Author/Anime Color Palette Series: Melanie x Toph Beifong
Welcome to my author/anime color palette series! Where my obsession with hex codes and middle grade/graphic novels come together. I'll break down an author's photo color palette and which animated character they remind me of.
Co-host of Of the Publishing Persuasion podcast, Melanie Schubert, @M_L_Schubert, is proactive about connecting writers with the right insight. She is also the author of Gregory and the Grimbockle, published by New Wrinkle Publishing in 2017, and was a 2020 #PitchWars mentee (who shares her mentee-mentor experience about her winning dragon story in a special Pitch Wars interview).
What's Melanie's author color palette like?
Hex codes include: golden grin, pewter, peacock eyes, and olive-garchy.
Melanie continues to write mostly fantasy across several age categories. And while she lives in Melbourne, she has been writing musicals with a New Zealand performing arts company for many years. Avatar: The Last Airbender heroine, Toph Beifong, and Melanie share an affinity for travel! Toph is definitely a "boss babe" ready for the unexpected, too. She turns her blindness into a hidden strength and daringly runs away from home to teach the Last Airbender, Ang, her earthbending ways. In doing so she experiences freedom she never knew existed.
