AFTERGLOW: Is It Bedtime Yet? – Emily Writes & Friends

AFTERGLOW: Is It Bedtime Yet? – Emily Writes & Friends

Launched at Unity Books on July 26th, Emily Writes’ second book is a collaboration with a team of other writers – some professional published authors, and all professional parents. Is It Bedtime Yet? follows Rants in the Dark, published early last year, to give Writes’ avid readers a whole range of new stories, anecdotes and advice on parenthood. As expected, the store was as full of kids as it was adults, all equally excited for the new book. Margaret Sinclair from Penguin Random House spoke about the wonderful experience of working with Emily Writes, before passing over to Emily herself. As she took up more of an editor role for this second book, Writes’ read her favourite passages from the other contributors. Finally, she called all of the kids up to the front and – with Writes’ five-year-old son Eddy leading the way – they launched the book with party poppers.

Is It Bedtime Yet? by Emily Writes & Friends, published by Penguin Random House, it available now in store and online.
