Yes, I’m emotional because the 5th annual PiBoIdMo has come to a close. It’s been an incredibly satisfying few months for me—from organizing guest bloggers, to reading their sage advice, to receiving thankful emails from you, the participants. I am grateful for your feedback. Knowing that the kidlit writing community has benefitted from this challenge is my greatest reward.
Last month, the lovely Susie Caron visited my blog corner as part of her busy virtual tour celebrating the release of her books, Twee’ and I Am Twee’ which are part of her ‘Between You and Me’ series of children’s books.
Susie kindly invited me to visit her blog. It turned out to be fortuitous timing, as I am also celebrating the release of a new children’s picture book, A Christmas Tail co-authored with award winning children’s author, Donna Smith.
It was enjoyable ‘chatting’ with Susie about my writing journey, current writing projects, favourite books, and of course the new children’s picture book release.
To view our ‘chat’, just click on the following link.
Thanks again Susie. I had a lot of fun. x
Hi everyone. Apologies to talk eBook sales on a Sunday but it looks like our 50% discount on A Christmas Tail, co-authored by Donna Smith and Helen Ross, is still available on Amazon.
If you are thinking of purchasing the eBook format of our children’s picture book, I would suggest you order today. The offer is due to finish this weekend, whereby the price will go back to $9.99.
During our fabulous cyber launch celebration on Monday 2 December you may have ‘discovered’ a little more about Donna, myself and the book’s illustrator, Aaron Pocock. But because we were all so busy, we decided to keep the speeches fairly short. Consequently, Donna was invited back to Spider Ink Press to chat a little more about herself and her busy ‘writerly’ life.
You will also see Aaron sketch (via YouTube) one of the characters from our book.
So please pop on over. If you can make it now, that would be wonderful.
Hope you are having an inspirational day.

BUT I DON’T HAVE YOUNG CHILDREN OR GRAND CHILDREN
No problem, we understand. However, you could consider purchasing a copy to donate to a library, school, child or family in need. Some parents can’t afford to buy Christmas presents.
Thanks to everyone for celebrating our cyber book launch yesterday. And if you missed it, the party is still in full swing. Festivities will finish Fri 6 December (technically speaking).
Just pop round to:
Grab some cheesecake treats, and a glass of bubbly or juice. And, don’t forget to leave a comment.
