Dcan shout-out: Robin Elizabeth, Author

Robin Elizabeth is an author we’ve read and admired for her series, What Happens in Book Club, so we were thrilled when she hired us to edit her non-fiction, Confessions of a Mad Mooer, Postnatal Depression Sucks.

Providing copy editing and proofreading (or as we said on this project, proofediting) for Mad Mooer inspired us to add editing to the list of services Dynamic Canvas Inc. provides. Thank you, Robin, for lighting this particular fire under us!

Here’s the back blurb. We really encourage you to buy the book. It’s charming, heart-wrenching, and funny as heck.


What happens when a mother says she isn’t okay, and nobody’s listening?

book coverThat’s the situation Sydney mother, Robin, faced after the birth of her identical twin boys. She already had a needy toddler and a husband who worked long hours, but no matter where she turned, her desperate cries for help went unanswered. It wasn’t until her newborn twins ended up in hospital with bronchiolitis that the medical staff realised it was Robin who needed the most care.

The hospital diagnosed her with postnatal depression, or postpartum depression as it is known in the US, and sent her and the boys to a psychiatric hospital. Inside the Psychiatric Mothers and Baby unit Robin finally found her confidence, not only as a parent, but also as a writer and a worthy person in her own right. Her periods returned, too, but she didn’t consider that as much of a blessing.

Confessions of a Mad Mooer is her story, told with warmth, humour, and unflinching honesty. A must read for anyone who has been touched by postnatal or postpartum depression, and a fascinating read for any creative or performing artist who has ever struggled with their own mental health.

Dcan shout-out: Topsy Books!

Splash_TopsyLogoThis week we’re toasting Topsy Books and Livres Topsy, online bookstores that sell picture books and e-books for children, written by Canadian author Joanne Lécuyer.

Here’s what Joanne says about these books:

At Topsy Books, we believe that it’s important for kids to read books that touch upon important life experiences in a way that is imaginative, fun and non-violent. We use fantasy fiction as a backdrop for our stories. We have our characters face challenges and lessons and let them show us a positive way of dealing with them.

We love the colourful drawings, done by a selection of talented illustrators that Joanne hand-picks for her stories. These books are fun for the whole family to read together.

Joanne also does workshops to teach children about writing. Learn about this and more by going to the Topsy Books and Livres Topsy websites.

You can also follow Joanne or Topsy Books on Twitter, Facebook, and Goodreads.
