I hope you are all well and staying safe. Just a reminder that my critique service is still going, and also that I have some free resources on my site at the moment if you are home schooling. My next online picture book writing course starts on 6 May so if you are interested please fill out the form or pop me an email.
If you fancy a treat, tune in to Konnie Huq reading an extract from Letter to Pluto as part of her daily broadcasts to children on her YouTube channel. I love her brief history of time and the planet she creates at the end! Having watched her on Blue Peter I’m very honoured to have her read one of my books.
My latest book has been delayed until later in the year, but on the bright side this has given me a chance to add an extra surprise to the back which I hope will be fun for readers to find. Of course with libraries and bookshops closed it’s a very odd, flat time in the book world, but I would urge anyone buying a book to see if their local bookshop is offering an online service as this may help them stay open during the crisis.
My very best wishes to you and yours and be well.

Hi Lou, I am an avid reader of yours. I was an educator for many years and wrote the books that I needed for instuction. I have turned two of the stories into beginning chapter books and would love for you to critique them. How do I go about doing that? Respectfully,

Hi Jennifer, good to hear from you. Please do email me the books and I will book you in. Waiting time is around 3-4 weeks at the moment. Payment is £30 for the first 1000 words and £5 per thousand after that, per document. If you’re not sure how much this would be, just email me at lou dot treleaven at sky dot com with the word counts of your books and I will give you a quote. Looking forward to hearing from you. Lou
I hope you’re well and staying safe. Is it too late to join the current course? Sorry that I am only just writing now.
Let me know – thanks so much, Katie
