A big thank you to the enthusiastic staff at Collins Booksellers Sunbury who made me feel so welcome on Saturday. I had a great time visiting your lovely shop, meeting your fabulous customers and Spot!
Many of you will know that I’m fortunate to be part of the KidLitVic Meet the Publishers team. The aim behind the conference is to have an event in Melbourne where YA and children’s writers and illustrators have the opportunity to meet publishers, editors and agents. I think we succeeded brilliantly with publishers, editors, agents and attendees flooding the State Library Victoria at our second conference in May 2017.
Our team consists of Coral Vass, Jaquelyn Muller, Nicky Johnston and me. I’ve never worked with a team of such all-rounders, tireless workers, super-smart, funny (in the humourous way) women. People have asked me who did what, so here you go!
Thank you to all the children (and parents) who attended my storytime at Dymocks Camberwell today. It was a lot of fun and I met some very clever children. Thank you to Kat and her team for organising this event and making me feel so welcome. If you are in the area you should check out their well stocked shop.
I had a lovely Saturday morning at Dymocks Victoria Gardens. Thank you to all the team there for making me feel so welcome and joining in the fun and games. Make sure you drop into their lovely shop if you are in the area.
Big thank you to Kate and the team at Collins Booksellers Moonee Ponds yesterday for welcoming me to their store. Great to meet you all and the lovely people of Moonee Ponds. Special hello to 3 year old Jordan who has already read a 1000 books!
Thank you to everyone who stopped by “Three Four Knock on the Door” and said hello on Saturday and a great big thank you to LJ and Danielle for hosting me. Check out their lovely shop at 2/188 Bay Street, Port Melbourne if you are looking for that special book or gift. http://www.threefour.com.au/
