It's out and being tried

On her MySpace blog, a lady from Sparks says she will try all of the '101 Things To Do Before You Grow Up' activities, which I co-wrote for Hinkler Books, and keep reporting (Kiki's blog) - so the book must be available in the US now, as well as Australia.

About me:

I write and occasionally illiustrate for children and adults. I'm British but live in Australia, where I'm Coordinator of SCBWI Queensland. For decades, I've dreamed of spending time in Nevada and Arizona. Thank you for having me here.

I'm also on the committee of the Children's Book Council of Australia and involved with Book Links Queensland Inc., which is trying to develop a Children's Literature Centre similar to the Seven Stories Centre in Newcastle, in the UK.

I hope I can be helpful.

My websites:
www.writing-for-children.com
www.myspace.com/writingforchildren

I've started work on too many projects, but have two picture books (the pictures above are in one of them) just about ready to send out, two NF's well on their way and a YA that I can see will take a lot lot longer than I'd like it to.

One thing I've learned this year is that Networking works! I asked an editor on www.jacketflap.com for 'friendship' and along with acceptance was asked if I'd be interested in a project - now completed. The book will hopefully come out worldwide in 2009.'

Here are a couple of old ones. The calligraphy book was published by Allen and Unwin, and in the UK and NZ by Unwin Hyman/HarperCollins as 'A Manual of Calligraphy'.

New Media

At our Queensland SCBWI meeting a couple of weeks week ago in Borders, we talked about stories available for radio and new media. One of our local Brisbane radio stations, 99.7FM, is on the constant look out for 'books that can be read on air during programs for young children' - yet as we know, picture books, which are the main fodder for early age groups, replace words with illustrations. So there aren't many modern 'traditional books' that can be used.



As authors and where… Continue

Use Your PowerPoint

Many authors and illustrators produce PowerPoint presentations that they use when speaking to audiences. The files can be stored on CDs, perhaps hard-copies printed, and the results sold as merchandise or distributed as publicity. If these form the limits to the uses you make of PowerPoints, you are under-utilising their potential.



YouTube videos generally have to be less than 8 minutes to have a small enough file size to meet the hosting requirements. This can be… Continue
