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. How cool! It's the contract I got from asking an editor on Jacketflap
for 'friendship' (see my profile). It was published DownUnder in July and is going to reprint in December. I'm now on the second book for them - this one as sole author and illustrator. Social networking does pay off.
Next year I'll be at Bologna. Anyone apart from Ellen going? Ellen and I are booked into the same hotel. Better buy some air fares, too - it's a long swim.
Hope everyone's writing and illustrating is progressing well,
