Where does the time go to? How many posts do I start that way I wonder??
We seem to be lurching through Sweltering Summer and on to Christmas from what I can gather!
So just enough time to stop by and say that it's great news we're going to have a quick radio interview on BBC Radio Devon tomorrow, 19th August at around 11 am.
Some of you may have caught my last interview last October some time with David 'Fitz' Fitzgerald. Well, they've invited me back, and this time I'll be talking to Pippa Quelch about the new second edition of Jumbo Giant Sausages and other adventures in self-publishing no doubt.
So hope you can join us in your coffee break.
In other exciting news, I've heard that two of my books (Bradley's Adventures) have been selected to take part in The Book Explorer project. They have a brilliant idea going here, and I'll probably write more about that another time as it's not launching till January next year.
Looking to other authors and illustrators... this week I'd like to make a special mention about Manuela Pentangelo, the very talented illustrator behind Sascha Martin's Rocket Ship. This is a fabulous story about a kid who's always inventing things.. and just what happens when he takes his science project into school. Not only is the story a lot of fun, but Manuela picks out such great details in her work and moves the story along with such flow (literally when his rocket is taking off!) that it's a joy to read.
She has a great page on instagram and I really recommend checking out her drawings and sketches there, there's always something great going on! Check out her other books too.
That's all folks!
