This year, Thanksgiving might look a bit different with families meeting virtually, social distancing, or postponing the holiday altogether.

Night Heron Media is here to help with the perfect gift to show your friends or family how much they mean to you: Giving, by Muhammad Sadiq.
Choosing a title for your new manuscript can be a daunting task.

Despite the difficulties, giving your project the right title can help bring it to life.
Children’s books are short, sure, but writing a good children’s book is only simple at the surface level. Some of our most beloved and widespread quotes actually originate from children’s books. “Promise me you’ll remember, you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think” is a Winnie the Pooh quote. “Real isn’t how you are made. It’s a thing that happens to you.” That one is from The Velveteen Rabbit. Made for kids or not, these sentiments have resonance for everyone. So...how do you do that as a writer, exactly?
