d like to have your class join in, click here!
Thank you, Forest of Reading selection committee! Now, all we can do is read and… knock on wood!
As of Monday, I will be in the Saguenay region meeting with young readers. Fatima and Charlotte are coming along for the trip. Some kids, I will see at their schools, others I will meet at the annual Saguenay book fair (Salon du livre du Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean). either way, I’m really look forward to it! If, per chance, you are in the area, please don’t hesitate to swing by and say “bonjour”!
