So I’ve just finished my final draft of Nothing’s Prefect, it’s in my agent’s hands before I send it to Penguin. It’s always a nervewhacking time when your manuscript is read by someone else…and I do like my conversations with my agent, even if it’s things that I don’t wanna hear hahaha, but it’s for my own good…
Especially when you see that it’s just part of the process…I had my book launch for Punchlines on the weekend at Childrens Bookshop in Beecroft. Paul McDonald has always been a champion for me, helping my first book get out there through his word. And he does have a lot of clout in the industry, he knows his books inside out.
So I couldn’t imagine a better place to have my fans and friends come out. My editor Heather and illustrator Evi were there to fly the flag for Penguin. A combo of high school pals, writing friends and teacher-librarians all together, it was cHEwY!
I’m off to Adelaide next month for the first half of my May Gibbs Creative Fellowship, so be prepared for lots of blogging entries as I write book number 6! Yep, that’s right.
