People have asked me from time to time ‘why did you choose to write books about different types of families Bronny’. It’s fairly simple, I decided to start with this particular topic because their was nothing available for my own child about our family situation.
As you probably already know, I went through pregnancy on my own and after looking for books about single mother situations I couldn’t find any that actually used the words ‘single mum’. You see I wanted children to identify with this type of family and to then feel that it was normal – which it is!
If you look at Sensis statistics in Australia you can see that single parent families, blended families and other types of families that are not mum, dad and 2.5 kids make up close to 50% of families!
With that in mind, I wanted to share with you some feedback I received from one of our readers in the USA. After sending My Two Super Dads express post before Christmas it was with surprise that I received a note asking when the book would arrive! Whilst I was in the process of locating the book, I sent a digital copy hoping this would at least be something until I tracked down Australia Post. In between me doing all of this the hard copy of the book arrived and I received the following lovely email, I hope you find it as charming as I did ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Thank you so much for your reply!
I wanted to let you know that the mailman delivered the book today! (If only I’d waited two days before writing…) I’m sorry if we put you to a lot of trouble.
I did want to thank you for sending the digital copy. You should have seen my wife’s face, she was elated. 😀 Yours is the first two fathers book she ever bought sight unseen (usually she gets them through the library first) but she was so charmed by the sample and cover on the website that she couldn’t resist. We both thought it was marvelous and are so pleased to have the hardcopy in hand.
Thank you for the beautiful art and wonderful message you put out into the world with your books.
To all my readers a massive thank you and please do as Evin did, get in touch and let me know if you love the books! I have now finished writing My Super Single Dad and Muntsa has begun work on the illustrations. We can’t wait to bring you this next installment in our My Super Family series and want all of you out their to remember you really are SUPER!
