    A little pig in a big city leads to lots of trouble! Josie Shilling"s family is too big, their cramped city house is too small, and she feels like no one is ever on her side. Then, on Thanksgiving Day, her older brother, Tom, brings home a pink, squirmy bundle wrapped in an old football jersey--a piglet he rescued from a nearby farm. Her name is Hamlet.

    Do you aim for a word count, to tackle a certain number of pages at a time, or do you go scene by scene? Hi Jodi! Alex was not the first or last agent to offer, but he was passionate about my writing and having me as a potential client. But yet… I remember clearly how it felt to love her.

    What was your plotting process like for this book and what did you learn about the plot of a story from the process? Something else? I can't say enough great things about this book! Do you feel any pressure regarding your story since that one is so well-known and beloved?

    He hid it in his dorm for two weeks and brought it home during a holiday break. The story is told with warmth and kindness as we watch Josie grow from her experiences. But I actually love revision, so even though it can be a bit scary and messy! So I made a decision to not renew any client contracts and nowadays I evaluate freelance work on a case-by-case basis.

The unlikely story of a pig in the city book

My son was about two years old when I signed with my agent. I found myself reading this book with a smile on my face while learning of Hamlet's shenanigans in the city.

Share about her development as a character and any tips you have for creating such a memorable characters. A modern day Charlotte's Web twist. After all, Hamlet is a one smart pig who learns quickly to use a litter box, fetch a flying Frisbee, open the fridge door, and climb the bunk-bed ladder.

And whoever heard of keeping a pig in the city? But the rest of the story came as a bit of a surprise during the writing process, such as the ornery neighbor, Mrs. Readers will cheer for Hamlet! And of course, loop in your publisher and agent.

The heart of the story is about love, family, sacrifice, and friendship. Now onto Jodi's interview.

THE UNLIKELY STORY OF A PIG IN THE CITY

She wants to keep Hamlet, and does her very best to juggle all her usual responsibilities with chores, homework, and gymnastics practice. My freelance work shifted a bit to social media marketing while I was juggling working on my debut novel.

Then, on Thanksgiving Day, her older brother, Tom, brings home a pink, squirmy bundle wrapped in an old football jersey—a piglet he rescued from a nearby farm.

He hid it in his dorm for two weeks and brought it home during a holiday break. Do you like to listen to music when writing? It rings true to any reader — a middle grade reader juggling school and extracurricular activities, the middle child who just wants to be noticed and appreciated, the teenager who wants to do right for all parties involved, and the adult continuing to experience all these things and recalling the big responsibilities, wishes, and dreams from childhood.

We spend a lot of time in the parks here which are so wonderful! I aim to do a few Pomodoros a day on my writing days which is not every day. Date s Used: Dec. You will not want to put this one down.

Jodi Kendall grew up in the Midwest with her family of seven and their household of countless pets, including hamsters, ducks, dogs, rabbits, an iguana, and, yes. She's an 'old soul' who loves animals, gymnastics, and her friends and family.

The story is told with warmth and kindness as we watch Josie grow from her experiences. I also wake up super early! The minute Josie holds Hamlet, she feels an instant connection. Then, on Thanksgiving Day, her older brother, Tom, brings home a pink, squirmy bundle wrapped in an old football jersey—a piglet he rescued from a nearby farm.

White and "still gives me goose bumps that our two pig books share a publishing home. What tips do you have for other debut authors who would like to attend these events as a debut author to become more well-known and promote their books?
