Writing, writing, writing
Well, it’s been a busy time and I’m flat out writing a 4th Takeshita Demons book….YAY! This does mean I’ve been massively distracted from blogging (sorry!), but I do tend to go into my cave when the writing’s really working.
And it’s working! (I always say that in the beginning of a book, then fall apart in the finale for a Long Troubling Period before finding my way again.)(Fingers crossed and here’s to avoiding the Long Troubling Period this time round, if possible!)
Childrens Book Week Month
And of course…it’s AUGUST! Which means Australian libraries and schools are gearing up for heaps of fabulous authorly writerly artistly events. This year I’m busy for every day of Book Week, and I can’t wait to get started! I love meeting readers and sharing spooky demon stories, so watch out!! If your school is coming to see me, I’m already thinking of ways to scare you 🙂
And Monstering on?
And just to prove that the third book is just as exciting as the first, here’s a little proud moment for me to share 🙂 (YAY!) This week I received a catalogue in the mail from my publisher, Frances Lincoln Childrens Books, and voila! In it was a sneak peak of their new fiction titles for January-July 2012: Wee hee! Monster Matsuri was on the back page 🙂 I’m so proud 🙂
Well…enough chest-beating. Time to get back to the real work of WRITING! Cheers for now and see some of you soon!
