Reading with a chance of tacos

The journey of a picture book – from a manuscript to a bookstore


On today’s show we chat to a first-time author and follow the journey of her picture book from submitting to acceptance, what marketing ideas she has, and how she’ll work to make it a success. Plus we share a very spicy chilli con carne taco with guacamole and sour cream. Yum. All that and more. Let’s start the show.


Today’s guest is a writer and a primary school teacher who has her first picture book (published by Five Mile Books) coming out in January 2024. It’s titled, The Dinosaur Did it! but I don’t know that it did.

To find out, along with her amazing author journey to publication and her awesome plans to market the book, please put your hands together for the inspiring, go-getting, creative talent that is, Ruth McGurk.
