The book based on my radio play is coming soon!
JoYOLO by Taku and Peo. Omg I’m dying!😭
I recorded this impromptu episode in a park the other day. Disclaimer: it’s raw and unedited! Then I made this quick little video – sorry the music is so loud and dramatic but I was in ridic feeeeeels after a meeting with illustrator Peo Michie and our publisher. https://youtu.be/4LurzLhVmgI
I’m also planning to make a little doco series of how Peo and I are going to make this killer book about two girls navigating friendship, family and community expectations in Australia. (Definitely say hello if you’re a keen doco filmmaker, l’m still looking for someone).
A huuuuuge thank you to everyone who’s supported the radio play so far – actors and listeners. Honestly, I’m so grateful! And now the fun begins…I have to finish writing the full novel – 60 000+ words…at some point in time. Laaaawd, give me strength! 😩🙌🏾
Haven’t heard the play yet?
Just head over to https://taku.com.au/joyolo/ to listen to the episodes and read more about the people who helped bring it to life.
You can also listen to Chapter 1, which is Episode 40 on the podcast.
