    • Most of us have wondered what others were thinking at one point or another. This story will cover the pros and cons of that aspect. At its heart, the book is about being confident in your own skin, but there are plenty of laughs (and love) along the way.
    • According to Saran, this story is a romcom, but there are also elements of magic realism mixed in. The writers wanted to make some scenes more absurd while making other scenes more tender. They’re hoping there’s something for everyone.
    • The writers addressed the Emu in the room: Why there are so many Emus on the cover.

    • Shayn stated that the intended direction for the story is to be a quirky romantic comedy with a dash of magic and mystery.
    • Saran had a great time coming up with the wacky news stories for us to investigate. They also said that writing the scenes with Emus have been the highlight of their career, or possibly their entire life.
