Wow! What a busy and beautiful month it has been since the magical full moon of September saw the launches of our debut titles Forever Completely and The Star Princess And The Kitchen Witch! We are ecstatic to see these fabulous books getting the five star praise they deserve and look forward to their very bright futures.
Having just sat down to administration for the first time since launch week, we are also pleased to be able to share a brief over view of our launch schedule for the next six months. Let’s just say we like to keep ourselves on our toes…and we are open to submissions too!
Of course it has been a busy old time for our authors as well…
Stephanie Shields has been busy tweeting the socks off her gorgeous debut children’s book (The Star Princess) and her dad is doing a fabulous job promoting her in schools where she grew up! We also know there is a fantastic interview with Stephanie coming soon on the beautiful Quiet Radicals blog, which will be quite something for us all to look forward to. The reception her book has received so far is wonderful, a resounding five stars across the board. One reader was so taken with the allegorical she has donated a copy to a domcestic violence refuge.
Of course, the illustrators have been busy too, presenting Mrs Meacock – the literature loving headmistress of their Essex primary school – with a signed copy for the school library.
Meanwhile, J.J. Patrick has been busy talking all things poverty and words.
In this Belper News article published at the end of September, he spoke to the home town crowd about whistleblowing, losing everything, and creating a new world for himself out of the ashes. Not being one for a rest however, he rushed over to the award winning Linda’s Book Bag to prove what a disobedient little so and so he can be, before taking the reins from the Hazardous Hippo for a guest spot on life, the universe and writing novels on a sofa. His unique tale is also getting the five star treatment, with readers left wanting more…and a film…
So, that’s a quick update on the news from the road home. See you all soon!
