I'm Having Twins

Scared you, didn't I? I've already had a set.

A few years ago Dave came up with the idea of Eldest Daughter writing children's books. She has plenty of fodder, after all: twin sisters. Together, we wrote the first two books in the My Friend Paris series and they are now reality. I'm Having Twins is the story of the year I was pregnant with her sisters. My Twins Are Coming Home is the story of what her life was like after they were born. They are sweet stories, written from the perspective of a four-year-old. It's been a fun family project, all the way down to art directing the illustrations together and having hypothetical conversations about who will do the voiceovers in the big screen version.

This afternoon Dave received an email from an associate producer at The Bonnie Hunt Show wanting to learn more. Wow. We are officially in over our heads. I called media-savvy Kim and, during a commercial in the vice-presidential debate, she agreed to be our publicist. Stay tuned. Does anyone know where to get media training for a 10-year-old?!

P/S They are for sale on Amazon. If you want signed copies, email Dave.

And yes...I was going to post a new item on my blog, and I get the feeds of the latest posts on the blogs I read (including yours), and I clicked to start my post...realized what I had glanced at in process..."having twins"...and quickly had to go to your blog instead.

Wow - what cool news! I enjoyed the book very much, as did my girls (although they were a little confused initially...;)
