Today is Every Shiny Thing’s half-birthday! It’s officially been out in the world for six months, and to celebrate, Cordelia and I wrote a really fun post all about collaboration. We talked to four other co-author pairs—Kristine Asselin and Jen Malone, Saadia Faruqi and Laura Shovan, Brad McLelland and Louis Sylvester, and Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich and Audrey Vernick—and put together this article about how and why each pair collaborated. They all had some great insights about the writing process and smart tips for writers and teachers. And thanks to their generosity, we’re running a #CollaborationCelebration eight-book giveaway! Check out our post and enter the giveaway if you’d like! And a big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported Every Shiny Thing over the past six months!
