Spent the day signing mountains of books at Berkelouws Leichardt, Berkelouws Balgowlah, Dymocks Castle Towers, The Children’s Bookshop Beecroft and Better Read Than Dead in Newtown. Also, to be in theme with the book, we handed out cockroach cupcakes!
Quite a few ethusiastic bookshops have jumped the gun (who can blame them, it’s hard to resist the urge to put a book in a kid’s hand) but officially today is publication day for THE PESKI KIDS. Thank you @DymocksSydney for the fantastic window display!
Just popped in to The Bookshop Bowral get a book for my daughter, and the staff wouldn’t let me leave until I signed a big stack of THE PESKI KIDS. I tried to argue I couldn’t because I had my dog waiting outside, and they said to just bring Henry into the shop.
You know your publisher loves your book when they turn it into an awesome cartoon for the book trailer!
I was asked to advise young writers entering the Total Quack Up competition. If you want to enter, the competition closes on the 29th of July so get writing. Here’s the link with all the details Total Quack Up Writing Competition
