A month later, when I got home, my advance copies were waiting for me. Some have already been mailed to the winners of the Name the Character competition. But most of the books are on their way to bookstores now, for release at the end of the month, and so I’ll be doing some running around to share them.
So here’s a list of some of the events I’m doing in the next few weeks. (Though just if you were wondering, the NSW Writers’ Centre Festival and CYA conference weren’t organised around my book’s release – just a very happy coincidence for me.)
Launch of Rescue on Nim’s Island 11:00
Come dressed as one of the new visitors to Nim’s Island!
