It’s the start of another week and I just wanted to share with you what’s happening in my world.
First of all, I’d like to announce that I’m currently running a giveaway on the GoodReads website and the grand prize is an autographed copy of Kojo the Sea Dragon Gets Lost. It ends November 15th. To discover how you can get a copy, click the ‘Enter to Win’ link below.
If you had the chance to download an eBook version of Kojo the Sea Dragon Gets Lost, your kind gesture is much appreciated. If you’ve not yet got your copy, then what are you waiting for?
I’ve said it before and it’s worth saying again. One of the best (in my opinion) gifts you can give an author is feedback on their book. It gives authors great joy to receive positive comments about a piece of work they wrote in isolation. Below is a review that was posted on the Amazon store over the weekend about my latest book and it did bring a smile to my face.
I am so glad I found & bought “Kojo the seadragon Gets Lost”. What a beautiful kids book – the illustrations are wonderful! I got this for my kids and I am sure it will be a bedtime story keeper! Very Enjoyable! Lynn Bryan
Over the weekend, I was able to achieve a very big milestone. I finished the first draft on the next Billy and Monster book which has Thanksgiving as its dominant theme. I’ve not yet settled on a title but in this episode Billy learns to be thankful. One amazing thing you’ll discover (which I had no intention to do but unfolded as I was writing this episode) when you read this book is the origins of Monster. I’m really excited about how this story turned out as we get to meet more members of Billy’s family as well as Monster’s family
I’ve not yet settled on a title at the moment. Your ideas will be much appreciated. I haven’t seen the film yet but I really love the title ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.’ If you could think up of something as funny and outrageous for Billy’s Thanksgiving adventure, please leave your suggestions in the comments section, you’ll get a worthy mention in the book when it’s published if I use your suggestion.
I’m happy to also announce that I’ll be visiting a school in West London to do a reading for them. I’ll be signing copies of Kojo the Sea Dragon Gets Lost. This will be my first time doing a reading for this book and I’m really excited about the opportunity to read to these children as I have only gotten feedback thus far from ‘grown-ups’ I’ll be visiting them next Tuesday and will post pictures from the event on my blog. If you would like me to come and read at your local school, simply reply to this email and we’ll see what we can work out.
Do have an outstanding week and dream BIG!
